CONVERSATIONAL UNO - AMERICA'S LEADING TALKING GAME BASED ON A CARD GAME RELATED TO CRAZY EIGHTS
As you may know, in the card game Uno someone puts a card (with a color and a number) on a discard pile and the next person must put down a card that matches the previous card somehow...It could have the same number but a different color or the same color but a different number.
If you've never played Conversational Uno, here's how it's done. One person tells a story. Say someone tells a story such as "I went to Marine World/Africa USA on a school field trip and while riding an elephant, the creature reached up with its trunk and stole the Oakland A's cap that was on my head."
The next person clockwise in a circle then tells a story that matches some part of the previous story. It could be a story about a school field trip or an elephant or the A's or a baseball cap or a theft.
The card game Uno has various wild cards, so feel free to assign those randomly, because someone is going to be reminded of a story about say, sky diving and be desperate to tell it, even though it's been two or three stories since sky diving was mentioned.
This game has been tested for safety at the Mount Hermon Writers Conference and various youth groups. Enjoy.
