Big Potato Games says that app-based game Mints or Mince is its simplest, stupidest, and most addictive game yet.
Big Potato Games has released its newest game, Mints or Mince – a free app that’s all about guessing if your friends are saying “Mints” or, you guessed it, “Mince.”
Players first need to round up two or more friends. One player, the guesser, holds the phone to their forehead and, on clicking start, a photo will appear showing beefy mince or minty mints. Another player says what they see, out loud, once. The guesser has to guess which one they said. Get it right and they tilt the phone forward and go again. Get it wrong and it’s game over, and the guesser must pass the phone to a new challenger. The aim of the game is to get the most correct answers in a row.
The game even has a Vegan Mode. If players flick the Vegan toggle, all the beef mince turns to Quorn.
Laura Martin, head of Creative Services, explained the origin of the game: “A great thing about Big Potato is that ideas for new games can come from anyone in the office. In this case, it was from me. I used to play a version of Mints or Mince with my mates down the pub. When I told the others about it, they thought I was mad but nevertheless said “let’s make it!” And here it is, with bells on.”
The game is totally free, and there’s also an option to unlock more levels such as Prints or Prince, Mousse or Moose, and Hose or Hoes. All users need to do is sign up to The Potato Club (which is also free).
