Linq - New Bluffing Game

By March 30, 2005

Follow me on:

Linq, a clever bluffing game available now, was on display by Endless Games at the 2005 American International Toy Fair in New York. At least 4 players are needed to play; two of the players are randomly dealt matching word cards (e.g. "code") and the other players all receive cards marked with question marks. Each player then gives a one-word clue. Everyone is trying to identify the "linq-ed" players, while preventing others from doing the same. Thus, if you have a question mark card, your clue is an attempt to throw off the other players. If you have a Linq card, your clue is an attempt to identify yourself to your partner -- without being so obvious that other players also figure it out.

To promote Linq, Endless Games is handing out free sample packs of Linq cards with 8 paired cards and two bluffing cards. Linq is available now in Barnes and Noble stores, and Wal-Mart will distribute it starting this spring. It sells for about $20.
