Where can you get Train of Thought?

Well it’s out there now!  Train of Thought is available online and in stores.  Yeah but which stores?  Well, it’s hard to know all the stores that are carrying it, but they’ll mostly be actual game stores.  Don’t go looking in Toys R’ Us or Walmart quite yet!

If your local game store doesn’t have it – well, tell them to order some in! 🙂  Hopefully if more and more people are asking for it, then they’ll have to bring it in to keep up with the immense demand.

I’ve listed a few sites below of online stores that are carrying it if you want to buy online.  Also – Train of Thought is back on the Hotness List on boardgamegeek.com!  When people play any game, they can log into their profile and record that they’ve played it.  To get on the Hotness I believe a game has been played by the most people.  So Train of Thought is currently the 22nd most played game in the world (according to the users of bgg.com!).

If you have played the game, please give it a rating on bgg.com!  Here are some pictures of Train of Thought on store shelves:

First official review of Train of Thought is in!

Train of Thought box artWe’ve heard a lot of great things from the community about Train of Thought (like the reviews posted on Train of Thought’s Facebook page), but here is our first official review – and it’s a good one! Father Geek has been reviewing games on boardgamegeek.com for years and he has written up a great review of the game here.

Of note, I really liked this part:

“This game does a lot of things right. First, it provides for a high level of player interaction. I love games where I get to actually play with the other people. Second, it is fast paced. There is no down time and a single game doesn’t last very long or feel drawn out. Third, this game is challenging and requires all the players to use their active listening, communication, and logical thinking skills. This makes the game very challenging and rewarding. Fourth, and finally, the game’s mechanics and flow are easy to understand and to teach. This makes it very easy for me to introduce the game to veteran gamers and new players, alike.”

Thanks for the review Father Geek! If anyone else has reviewed Train of Thought – please make sure to let us know and we’ll link to it!
