The cards are beautiful and the customer service was exceptional.
I have not yet gotten the chance to try out any of the game options with my grandchildren, but I am impressed with the quality of the cards and the variety of options for play. Looking forward to sharing it.
Even our 6-year-old grandson had a terrific time playing OuiSi - as did the girls in my art group!
Love the game and that it can be played in so many ways. It’s great that the images can be seen and interpreted however each player wants to play them.
Haven’t played this with my 5th graders yet, but I think it will be a fantastic way to develop skills in making connections and more!
I used my cards for the first time last night to close my Nonviolent Communication practice group. We all picked 3 cards that inspired a grateful thought and took turns sharing those thoughts. My friends liked the cards. I think I will use them for a demonstration of though associations next time.
Delivery+ busy lady + heart attack= box opened but the 2 puzzles still inside.
I purchased the Ouisi as a non-competitive game I could play with my grandkids ages 5 and 3. All of us love matching the cards. The kids do fight over the gumball card. It’s so colorful. Thanks for producing such an imaginative game.

The card are high quality. The card are good quality material and the photos are amazing. I bought them for myself as a way to spark my creativity. Also, I wanted to see if it was a game I would want to send to family members as a gift. Yes, I will purchase at least one more set for my family as a wonderful gift. Thanks for an inspiring produce.
I saw the game advertised on Facebook and I was interested in learning more. I read many reviews and am so glad that I placed an order. We have played a few times with different age ranges and all have enjoyed the challenge. It really gets your creativity flowing! Thank you to all responsible for coming up with this unique experience!
Lovely game. We enjoyed it after supper and had a great conversation about perception.
Such a fun family game..included a mivast age group from 4 to 93..we all loved it
This is just a really different, neat game to play, and there's so many different ways to play it. We are enjoying adding it to our game selection!
I was so excited to get OuiSi and the photos did not disappoint! Absolutely beautiful!
I have not had a chance to play but the photos on the cards are beautiful! It’s a top notch product and one I have wanted for ages! I’ll post another post after I play but I know it’s going to be great!
I am a speech therapist in a public high school. I purchased the Ouisi deck to use with my students to encourage conversation, compare and contrast, description, and many other communication skills. I love the deck - the students love the deck. The photos are interesting and engaging.
Got one for my wife’s birthday and one for my sister. Easy to play out of the box and the associations are limitless. Even kept my 3 year old nephew happy. Thank you for inventing this!
I gave it to an adult designer at a weekend away with friends - mostly designers. Images are beautiful. We made up our own game using the cards. The directions were too complicated for a Sunday morning. Maybe once we read the rules? So far - game: eh. Images: beautiful.
Graphics are unbelievable, grandkids engage in storytelling without prompts. I love it!
Played it at a family get-together and wrote our own rules…. You could make a connection with visual elements or start a story line. It was hilarious!! I don’t think we’ve laughed together that hard before… of course the wine helped.
This game was bought for my granddaughter. However Grammie and another Gram had to play it first. We loved it!!! So many different ways to play this game. What a perfect description...4 to 104 years of age will love it...and we did!
Took it out of the box & 3 hrs later, We were still enjoying ourselves...all ages, all minds welcome....what a unique & "eye-opening" game....looking forward to family game nights over the holidays with Ouisi....I see, You see, We see..
I bought both games to use with my students. I teach Elementary Art. I haven't used them yet, but they are beautiful and I hope my students get much enjoyment from them!
I use this with groups of children and groups of youth in a church setting, and it has been really popular. The pictures are beautiful and varied, and there are so many ways you can use the tiles. Kudos on a great product.
I’ll be developing a variety of classroom games and activities using Ouisi….. especially for our elementary students. I’ve already used in in a couple of adult staff development meetings to great appreciation by the attendees!
My granddaughter, age 4, played with me & her dad, age 35. It was fun watching her use her imagination but it was the 35 year old who really loved it!
We bought this for my father’s birthday - 101! He loves Scrabble and we wanted to see his brain work in a different way - he and we enjoyed ourselves very much! It’s a great game!
I purchased this for my friend’s dad, who has dementia. My friend and her dad play games with it to help his memory and cognition, and the speech therapist uses them as well.
We’ve only played once so far, but I love the open-ended, creative play options of this game. We have a competitive, rule-enforcing 6-year-old, which is usually great but makes including our 3-year-old a challenge at times. OuiSi game options allowed our 3-year-old to play together on an equal level which was fun!
I am a teacher and played with my 5th graders. They LOVED it! They thought the images were cool and it was so much fun to hear them talking and explaining their choices. It really got them thinking!
