What are the cards like? They are 3” by 3” and on a thicker stock than normal playing cards. The cards will feel like a stack of durable matte polaroids more than a deck of regular playing cards.
Are there other components inside for all the different games? There are numerous ways to use OuiSi, some of which require different components. To keep the the price of OuiSi down as much as possible (and to reduce packaging and waste), we decided that things like tokens, a blind, pencils, markers etc. could be easily found around the house. Also, we are adding new games as we go (with those instructions on our website), and we can't account for potential components.
Who took the photos? All photos are original. We took the photos over a two-year period, admiring the small details in our everyday lives. Sometimes we specifically looked for patterns, shapes and colors for matches to photos we had already selected. Sometimes, it was serendipity.
Where are the games made? The design work was done in Brooklyn, and manufactured in China. We looked hard for a local solution, but the technical ability and quality found with our overseas manufacturer was second to none globally. They've done a great job and we are proud to work with them.
