Time to think like a cow!

Shoreditch-based Big Potato Games has just released their brand new super-simple party game Herd Mentality. In this game, you have to think like the herd and write down the exact same answers as the other players. If your answer is in the majority, you’ll be rewarded with a cow token. If it’s the odd one out however, you’ll be saddled with the squishy pink cow — and you don’t want that.  

Whether it’s for family games night, drinks with friends or even a long-distanced Zoom session, Herd Mentality is designed to be easy to learn and quick to play.  

The aim of the game is to win eight cow tokens before anyone else. Each round, players will hear a random question, such as “What’s the worst day of the week?”. Everyone must write down an answer; players then reveal their responses one by one. If your answer is part of the majority, you get to collect a cow token from the paddock in the middle and take one step closer to victory.  

However, there’s one cow in the paddock that you won’t want to collect, and that’s the pink cow. If your answer is the odd one out, you’ll have to add him to your herd. Whilst the pink cow is sitting in front of you, it’s impossible for you to win the game – so you better hope someone else collects him before it’s too late!  

Here’s a couple of questions to give you an idea of how it works. Remember, it’s not about writing the most ‘correct’ answer – it’s about picking the most popular one.  

Some of the questions from the game include: 

  • Name a food with a hole in it.  
  • Out of all the players, who is the best dressed today?  
  • What is the best Christmas movie?  

 

Herd Mentality comes in a soft-to-touch cow print box and is available to order now. For more information, please get in touch with Emily Bond at emily@bigpotato.co.uk.
