    Comments about INFUNITUM GAME:

    I received this as a gift this Holiday and my kids and I can't stop playing. We even take the cards to the car so we all can play. The topics are so different from other games we've played. Honestly, we were a little intimidated by the design and board layout. (The game box and design is really beautiful.) But when we read the 1 page directions, we started playing right away.I wish there was paper and pen included in the game, but that is easily remedied. Great game. Thank you Uncommon Goods for finding this. It is definitely a rare find, because friends keep asking where it's from and we saw that it's only in a few stores and not at your local [@] Thanks again.

      Comments about INFUNITUM GAME:

      I purchased this to play with our family of 5 (kids age 18, 20 & 22), as well as for our neighborhood game night with 3 other couples, who we have been having regular game nights with for 10 years.

      The voting over answers caused too many hard feelings and bickering when we tried it with the family. ("Name things that come in pairs." A pair of pants was given a majority of thumbs down, after much heated debate, for example, because the literal definition of TWO matching items was considered to apply.)

      We tried it with our laid back, alcohol-drinking, relaxed adult friends last night, and despite many belly laughs and uproarious answers, gradually the same phenomenon occurred. This, despite that I warned everyone of the possibility in advance, and every one thought they could be chill about it.

      I will be donating this game, in favor of other games we play that do not involve defending one's answers.

          Comments about INFUNITUM GAME:

          I played this game with friends and we had a good time. The only drawback was that the timer runs out of sand much too quickly - we needed more time to write. It may have also been nice to have a buzzer so that we didn't have to waste time checking to see if the sand had run out. A kitchen timer does the trick.

          Put the board away. Players ante-up. Host/Hostess begins. Reads list to be made. One minute - all share answers. Player with most left on list wins pot. No winner or tie, pot stays. Players ante-up. Second round begins. Hystericaland very friendly. All LOVE it.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Put the board away. Players ante-up. One player reads what to list. Player with most left on list wins $pot$. No winner or split, pot remains. My friends Love it as do I. Sorry, but I have to change the rules for some games I play. This just makes for an interesting and hysterical evening.

            Three generations (six people) played and played and played this game. It was amazing what we learned about one another, although we knew each other very well before we started. Since each player reads his/her own handwriting, it makes the game go quickly, and the one minute time limit for each topic also quickens the pace. I'll give it to other families to enjoy.

              One of the few games that a group of adults or a family can enjoy. Our kids range in age from 9-15, all could enjoy and there isn't an age advantage. The smallest child just might win a round! The game gives insights into how a player thinks and their experiences.

              Mixed review from the family

                Comments about INFUNITUM GAME:

                I bought this for my family, including two teenage sons, hoping to entertain us during the long winter break. The family had mixed feelings about this game.

                The immediate comparison that most people will make is to the game Scattergories. One pro to Infunitum, in my opinion, is that players are not limited by the initial letter of the answers (as in Scattergories). That is, one doesn't have to come up with "spicy foods starting with the letter X."

                There were a couple things we didn't like about the game. The board is divided into quadrants. Each player chooses which quadrant to travel. Each of us chose a different quadrant. However, the flow of the game path isn't clear, and several players (at several points in the game) accidentally moved backward instead of forward (and we're talking about people who are smarter than the average bear). Using the different quadrants also makes it harder to compare the players' progress. In the future, we all may choose to use the same path.

                Another aspect of game play that didn't excite us was the rule that players can overrule each other's answers, voting yes or no as to whether a point will be awarded. This led to a fair amount of bickering among my competitive family members.

                Overall, this wasn't our favorite game purchase of the season, and I don't imagine we'll play it nearly as often as I had hoped, or that we play other games.

                  It's fun to debate each others'answers.

                  Promotes discussion of some interesting ideas.

                  Sort of a mini creative writing exercise.
