The rules of The Mind are very simple: each player has the same number of cards. Cards are numbered from 1-100 with no duplicates.
Suppose there are 3 people and it's Round 5. Therefore, each person is dealt 5 cards and together, without talking or making any sign language, the group must discard their cards in ascending order.
No spoilers here! This game is absolutely fun.
The company is Pandasaurus Games. I have not seen them at the NY Toy Fair. Hopefully, I'll run into them there in February. The company is based in Austin, TX - one of the coolest cities in the US, except for the summer months.

My Puzzle friend Glenn Iba has been a regular attendee of the annual New York Puzzle Party. The last couple of years, he has shown everybody his progress on making this game. Finally, it’s published.
The object is to swipe up/down/left/right to get all the balls to the targets at the same time.
There are approximately 350 levels and they get plenty hard.
Yes, some levels have just 2 or 3 balls. Others have 5 balls. Hard stuff.
This game is free. So go for it.
Glenn’s old game Monorail from 2011.
Similar games (this list is incomplete):
Movez Pretty much the same as Block Mania but it has 1680 levels. I've solved 592 of them. That's probably enough.
Frozen Ice Cubes What's different: there's a point of 'no return'.
Vubu What's different: the vubu men have different powers. Very sophisticated, very intelligent. Possibly the very best in this genre.
Escapology, reviewed by Nicola Salmoria. He told me about this game ages ago. I played it and enjoyed it, but never blogged about it.

This robot will scramble and solve your Rubik's Cube. $55. But you must have a 'GAN' model Rubik's Cube with holes around the center squares. It has 5 spindles to grip 5 of the 6 faces. Reminds me of the record setting machine that had 6 spindles and solved the cube in under 1 second.

Shanghai Youyi Electronic Technology Co., Ltd. The object is to get the arrows to the yellow targets.
This game has a lot of potential for many more levels.
Happy New Year Everybody.

I'm not sure how many levels there are. And I'm not sure if I completed them all. At the moment, the program is taking me back to the beginning.

Logic Flow starts out very easy and gets tough very quickly. At the moment, I'm stuck on #52.

Symmetrica: Minimalistic arcade game is fun! There are 16 free levels. 36 extra levels cost $.99.
Each level has multiple guns that must shoot targets. Sounds boring! It's not because the guns are rotating slowly and often traveling around a defined path. Sometimes the targets are moving too.
Yes it's a shooting game. But I would classify it more as an artistic game.
Sorry, no images to display. Trust me, this game is a winner. I completed all the levels over 2 days.

We've seen this type of game many times before. The graphics are great. About 30 levels. Not hard at all. Unfortunately, ads.
Strictly for novice puzzlers.

Drop Drop! is a point scoring game. You have to match colors. I played it last night and the game would not end! Every time I was on the verge of losing, I would get good pieces that cleared the board. I checked the leaderboard, and I was #1. I was also the only person on the leaderboard. Ha!
The graphics are very good.
