You're buried in old photos and albums, mired in files of digital images, and are the keeper of some of the stories. Plus, you know other family gathering have stories to tell, too. Or maybe you want to give a creative family storytelling gift that encourages family to share with you. 

You know that all those images and stories will be lost or not even told. How can you get family storytelling and sharing family history knowledge?

 
 

BEFORE AND AFTER your STORIED personalized family history Game

 
 

BEFORE

  • Maybe you have a family reunion coming up and you're in charge of thinking of creative ways to engage family at a gathering.

  • You've got loads of photos, lots of stories and you know others do, too. You don't have an easy way to talk and share these stories at a gathering so that conversation brings the generations together.

  • You don't have time or inspiration to get all the details of a gathering together, and come up with ideas to get people storytelling.

 

AFTER

  • Everyone plays along and enjoys the family photos and family history they learn. They have a blast. Stories are shared and more stories are learned that nobody knew. 

  • Your Family Timeline History Game is a hit that people want copies to play when they go home and for other gatherings. You've got an easy an affordable gift because duplicates are available whenever you want to order them.

  • The game was fun, but you soon realize that those custom cards of family photos and family information also serve as beautiful photo sharing flashcards. They are a valuable keepsake folks can just enjoy and share anytime.

Hello there,

The second of our children had flown in 2009, and I was in my mid-40s eager to switch gears in work as well. I wanted to do something meaningful, something that utilized talents and ignited joy. My husband asked, "If there were anything you could do for paid work (note the stress on pay!) what would it be? I said, "Drink coffee and listen to people share their stories." 

With his support and lots of my naivete, I started Storied Gifts and a dozen yearas later there has been lots of listening.

The Personalized Family History game came about as an idea for a client who wanted to use the information we'd gathered for his book in a format for a fun activity. Card prompts and family photos were crafted for our first game. My 94 year old client said it was so much fun I should create the game for others and so here we are. 

Are you short on time, and looking for a pro team to help you create your Custom Timeline Trivia Game?

Storytelling is the greatest activity of any culture. Storytelling is how you build family, how you pass along identify.

FAQ

Is working with Storied Gifts right for me?

Yes, if you photos and stories, and you want to share them.

How much time will it take to complete my Custom Family History Game?

As soon as we've gathered the photos and trivia the design and layout of your game will come together quickly. We'll work with you to meet a deadline but generally this process can take a couple of weeks to produce the game and then another week to print.
