In this game, players must take randomly drawn symbols and objects and create stories from them, ideally memorable and fun stories that will enable other players to recall the objects around which the stories are centered. Whoever builds the best mnemonics – and listens well to the stories told by others – has the best chance of winning the game.
Note: This is an import game in German. English rules can be round here.
The name "Eselsbrücke" literally means "donkey bridge" – as depicted on the cover of the game Eselsbrücke, for example – but the term also refers to a mnemonic, something used to retain a memory, and that's the goal at the heart of this design from Stefan Dorra and Ralf zur Linde.