As a third grade teacher I found many children had difficulties categorizing random items using, shape, color, pattern, material, etc. I purchased this set for my grandchildren who are 4 and 6. They have had so much fun with making connections with the cards. Some of their connections make no sense to me, some have surprised me. We play a pass-a-long story game on car rides. They wanted to play that game using the cards. One person draws a card and starts a story, they name someone else who draws a card and has to continue the story using what they see on their card. The story keeps getting passed around until someone ends it. Very silly, but lots of fun. I would highly recommend this game for its fun factor, its versatility and its educational value. Well done.
I am a high school photographer teacher and I have found countless ways to use this game in my classroom. The quality of the cards has withstood multiple students over the years!
We love both games so much!
Awesome pics and great game from a great company!!
The customer service is excellent
Fun game for the whole family! From my 4 year old through to grandparents, we all enjoy playing together. I wasn't sure my 4 year old would "get" it, but he caught on right away and loves it. It's also a nice bonus that there is no winning / losing - it's just fun to play together.
We have the original, but ordered the nature version as a gift for my parents after seeing how much they enjoyed playing it with us. Highly recommend this as a low key way to connect and play - also great that someone can step in and out of the game without any significant impact so you can have it going on while entertaining, etc and not be completely beholden to the game and taking your turn.
I enjoy the beautiful images, by myself when I have a short time to myself, and also with others.
I haven't opened the box yet (it is a Christmas gift) but the box is nice and arrived promptly. I want to leave the plastic in place since it is a gift.
My grandson and I had so much fun just playing around and telling stories about the connections we saw in the photo cards. Beautifully made and a great opportunity to sit, chat and stay off the screens (for both of us!)
I have not had time to play it with my grandchildren, however I look forward to doing so. The photos are absolutely beautiful and the quality of the cards is top notch. I plan on starting with an iSpy game with my four year old grandson to help him get used to the cards.
Granddaughter loved it!
I love playing this with my students.
My 88 yr old mother is in a care center a few blocks from me and I was looking for something we can do together and talk about (especially on the weekends when there are no planned activities) that would stimulate her thinking and speaking. We've only played it once, and she needed a lot of assistance, but it achieved my goals really well! She told me to be sure and bring it back again.
I'm also looking forward to taking it when I visit my 5 yr old twin grandsons - they'll love it for sure!
The pictures are just beautiful and there are numerous connections to be made between them so it's great for discussion and realizing how other people think differently than you - which has been sadly lacking in our society for the past 2 years.
If I was still teaching, I would definitely add this to my 4th grade classroom, also.
I am a speech language pathologist and am always looking for good language building materials. These sets are gorgeous and encourage kids to learn similarities and differences, as well as the use of descriptive vocabulary.
We've been playing with our grandchildren and they love it! We've made up and adapted rules that work for five-year old twins and their 7-year old sister, and us, their grandparents. The cards are wonderful -- for the images and for their quality and durability.
I’ve been using Ouisi in my classroom for less than a week and I and my students—4K through Grade 12– absolutely LOVE it. In this photo, one of my more difficult students spent the entire class period laying out all of the cards just to see al of the images. The range of games/activities that can be done with the cards is amazing. I have 2 sets of each version and am just in awe of their beauty. THANK YOU!!!
Good educational and fun game.
I absolutely love this game. It is such a beautiful and intuitive way of play - but more than that, it's a way of interacting and understanding the people that you share your life with.
This game has been fun for both me and my girls. They can both be very rigid in their thinking so I've been using this game to teach them to think more creatively while they are just having fun playing! I can't wait to get the Nature cards to expand the possibilities. I would highly recommend to all.
My little grand nieces and nephews loved playing with this! And I was so happy to see them use their imagination instead of staring at an electronic screen. We played it together many times and never got bored. Love the photos.
As a Speech and Language Pathologist, I love using games to target my students' goals. Ouisi is a perfect way to work on building and expanding vocabulary, comparing and contrasting, and focus on overall expressive language. I love the multiple play options Ouisi provides. The photos are rich and thought provoking and the cards are made with high quality, long lasting materials. A great, new therapy tool to start of the school year!
Didn't like it. Pieces of pictures out of context don't work for me.
I love to play it with my grandchildren. They are 5,6,7. It is amazing to see how their minds and imaginations work!
Have only played a few times but can see this is going to be a game that has staying power. Certainly stimulates the old brain cells......my 87 year old father-in-law was certainly intriqed by it.
Beautiful photo cards.
Awesome game! Simple concept with endless possibilities
I am an elementary school art teacher who played Ouisi at a beginning-of-the-year professional development. The art department offered to purchase a set for teachers who would like one, so I bought one. Once it arrived (I'm pretty sure it arrived the next day!)I realized that I loved it so much that I wouldn't be able to stand seeing the gorgeous cards become dogeared with repeated use, so I went online and purchased my own set AND a nature set while I was at it. The cards are lovely and versatile, if only to gaze at for minutes at a time like I do.
My husband's speech therapist is working on cognitive therapies as he recovers from brain bleeds. These pictures are great for the exercises she assigns. We told her about Ouisi and plan to take some of the cards to show her next week.
