Melbourne independent creative agency By All Means has created a novel way to stop the endless chatter about the coronavirus with a game called Anything But COVID.

After 2 years of no travel, closed borders, inhibited social lives and locked dows, the game is designed to get Aussies talking ... about anything but the pandemic. 

The game has 52 conversation topics. Players have to talk for a minimum of two minutes on each topic without anyone at the table mentioning the unmentionable.
