FamilyLore Game is the invention of Bob McClure. Bob and his wife were school teachers with young children and living on a tight budget.

One Christmas they were strapped for funds. So instead of overloading their credit cards, Bob decided to create a board game that the entire family would enjoy.

That was the birth of the FamilyLore Game!

When relatives and friends learned about Bob's new family fun game, they begged Bob to make one for them too!

Over the years, Bob perfected the FamilyLore Game and today it is presented as a professionally produced board game.

Everyone loves FamilyLore Game because....

It's about you and those you love!

Learn about your family and tell your own family stories as you travel around the Victorian-style Game Board!
 

"...discover the small details that make our lives so unique and personal."
 

"FamilyLore Game is a great game for bringing families together to talk and discover the small details that make our lives so unique and personal. When we played with my wife's family, I was proud to be the only relative who could answer certain questions about my mother-in-law, which demonstrated the importance of our long morning-coffee-based conversations over the past 26 years. And my mother-in-law and wife just loved creating personal questions which they could insert into the game to be played by the whole family on Thanksgiving afternoon after the big turkey dinner."

David Tabish, Pittsburgh, PA 

"... an opportunity to reminisce many good times."
 

"My wife comes from a small family, of which she is now the matriarch. The "FamilyLore Game" was given to her to play with her nieces and nephew and their families. She took it to the family vacation / reunion at the shore. She said it provided an opportunity to reminisce many good times. She also said the questions with the game provided examples and the best part were the questions they made up."

Jerry Vanim, Washington, DC

"... share some of our backgrounds and interests and find common bonds."
 

"Although this is an ideal game for families, I find it a perfect way to get to know my friends and acquaintances on a whole different level. It is a new way to share some of our backgrounds and interests and find common bonds."

Joan Smith, Chautauqua, New York

The game becomes UNIQUE to your family!

The unusual feature of FamilyLore Game is that you personalize it by writing Story Card questions about your family. The fun Increases as cards are added!
 

"We take the question cards on trips for her (and our) entertainment."
 

"Our 7 year old is crazy about FamilyLore Game. She likes to make up new questions about our life, her grandparents, school mates, friends, vacations, the dog, what happened when she was born, our old home and the new one, and so on. We take the question cards on trips for her (and our) entertainment."

Katy and Randy Benefield, Austin, Texas

"...bring together generations around both commonly held knowledge and family members' little-known "secrets."
 

"Family Lore is a wonderful way for a family to remember its history, celebrate its unique significance, and bring together generations around both commonly held knowledge and family members' little-known "secrets." In addition to a core of ingenious built-in questions and instructions, the FamilyLore Game encourages and assists players in customizing the game to their own shared events and histories as well as relive memories and, often, discover things about one another that they never knew. Great fun!"

Gary A. Griffin, Rancho Mirage, California

"... younger family members need this interaction and knowledge of their family heritage and times from the past."
 

OUR EXPERIENCE:

 A new twist to the old familiar family reunion or holiday gathering. Now your family can share some moments laughing and sharing, as you all join in on a game of Family Lore. A game customized and tailored to your family and the unique stories and traditions involved within that circle.

 Have a family secret you have been holding on to? Oops! The cat will be out of the bag now! Now everyone will know "who stole the cookie from the cookie jar!" Yes You!

 This game involves 5 laps around the board to win. Each stop may involve another story being shared by the one making the move. What type of story is requested depends on the space landed on. You may be asked something like "Who was the toughest disciplinarian when you were growing up?" or you may be setup by a family member who creates their own unique question for you to land on - then you are in trouble! There are 600 cards total. 300 of them are filled in and 300 are left blank for family members to create their own.

 This is a game that will grow with the family and each year you can add to it. This will be one everyone wants to play again and again - which is great! The younger family members need this interaction and knowledge of their family heritage and times from the past.

 We all laughed our heads off playing this game. We had a few "Oh! BUSTED!" moments - but all was in fun and everyone had a GREAT time sharing the time and laughs together.

 This is a unique game. I have seen no others like it. This is not one that will go by fast, as everyone will get so involved telling their stories, you can expect it to take twice as long as you planned - but what an ice breaker at a family gathering. No more bored moments, waiting for someone to break out with a story - now everyone will share wonderful times together sharing their past and present. Everyone will have the opportunity to be a hero and story teller in this game.

