There are certain games that I play even when I know they don’t fit my personality and I won’t do well. Hidden role or bluffing games both require some element of acting or at least the ability to maintain a straight face so people don’t know you aren’t being truthful. I wear my emotions on my sleeve and I’m easy to read, I guess. I’m certain I’m not alone. While these mind-reading traits don’t bode well for bluffing games, they are very helpful in cooperative or team games.
That idea is what has made The Mind from Pandasaurus Games so popular. It’s based on the ability of players to read each other! We included The Mind in our guide to awesome card games, but the small package makes it ideal for stuffing into stockings as well. The affordable price tag makes this an awesome item to have on hand for gift exchanges or an add-on when you feel like something you purchased needs a little extra umph. Grab a couple for Christmas then enter to win a copy for yourself to help you start off the new year in The (right) Mind!
