OVERVIEW OF BRAINSPIN
You would be amazed how creative your friends can be! This game will test your imagination and push you to come up with answers that might be slightly controversial. Simply look at a shape and list things that you see in the image. Unique answers are key, as they earn you points!
To setup, shuffle the cards and place the deck in the middle of the table. Get a timer ready and set it for a minute. The game is ready to begin!
Gameplay is simple. Place a card on the table, where all players can see it facing up. Set the timer for one minute and begin the countdown. Each player will write a list of the many things they see in the shape. When the timer is halfway done, rotate the card ninety degrees so that players may obtain a different perspective.
When the timer is finished, players are done writing. Go around the group and have them read their answers aloud for everyone to hear. Unique answers earn a point, this is subjective.
After everyone has earned their points, a new card is laid down and gameplay continues in this way until three cards have been judged.
END OF GAME
The game comes to an end after three cards have been played. The player with the highest score at the end of the game wins!
