To play you divide into teams of two (although we had 5 players, so one team had 3 players, with 1 player rotating out in each turn - worked great this way).
To start play, a category is read and all players write down as many items in the category as they can, keeping in mind they want to match their partner. But there's a catch. Only one player from each team knows how many exact matches (1 to 4) are needed to win. So, when one of these players thinks their team has enough matches, they grab the plastic brain, and all play stops. If you make the goal, you score a big bonus, but miss it and you score zip. The teams not grabbing the brain score a modest amount, one point for each match, but no bonus.
We had people playing from ages low 20s to low 60s, but teens could also play.
This game is played with equal teams of 2 or more. You can play with up to 4 teams but if you get really ingenious you can play with more than 8 people just adjust to "family rules".
You are competing to see how well you can match your partner on topics. One topic we had was "things a rock star does" You then all madly start writing until someone (anyone playing) either picks up the brain (or in our case yelled it). You then get points for matching items. I had drugs, guitar, microphone and my partner to everyone's surprise (as it was my brother-in-law) matched me on drugs and guitar (he also had amps and drums).
The twist to this game is you get more points on your "roll" if you meet or exceed the secret # you have rolled. This is where the strategy comes in. As only the roller knows the # they have to match and anyone can yell/pick up the brain.
We played this game with a group that had 9-63 year olds. We did find that occasionally we would have to restart a topic as the 9year old didn't know it but overall there weren't many of them :) One of the new favorite family games.
The only "down side" to the game is that it is played best with an even number of people. My wife and i played with my sister and her two kids (5 players) a few days ago and we ended up having one person sit out each game. Each game actually plays pretty fast (about 10 - 15 minutes) so it ended up being okay. You can play with an odd number of people, but i don't find it as enjoyable.
Everyone has a pencil and paper and a shield of secrecy to prevent blatant cheating. Two dice are rolled and a member of each pair looks at them. One tells which category will be used for the round while the other tells how many matches must be obtained for the bonus.
The category is announced and everyone starts scribbling whatever they can think of related to the category. When one of the pair who has seen how many matches are needed think that many exist between their list and that of their partners, they snatch the brain and tell everyone to stop.
Lists are compared and the accusations or accolades ensue.
My favorite example from this game was with the category: fears
My wife put what you might expect:
I put more introspective answers
Not measuring up
She snatched the brain thinking we had it made. Needless to say, all my fears were realized. No points for you.
I hate to tell you what to do because what do I know anyway?
