    Same game, that's just a gimmick they used to generate sales, like all those monopoly editions

    I shut myself in my room and cried for the whole of Saturday afternoon, thinking I'd never make friends. I felt nervous around guys at the time so I avoided my flatmates lmao. By the evening, they made me come out clubbing with them, and that's where I met a good friend of mine. By Sunday I started to feel more optimistic about university.

    I'm in the same position but I'm more worried about my flatmates being boring/useless, who am I supposed to do stuff with then?

    Ahh I see, I wasn't hating on teetotalism (if that's what you were thinking)! I've been out drinking a lot more recently leading up to my first weekend at uni next week, I just assume it's mandatory to at least go out clubbing for a while, get drunk and have fun! However playing uno does sound fun.. ;D

    I moved in on the Sunday so everyone was busy unpacking and had to enroll the next day, pretty sure our first full weekend was film nights/out at the SU. We ended up chilling in the flat playing poker and drinking.

    We did drink whilst we were playing UNO, just we didn't want to get smashed on our first night with two people we didn't know.

    The going out was saved for the rest of freshers' fortnight But that first night was really just settling in and being awkward. It worked though, one of the girls is now one of my closest friends at university.