I really enjoyed playing this on a two evening getaway with a girlfriend. She bought it for her family And grandkids, and I bought it for my family and grandkids. I love that it’s from four years old up. I have a granddaughter who will before in October and will love it.
I use the card in my art classroom. I let the students know what we are looking for, shape, color, etc... and then they find cards that relate to the ones they have. It's fun and helps my students see shapes, colors, and relationships in the world around them.
Bought as a Christmas gift to give my granddaughter and her family of 4 children. Early shopper! Will also buy the nature based set before Christmas to go with it. A very quality and beautiful set!
Ouisi is one of the most visually appealing games I've ever seen. It immediately caught and kept my attention as I flipped through the various cards. I also love how they spotlight the photographers behind the photos ... just genius! 10/10 game!
We played with our family, and had a great time. Everyone liked the game and found the pictures to be beautiful and interesting. The QR code on the nature game had everyone looking up the photos.
I bought 3 copies of the original QuiSi games. One for my niece and her family, one for my nephew and his family, and one for my classroom. I love that there are so many ways students, kids and adults and interact with the cards - from the matching game, to creating their one pictures of photographs to picking certain cards and then tell a story based on them.
I savored playing this game until I visited my daughter so only got to play it once so far. She lives 5 1/2 hours from us. I left the game at my daughter's home as she has some neighbor kids in grade and junior high school that we thought might enjoy playing. It is for all ages so their parents may enjoy it too. It made us have to think in a creative way, finding what was in common in the cards in our pile and those that were out there to play on. My husband is very competitive when he plays games and this made it fun to play a game with him. : ) Sometimes it took a bit to figure out what the picture was in order to match with it with, for example, wood with wood instead of matching shapes or colors but that is what we enjoyed about it, making it very unique.
We used these as an ice breaker for a group of educators. People enjoyed using them! The cards are just beautiful.
So fun. Taking it to the beach with us.
Hi Ouisi…I’m Julie.
I’m honored to share our Ouisi journey with you. It’s brought a rainbow of healing colors into our life.
As a storyteller, Ouisi has granted me a new pathway to connect to kids minds inside outside, upside, downside as I learn to color chronic pain. Ouisi offers healing opportunities to all the hearts it connects.
I purchased both Ouisi original and nature as a way to bring more color into my life. You see I live horizontally from a neck injury almost 10 years ago. Ouisi activates sensory energy within the mind, soul, spiritual and physical bodies aiding in healing on unique levels. Adaptive to be played anywhere.
Here are three unique examples of how Ouisi has helped expand, explore and connect the littlest of hearts all around the world on one month!
In 2020 My pillow found a pathway out of chronic pain by coloring it. Now we teach kids with cancer how to color their emotions using SEL Social emotional learning. Giving them a platform to SPEAKUp throughout their cancer journeys. While our storytellers raise their spirits with stories & sensory play using color!
In a way to give back SPEAKUp has created storytimes for 100 children living at the Celecho Orphanage in Zambia Africa southern province. In our first storytime held in June. We used Ouisi storytelling suggestion as a way for the kids to create their own story’s. Learning many of the images on the cards these children have never seen before. Watching the bravest minds spark with imagination and light as each story was crafted and explored. Ouisi helped connect 100 hearts to the same story as their minds expanded into new chapters.
ChiChi Musonda the 26 year old earth angle leading their fight for a better life. Shared with me that our first storytime using the Ouisi cards. Kept the kids sharing stories and ideas long after. Leading us to create a weekly storytime live from Zambia coming soon.
You can watch the above mentioned storytime at the link below. See how your art inspires future leaders. https://youtu.be/akSyXBsEIQM
Lastly and most personally Ouisi has made a game out of FUN…Finally Understanding Nothing. Hearts of all ages with in my hug have explored the rabbit holes within each piece of art, scanning its extended knowledge. Giggling through game after game even making up a few of our own. Finding joy, laughter, connection, and mind blowing FUN. Healing inside, outside, upside, downside with every flip of the wrist, scan of the top and journey through endless possibilities. We even wrapped up a handful for each to take home and journal about more chapters untold. Looking forward to filling in the story as it continues.
Thank you for helping us see beyond the image and read between the lines. I highly recommend these interactive timecaples be opened in every home, school, library, therapy and pediatric play center around the globe that heals or hugs little hearts.
Sending love & light to your community!
P.S. I tried to submit an order last week to send a set of Ouisi timecaples to our orphanage in Zambia. After submitting the address I was told this request is unavailable. I’m will attach the address below. If this is possible please verify any additional steps I would need to complete?

Had some trouble with the delivery but customer service was prompt and excellent. My family loves the game. My teenage daughter and her friends are enjoying it too.
