This is a new game in the Similo series. In Similo players work together to figure out the right mythical character out of 12 cards.

One player is the clue giver. They take a look at one card from a shuffled deck (this is the wanted character), which will be placed in front of them together with 11 other cards from the deck. 

Then the clue giver takes a hand of 5 cards and shows one card per turn. straight if the shown card is similar to the wanted charactercard and tilted if its not unlike the charactercard. All other players have to eliminate 1 or more cards per turn until they guess the right one, in which case all players win, or when the wanted characterd is eliminated, in which case the players lose the game.


I had fun playing this little game. I was quite impressed by the simplicity and accessibility of this one!

👍 The gameplay is easy, quick to learn and quick to play. A real fun one for after diner parties!

👍 I really like the small flavour text on the cards explaining the mythological characters, this is not in all Similo games in my remembrance.

👍 If you like social deduction games, this one is recomended!


A copy of this game was provided to me by 999 Games for the purpose of writing this review. My opinion however remains my own.
