Hive Mind // Calliope Games

Encouraging no right or wrong answers, players are in a buzzing struggle to prove their worthiness to the all-powerful Queen Bee. Harnessing a hive-mind throughout the players scattered around the table, players will need to answer a series of intriguing questions and attempt to throw out answers which are the same as the other workers out there. Whatever players give the same response, will be rewarded points to tally up by the end of the game.

Calliope Games are working on less of a bee-centric venture, bringing a new edition this year to the tabletop with updated work, tweaked gameplay and a ton of new questions to get stuck into.

Players will be encouraged to think inside the box, coming up with familiar answers that would be used by all. Promoting individuality in answers will reward players with nothing, answering questions such as “Who are the 3 strongest superheroes?”. As being the strongest will be able to anticipate others' answers taking away opinions and hopefully flourishing logic - well, it depends who is around your table.
