If you’re looking for an interesting card game The Mind may well be it. In The Mind, players try to play cards in ascending order, problem is it’s a mind game, because you’re not allowed to communicate. Sort of similar in a way to “The Game”, but more strict.
Pandasaurus Games are releasing the English language version in July (though you can get it on the grey import market, it’s language independent once you get the rules).
If you’re lucky enough to be going to Origins, Pandasaurus Games may well have a few copies available their booth (#965). It’s also a 2018 Spiel des Jahres Nominee this year, so worth a look.
We’ll be bringing you a full review soon.
