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
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

us all talking about a car, an Olds Cutlass that became "the" car for
of our three children as they went off to college. It was a high
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
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

holiday family gathering was greatly enhanced
when we all played Family Lore. What a fun way to share all the
stories with the new in-laws, and to spark new memories to share with
children and grandchildren. My mother, brother and I had the most fun
all making our own customized cards in advance of the actual playing.

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
about holiday memories and one of my favorite memories is how my mom
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
entire family. After I had recounted my memories and how much I
those memories - each of my kids started telling me about how much they
look forward to our Thanksgiving holiday - and how much they enjoyed
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
work I put into preparing for Thanksgiving - a conversation I wish I
have had with my parents while they were still alive."

discovered the FamilyLore Game by accident while
doing research on the Internet. The concept of the game was most
unique and different. While most families would find the game
and entertaining - families in business together will find it has
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
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
Game! It is a great family fun game for kids and grand kids too!"

up, what was your favorite vacation?". My older brother's favorite
was ski trips to Utah. He retired and now lives in Park City! My
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
houseboat with our 6 grandkids! My brothers and I never connected how
early live experiences helped shape our decisions later in life!"
