1. How did you find the game?

The game was interesting as it helps families understand each other better and also creating art at the same time.

2. How do you find the questions in the game?

The questions seem focused on asking the elders about their memories. I suggest to add in questions to ask players about their future expectations and future planning. This could help family members to have a greater mutual understanding.

3. What do you think of the design aesthetics of the game?

I like the colourful design for the box and the cards.

4. If this game were to become a family bonding kit in future, do you think it could be useful?

Yes.

5. Any other suggestions? 

Not really at the moment.

Detailed account of gameplay

It was fun! My dad chose 2 colours to use. We had a question asking about our favourite book. Then, we started discussing like this mythological series. There’s this indian book called Ponniyin Selvan that was about the Chola dynasty and the empire. It was a period in time where there were lot of interesting spying, intrigue and court drama stuff. My dad chose a book from the same series. Then, I also said that series is one of my favourite in like Tamil literature. After which, we got into a whole discussion about which book in the series is better and who is our favourite character. We just use 1 question per round. Once we got our question, we just continue talking. We only needed 1 question for each artwork created.

Family #3

Number of players: 4
Age of youngest family member: 19
Age of oldest family member: 58

1. How did you find the game?

The game was fun! The instructions were also fairly simple and easy to follow. It’s a pretty good family bonding activity!

2. How do you find the questions in the game?

I like that there is a good mix of basic and deep questions. The cards really helped to get the conversation started. If the cards weren’t included, it would be much herder to think of questions on the spot to ask.

3. What do you think of the design aesthetics of the game?

The design is nice. The fonts and typography are readable and of a good size.

4. If this game were to become a family bonding kit in future, do you think it could be useful?

Perhaps, this game could help to improve the harmony in the family.

5. Any other suggestions?

Perhaps, you can consider another version where players can guess each other’s answers by writing on a white board . Maybe you can consider making it into a game for friends e.g.hen night.

Special thanks to Family #3 for kindly allowing me to film their gameplay.
