What is Think-ets? It’s the world’s first little game in a pouch containing tiny treasures from all over the world. The assortment of 15 collectible miniature trinkets in the pouch is used to create games and will provide hours of entertainment through storytelling and creative fun. This is a very convenient, portable game ideal to play at home, or to take along to restaurants, waiting rooms, the playground, in the car, on camping trips, or wherever you go! Looking for a ‘brainy’ game? Think-ets will definitely exercise your brain, improve your focus and thinking skills, and inspire creative imagination.
No two games are alike in each Think-ets pouch. That’s why kids will have loads of excitement and fun collecting them, stacking them, and even trading them. My little boys are too young to play this game but I’m actually looking forward to try this with my older nieces and nephews on our upcoming trip (can’t wait!).
If you’re wondering how to play Think-ets, here’s how it works:
Each of the games designed around Think-ets is ideal for two or more people, ages 8-108+, yet younger kids like them too. (But of course, we all know that itty-bitty things are not safe for tiny tots, so make sure these tiny trinkets are out of their reach!)
And here are some suggested Think-ets games:
“What’s Your Story?”
First, lay out five or more trinkets. Then choose one and start a story using the trinket as the subject. Ask the other player(s) to do the same until you and the players have woven an entire story. One other tidbit you should know: Think-ets encourage silliness!
Other variations on “What’s Your Story?” may be:
1: Using the trinkets for subject matter, tell the story “popcorn” style. This is where storytellers blurt out pieces of the story as they imagine it.
2: Instead of laying out the trinkets, leave them in the bag. Take turns pulling out one trinket at a time, and tell the story in that order.
So if you have older kids and you need fun games to play or in need of a quick little activity to do with your whole family, try Think-ets! You’ll never go bored with this game.
