Make My Mind Up
Mind My Mind Up helps us connect with important people in our lives throughout the day.
Number of Players: 2
What Else You Need: A phone each
How To Play:
Between the two of you decide 4 times in the day when you will play the game – ideally at those times when you are not together.
Then at each specified time, one of you sends a text message to each other saying ‘Make My Mind Up’.
Your fellow player then has to guess and note down from a list of 10 mind-states how the other person is feeling at that exact time. You also note down which of the mind-states most closely represents how you are feeling at that same time.
The suggested 10 mind-states are: Bored // Confused // Calm // Angry // Worried // Joyful // Restless // Doubtful // Frustrated // Love …but you can agree whatever set of 10 you wish.
Then at the end of the day you meet the other person and see who scored the most correct hits. You are also encouraged to talk about the context in which you were having that particular mindstate so that you can understand the other player’s experience a little bit more.
Note: this game has yet to be extensively play-tested and as such may need refinement so do please send us your experience & suggestions so we can make them better.
