Part word game, part bluffing game, part strategy game, LINQ is a team game where you don't know who your partner is!
In every round of play, two players will have cards with the same word on it, while the other players will have bluffing cards.
The object of the game is to find out which two players have the same card, or LINQ, by listening to the clue words that all the players give. For example, if the LINQ word is "blue", a player holding that card might say "ocean". A player who is bluffing might follow by saying "shell". It's not yet clear who has the LINQ, until the other player can describe blue in a different context. After Round One has been completed, players can guess who they think has the LINQ, or pass on guessing until after Round Two. When the LINQ is revealed, players earn 2 points for correctly guessing after Round One, or 1 point for correctly guessing after Round Two. The first player to score 10 points, wins.
It's a unique game where you play as an individual but must rely on your partner - if only you know who that is!
