Board game review & gameplay of: Mind Space

  • 7.5/10
  • 11+
  • 1-5 players

In Mindspace, players try to fill up their brain with desires, necessities and emotions! They do so by fitting various tetrislike shapes on a 9*9 grid.

A game consists of 12 round, the end is indicated with an empty deck of cards. Each round, dice are rolled and placed in their ‘spot’ above a shapecard. Each player then picks a shape and its accompanying colour and places it anywhere on their player board (first one is freely placed, after this they must touch!).

All five colours score different:

💜Purple - hobbies: 2P for each space touching an orange space

🧡Orange - friendships: XP equal to the leftmost number thats not crossed off

🩷Pink - romance: each pink shape gets points for other equal shapes

💙Blue - self improvement: minus points equal to the leftmost square not crossed off

💚Green - finances: no points, bit coins with which you can buy shapes!

Players also score points for three end of round goals and if they fill up each space of a section.

After 12 rounds, players calculate scores, highest score wins!


I really enjoy this little game. The component quality is very nice and I really like the theme (even though the theme doesn’t really shine).

👍 Gameplay is fun and rules are simple

👍 Artwork looks really hice and component quality is solid

👍 Plays up to 5 players

👍 The small box fits right into your backpack!

➖ The game is not that innovative

➖Personally I don’t really enjoy beat your own highscore solomodes


The solomode is beat your own high score, not my favourite to solo!