 A game that simply creates bonds between family members and allows every story to be heard. This is one that will soon become a favored tradition at family gatherings and all ages will enjoy sharing these moments together year after year.

"... kids learn so much about their parents and grandparents..."
 

"My family loves to play FamilyLore. We usually play it with 2, sometimes 3 generations. The kids learn so much about their parents and grandparents, and they've become quite good at making up their own questions. We have a lot of fun and learn a lot about each other's lives and memories. We are a close family, but the game brings us closer. It reminds us of the many experiences we have shared."

Shari Castle, Washington, DC

"... had our family laughing so much we were practically rolling on the floor."
 

"Your Familylore Game had our family laughing so much we were practically rolling on the floor. A question about cars started us all talking about a car, an Olds Cutlass that became "the" car for each of our three children as they went off to college. It was a high mileage used car that was passed down from one sibling to the next younger. The kids had nicknamed the car "The Jalopsky" - and by the time the car finally left the family it was held together by chewing gum and baling wire - a wreck on wheels. Each of the kids had their own stories about trying to keep the Cutlass running. My middle daughter said she was motivated to keep it running so she could pass the car on to her younger brother so he could learn about "humiliation" like she had to do! What a great game - thanks!"

Peter G, Charleston

All ages have fun!

It brings family and friends together around the facts, events, and values important to them!
 

"... but his laughter still sounds in my ears. Thanks. What a good present I bought myself."
 

"We opened and set your game up about 2 p.m. Christmas afternoon. Since that time, it's stayed in place on my coffee table. We've changed players as folks come and go, but the game has been ongoing. More or less. This evening, the eight year old collapsed into giggles while trying to tell a bedtime story. We never got the story, he didn't get to move his spaces, but his laughter still sounds in my ears. Thanks. What a good present I bought myself! I hope you had fun creating it."

"What a fun way to share all the traditional stories with the new in-laws..."
 

"My holiday family gathering was greatly enhanced when we all played Family Lore. What a fun way to share all the traditional stories with the new in-laws, and to spark new memories to share with our children and grandchildren. My mother, brother and I had the most fun of all making our own customized cards in advance of the actual playing. In the course of the game we shared so many emotions - it was hilarious one moment and touching the next. Family Lore was a great way for us to recall and celebrate years of experiences in an evening."

Beverly Johnson, Silver Spring, MD

"...one of my favorite memories is how my mom and dad worked so hard to make Thanksgiving so special - always a feast fit for a king..."
 

"I would like to share with you a family conversation that resulted from playing your FamilyLore Game. I was playing with my four children - all married and with children of their own. We had a question about holiday memories and one of my favorite memories is how my mom and dad worked so hard to make Thanksgiving so special - always a feast fit for a king topped off by homemade pies and a homecoming occasion for the entire family. After I had recounted my memories and how much I treasured those memories - each of my kids started telling me about how much they look forward to our Thanksgiving holiday - and how much they enjoyed our time together as a family. It was a bitter sweet experience as I found great joy hearing my children talking about how much they appreciate the work I put into preparing for Thanksgiving - a conversation I wish I could have had with my parents while they were still alive."

"...great game for talking about family traditions, family values and family ethics."
 

"I discovered the FamilyLore Game by accident while doing research on the Internet. The concept of the game was most intriguing, unique and different. While most families would find the game fascinating and entertaining - families in business together will find it has special appeal. It is a great game for talking about family traditions, family values and family ethics. In some ways it becomes a history of the family and the family's business because the two are so interconnected. If you are part of a family-owned business, I recommend you purchase the FamilyLore Game! It is a great family fun game for kids and grand kids too!"

"We stopped playing and started talking..."
 

"FamilyLore Game is a game without end - Our family just loves it. Last weekend we had a family get together with my two brothers and their families. We stopped playing and started talking - a conversation that was started because of a question in the VACATION category: "Growing up, what was your favorite vacation?". My older brother's favorite vacation was ski trips to Utah. He retired and now lives in Park City! My younger brother's favorite vacation was going to the beach - he and his family now live in Ft Myers FL. For me, my favorite as a youngster was fishing and boating - and to this day my fun time is cruising Lake Lanier on our houseboat with our 6 grandkids! My brothers and I never connected how these early live experiences helped shape our decisions later in life!"
