A friend of mine recently posted a list of board games that she had as a kid (and wished she had never gotten rid of). She had quite an interesting list. So I decided to go check out the site that she linked to and discovered a game that I think I’m going to have to buy. The game is called THE AMAZING DUNNINGER MIND READING GAME. Here’s a quote from the web site that describes the game.
Based on extensive research, Dunninger has developed the Mind Reading Game, to prove that anyone can read a thought! Not a game of chance, the Mind Reading Game provides an experiment to demonstrate that a coincidental thought can be gained by two persons without the aid of recognized communication to a degree that precludes the possibility of chance.
The game includes a “receiver board with built-in temples.” I really want to know what that means. This game combines my interest in games with my interest in weird beliefs. What more could I ask for?
