Smart Thinking

The Thinker Game

What It Is: A clever, educational spin on 20 questions. One person assumes the role of an infamous influencer from the realms of art, literature, science and beyond. From Coco Chanel to Plato to Leonardo da Vinci and many others, your opponents job is to ask you yes / no questions to try and figure out who you are. And if they can’t guess? Well they’re likely to learn some mighty interesting facts about some mighty interesting people along the way.

Who It’s For: Your child’s teacher, to get the class going next year. Your graduating niece or nephew, so they can talk the college talk next year. Your nerdy spouse, so you can have a battle of wits together.

What It Costs: $23

Where It’s At: I spotted it at Bibelot & Token, a Canadian site.

    We like board games but the ones that a limited number of questions or identities such as this one soon become too repetitive to keep them interesting.
