When I was 12 years old, I created the Dad's Game for my dad's birthday. While I was brainstorming what to get my Dad for his birthday, I realized he would love a game! I thought, not a board game but instead a game where Dad gets to talk to me about his life and memories!
So, I came up with a bunch of questions about him that would help make a great birthday experience for my dad. I then created a game concept where me and my brother along with my mom could ask questions about his life. Lastly, I drew a game board where every space was a question someone got to ask! I added a die and some board game chips to complete the gift! My dad loved the gift and we spent time together talking about his life.
My dad kept thinking about the game and talking to me about how he thought it was something that deserved to be shared with other families! So, with my Dad's help, we built the Dad's Game to be a personalized way to connect you with your dad. We think the game you create here will give you a lifetime memory and your dad will love it!
