Coming Soon from Gamewright, Imagine
June 11, 2016 - 4:36pm
The first time I saw transparent plastic cards was in the game Gloom, and I thought it was a nifty mechanic to overlay cards like that, now Gamewright is bringing the mechanism into a party game called Imagine. Originally designed in Japan by Shingo Fujita, Motoyuki Ohki, and Hiromi Oikawa, Imagine has 61 different shapes and illustrations on transparent plastic cards, and it's these cards that will be used throughout the game. How the game works is that the active player will draw a card which will indicate what everyone else has to guess, stuff like movies, animals and nature, objects, myths and legends, and more. Then, without talking, the active player uses the plastic cards to create a picture to get the others to guess the phrase, they have all the cards available and can "animate" them as needed to get your point across. The person who guesses gets a point, and maybe the animator as well but the rules aren't posted yet. The game was on display at the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA) Expo in Denver on June 6th, and will be available to the public for the first time at Gen Con in August so look for ward to it.
