Game Schooler Recommendation

Rarely do we recommend “party games,” but this game works with everyone. Hive Mind encourages quick thinking and promotes literacy. To succeed, you need to predict what the other players at the table might pick instead of your personal biases. Folks stretch out of their comfort zone and find common denominators wherever possible. Perhaps most importantly, Hive Mind facilitates group discussions in a fun and approachable way!

Game Overview

In Hive Mind™, players answer trivia and opinion questions trying to match their answers with other players, scoring points for each match they achieve. They don’t have to be correct! They just have to be the same as what other players think. Each round, players will roll the die to determine how many lowest scoring answers move down the player board. Then a question will be asked, and answers given and scored. Once one or more players moves lower than level six, they are eliminated from the Hive Mind and everyone else wins!
