Description

Percepts was shipped free of charge to owners of the Odyssey console who sent back their registration cards to Magnavox.

The game comes with new screen overlays, 30 play cards (15 green + 15 purple), and an instruction sheet. It uses game card #2 from the original console and can be played by either Game of Pattern or Game of Symbol rules.

Game of Patterns
In the Game of Patterns, the 15 green cards are laid face-down in a 5x3 grid. Then, one of the 15 purple cards is revealed. Both players now try to memorize the pattern printed on it, find the card in the 5x3 grid that shows the same pattern, note its position in the grid, and race their player dots to the appropriate position on the screen with their controllers. The player who gets there first wins the green card. The game continues until all green cards are won.

Game of Symbols
The Game of Symbols has very similar rules, but now players have to match the little pictures printed above the patterns. The 15 green cards are now laid face-up, while the 15 green purple cards are laid face down between the player, where one of the cards then revealed to expose the symbol. To make the game harder, the positions of the green cards in the grid have to be memorized, as all the green cards have to be turned over after an initial memorization period. The player that correctly guess the position that corresponds with the symbol wins the green card. The game continues until all green cards are won.
