Wavelength is a social guessing game where two teams compete. Teams take turns rotating a dial to where they think a hidden bullseye is located on a spectrum. One of the players on your team — the Psychic — knows exactly where the bullseye is, and draws a card with a pair of binaries on it (such as: Job - Career, Rough - Smooth, Fantasy - Sci-Fi, Sad Song - Happy Song, etc). The Psychic must then provide a clue that is *conceptually* where the bullseye is located between those two binaries. For example, if the card this round is HOT-COLD and the bullseye is slightly to the "cold" side of the centre, the Psychic needs to give a clue somewhere in that region. Perhaps "salad"? After the Psychic gives their clue, their team discusses where they think the bullseye is located and turns the dial to that location. The closer to the center of the bullseye the team guess, the more points they score!

The chart indicating Wavelength requires 2-12 plays and recommends a party of 6 or 8, plays in 30- 45 minutes, features party game themes, and offers betting, bluffing, race, targeted clues, team based game mechanics.
