The Lie Detector Game
This game includes a working lie-detector with voice analysis. Players in the hot seat are asked questions with the goal to catch them in a lie. Being honest, or outsmarting the detector, wins the game. Lights and sound reveal the truth.
Oh, and just in case this game makes anyone nervous, it comes with 126 questions if the blank questions are too risky.
The Awkward Storyteller
Creative thinking is how you’ll win this game. With a brief story plot, players ask the Storyteller questions that begin to build the story. But it’s not all completely random–the Storyteller must create a story using unique prompts. It’s group and shy-folk friendly game where originality and plot twists are exactly what is needed to win.
I Should Have Known That!
Unlike ridiculously hard trivia games that intimidate most of us, this trivia game is filled with everyday questions like: What is the character limit for Tweets on Twitter? How long did Sleeping Beauty actually sleep? But you’re not rewarded in this game for answering questions correctly–instead you lose points for incorrect answers that you probably should have known. If we can have teams, put an Enneagram 5 on ours.
Featured on our Enneagram 6 Gift List, this game is trying to kill you. And our Enneagram 6’s are the most likely to not die.
Creativity, imagination, and problem solving–no we’re not explaining a typical Enneagram 7, but the game Concept. Play cooperatively or semi-cooperatively to share clues similar to Charades, but with images on the game board. Don’t worry, the points are far less important than having a great time, which is a Enneagram 7’s motto.
Control a group of inhabitants on the island of Atlantis, which is in the process of sinking in the water. You need to get your people from the central island, made up of hexagonal tiles, over to the safe islands in the corners of the board. You must protect and defend–the very best parts of an Enneagram 8.
