Product Description

Product Description

Train of Thought is a party word game. Players take turns trying to get opponents to guess a particular word, giving only a 3 word clue - and one of those words must be from a prior answer! For each clue given, each player may make 1 guess. If none are correct, the clue-giver creates another clue, using one of the guesses and up to 2 other words. When the word is correctly guessed, the guessing player and the clue giver each get one point, and the clue giver draws a new card and continues making clues. Get as many as you can in 2 minutes! Train of Thought can be played as a partnership or team game as well - guess as many words as you can in 2 minutes, see if the other team can beat that! Train of Thought really makes you think differently than other games in the genre. An excellent party game! All Aboard! This party game challenges you to stay on track. Score points by giving clues and making guesses as you and your friends ride the Train of Thought!

Customer Reviews

At one time, we felt as if we were speaking like cavemen.
Joe Peterson
The best part of the game is that people can jump in and out of the game without disturbing the game in progress.
Mordecai Montague
This game is of the same type as Taboo, and I like Taboo a lot.

I really think Train of Thought is going to give existing party games a run for their money.

* It takes less than 5 minutes to learn.
* If you can read, you can play it.
* It's a ton of fun.
* Everybody is playing all the time. No waiting for the other people or team to do their turn. Everyone is always in the game, all the time.
* No special skills involved. Obscure trivia? Acting? Drawing? Whistling? Spelling? Not here. Even the vocabulary requirements are not too bad. We've played with people whose primary language is not English, and at worst they just draw a new card if they don't know a word, and they do pretty well with the guessing.
* The cards never get "old." Unlike trivia games and other guessing games (or especially CD or DVD-based games), where a repeat card can give an experienced player an instant advantage, the way clues are built in this game mean that target words are fresh every time.
* It's cheap and portable -- no giant board, fancy pawns, CDs, DVDs, props, etc. The game consists of a stack of cards, a die, and a timer, and you're good to go. You can take it anywhere (work, family trips, camping).
* It's fast! The official "twice around the table" approach only takes about 20 minutes once people know what they're doing. But if you wanted to quit after each person had had a turn, no problem. Or if you want to quit sooner than that and don't care that not everyone had a turn at being the leader, just count up cards won, and you're done. I can't believe I ever sat through 3-hour games of Pictionary.

How does it work? One player (the "conductor") draws one card as a starting card, and rolls the die to see which of the 6 words to use (e.g. "Rabbit"). Then draws another card as the secret target card (e.g. "Taxi").

I had the opportunity to play Train Of Thought a few times at different conventions. I'm not normally a fan of party games or word games. However, this was easy to learn and made it fun to test your skills of coming up with word clues and answering word clues. I played with people that I didn't really know and I imagine that playing with people you know would be even better. The best part of the game is that people can jump in and out of the game without disturbing the game in progress. This is perfect for hosting a party or game night where people are not all arriving at the same time. It also works well as a game between games when not everyone is finishing up at the same time.

I really enjoy this game! Normally, I am not a fan of word games, so I was very skeptical to try it at first. Well, I'm glad I did! 'Train of Thought' is a great party game, easy to learn, and pass a great time with friends! Other reviewers covered pretty much everything. Highly recommended this game!

This game is of the same type as Taboo, and I like Taboo a lot. I genuinely i Train of Thought is even better than Taboo, because it really makes you think out-of-the-box. A lot of fun for casual players as well as cpetetive or hardcore gamers!

I am associated with the publisher, so my opinion may sound biased - but if it weren't true, I wouldn't have suggested that Tasty Minstrel publish it, would I have? If you like word games, do yourself a favor and give Train of Thought a try!

We had great family fun with this game. We all enjoyed bouncing words around trying to get the proper word "said" by participants. The thought processes to get where we needed to be were hilarious. Highly recommended.

Laugh riot! At one time, we felt as if we were speaking like cavemen. The greatest moment was these clues: "Horse but smaller" "PONY!" "Pony but smaller" "CHILD?" "No not child". We had to stop the timer because we lost it. What a great idea for a game and really just a great amount of fun. We loved it.
