Donor Spotlight: The Mind (Coiledspring)

The Mind is more than just a game. It’s an experiment, a journey, a team experience in which you can’t exchange information, yet will become one to defeat all the levels of the game.

The deck contains cards numbered 1-100, which players collectively try play into a single pile in ascending order without communicating which cards they hold. You simply stare into one another’s eyes, and when you feel the time is right, you play your lowest card! If no one holds a card lower than what you played the game continues! However if someone did, players discard all cards lower than the one played, and you lose one life.

The game is played in a series of levels, in which each player receives a hand of cards equal to the number of the level: one card in level 1, two cards in level 2, etc.

Complete all the levels, and you win!