Beautifully made and wonderfully imaginative
This is a fun game that we can play with our 4-year-old and both children and adults can enjoy together!
Good time with grandkids 7 and 11. Nice to play a game where they can help each other instead of competing.
Have only had the chance to try it out once with the grandchildren. Summer is busy! Played with a 8,6 and 3 year old. They all enjoyed it. Plan to try it out with some friends (all 65+) with whom I paint watercolors. Want to use it for a “warm up” exercise. Should be fun.
Just played it with my 8 yr. old grandson last week and he loved it! It was amazing to see how He connected pictures together! I saw a pretzel, whereas he saw a face! My 7 yr. old granddaughter played with it today with her dad and we were going out to eat and she had to take it with her to the restaurant! She and her dad were making connections with the pictures on the table before our food arrived!
We are still working on the game. It’s a little hard for our 5 year old grandson, but it’s a beautiful set.
enjoyed playing with adult children.
My daughter (24) and I decided to try out the idea of matching similarities between the cards. We really should have done this on the floor because just using 25% of the cards, we took up the whole table. We matched shapes in the cards, colors, things that are stacked, food-related items, images from the natural world, etc. With more room, we could have made the associations clearer I think. Then we tried taking three cards each and creating a little story. They were hilarious and highly unlikely ones. My daughter had a latte, a clock, and a log in one case and she connected them with theme: time - the first helps you make it through time, the second tells the current time, and the third helps you determine how much time the tree was alive. Looking forward to trying out some new uses.
Just played for the first time with my five year old grandson and his mom and dad. We created a far-fetched story and couldn’t stop laughing. It was very creative fun!
love the photography and my grandchildren love playing the game - sometimes they split the deck up and play by themselves right next to each other
My mother has dementia: We use the cards to help her to make connections, encourage her ( limited) cognitive skills and to continue to engage her. Thank you for this fabulous game….
I love this game! I love how open it is to so many kinds of play. I love the images, and the free-form association of visual and word ideas. It invites creativity, interpersonal sharing, connection to the whole wide world, perceptivity, and fun.
I bought this gift for my husband who is an Occupational Therapist, for use in the rehab department. It looked like a great activity for improving visual scanning and visual neglect, cognitive retraining, fine motor coordination and manipulation, functional reaching, etc.
I bought this game to play with English learners in my classroom, but my daughter (9) and I have been playing together and having a lot of fun. It is creative and engaging!
Fun game for the whole family! Fosters creative thinking!
My son and me absolutely love this game —- it sparks creativity in us both!
I am a little disappointed with the photo selection. I was hoping there would be more examples of fractals like a crack in a sidewalk looking like an overhead view of a river, etc.
We will have to play it more. We played just once.
We took OuiSi to the beach with seven grandchildren. One started playing then the five year olds joined in. Everyone could make connections, some pretty far fetched, but connections just the same. It was a delight to watch them explore the cards to make their choices.
I purchased this set for my four year old grandson who is way beyond simple matching games. He got the hang of it right away and uses the cards every day.
I like the cards. I have not used it yet because I bought it for my classroom. I teach English as a second language and plan to use the cards with new English speakers. I have not looked at the options for using the game alongside developing new vocabulary, but that is my intent.
This is the most wonderfully relaxing and fun game. My kids love it and it has been such a pleasure to play with them. We make up our own games and sometimes just enjoy guessing what the images might *really* be. It is a great mindfulness practice as well. So, so happy with this purchase. We may be ordering the nature themed set soon.
Absolutely LOVE the game. I'm an artist and thought it might be fun, as well as a learning opportunity for my friends to open up their eyes to their surrounds. It has worked! I have heard, "I never thought about looking at that in that way".
Have played several times with six-year-old grandchild. The laugher is usually started when one of us cannot determine what the picture is of. We end up making up silly answers like the back of an elephant's ear. We may someday read the instructions, but right now the game is to use our imaginations and laugh at all the silly. Pure Joy. Thank you
Played with friends and my little kids. Love the collaborative experience and sharing how we each saw the photos and connections between them. Definitely recommend!
Cant wait to use it in my classroom
I substitute teach all grades, and like to take extra activities for students after their regular work is done. This is the perfect game for any age.
I played this with my 5 and 3 year old grandsons and it was so interesting to see how their brains worked. There are no rights and wrongs in this game, just different perspectives and it makes everyone think. Love it!
There are so many options for play but I find it both relaxing and stimulating to play the simplest version of pure commonalities using color, material etc. I also want to rave about the service. Received my OuiSi within a few days of placing the order. You guys are as good as Amazon!
Beautiful photos and even my two year old loves the photos. We look at them and organize by colors she is learning. There are many ways to play and I love the free format of it. You can make up your own activities and games. We pulled out some nature photos and looked for similar things on a recent walk though our wooded park. Lots to do! Can’t wait to see all the ways we will use this.
