Setup for Think ‘n Sync The Great Minds Think Alike Game

Playing Think ‘n Sync The Great Minds Think Alike Game

The role of reader rotates between the players each turn. The next two players to the left of the reader become the “syncers”.

The reader draws a category card and grabs the eight scoring tokens.

Scoring Points

The reader reads the card’s main category from the top of the card. They will then read the first sub-category.

Think 'n Sync Card
After the reader draws this card they will tell the syncers that the card’s category is Movie Animals. They will then say that the first sub-category is “A movie pig”.

The reader slowly counts down “3…2…1…”. On one both syncers say the first thing that comes to their mind. If both syncers say the same word, they will each receive one scoring token. If they say different things, the players do not receive a scoring token.

Correct Answer in Think 'n Sync
For the first sub-category both syncers say “Babe”. As they both gave the same answer, both syncers will receive a scoring token.

The reader then reads the next sub-category to the same two syncers. This continues until all four sub-categories have been read from the card.

The players count up how many scoring tokens they received. Each player earns one point per token.

Scoring
During this turn each syncer received two scoring tokens. Both syncers will score two points for the round.

Setup for Next Turn

Play then passes to the next turn. The player to the left of the reader becomes the next reader. The next two players to the left will become the new syncers. The next turn is played in the same way as the previous turn.

Once all of the players have been the reader once, players may switch places so they can play with different players.

End of Game

The game ends once all of the players have been the reader twice. The player with the highest score wins the game.
