Great Minds is a collaborative and competitive game which requires all players to think alike. Each round of the game is a multiple-choice question. The question could be a word, a phrase, or a sentence. At least 4 options which best describe the given question are given. For example:
Option A: Newton
Option B: Pineapple
Option C: iPhone
Option D: Adam
Each player chooses an option which could be the most popular among the other players or makes the most sense to himself or herself. There is no right or wrong answer. The selected options are revealed after all players have made their choice. The point system is based on the selected game mode, Competitive or Collaborative.
The essence of Great Minds is not about scoring. It is about having fun discussing the reason of different choices after each round.
