Product Description

How would you answer the following question?

Fact or Fiction: Good friends think alike.

If you said "Fact," you're going to love the What Were You Thinking? game. Have you and a friend ever blurted out the same answer to a question at the same time? How many times have you finished a friend's sentence because you just knew what he or she was going to say?

The What Were You Thinking? party game challenges you to think just like everyone else, not to remember obscure facts. You don't have to be a great artist or a method actor. During each round, players secretly write down their answers to a given question. The best answer won't necessarily be the one you would find in an encyclopedia. Instead, it's whatever most players say is right!

Will you be able to think like the group? Or will your sense of individuality shine through and single you out? Either way, someone will inevitably ask, "What were you thinking?"

This is the best Group game made!
April 17, 2004

My co-workers play this game almost everyday at lunch and it has been almost 7 months now! It hasn't gotten old, but it is still funny and you will get so many laughs-until your belly aches with some the answers your friends come up with. It is a great 'ice-breaker' game when you really don't know the people in your group,too. It is very sad that they don't make this game anymore for other people to enjoy. I got this game in 1998 when it first came out & havn't seen it since then.

It was a great family game!

My friends and family came over for a party and we took out What Were You Thinking. We played it for 3 hours straight! It never got boring and was fun to see others answers to the fun and interesting questions. A couple days later I had some friends over and we played and had a fabulous time! I would recomend this game to anyone.

Best Darn Game I've played in a long time!

-good friends

-plenty of laughs

-What Were You Thinking!

This is one of the best games I have ever bought. My friends and I play this game every time we get together, and it never gets old.

great game! rave review!

We found this game in a house we rented for the Holidays...we must have played it for at least 20 hours in 4 days. The rules are simple. We learned a lot about each other in a very un-icebreaker kind of way. It is my new favorite game.

We mostly played with 5 players which was perfect. Increasing the players to 9 changed the game and slowed it down but it was still really entertaining.

This game would be really easy to take on could just take the box of cards.

One of the BEST party games ever!

I purchased this game several years ago. I plan social events for groups and every group that has played this game has fallen in love with it. It doesn't matter if the participants know each other well, ages and genders don't matter and education levels get stripped away. When my friends and I get together it's the only game we play (has been for 2 yrs now!). I've even 'modified' it to make a 'travel version' for my vacations w/ family & friends. I wish I could find it to buy again. I know I'll need to replace this one soon after wearing it out!

Elegant, simple, interesting party game
September 16, 1999

Lots of fun for a range of intense, casual, and minimal gamers.

Cards ask questions for which people secretly list responses. Example: Name 5 presidents. (Don't worry, there are other types of questions.) Points are scored by matches with other people. The least points scored for a question gets a penalty card. The game is played until a certain number of penalty points is reached, so often only one person loses.

You can obviously play this without buying the game (as we did several times), but hey, the game components are kind of fun and the game asks some surprising questions you wouldn't have come up with yourself.
