One of the best games ever created!
Thank you for creating such a priceless gift! I’ve already played w/my parents and I can honestly say, we’ve learned so much about each other & it’s brought us closer! Can’t wait to play through the entire deck! We can’t thank you enough!!!
I literally use these cards every morning with my parents. I randomly select a (blue card) and text it to them. It’s helped our relationship so much. A couple of their responses brought tears to my eyes. As a bestselling author, trainer, and educator, I believe every family could benefit from this product. Thank you.
An Opportunity for Healing
I cannot thank you enough for the creation of these cards. I have only played a handful of these cards with my parents and in that short amount of time, I can already feel our relationship not only deepen but also heal -- and that is HUGE. Thank you for creating this vehicle to help us learn the stories of our parents.
Learned Things I Never Would Have Otherwise
I think every family should play this game together to find out more about our differences in the way we see life and to find a common ground where we can learn things we would have never learned without asking the questions on these cards. I learned things I never expected and I am so thankful. Can’t wait to play it more often with my family.
Just played this last night. A family member was a bit nervous going into it, but I think it opened up. We recorded it, as it'll be a permanent record of some of our family's history. Even though our family can understand English, having Chinese on the reverse helped remove the dependence on the native English speakers on translating.
This is THE PERFECT game to bring home to the holidays. More than ever these last few years have taught us that life is short, life is precious - take the time now to get to know your parents & grandparents better.
A gift for deepening connections with loved ones
I love the questions, that the decks are bilingual, and how my dad immediately opened up to the first thought-provoking question. I'm telling everyone I know about these decks (even if they don't need the second language!). I bought more than I needed to give them out as gifts. Thank you for creating this thoughtful product/game!
love love love love this
Once we opened the package, we couldn't stop opening it afterward to keep asking the questions. What a great idea even for friends, not only between parents and children. Well done. The elders are certainly smiling down on you. Now? How do I order 10 more sets? LOL And I'm being totally serious!
Great conversation starters
My parents are immigrant Chinese and I've used these cards with them as well as other ethnic parents in my clinical practice as a I'm an Asian-American psychotherapist specializing in cultural issues. I'm so glad I found these as they are now an indispensable tool for engagement.
Great way to connect with our older generation
I loved how easy and thought provoking questions. Our elders may not want to answer then initially, but they will open up, eventually! I’ve grown closer to my grandma by asking her questions about her childhood.
This is such a wonderful project. The questions are so thoughtful. I've started asking my parents, aunts, and uncles. I've learned so much with some surprising answers. Two of my uncles felt honored that I was asking them and wanted to learn more about their lives. Thanks so much for creating this wonderful resource!
Deep Conversations Immediately
I played with some friends and immediately began learning more about them -- their families, preferences, personalities. This game has so much potential to teach empathy for parents of older generations, and friends alike.
This really warms my heart
The customer service is truly above-and-beyond and the product is really once of a kind. I applaud Joseph for this exceptional idea on how to connect with parents. He truly understand how difficult language barrier so if you’re reading this, Joseph– Thank you. Really.
Love this game!
This is a great game that I tried to play with my hyperactive late 70s aged parents. I learned quite a bit from them that I felt were more connected since it was in Tagalog. Highly recommended if you’re one who has trouble breaking the ice with your folks.
Great way to combat Asian awkwardness
The game really helped me understand my mom a bit more and put things into perspective for us. So much gets lost in translation, but her being able to read the question in mother tongue and respond accordingly helped significantly.

Sometimes we are so busy growing up we forget our parents are growing old.
We created a card game to get closer to our loved ones while we still can.
It opens up even the most reserved dads.
"I found out what my dad favorite food was growing up. That dude is the hardest layers to peel so the fact that I got something out of him that’s amazing."
It gets moms to share stories they've never told.
"My mom told me things she never told another soul. Maybe my parents are more open than most but they were pretty vulnerable even in their responses to the “light” questions."
Learn more about your grandparents that you ever have.
"I would say I'm pretty close with my parents, and speak their language fluently, but I loved how the cards delved deeper into their past. I learned a lot more about my grandparents than I ever have!"
Document life stories for future generations.
"We’ve been playing this game as a family with my father in law who has dementia. We are logging his responses so that we can share them in the future. Great way to connect! Love this game."
