There's a new trend in the gaming industry: cooperating so that everybody either wins or loses.
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.
