Last weekend, students at UNH set their sights high to try and break the record for the number of people playing the popular card game, UNO at one time. The previous record was 350 people, and with help from MUB and Sic’em volunteers, students came out into the rain to help break the record.
Unfortunately, UNH did not quite make the cut, with a mere 100 people showing up to play. Although this is considerably more than the 30 people who showed up last year, it is nowhere near the 200 that assistant director for student leadership Dave Zamansky was hoping for, and even further off from the 350 needed to break the record. “It’s something to build up to,” Zamanskey said, noting that the rain probably had a lot to do with the turnout.
Zamansky said that he will definitely continue the event next year, so hopefully more people turn up so UNH can break a record and get its name out there. Besides, with prizes such as an iPad 2, a Kindle, and Frozen Fenway tickets, why not try your hand at some UNO? Little kids do it all the time. Let’s build up some hype so that next year we have a little bit more to show, even if it is just UNO.
