Each lush photo card connects visually with other photo 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.

OuiSi Nature portal

Our mission with OuiSi Nature is to build a sense of "connectedness" with nature. To do that we built an online learning portal companion where players can learn more about the nature depicted (including the full-blown photo).

On the back of each photo card you'll find a QR code and a card number. Simply scan the QR code with your phone or tablet (or visit our Nature page and enter the number). From there you will be guided to a OuiSi page dedicated to the photo card.

Photographers

We worked with 16 photographers from around the world dedicated to nature and its conservation. From mushrooms to meerkats, from oceans to owls, from "micro" to "massive," each photographer's unique focus and way of seeing is on display in OuiSi Nature. The OuiSi Nature portal contains a bio for each photographer and their portfolio of gorgeous and meaningful environmental work.Giraffes and fish sharing similar colors and patterns

FAQs

Is OuiSi Nature an expansion deck or standalone? Both! OuiSi Nature can be played standalone or as an expansion for OuiSi Original. In fact, the many of the photos in OuiSi Nature were chosen to complement OuiSi Original (like the pair below)!

OuiSi Original vs OuiSi Nature; a mooring and a boar

Should I get this version or OuiSi Original? That's tough. OuiSi Original is more of a "mindfulness" deck in that you are noticing the subtle marvels of the "everyday" through the photo cards. OuiSi Nature celebrates the splendor of our planet, with an intent towards building connection between people and the environment. If you can't decide, you can get both and enjoy the automatic discounts available for 2+ copies!

Can I order a copy of OuiSi Nature shipped to the EU or UK from the US? Contact us at info@ouisi.co to organize this as it would incur import taxes and expensive shipping.

Awards and reviews for OuiSi Original

This year OuiSi Original won awards from Tillywig Toys, Creative Child Magazine and the National Parent Product Awards. More importantly to us, however, are the reviews left by our customers. Whether for all-ages play, classroom learning or therapeutic use (from SLPs to memory care), we've read and cherished every single review of OuiSi Original. They tell the story of OuiSi better than we ever could, so we hope you check them out below (or on our standalone Reviews page).

As wonderful as OuiSi Original is, we think OuiSi Nature takes things to the next level in terms of beauty, ways to play (14 vs 9) and extra features (like our OuiSi Nature Portal). We can't wait to hear what you think and for the award admissions to open in 2022! 😊
