# Generica: The Ultimate in Generic Board Games!

## Generica the ultimate in generic board games!

For ages Qf to R3!

Generica is not just a board game like any other. Generica is the board game like any other.

Not only is it a generic board game, but it is also a generic ice breaker; when you are playing it, you will laugh and perhaps get to know the other players better. It will blur the line between silly and serious!

## The Board

This is the board I use now; I encourage you to design your own. Basically, you get a sheet of posterboard, a marker, brainstorm a little, and draw something that will let people move around and give them lots of opportunities to draw cards. Print out the printer-friendly version, so you'll have the rules and can cut apart the cards. That's all there is to it!

### Rules

1. Each player is to bring his own game piece — a small object of a size of approximately one inch or less — to use during play. The personal significance, if any, of the piece, may be explained.
2. Sit down around the board. The person with the loudest socks moves first.
3. When it's your turn, roll the die and move as many spaces as are indicated. You start at the antechamber and want to get to the inner room.
4. On a space with a diagonal picture of a card ("card space"), draw a card and do what it says or answer what it asks.
5. Colored spaces are secret passage spaces. If you are on a secret passage space, you may move to the other secret passage space of the same color and pattern as the space you are on. This counts as moving one space.
6. Play Generica as a generic board game. I'm not going to bore you by describing further.
