One board game, four generations, and 576 trivia cards: It’s all coming together in What Do You Meme?’s latest family game night title.
Great for family gatherings, holidays, and events, All of Us is a trivia-based game that brings together four generations, including Boomers, Gen X, Millennials, and Gen Z. Designed for 2-12 players ages 12 and up, All of Us challenges tweens and grownups alike to split into two teams of mixed generations to answer as many trivia questions as they can in 60 seconds to advance along the gameboard.
Growing up, I always loved trivia games, but without fail, the hardest part was dealing with historical questions kids would have no hope of answering, while other more modern questions were totally lost on adults. This game eliminates all of the uncertainty and puts all players on even ground — unless of course, you are living under a rock and are not up on your generation’s pop culture highlights. But the gamemakers at What Do You Meme? have a solution for that, too.
Each round, one player answers as many of the five questions on a single trivia card as they can, but first, they get to choose from which generation they want to answer. Even if you are technically a Gen-Zer (born in 1997 or later), you can choose to show off your boy band knowledge and love of bell-bottom jeans and answer a Millennial card instead. If a player gets at least three of the five questions correct, their team moves forward one space on the gameboard. The first team to earn 10 points and cross the finish line on the scoreboard wins the game.
And All of Us is not without some surprise twists and turns, largely introduced via the Time Travel and Wild cards. Plus, there’s plenty of time for all players to take a turn answering some questions. But don’t be fooled: Even though this is a team-based game, each player must attempt to recall the answers on their own, adding to the difficulty level.
It can be tough for the younger generation to relate to their parents or grandparents and find common ground, but with All of Us, everyone can enjoy game night together, and even learn a thing or too, as well. The game is challenging, exciting, and takes minutes to master. And with more than 2,800 individual trivia questions, it’s a fun experience families can repeat again and again without getting bored.
