Product Description

Product Description

Linq is not a word game, it's not a strategy game and it's not a bluffing game. But all 3 elements are combined in this exciting and extremely addictive game. The object is to guess which 2 players have the "Linq." If you have it, you must think like your partner and connect with him or her. But you don't know who your partner is and this is only the beginning.

From the Manufacturer

4 cards, 1 pair 100 reasons why you should be right. It's not a word game. It's not a strategy game. It's not a bluffing game, yet all three of these elements are combined in this uniquely simple, excitingly fun, and extremely addictive game: LINQ. The object of the game is to guess which two players are the LINQ. If you are the LINQ, you must think like your partner, and connect with him or her. The only problem is, you don't know who your partner is!

Product Description:

This game comes in a normal box with a small box of cards, basic "quick" instructions, detailed instructions, two dry erase boards, two small dry erase markers, two pads of paper, and six small pencils. If you wanted to use your own supplies, you probably could. The concept of the game is rather simple so I don't know why there are two sets of instructions. There is also a small discrepancy between the two sets of instructions regarding the scoring of the bluffing players that could lead to some confusion. I think the box could have been designed to make more efficient use of space since there really shouldn't be too much to the game besides the cards.

I don't know if this is my favorite game but it combines word association and bluffing which are both mechanics that I enjoy. I think my problem with games like this is that depending on who you play with it might be too easy. I think some people are better are psychological games than others (or maybe it's just that people are bad at bluffing and some games rely more heavily on the bluffing aspect). In any case it could conceivably work in a party setting or if people have been drinking or just having lots of fun and not taking it too seriously. I think it's also worth a look because it's a fraction of the price of other party games and it has supplies you can cannibalize for other games (e.g. the pencils).

This game really suffers from being supposedly for 4 players or more. Personally, I wouldn't play this with less than 6 after trying it out as a four player game. Also, bluffing games just don't tend to work out with our group. That doesn't mean this is a bad game though! I can see this working really well the more players involved. Though, I must admit, after looking over the French version, I believe I'd prefer that MUCH more than the American.

Linq is a wonderful game of social deduction that is equally fun for hardcore board gamers and people who have never played anything more complex than Scrabble. It is fast, intuitive, and is great for large groups.

With that said, this particular edition of Linq is really low quality. I purchased it because it appears to be the only English-Language printing of the game, but I am more likely to make my own set than to play with the one I bought. In the French edition, the clue words are all printed on standard size high quality cards and there are 10 words per card. In this edition, they are printed on this pieces of cardboard that are easy to damage, lose, or mix up (thus ruining the game). The whiteboard that comes with the game is kind of cool, but I would rather have better clue cards any day.

I would absolutely recommend that everyone buy AN edition of this game, just not this one. If there are no other versions of the game in English and that is your only language option then I would say buy it, learn the game, and make your own clue cards. Once you have done that, you will have hours of gaming fun. Until then, good luck.

After playing this for the first time with friends, I purchased two copies of the game; one for myself and another as a gift. The game is tons of fun, especially while playing with more intelligent people. That's not to say that all can't have fun, but the better the group is at word association, the more fun the game will be. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys word games or to anyone who is up for a challenge!

All that being said, the quality of the game is rather poor. Cards are printed on cheap cardstock, thin and prone to damage, and the marker that comes with it is barely functional. Pick up a new marker and just don't damage the cards and you'll have tons of fun.

Also, does anyone know if there is an expansion pack for the word cards?

This is quite a fun game. It's great for either family game night or as a party game with friends! The only problem I have encountered is if you play with friends who tend to connect too well. There are some people out there that seem to just know what the other is thinking. A couple of my friends are like that and for some games one has to cover their ears when the other goes otherwise no one has a shot! Linq is good since you never know who the connected people are so it adds another element.
