How it came to be:

We didn't set out to create a game to market to the rest of the world. This was actually borne out of a family "assignment." That assignment was to come up with the entertainment portion of our annual extended family Christmas party. We wanted to come up with a way to pass along stories and memories to the youngest generation while having fun as a large group. We came up with the first version (that we assumed would be the only version) of It's All About Family. We planned on playing for thirty or forty minutes. We ended up playing for much longer! We looked around the room at one point and noticed that 53 people from age 6 to age 65 were all engaged and having a blast! Most notably, not one cell phone, tablet or electronic device was out! (And we had several teenagers in the room!) We knew at that moment we had something special. And, we subsequently decided that EVERY family deserves to have as much fun as our family was having!

We added several elements to make the game more fun and varied. We had several families test play it and give us feedback, which we incorporated into the current version. We then completed the design and had 100 demo copies printed and assembled. We took it to Saltcon and had it test played with excellent feedback. We are currently working on a few changes that will make the game even better yet!

Thanks for checking our game out!

All components of the game are made in the U.S.A.!

Risks and challenges

We have plans that include quotes and agreements with companies for printing of the game at various levels of funding. (i.e., not reaching our funding goal on Kickstarter, barely reaching our goal, or over funding.) One challenge we are concerned about is if we are faced with the awesome problem of having to produce more than 40,000 games quickly, the 30 second timers we are currently getting from a company in America (American made) might not be available as quickly as we would want them. We are looking into that issue now and plan to be ready should the need arise. We will tackle each challenge that arises and keep you, our awesome backers, informed every step of the way!
