OuiSi Original: Games of Visual Connection
I see. You see. OuiSi!
OuiSi Original ("we-see") is a set of 210 visually-connecting photo cards, with games and activities that foster creativity and ignite curiosity, regardless of age.
Each lush photo card connects visually with other cards in the deck, based on similar patterns, shapes, colors - really, anything you can imagine. Thousands of visual connections are waiting to be found, each providing a wonderful "aha!" moment.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Gorgeous creative photos! Beautifully created and packaged. My children 4, 8 and 14 all love this game!" - Laura A.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "We couldn’t love this game more! The engagement of my kids is a delight to see; their creativity, insights and vision overflowing within the first 10 minutes." - Michelle M.
Igniting young minds through connection
OuiSi encourages collaboration - like building off another player's card, or co-creating a web of connections. Our games foster observation and inquiry - "how does something connect?" or "what do you see here?" These questions are excellent building blocks for conversation, and plant seeds of curiosity into how the world is a connected place.
Fortunately OuiSi is also fun and intuitive for kids! And parents will love the flexibility of the photo cards and activities. In fact, you can lose or damage a few cards and it won’t affect the playability of the games.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I have a set at home and one for my classroom. Students are using the competitive format, their conversations are amazing! My own boys are making new games/rules. We're loving it!" - Cindy K.
Real all-ages play
OuiSi isn't JUST for kids. Families and friends will find the games and activities engaging regardless of age. That's because "visually connecting" isn't a skill that just improves with age. Visual connections exercise the brain, invite conversation and provide hours of surprise and delight for all generations.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "A beautiful game and a strong cognitive exercise. Excellent brain therapy for old and young alike." Kim M.
About the photos
All photography is original and mostly taken in New York City. The photos capture small marvels found everyday, from a crushed pop can to a sidewalk puddle. Each card is an invite to set down your tech gadgets and notice your own marvelous, everyday world.
The name of this inventive set of photo cards is “yes-yes” in French and Spanish/Italian, pronounced “we-see” in English. Fun, isn’t it? It’s a nod to our belief that pictures are a language almost all of us speak, regardless of age or background.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I bought one for my three grandchildren and gave another to my mother (78). I need to order another set for me!" - Amy C., Gifted Ed Teacher
