On the Subject of Mind Meld

You're gonna need ESP to solve this one — Explosive-Solving Power.

  • The module has five Zener cards and a button that puts the module into the submission phase.
  • Use the Zener cards to get a category.
  • Click on any card to reveal what each of the four other players picked. Click any card again to reset and generate new cards.
  • Using this information, you can figure out how each player picks their card. Once you do, press the red button in the bottom-right and click the card that nobody else will pick to solve the module (you can press it again to go back).
  • See the Categories section to determine the category. See the Rules section to find the different rules. See the Players section to figure out what order the players pick in.
