The game is simple, the implications are complex.
#MakeItAwkward presents Not That Funny, a tabletop game designed to uncover the damaging truths behind everyday "jokes" and microaggressions directed at marginalized groups and individuals. We are continuing to challenge people to call out discriminatory language and to become an "everyday activist."
Why the world needs this game
Not That Funny is in the news!
Uncomfortable, awkward and educational
Time-Out Cards—for when things get too heated. Each player starts the game with one card, to use at their discretion for a five-minute halt in game-play to respectfully discuss the situation before tabling it and continuing the game.
This is why we need a time-out card
"Change moves at the speed of empathy."
"To flip the script of the words we use, involves challenging old rhetoric, and committing to kindness and compassion."
Woo Hoo! It's happening!
Thank you to all those who supported our Kickstarter campaign and helped make this game a reality.
