Our family and friends had a lot of fun playing this game.
Sally Dinovo
A great game for groups of people who want to have meaningful conversation and get to know each other better in a non threatening or non competitive way.

Through seemingly simple and nonthreatening questions, you begin to learn more and more about whomever you play the game with.

I've had the opportunity to play The Ungame many times. I assure you it will bring you many hours of fun with family and friends! As you must sit quietly unless it is YOUR TURN, one is forced to listen attentively to the player whose turn it is. Pay close attention, take notes if you want. (I took LOTS of notes and had so much fun with them!) When it is your turn, if you land on a space which allows you to ask a question or make a remark, you can then use these notes.

While playing this game, you'll learn more about the other players (and possibly yourself) in one hour than you have in a year in most cases. Why? Because you are LISTENING! We often hear part of what someone is saying but we don't always listen completely to what he or she is saying as we should. With this game, people are focused entirely on each other as individuals. It's wonderful!

I highly recommend this game for families, for youth groups, for church groups, for support groups, and for anyone who wants to simply learn more about his or her family and friends. It's a win/win situation. I love to play and am always ready to learn about myself as well as the other players. Have fun with the Ungame!

We bought this game years ago, and although we don't use it a lot, almost every time it has been pulled out we have learned something about the players we didn't know before, or it has opened opportunities for discussions of topics that might not otherwise have been raised in typical conversations.

This game was invented by a woman who lost her voice for quite a while due to a medical problem. It wasn't until that happened that she appreciated her greatly cut back ability to communicate with her family. What started as a family aid turned into a game, but strictly speaking, it isn't a "toy." It's certainly possible to have fun playing it, but it's primarily a way to encourage people into talking about themselves and their feelings. (The reviewer who criticized it for not being a win/loss game is either very sarcastic or totally clueless.)

As one proceeds around the board to the throw of a die, the spaces landed upon determine the action. A player might get to ask a question, make a comment, or go to a space on the board in answer to a question posed on their space.

If going strictly by the rules, no one else is allowed to talk during someone else's turn, which allows for things to be stated or asked without fear of being put down or laughed at. If players are mature enough to make better choices than that, there can be some leeway in how strictly that rule is applied.

I have played this most often with my daughter and one or more of her friends, and it has led into some good discussions. I can see it being used well in a small group of youth at a church or scout meeting.

The version we have has basic questions, a deeper level of issues, and cards that pose questions about one's Christian faith.

This is a really great game. It opens up lines of communication for older kids and their families. The game says it's for kids 5 and up but younger ones I've used it with have found it rather boring and want to quit after a few turns. Once they realize that no one wins and the questions make them think, they want to stop. It has worked well for late elementary school and middle school kids though.

I purchased this product to use from time to time in my therapy practice with teenagers. I have used it several times since receiving it just a few weeks ago, and it has proven to be a great way to open up a dialogue, especially with teens who are reluctant to open up initially. The instructions are flexible to accomodate a variety of purposes, and it is free of judgement. I would recommend this game to anyone who works with (or has) children or adolescents, and think it would be a great game to play at sleepovers and small get togethers with young people as well.

After playing this game only once with three adults and two kids,ages 10 and 12, I realized its value. It is a perfect way to get people interacting with each other because it is noncompetetive. It peaked everyone's interest and you learn so much about people you've spent your life with.The questions and comments feature is invaluable for giving feedack and everyone's pencil got a workout.The kids loved it and didn't want to stop. One of the "Doubting Thomas" competitive adults got into it more than I expected. Great listening going on! Interest was peaked after only one game.

I bought this game at the recommendation of a friend. My family which includes two girls, an eight year old and a four year old, has found this game to be a wonderful tool to encourage open communication, listening skills, and valuable reflection for all. Even my husband found himself listening with interest and pride as our girls were able to reveal their thoughts and communicate effectively. I can see how this game will evolve with the family as the girls get older, allowing my husband and me opportunities to discuss the precious issues that develop and change over time. Additionally, it helps to remind everyone to respectful of the others time and need to express themselves. We found ourselves adding on to the agreed upon time as everyone wanted to play a little longer. I can't wait to play it with other members of my family.
