I am a therapist and use this game with kids and their families to facilitate positive communication. It is a great tool and I use it often. I highly recommend it!

I went back and forth on my decision to purchase the Ungame for a long time. I kept coming back to and finally decided that it was worth a try. I have 2 children that are adopted and was looking to work on communicating and getting to know each other better. They loved this game. So many valuable lessons in one little box: taking turns, remaining quiet while another person is speaking, learning to listen, expressing yourself clearly... I highly recomend this "game" to parents looking to strengthen their bond with their children.

So I was a bit skeptical when I ordered this for our school social work office this summer. "Therapy games" are usually pretty out of touch, and if -I- think it's lame, my kids will usually think it's lame, too.

With the Ungame, though, I was pretty surprised that even the most mature questions ("talk about credit cards") led to some pretty great conversations with kids 4th grade and up. Kids seem to dig taking turns and talking about themselves, and usually get engaged to the point that they're asking the other students about their stories.

The cards are flimsy, as cards often are, and don't stand up well to most of our kids, who like to hold them and snap them while they talk. The box says you could play this game with kids down to 5, and maybe you could, but I would suggest going through the decks and picking out cards that might be a little more suitable for the younger crowd.

All in all, it's a solid addition to our bookcase of games and tools, and I'd recommend it to anyone who works with kids one-on-one or in groups.

I use this as an ice breaker with my youth clients or to get them talking once they clam up about an issue. It can be fun because they ask questions of me also. They are very durable also and rarely bend or tear as they are tossed about in my car, bag, office etc...

I would not put the Ungame into the category as a toy but I can see where Amazon feels that it can fall into that category. As a counselor I use the Ungame for kids or teens during their first session to open them up and get to know them. I have never had a client refuse to answer any of the questions or not have fun playing it. I use the Ungame for families & the Ungame for couples to promote communication. I can say that I have used the questions with my own children when I first bought them and they had fun talking about the subjects and answering the questions. Communication is a key to any relationship and the Ungame promotes communications - I don't know that there is much more I could say.

I have the board game and I bought the cards to supplement what I already have. My children enjoy this game and I find that it is educational in that it teaches active listening, patience and understanding. No need for a game with electronics and noise...have your kids get in touch with their feelings and their own imaginations. You'd be surprised at the result.

I have been using this regularly since it arrived a few weeks ago. I am a school based counselor and Deck 1-- the get to know you deck has been a great conversation starter. It is really getting my clients thinking and talking. I work mostly with children ages 10 to 12. I have not yet used Deck 2. Deck 1 is described as an "ice-breaker" deck and I am still working on getting through that one. I highly recommend this product for family or professional use!

These conversation starters are great for older kids, adults and families. The format is a little too dry to be appealing to kids- so as long as you're comfortable jazzing it up with your own energy, these are a great tool!

My son's doctor recommened this game to help encourage my 5 year old son to talk more and to learn about emotions and other people's feelings. This game gets him talking and thinking! This game is good to have in the car to start a conversation. My son and his 7 year old sister love taking turns to play!

This is a great game that breaks the ice. Stack #1 has benign questions that are not so intrusive and threatening while Stack #2 has more challenging and thoughtful questions relating to issues that may be controversial.
