The cards are beautiful and well made. We love playing it with our grandkids
It was a gift for my mom and she absolutely loves it
The photo cards are outstanding and interesting. Scanning the card for more information is loaded with learning g opportunities for all ages. This open ended game is fun in so many ways!!
I am a Marriage and Family Therapist who works with all ages. Recently I purchased OuiSi because I thought it looked like a beautiful way of connecting for clients who have more limited verbal communication skills (such as kids, those on the spectrum, and those with traumatic brain injuries). So far I have been able to utilize OuiSi with a client on the Autism spectrum and have found it to be very helpful, and the client appears to really enjoy this activity. One of my colleagues also borrowed my OuiSi and loved it so much she is planning to buy one for herself.
This is a valuable tool for those in the communication and therapy field. Thank you for creating it!
So many fun ways to play with these cards!
I am an art educator and PhD student. I use these fabulous images in my lessons with middle school students and as prompts and brainstorming devices in my research.
Also, when I purchased them, I was very happy to receive a teacher and bulk discount.
They are what they say they are, good quality images of patterns and colors in nature. I would strongly recommend.
love this game! i have the original version and love it so much that I came back to purchase the other two versions. I brought this to work and have played it during lunch and coffee breaks with co-workers who were new to the agency. it's a good ice breaker and opens up communication. great for making connections. this resulted in putting in another order with 4 co-workers wanting to purchase the game. my friends 7 yr old daughter loves the game and plays it by herself whenever she can't find people to play with her. great game. great as a gift. perfect for all ages!
Sent to a niece and a nephew in different states. Entire family LOVES lOVES LOVES playing Ouisi.
The pictures are truly stunning! My daughter loves everything about the game, which she got for her 8th birthday recently. She doesn't know that I actually bought her the Ousi Nature game, in addition to the Ousi Original, as I want to surprise her with it later. Excellent idea and a unique game that should be in every home!
I purchased two different sets from you. They are both gifts to young children. Soon we will all be playing with these wonderful cards. Thank you so much,
This is our second pack of Ouisi Cards. The photography is beutifully, outstanding! We LOVE the QR codes to look up the animals and plants.
We play this with our 4yo grandson and he loves it! So We love that it spans the ages.
We love this game! It's been the "must play" for Christmas 2 years in a row. I gave it to a friend and it is now their favorite vacation family game. There are so many ways to play. I appreciate the non competitive options since my adult children tend to be super competitive. Great fun and no fights!!
I had a problem with a recent order but customer service responded quickly and quickly "fixed" the problem.
We gave it as a gift to a grandson and as of yet have not personally used it. Would love to comment on it once we do.
Thank you for asking.
Just what I was hoping for! I've had my eye on this for ages but wanted to wait until our daughter could really appreciate it. We opened it for her 4th bday today - she LOVED the nature/animal designs and it took her mere seconds to learn. At the end she was raving how she the game was so great and she wanted to keep playing. Great fun for the whole family, and really challenges the little ones to make those mental connections.
Normally our family likes math and word games. For those not as gifted in math and words, this was a better choice. No deep thinking, although it required that skill of observation---which everyone should cultivate, right?
A nice change for those minds who can't function late at night. Looking at the pictures was refreshing, but the game still challenged all.
It is a present for my granddaughter and her birthday is in a few days. I can tell you that I love it and use ouisi patterns that I find as inspiration for my artwork.
I have given Ouisie to my great grandsons, I gave myself we see nature and I worked with my heart, making friends to play the dominoes game with Weezy and everyone loved it, and several people also bought Ouisie. It’s a great great tool for imagination understanding, and creativity.
Played with my family today and we had a blast! Everyone ages 7-60 something enjoyed it!
My students love OuiSi!!! We use it as a class warm up. I will post pictures and my students will get into groups and find ways to organize the pictures and explain the rules they come up with! It helps build their vocabulary and expands their critical thinking skills. It is a great resource to have in my room.
This purchase was a gift to a friend to play with her grandchildren. I have played it with my family and we all enjoyed the ease, beauty and opportunity for interaction with the game.
