Last weekend, my husband and I went camping with his brother’s family. After the kids finally went to sleep in the tent, the adults played Rememory around the campfire. I enjoyed hearing about my sister-in-law’s childhood in Alaska and her adventures as a flight attendant. I learned more about my husband’s relationship with his grandparents. I talked about my summer jobs as a door-to-door salesman and travels in college.
The game does allow for customized rules, such as guessing someone’s memory. You can also use the cards alone in order to expand your journal writing. However you play the game, there is a sense of grounding that’s both peaceful and fun at the same time. It’s just a cool game! These cards would be the perfect family reunion game. They’d also be helpful when interviewing grandparents.

Ages 13 and up. It helps if you have enough years to reflect back a little ways. Younger than 13 is fine too, especially if you like hearing the older folks tell stories about their lives.
