The Storymatic® Rememory™ Game - 230 Cards
This little deck of cards is a time-machine, a writing prompt and a game, all in one. The cards draw out memories of events and things you won't have thought of in years!
These can be used individually as creative inspiration - writing memoirs, poetry, painting etc. or to create easy non-competitive reminiscence or get-to-know-you group games.

A lifetime of memories in one little box!
If used individually this card deck can be used as a writing prompt to develop memoirs, poetry, essays or fiction - memories can inspire self-expression via drawing, singing, dancing too. Sharing memories is an easy, interesting way to get to know each other better and the self-reflection can help you know yourself better too. Suggestions are included for a number of different non-competitive group games.
How it works: Draw a card from each deck: Slate-coloured cards guide you to whose life to think about (e.g. you, parent, grandparent), Coffee-coloured cards suggest a context (e.g. school, work, season), then Ruby-coloured cards prompt memories (e.g. the smell of it, misunderstanding, at the movies, what they wore, keepsake, letters). Look at each card when selected or look at them all at the same time. Each way feels a little bit different. The first way funnels you gradually to memories, the second can let memory sweep across you.
It’s OK if what you remember feels small. Small is BIG. Even small memories can illuminate the great theme of our lives.
