There are times we like to sit down for a multi-hour game session full of strategy and camaraderie. Other times we just want to grab something that doesn’t require a lot of planning to kill the time. Even better is when you have friends over and need something to entertain them all. We found a little diamond-in-the-rough in our newest game, Think Again.
First I want to complement their packaging designers on a great box design. Typically games are sent in a two-piece box and you know what that means. Eventually you end up with a crushed lid or bottom with pieces falling out whenever you move it. Not so with Think Again. A heavy-duty one-piece box with a magnetic lid keeps everything neat and orderly. Bravo.
Made by a company with a funny name, Le Scorpion Masque, and distributed in the U.S. by iello Games, Think Again is a trivia-type card game with a funny twist: Sometimes you must answer the questions correctly and other times you MUST answer them incorrectly! Instead of trying to explain it further, take a couple minutes to watch Le Scorpion Masque’s video thoroughly explaining the game play.
Suggested for ages 10 and up, our 11-yr old had no problem with the majority of the questions. Our 9-yr old fumbled with a couple of them, but not enough to ruin the experience for her.
Of course since I had read the instructions ahead of time (and I assume am a little smarter), the first round went to me, much to their dismay.
We played with three players, the minimum needed, but Think Again! accommodates up to 10 people! Each person gets a turn to ask questions as well as answer for multiple rounds. Once we got past the initial instructions the entire game lasted around 10-15 minutes – perfect for a ‘quickie’!
Think you might be up to the challenge? With a suggested MSRP of under $15 you’ll probably find your own copy at a local boutique game store next to other great offerings by iello like “King of Tokyo” or “Titanium Wars“. Be sure to follow iello on Facebook and Twitter to see what their next exciting release will be.
