Big Potato Games are one of the best publishers for unique party games. Whether it is rhyming your way through puzzles in Obama Llama, wearing the tin foil hat of physic blocking in Head Hackers, or following the cow crowd in Herd Mentality, they always have a trick up their sleeves.
Colourbrain aims to be the quiz for those who aren’t good at quizzes. It does this by handing you all the answer cards in the form of 11 colour cards. Helpfully these are coloured and written on so that there is no debate about what colour a card is.
A question card will be drawn and it’s your job to answer with the relevant colour cards. For example you might be asked about the colours of the power rangers and you’d answer with the correct cards. You’d also hope that some of the other players get it wrong because you score a point for each other player that gets the answer wrong!
Each player of team also gets a power card to use, when they are losing to severely limit the leading teams options and give them a chance to catch up. Because the questions are greatly varied across different themes and categories every player feels involved and has a good chance to compete.
Colourbrain can be played individually or in teams, and is perfect for those large family gatherings. It has also now seen a few themed sets released including the surprisingly challenging Disney edition! Big Potato have done it again – this one is a keeper.
