In awarding Teamwork and FamilyPlay, The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval in 2011, said:
“Geared for families with children of all ages, our testers gave great reviews to this very unique and ambitious game. Game may not be the best term for Teamwork and Family play as what it really did was get families talking and sharing like never before.
Families reported learning interesting things about one another that they never knew before. Let’s face it teens and pre-teens aren’t always the most open when it comes to conversations with their parents.
These cards found a way to bridge the divide and get real conversations started. Each card is loaded with fun activities, many of them based on the pillars of Character Counts. Parents like that there were often brain teasers that required some serious thought about completing each activity. This would also be wonderful for leaders of Scouts, church groups and the like.”
