In this study, an interdisciplinary approach is undertaken to analyze the IMLS (Inverse Mathesso with Lowest Sum) variant of the Mathesso board game, fusing principles from mathematics and cognitive psychology. Retaining the token system of the original, the IMLS introduces distinct cognitive and psychological benefits. Enhanced activation of reverse synaesthesia, underpinned by cognitive psychology research, contributes to the systematic augmentation of memory retention capabilities. Additionally, the IMLS stimulates anticipatory abilities across multi-faceted logical layers, including contradictory ones. The game's 'inverse complexity', observed as players advance, emphasizes the strategic objective of achieving the lowest token sum, diverging from the original Mathesso's approach. This shift fosters unconventional extensions in logical reasoning. The IMLS not only amplifies mathematical intuition but, supported by psychological study, showcases implications for real-world logical applications and cognitive processing patterns. A key feature of the IMLS setup is the initial exposure of the tokens' colored sides, setting a primary probability distribution for token pairs at 50/50, dynamically adjusting as gameplay evolves.
