A review copy of Geistesblitz was kindly provided by the publishers Zoch GmbH.
As the active player if you grab or call out the correct object you retain the deck of cards and turn over the next card. If not then the rules say you pass the deck to the person who was correct, in our games we simplified this so that the deck was always passed to the next person in a clockwise direction. The winner being the player who has the most cards when the deck is exhausted.
This is a game clearly targeted at families and in particular children. Our experience is that they will love it and have a lot of fun playing it but that it will also help to develop skills around colour and shape recognition, plus speed of reaction and analysis skills.
However as with so many of the Zoch games it is really good fun and will also work for:
· Gamers as a light filler when time is short at the beginning / end of a games evening.
· Social Gamers who will I believe really enjoy this simple yet testing game.
· Non gamers who are up for a fun game that will be boisterous and have lots of interplay between the players as they frequently grab the wrong object.
A wooden ghost and happy confusion
