The Mission:

Get rational thinking strategy games into schools and into the hands of students worldwide.

 Family Games America is an eco-conscious (we only use eco-friendly materials in production, manufacturing and in our offices) toys, game and puzzle company established in 1987 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Our motto is "think, play, laugh" and we encourage learning through strategic and rational thinking games.

StrataSphere 2.0 is a super simple 2 player strategy game that really gets you thinking!

Step 1: Players take turns placing a slider into the StrataStructure one at a time

Step 2: Players choose a colour (red or black) and take turns placing their coloured spheres into the StrataStructure

Step 3: Players take turns pulling or pushing any of the placed sliders in or out one notch at a time

Goal: Get all spheres out of the StrataStructure before your oppononent to win!

IMPORTANT: PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR SET-UP AND SPHERE PLACEMENT AS IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR STRATEGIZING AND WINNING STRATASPHERE!

The main focus of this campaign is to get StrataSphere 2.0 into schools. We believe that cut backs within the school system are harmful and detrimental to students and their learning. By getting StrataSphere into schools, students will get the chance to tap into their rational thinking along with the chance to pull away from screens and technology in a traditional face-to-face learning setting.

But...

We need your help to do so!

Risks and challenges

The challenge, difficulty and risk that we now face, is how do we get these games and other important learning materials back in the hands of our dedicated teachers and student and how do we influence and create a movement to do so. If we don't raise these funds, we won't be able to achieve this goal.

Our school systems have been devastated for years with cut backs. Funding for special programs, learning materials, games and other teaching materials have been slashed.

When we first launched FGA, we were able to use our games to contribute to the learning and development of students and to help educators and teachers in their task. Our motto of "Learning through Laughter" has always been suited for our games and we have gathered many awards along the way.

We are hoping that this campaign will help us raise awareness and enough funding to be able to donate as many games as possible to as many schools as possible.

Together we can make a difference one game and one school at a time.
