VIDEO REVIEW: Mindflex mind-control boardgame

“Do or do not, there is no try.”

The immortal words of green, drawf Jedi Master Yoda of the Star Wars films, said to the skeptical Luke Skywalker when he totalled his X-Wing in a swamp. We all know how his lack of faith turned out; with a destroyer of planets lobbing off his arm. Not pretty.

Still, we digress. Well, sort of. just like Yoda raised the X-Wing out of the mud in Empire Strikes Back, you too can test your Force powers with Mindflex, a mind-control boardgame from Mattel that challenges you with floating a levitating ball around an obstacle course using thought power alone.

Available from all good toy shops (and some rubbish ones too) for around £80, check out Gerald putting the game through its paces in the video above. It’s a bit mad, and it genuinely works too.
