About

MYnd Kraft is the programming version of UNO, Scrabble and Poker all mashed together in one quirky card game! It’s a dynamic game for the young, the old and every MYnd in between to use their super MYnd powers! 

Mynd Kraft is super simple to understand, easy to play and what’s really cool is that there are 7 MYnd blowing games that could be played with 1 card deck. Some of the games are suited for ages 7+ while the other more strategic games are suitable for ages 11+. There’s even a game that’s played in teams. With 7 games, there truly is a game for every MYnd out there! 

And if you’re up for the challenge, we encourage every MYnd out there to exercise their creative MYnd powers to design the next MYnd Kraft game using a deck of Mynd Kraft cards and we will name the game after you.

So if you’re into using your super MYnd powers in a fun card game or even up for the challenge of creating the next MYnd Kraft game, then MYnd Kraft is just the game for you!

How MYnd Kraft works...

So there are two types of cards in the deck – Action Cards and Number Cards.


Action Cards present problems, based on programming concepts, which need to be solved using the Number Cards. The symbols and values on Action Cards dictate the type of Number Cards (i.e. value and colour) that could be played to solve the Action Cards.  

Players score points for solving Action Cards and the player with the highest number of points wins the game. The score value of each card is indicated by the number of stars on the top right-hand corner / bottom left-hand corner of the card.

About the MYnd Kraft games...

There are 7 MYnd blowing games packed into 1 MYnd Kraft card deck. Check them out below and click on each game to view the instructions for the game. 


The educational side of the game…  

In addition to being an awesome card game, MYnd Kraft is also a great tool to help introduce and teach the basic principles of programming in a fun, exciting and interactive way. The game encourages the development of logical, strategic and critical thinking and problem solving skills. 

MYnd Kraft is a great unplugged STEM tool!  

The programming concepts introduced in the game are:

When using the game to introduce and teach the basics of programming, please use the Guide to Programming Concepts Introduced in the Game as an aid.

Also, just in case you're interested in how the game evolved...

…a long, long time ago even before the game was called MYnd Kraft. The first set of cards that I created was hand drawn on pieces of paper.

Version 1: Hand drawn on pieces of paper
Version 1: Hand drawn on pieces of paper

Version 1 was then revised and Version 2 was created. These cards were printed at home on business card sized cardboard and were used to test the game with a wide audience.

Version 2: Printed on business card sized cardboard
Version 2: Printed on business card sized cardboard

Version 2 went through multiple rounds of revision based on the feedback received. And after many exciting months of testing the game, revising the cards, game play and rules, designing the cards and the instructions manual, this is what MYnd Kraft is today.

Risks and challenges

As a card game, production of MYnd Kraft will be straightforward and simple. The games will then be shipped in bulk to the fulfilment centre and then from there, the game will be on its way to you.

The suppliers chosen have a proven record and are also, reputable and reliable. They’re also capable of scaling up. The only challenge is ensuring that MYnd Kraft makes its way to you in time for Christmas due to possible delays in postage during the festive season.

In the unlikely event that there are any delays, I will be open and honest about them and inform you. One thing I can promise you is that I will use my super MYnd powers to find a solution and I will work around the clock to fix the issue.
