MINDJOB is an adult party game that mixes profanity with psychology to f#&k with your mind. It uses a combination of conflicting visual and verbal cues to disrupt automated processes used by brain the for language and color identification. While the neuroscience is complicated, the game is simple and easy to learn. The inclusion of profanity adds to the challenge while dozens of optional NSFW and drinking rules escalate things to another level. In short, when the eyes, brain and mouth don’t agree, things get tricky.
All players start with the same number of cards and are not allowed to look at their hand. Players take turns flipping over their top card and placing it face up in the middle of the table. Depending on the card flipped over, the player that flipped the card must either read the word on the card, identify the color of the card, or shout out a swear word. If they say the correct response, the card stays on the table and the next player takes their turn. If they hesitate or get it incorrect, any other player can call out their mistake. The player that messed up must then pick up all the cards from the table. The first player to get rid of all their cards wins.
