We played Mystify at our recent game night with friends and family. Here is the scoop. Mystify is a game based around word and number scrambles. The object of the game is to be the first to solve the word or number scramble. There are 5 different card categories and for each category hints are given as to what the scramble might be. For instance, hints might be - Literary Figure; Popular First Name; Brand Name Product; Popular 70's Movie; Living Creature; Part of a human body, etc. The card reader reads out the letters or numbers (which are scrambled) and players race against each other to solve the scramble. Whoever blurts out the answer first wins the round and is able to advance on the board. The great thing about this game is that everyone plays every round. This keeps all players interested and with a vested interest in paying attention at all times. Since everyone plays at the same time this is a fantastic party game. You really can't go wrong if you want an all inclusive game to play at your game nights!

This is a fantastic party game. With so many different card categories and some many questions, we play it time and time agian. The game definitely has staying power, especially at parties. Playing board games at parties can sometimes get stale when people have to wait their turn. Mystify allows every player (except the card reader - which rotates) to play every round. Once the timer is turned, players race against eachother to solve the scramble. Whoever answers correctly advances on the board. Each question comes with a clue and it depends on the card category as to what the clue is. This keeps the game extremely interesting. The most fun of all is when two players blurt out an answer at the same time. This is a challenging, fun and educational game - We definitely reccomend it! I really love this game!

We love word games, but all word games are based around forming words -- this game changes all that. The premise of the game is based around solving word scrambles and number scrambles. There is a clue provided with each category so that the players know what direction to look in. I highly recommend this game.

This is a party game if I ever did see one. Everyone plays every round so nobody is bored waiting for their turn. The board is a simple race track and sometimes we leave the baord at home and play this in the car. All players race to solve the scramble and the categories provide not only different subject areas but varying levels of difficulty. The 'numbers' category is an interesting twist. Good, old fashion fun and a refreshing change to some of the mindless game out there -- I recommend it. I love word games and this is one of the best.

This is fun for people who can unscramble words at about the same pace, but if you have a large group, some of the people will feel left out and sit on the "start" square the entire game. When I played with 5 people, 3 of us were having fun and almost winning, while the other two were still next to each other at the beginning of the board. If they had just been playing each other, they would have had fun, but with us, it took away some of the fun. So just be careful with who you play it with.

This is a great game to play in groups. We had about 10 people playing at once. Nobody got bored because everyone played every round (we rotated the card reader each round). We love games like this one with a timing element. Once the timer was turned and the clue was given, the fun began with players screaming out answers to be able to advance on the board. The great fun about this game is the head to head challenge between all players. We definitely recommend it, you won't be disappointed!

Knowing what a word game buff I am, my sister got this game for me during the holidays and we ended up playing several times together. We once played with up to 14 people, which was something. It doesn't take long to get the hang of it, and the level of difficulty is just right. Deciphering the Scrambles (as the jumbled words and numbers are called) is quite challenging, especially as you are up against the clock. I particularly like the `Names' category (I was the first to solve my husband's name, which actually came up during a game). Two thumbs up for this one.

Playing Mystify is so much fun. There are countless scrambles asking about famous actors, movies, car models, historical figures, etc. The 'number' scrambles test your knowledge of trivia - interesting facts such as the average length of a crocodile, the distance between cities, the year actors and movies won oscars, etc. keep your mind racing. With so many questions, we play this game time and time again. The best part is that everyone gets a shot at every question (that is except the card reader). The card is read, the timer is flipped and you have 30 seconds to race against other players for the right answer. What a great night of entertainment!

This game is a blast from start to finish, and refreshing to boot - I haven't had an intellectual challenge like this for years! Make sure you play with your nearest and dearest... the ones who won't mind barreling over you to get an answer. I can't see this ever getting stale.

Mystify is one of those rare games out there which allows all players to participate in every round. There is no waiting for your turn. Everyone races to find the answer and the first one to figure out the scramble wins the round. The more rounds you win - the better chance of winning the game! The different category scrambles keep us constantly guessing. And with so many scrambles this game can be played time and time agian. We love this game and recommend it for all game lovers!