We gave this as a gift for a 5-year-old. The parents were very excited about trying it.
I love the nature set just as much as the original! My family enjoyed playing over the holidays. What do we like? It's not particularly competitive, abstract, open ended fun! And it engaged everyone from 30-75, without requiring special skills or knowledge -- just the ability to tell a good story about the connections. (We made up our own rules.) I was surprised and amused by just how creative some were. The photography on the nature set is just as beautiful as the original. Next, I'll use them in a college classroom.
Thank you Ouisi team! Looking forward to the next set.
My 7 and 4 year grandchildren absolutely love the nature set. They try to guess what the pictures are and then we scan them. Gorgeous photos and many ways to enjoy the set!
I am an ESOL teacher at a Title I school in Virginia. I heard about OuiSi from a colleague. She uses the Original and Nature versions. Students work in pairs to find how the pictures are connected. OuiSi is a fun way to get my students speaking and finding patterns. I also like the QR Codes that give more information on each image! Thank you for making such a great game!

I presented your game at the American Camp Association Tri-State Camp Conference in Atlantic City on March 16 as part of my session "Creative Activities That Foster a Culture of Inclusion." I presented it as an icebreaker. The cards help you to learn new ways to make connections with people, and once engaged, conversations can continue to see what 3 additional things the "connectors" have in common. Everyone seemed to be pleased with the many uses. I am going to pitch the game to various counselors at our camp: using the cards to generate choreography for our dance program, to generate stories for our film program, for mindfulness (to help campers and counselors with anxiety), to our art counselors to generate Art, and who knows what other one uses we may discover. I plan on filming and photographing your game in action and sharing what we came up with! x John James Hickey (JJ)
This was so fun and creative to get to play with my mom!! We ran out of space on our entire kitchen counter so we are definitely playing it on the floor next time.
What a gorgeous game! We loved the open-endedness of it. The cards are beautiful. We spent so much time scanning the QR codes to get more information about each card. It is such a creative game for all ages.
We love this game! We have all three, and nature is our favorite. So beautiful. I've played it with friends, with my teenage son, and with a church group, including someone with disabilities. It is a great, non-threatening way to engage and make connections, both with the cards and with other people!
Such a unique and fun way to connect with students. Open ended and beautifully created.
We have both the original and nature additions. My daughter loves both, but here favorite is the nature addition because she can use the code to learn more about the picture. This purchase was for her best friend for Christmas. That way both girls have a set a home to play with alone and when they visit each other.
I love my Ouisi. I am a play therapist and having the Ouisi is like having a new toy out, every week. Because we find different ways to play with it. Even the quiet kids, get in the action and love it. I do work at different clinics and regret that I have one box only and need to carry it around to different sites. But, I don't mind!
I finally had the chance to give OuiSi to my nieces and nephew, ages 12, 9, and 8. We played on the dining room table after dinner, and it was a great experience. Our game was a variation on one suggested in the directions, where we took turns placing cards on the table that matched one of the cards already in play; we drew from the deck if we couldn't find a reasonable match. I asked the kids to explain what they thought each match was, and they started to see patterns emerging. I left after a bit to talk with the adults and the kids played on--we could hear them talking about what they were doing until they exhausted the entire deck. A total win: the game is engaging; it sparks thought, a bit of puzzlement ("What is this a picture of?"), creativity, and humor.
Stunning photos, excellent quality card stock, and a truly stellar gift to give others...I couldn't be more pleased with my Ouisi purchases. I'm beyond satisfied with the superior quality of the games and the customer service. I gifted all of the first sets I ordered, but I was so impressed with the games that I had to order more to give to myself!
Such a fun and creative card game! Everyone truly wins. I love the QR reader feature on each card that directs the players to more info about each photographer. High quality and delightful cards. I bought one of the nature sets for myself and one for A friend.. and I'll likely be back to order another version! I highly recommend Ouisi, a feast for the eyes and welcome alternative to competitive card games.
Such a useful educational tool that I plan to order dozens more and use with teacher professional learning!
