Zendo is an inductive logic game in which players compete to be the first to figure out a secret rule chosen by a neutral moderator. Players take turns building new structures of beautiful crystalline pieces, each of which will be marked by the moderator as to whether they follow the rule or not. By observing the patterns of which structures follow the rule or not, and testing their guesses, players narrow down the possibilities until someone guesses the rule exactly!
Easy to adapt for cooperative play, it's also a remarkably good model of the scientific method!
