Three, or Four, or Five Can Play at That Game

Togetherness can be tough—but it's easier when you make a game of it. Real-life parents David Oswell and Alexandra Drury's Family TO DO Game is comprised of cards that cleverly detail various group activities, designed expressly to pull family members both big and little away from their screens for a bit of old-fashioned quality time. And with cards that ask you to craft your own pizzas, write stories together, and talk through your family history, there’s something fun in it for everyone. Plus, it's a game that gives back: The makers donate a portion of the proceeds from each sale to Their Beautiful Game, a non-profit organization that provides sports equipment to children in the developing world. Designed in Australia; printed in China.

In an era of near-constant screen-based distractions, Sydney, Australia-based couple David Oswell and Alexandra Drury sought to revive the art of focused, creative family time. With a little help from their six-year-old daughter Freya, David and Alexandra soon developed a simple mechanism for forcing one another to drop their phones, turn off the TV, and pay attention to one another (yes, really)—they made togetherness a game. After one year of development spent refining the game’s design and tweaking its 30 fun activities, David and Alexandra officially launched the Family TO DO Game, sharing their brand of family fun with the public. And since its launch, David and Alexandra have expanded their own family, welcoming a second child, baby Harper.
