Brainwaves is a series of games developed by game designers and neuroscientists where players challenge their episodic memory, that is, their memory of recent personal events.
In The Astute Goose, players will need to identify a burglar hiding in a crowd. What did the thief look like? What color are their clothes? And what animal accomplices did they have with them? Number cards from 1-6 are placed on the table, with a suspect card next to each number. Players will look at these cards, then turn them face down. On a turn, a player will roll the two dice: one showing a number, the other a characteristic of a burglar card. If the player is able to identify the correct item on the correct burglar card, they claim that card as a reward, then put a new card in its place. Whoever collects the most cards wins the game.
