Mind Thrust has only a single-player mode.

There are two ways of winning the game: by removal of all opposing playing pieces, or by being the first to create a continuous chain of own pieces across the width of the board.

Play consists of alternate turns during which one may add a piece or attack abutting opposing pieces. The opponent may defend against an attack. The contest arises from correctly choosing which opposing pieces to attack or which of your pieces to defend. A successful defense is as important as a successful attack but is made more difficult by rules which make the allowable points of defense fewer than the available points of attack.

At the start of the game, the player may choose the side of the board and whether to begin first or let the computer do so. It is possible to switch sides at any point in a game and as many times as wished. The rules call it 'Legalized Cheating'.
