Recommended for ages 12+ 2 to 12 players 30-60 minutes
Wavelength is a party game where two teams compete to read each other’s minds. It’s a thrilling experience of TALKING and THINKING and HIGH FIVING that anyone can play—but it also has some of that deep word game sorcery, where your decisions feel tense, strategic, meaningful. Each round, one player has to guide their teammates to guess where a hidden target is located. But they can only give a clue on the spectrum between two concepts, like “Hot - Cold” or “Fantasy – Sci-Fi.” And the closer to the target’s center, the more their team scores!
Wavelength is a fantastic social-guessing game, perfect for those who love wordplay such as Codenames and Hues and Cues. The box itself has stunning artwork and is so eye-catching on my game shelf. And I love the cool, retro look to the device included. The objective of the game is to guess what your team leader is thinking by getting on the same frequency and scoring the most points. It’s an easy game to learn for ages 12 and up with no limit to the number of players. There’s something to be said about a game that gets people talking and interacting with one another. Wavelength provides insights into how other players see the world. Even if you’re not too familiar with your teammates, you’ll be talking, debating, and high fiving in no time.
