In Mind Maze players will be told a story and must figure out why and how the story happened by asking questions that can be answered with "Yes" or "No". The person telling the story can also choose to answer with “Not Important” if players start getting too far off track.
Mind Maze allows players to test their skills of deduction and investigation, and to get to the bottom of the mystery with as few questions as possible. Players take turns asking questions, and lose a point for every question they ask. Points can be gained by asking specific key questions which also help players to figure out the true version of the story. This encourages players to think carefully about the questions they ask and to work together.
