Not the Uno game. The Ungame!
Did anyone have the Ungame growing up? It’s the coolest game ever invented. Ever. I’m not sure if I ever actually played, but I was always drawn to the concept of an ungame… like it was Dark Matter or a Black Hole –something that existed, but didn’t. Not a game…but an ungame. Kinda like the Endgame, but not.
Everytime I took it out of the box, however, it didn’t magically become awesome. It was actually pretty lame. Just how lame was it? Here ya go:
Players progress along the playing board as they answer questions such as "What are the four most important things in your life," and "What do you think life will be like in 100 years?" This non-competitive game can be a great ice-breaker or a serious exchange of thoughts, feelings and ideas. As the best selling Christian family communication game in history, the Ungame® continues to encourage sharing and understanding in a "safe" atmosphere.Not a safe environment… No, a “safe” environment. With "quotes." If that doesn’t scare little Christian boys...
But how cool is that? What better way to hang out with your foolks and play a game where you share your feelings? There is none! Especially since you can’t win or lose!
Here’s a testimonial:
Mike and I have been happily married nearly 9 years now and still play fairly often. It is especially good when we realize we are not "connecting" like we usually do.
You can’t “connect” eh? Heheheh.
Looking for new positions to "connect?" Try these variations:
8. Play the Ungame as though you are a group of 9 year-olds (or teens, or 90 year-olds).
16. Leave the board game on a coffee table all the time, letting family members know they can suggest playing every time there's something that needs to be shared.
26. Video tape a group playing the Ungame and view it a year later.
