The Upside

Laugh with friends as you discover hope in the bleakest situations your twisted minds can invent.
Inspired by research into how positive thinking (and a sense of humor) promotes mental health, The Upside is a lighthearted and uplifting way to spend 30 minutes realizing that you might not have it so bad after all.
Watch out for appearances by ninjas, zombies, and pirates as you take turns rolling the story dice to come up with the most tragic situations imaginable. Then watch as your friends race the clock to find the most creative positive spin to give life's horrible disasters.

Notes

  • This game contains laser cut components. Laser cut items will have a slight amount of soot around the edges, which can easily be wiped off; and will have a campfire smell for about a week after you open them.
