Brainstorm Comics and Gaming has made a concerted effort to grow and strengthen our board game selection, bringing our total number of games in stock to 600+. Our goal is to have 750 available for purchase each and every week on our shelves.
With such an overwhelming selection available, we know that it can be intimidating and/or difficult to find the right kind of game for you and your friends. Each week we will be spotlighting different games that you may be less familiar with. Be sure to click the link at the bottom of this post to have a full walk-through of the game.
This week’s selection is the game we will be demonstrating this Thursday…..
WHEN I DREAM
Setting: In this game, one player is dreaming while they are asleep. To simulate this, they are blindfolded while the remaining players are giving clues as to what cards are making up their dreams.
Game play: This game is in the same vein as Dixit, but with some added mechanics. Everyone receives a card with a different role (each player is one of the three–Fairy, Sandman or Boogeyman). Each role is trying to accomplish a different goal. The fairy will always tell the truth and will score points based on how many cards the dreaming player guesses correctly. The Boogeyman is trying to mislead the dreamer into guessing incorrectly and scores accordingly. Lastly, the Sandman is trying to ensure there is an even amount of cards guessed correctly and incorrectly.
Each round lasts 2 minutes. At the end of this round, the dreamer must construct a story containing each of the things they guessed.
Each card is double sided and has two words printed on each face. Since one word is covered on the card, this ensures that there is a lot of replayability to the game. Basically, each card provides four options.
The cards are beautiful, on the same level as both Dixit and Mysterium, with several different artists contributing to the pieces.
This game is excellent for parties and people who may not be hardcore gamers. The artwork and game pieces will definitely appeal to those who are into aesthetics.
