    I'm still curious if you have a third hand we don't know about or someone else was with you? Maybe just some fancy editing. Thanks for the update!

    7:53 Glad that you've corrected the "position" of the advanced rules section on the rulebook. I pointed that little mistake on the deleted video, worried that you might still got that wrong. But you didn't, so yay! Okay I'm gonna rewatch this video from start to finish again.

    Played several times. Was a nice game to play with a lot of people. Pretty great to see that by playing it more we all are more synced with each other when to play a card.

    Thanks Rodney. Love your videos even more with the new format. I'm a video editor and the stationary camera with clean cuts are much better than the handheld follow method. Great job. But you didn't put the game back in the same place you found it. Now you're never going to be able to find it again. 😀

    You also cannot play a card that you wouldn’t think are the lowest. If you for instance get 95,97 and 98 you can’t play the 95 right when you start if you think you need to save lives this round and draw out all the lower cards

    I saw my sons play and beat level 7 without cheating (there were 5 people at the table). That was a great afternoon. This game is just incredible.

    I own this card game and It is MINDblowing. I ended 4 player maximum level and I think It Is one of the best collaborative "party" game I ever had. Thrilling and suspence from the beginning to the end. And you, Rodney, you are the best.

    Just all agree on playing a card of value 'X' exactly X seconds after the round started (mentally keeping track of time).
    That does not violate any verbal communication rule of the game.
    The sad thing is that if you even suggest that way of playing to your group it will have effectively ruin the game because no one can force thhemself not to apply a legal strategy that is a guaranteed win ^^. Don't you guys agree? 🙂

    Hi Rodney, I've been really enjoying the new, casual style of the past few videos. The production values are still first class, but moving around the set more and changing up the costume makes it feel more homely without loosing the professionalism.

    I'm not even sure what the mistake even was? I watched the last video in it's entirety and that exactly how I play. This video, minus the "advance rules" being covered, seems the same.

    I buy this game after watching your tutorial video because I think this will be a lot of fun to play with my family. But when I searched for your video again, I was worry for not seeing it.

    This game is… interesting. It feels fun to solve the puzzle, figure out how to do it while following the rules, then create a new rule that cancels the exploit, and try again :3

    I really like your new intro/outro style, especially with the fixed camera rather than handheld. It appears much more inviting and really feels like you are inviting us to join you at the table to learn how to play. This game has intrigued me since seeing it played on GameNight! I'd love to give it a try sometime.

    I do like your new intros. Static camera – not too much behind the scenes, i.e. we don't see your lights and rigs – more informal, but still professional. Keep it going… 🙂 Oh, and I do love The Mind.

    Thank you Rodney for this another wonderful video!
    I have a question about the throwing star. Let's say player A has a 25, 34, 39 in his/her hand, player B 35, 37, 40, player C 41, 80, 90. After playing the star, we place on the table cards 25, 35, and 41. How the play continues after that? We fill the gaps playing regularly, card after card (34, 37, 39, 40, 80, 90), or are we allowed to show the values between those "lowest" numbers (34 which is between A and B players lowest cards and 37, 39, 40, which are between B and C)? If the first case is true, I guess we should put the "star-placed" cards on the pile when they are the next in order.

    Thanks for the video Rodney. I'm a little surprised though that you have a longer intro since you talked about trying to shorten up these instructional videos. I'll be honest I clicked and watched just to find out how you took almost 10 minutes to explain the set up and gameplay of The Mind. Still great content though. Take care,

    Okay, now I know hot to play. I've seen pics of this game all over social media but didn't really get the idea of what it was all about until now. I think the non-verbal communication would make the game fun, especially when playing with good friends. Could even become humorous with the right friends. Thanks!

    Couldn't everyone mentally count 1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi and place the cards down according to the count? Plus use the stop signal to recalibrate the group count? Or all eyes circle around each person, staring at player 1 and mentally counting 1, then stare at player two and count two and so on. It seems the game has a strategic loophole that anyone can easily win. 🤷‍♂️

    At around 6:09 you said that the 35 was the lowest card just revealed, but the 25 was.
