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.

In more detail, the deck contains cards numbered 1-100, and during the game you try to complete 12, 10, or 8 levels of play with 2, 3, or 4 players. In a level, 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. Collectively you must play these cards into the center of the table on a single discard pile in ascending order but you cannot communicate with one another in any way as to which cards you 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, great, the game continues! If someone did, all players discard face up all cards lower than what you played, and you lose one life.

You start the game with a number of lives equal to the number of players. Lose all your lives, and you lose the game. You start with one shuriken as well, and if everyone wants to use a shuriken, each player discards their lowest card face up, giving everyone information and getting you closer to completing the level. As you complete levels, you might receive a reward of a shuriken or an extra life. Complete all the levels, and you win!

For an extra challenge, play The Mind in extreme mode with all played cards going onto the stack face down. You don't look at the cards played until the end of a level, losing lives at that time for cards played out of order.

    5/5

    Passionnant, percutant, un jeu qui fait chavirer son public. Au point de se demander: mais est-ce vraiment un jeu?

    Mutants télépathes bienvenus.

    5/5
    Si certains goguenardent sur l'aspect visuel du jeu et de ses lapins accompagnés de Shuriken, j'ai la conviction intime que c'était le meilleur choix pour un tel jeu. The mind ne joue pas sur la réflexion mais sur la sensation à l'autre, sans comprendre tous les tenants et aboutissements lorsque l'on joue une carte, l'aspect va dans ce sens, une étrangeté visuelle et incompris apportant un réel mysticisme au jeu. Wolfgang Warsch nous plonge dans un univers lychéen, suréealiste, une sorte de trou noir où pour sortir il faudra trouver la bonne combinaison de cartes permettant d'accéder à une autre forme d'existence. Les lumières blanches du jeu me donnent également cette sensation de mort et de ma réincarnation en un être fantasmagorique : Le lapin ninja ! ​ La règle du jeu commence d'ailleurs par cette phrase incroyable : « Nous ne faisons plus qu'un ! » Sommes-nous des êtres bloqués au purgatoire tel les héros Lost et tentant vainement d'échapper à leur forme d'existence ? Ne faudrait-il pas non voir The Mind comme un jeu mais plutôt comme une renaissance de notre moi intérieur en adéquation avec 1, 2 ou 3 autres êtres humains avec qui l'on partage cette expérience surréaliste ? J'ai la forte sensation d'avoir affaire ici à une vraie œuvre d'art, incompréhensible et mystique comme la fin de 2001 l'odyssée de l'espace. Certains avec Kubrick n'ont pas voulu accepter ou comprendre qu'il ne fallait justement rien tenter de comprendre et voudront chercher voire même trouver la solution au jeu! Certains oseront, c'est déjà fait, de critiquer. Critiquer sans voir, en regardant ailleurs... "Assez du buzz!" Disent-ils ​Mais quel buzz? Je leur réponds. ​Avez-vous un buzz quand Picasso ou Basquiat terminaient leur dernière pièce? Avez-vous un buzz quand Bowie ou les Beatles composaient? Le chef d'oeuvre n'a pas besoin du Buzz messieurs. Il existe, point.
