Unplug and Play

A program for students, by students, Unplug & Play brings you all the feels of family game night with some life-sized additions. UB Rec & the Bulls Team Shop have teamed up to offer UB Students a weekly night of fun, games, popcorn, music and major shopping sales!

Disconnecting to Make Connections

UB Rec provides a fun, unique program that does not require electricity and disengages us from technology.

During each semester, giant, life-size games create an inclusive, low stress environment that allows for fun competition. Unlike basketball, baseball, and other sports, Jenga, Corn Hole and Connect-4 do not require a specific sport skill set. We have chess, checkers, Yahtzee, coloring pages, and other games and activities.

Fall 2022, UB Students can enjoy 20% OFF all purchases made at the Bulls Team Shop on Friday’s between 5pm-8pm. Come end your week with a laugh, make some friends, get geared up and enjoy some games.

We’ll be in Alumni Arena every Friday evening this semester from 5pm-8pm, ready to unplug and play with you!


Date:  Every Friday*

Time:  5pm - 8pm

Where:  Throughout the Alumni Arena Foyer

Who:  Anyone is welcome to play

Come out and throw a few bean bags or try a game of chess; disengage from your phone or computer and have some fun with others. No registration necessary. Games will operate on a first-come, first-serve basis.

*Unplug & Play programming is only available during the semester, 8/29/22-12/9/22. Hours are Subject to Change. For real-time updates, please visit the UB Events Calendar.

Minute-to-Win-it Games

We are bringing Minute to Win It, an international game show franchise where contestants take part in a series of 60-second challenges that use objects that are commonly available around the house, to Unplug and Play!

If you complete the challenge in a minute or less, you win. Sounds easy, right? Well, sometimes, it's not.

Stay connected with UB Recreation social media to find out which nights we are offering Minute to Win It games!
