About the Game (Why Family Matters Matters)...

 

You might share the same roof but how well do you really know your family?

Family Mattersâ„¢ invites players aged 7+ to share stories, discover trivia, do funny things and creatively explore 140 make-believe, location-based issues ("Fake Family Crises") from totally new perspectives.

Herding your family into a single room is hard. Convincing them to talk plainly and calmly about personal or emotionally charged topics is next to impossible. As communication, or a lack thereof, has such serious consequences, effectively addressing this kind of stuff - sooner NOT later - matters a lot.

If only there was a way to playfully facilitate self-expression and encourage collaborative conversation...

Enter Family Matters, the game parents will wish their family played when they were kids. And if you're a kid, you'll be glad yours did.Â

Game Objective

Players pile into the family car, taking turns driving through town, responding to questions and/or tasks along the way. Once everyone has driven, the car races toward the finish line (Weekend Wish) to see whose idea of family fun will soon come true.

10 Reasons to Believe...

1.  Better Indeed LLC gives a 10% "fundraising stipend" to any approved organization that sells the game.

2.  Family Mattersâ„¢ questions promote increased interpersonal understanding and communication.

3.  Family fun is the happy by-product as the game ends with one player's Weekend Wish (for fun) coming true.

4.  Each player has an equal chance of winning, i.e., having their Weekend Wish come true.

5.  Family Matters playfully addresses 140 carefully-considered, real-life issues (aka "Fake Family Crises").

6.  Fake Family Crises expands horizons as multiple, alternatives perspectives (to each crisis) are explored.

7.  Family Matters offers blank pages for families to add their very own crises (real or otherwise) to explore.

8.  Family Matters fosters teamwork as all players ride together in the same car - and take turns driving, too.

9. Competition can be added to the game should your family find it more compelling to play for points.

10. Family Matters was made in the U.S.A.
