When I Dream is the new party board game for 4-10 players, giving you a great experience in under 30 minutes.
In When I Dream, every round a player is having a dream, while the other players take the roles of good and naughty spirits. Each round, the good spirits will try to give the dreamer as many elements of the dream as possible, while the naughty spirits try to confuse him.
At the beginning of a round of When I Dream one player takes the role of the Dreamer and “falls asleep”, wearing a cloth mask. The other players are secretly dealt their role cards determining what kind of spirits they are “good” or “naughty” or if they are just “tricksters” changing sides as the game goes by.
The whole round lasts 120 seconds in which the spirits are drawing “Dream” cards depicting a specific element of the dream, trying to describe them to the dreamer using one word each. The dreamer can guess what the “Dream” is at any time, with the spirits playing the to the good spirits team side if the guess was correct and in the naughty spirits pile if it was not.
At the end of the round the Dreamer and the good spirits get a point for every card in the good spirits pile, when the trickster gets one point for every card in the naughty spirits pile. The tricksters get points according to how well balanced the two teams were at the end of the round, gaining extra points if they managed to balance the two piles.
At the end of the round, the dreamer must use the words he guessed and tell his dream for extra points before he opens his eyes.
