Long Story Short Game Analysis
Over the course of two weeks our instructor dedicated two days to playing ice breaker games. We were then tasked to right a review for each one, describing the game itself and how effective or non-effective it was. Listed below are those evaluations.

It wasn’t as fun but it got us all thinking of the questions we don’t always ask ourselves, for instance, “What is your purpose in life”. Most people don’t come across that question until much later in their lives. With The Ungame, we can tap into some of those questions and get ourselves thinking about situations, and more serious aspects of life that you don’t always talk about with a stranger. Both of these games allowed us to go outside of our comfort zone in one way or another, which is ultimately what you do when you meet new people. So, by default these games put us in the position we needed to be to talk to each other, and reach out. Both of these games would be very interesting to play at the beginning of the year, and then again at the end of the year. Just to see how much we have changed around each other and how comfortable we all have really gotten if at
