Ugg-Tect is a hilarious game of prehistoric architecture in which two teams, made of up to four players each, race to complete stone-aged structures out of simple wooden blocks. Leading each team is the charismatic ugg-tect, who must guide his workers to victory using nothing but a basic vocabulary of primitive grunts, a series of exaggerated gestures, and his trusty club.
With just a few blocks, a stack of Project cards, and two inflatable clubs, you and your friends can
accurately recreate mankind's earliest architectural endeavors... more or less.
To begin, each team elects an ugg-tect to study the plans on a randomly drawn Project card. Without showing this card to his tribemates, this ice-aged intellectual must then instruct his team, guiding them as they recreate the project using wooden blocks.
However, the paleolithic language barrier is an ever-present obstacle; an ugg-tect and his tribemates may only communicate with a limited vocabulary of grunts and gestures, along with a few “corrective” taps of an inflatable club! “Ugungu” means “take,” for example, while stomping your feet indicates the white wooden cylinder. So if your team’s ugg-tect shouts “Ugungu!” while vigorously slamming his feet to the floor, grab the white piece and await further grunting!
If any of this sounds easy, ask yourself why you don’t see many stone-aged monuments around today. As each team furiously races to interpret the inscrutable instructions of their increasingly exasperated leader, the ugg-tect himself dances about shouting nonsense and wildly gesticulating, his inflatable club in one hand and his secret Project card in the other.
Convenient double-sided crib sheets provide each team
and their ugg-tect with a quick reference in caveman vocabulary.
Provided your tribe can stop laughing long enough to build the monument shown on the ugg-tect’s Project card, you’ll score points based on the difficulty of that structure (represented by a number that is also printed on the card). But if the other team judges your work to be seriously flawed (based on a few simple criteria), you must destroy your monument and accept a negative point to your final score. Play continues until one team accumulates ten or more points, after which the winning team’s ugg-tect is encouraged to beat his chest, swing his club, and chant “Ugg-tect! Ugg-tect!”
Perfect for parties, Ugg-Tect is riotously fun for cavemen (and cave women) of all ages. Choose an ugg-tect, grab a Project card and some blocks, and club your tribemates to architectural domination!
