Melbourne independent creative agency, By All Means, has invented a novel way to stop the endless chatter about the novel coronavirus with a novel game called Let’s Talk About… ANYTHING BUT COVID.
After a year of no travel, closed borders, inhibited social lives and locked down cities, the game is designed to get Aussies talking about, well, anything but the only bloody thing we all have to talk about this summer.
Featuring 52 conversation topics like: ‘Who’s your favourite cult leader’, ‘Whether you’d rather be struck by lightning or gored by a bull?’ or ‘Describe the colour yellow to someone who’s never seen it’, the game asks you to converse for a minimum of 2 minutes on each topic without anyone at the table mentioning the stinking rona.
“It’s been an absolute bastard of a year. We’ve all spent way too much time thinking and talking about this sodding virus and we figured the best gift we could give people these holidays is a fun way to avoid everyone sitting around the table at the end of Christmas lunch droning on about border closures, face-masks and the r-rate,” said By All Means Creative Partner, Toby Cummings. “It’s a bit of light-hearted entertainment at the end of a very un-fun year.”