We have two kids, 3 and 5 years old. This is a game we can all play together. It's fun and beautiful and unique. We love it.
This was a Christmas gift for my 5 year old grandson. We had a lovely time looking at the cards and deciding how to match them up. We discussed what was pictured on the cards and where you’d find the items. It was a very nice, engaged afternoon. Thanks!
I have enjoyed the visual sharpness and wide array of photos of Mother NAture and her creatures. Have used the Ouisense meditation with all senses. Fascinating.
Ouisi is one of my favorites! It's a highly engaging and flexible game that I love using with others in education to create community and connections to nature during professional learning sessions.
My grandchildren love looking at the amazing nature photos, and making connections. They also love scanning the codes and finding out more. Thank you!
Got it as a family Christmas gift and also gave as a gift.
Very cool brain game and just fun for all ages.
My students love looking at the images, trying to figure out what the things are and trying to make connections. It's terrific for working on oral language.
Looking at every single picture!!!!!!
I gave this as a gift to my mother. The pictures are beautiful, and I can't wait to explore it more with her. The cards are a nice, sturdy quality. It's just as I expected!
I have not actually played any of the games yet, but I love the photos and the whole concept of your product. I intend to use the cards for an exercise in my Intro to Art Therapy course.
Thank you for creating it!
The pictures are incredible. This is a fun game with friends and an interesting game of insight with family. It's intriguing to see how people see things, their perspectives, life is perspective.
I use OuiSi in my classroom. It is great for observation skills and building concept mapping.
The game provides an excellent means of developing verbal skills in youngsters. My 6 year old grandson loves it.
I really enjoy it. My friend and I challenged ourselves to see how many points of similarity we could find between cards.
Ouisi stretches the imagination and when players justify their perceptions about why certain images go together, it can also be pretty amusing!
My grandsons love to play Ouisi. The creativity in matching is exciting
Relaxing and fun.
I used the OuiSi cards to create a "Close-Up/Blow-Up" lesson for middle school art class.
I cut masks that allowed the students to only see and draw one quadrant of each OiSui Card, which they enlarged onto a corresponding quadrant of 9"x9" sheet of paper.
Using a pencil the students lightly "maped out" each quadrant looking for the shapes, proportions, and angles in each quadrant. After removing the masks, they then could see the entire image and define their lines. I encouraged them not to erase anything, but leave the "learning lines" as an underlay to the image. They then outlined in sharpie, and finally water colored each image.
The vibrant close-up images were interesting for the students to try to reproduce. Rather than trying to draw a specific animal, I wanted them to be looking for lines, shapes, and proportion which of course added up to be an animal when the 4 quadrants were uncovered.
Son loves it, wife loves it. They love scanning the pictures and learning about the animals and plants. It is nice that it is so open ended and so much variety.
Beautiful pictures and interesting, convenient links. We are a little confused as to how to make a game out of it though.
I use this in my classroom and the kids LOVE it! Great conversations! The students justify their choice and explain their reasoning. This is an engaging way to provide opportunities to reinforce classroom conversations.
I gave this creative and beautiful game as a holiday gift for a family with children ages 4 and 7. They all love playing it together!
Excellent game for use with autistic children and special needs children. I am a special Ed teacher.
Family fun. Great for imaginative and creative play. We had a blast creating stories as we added pics.
Small family. Not gaming people but thought this would ratchet the game up. Looking forward to trying work friends
I purchased several of these gorgeous sets as gifts for our adult children to share with their families. They arrived in a timely manner and in my never-ending quest to invest in quality over quantity, I was very pleased with how well-made and sturdy they are. They felt just right as a really NICE gift our kids could enjoy for family time together. Highly recommend!
My kids really enjoy playing this game
I gave this to my grandkids. They have loved it!
My girls had the whole living room floor covered with cards. It was wonderful!
Great memory game! Received shipment on time, and is as advertised. Thank you!
I enjoy this concept greatly! I love being able to make connections, open up conversation, and learn more about the world around us. Thank you for creating such a versatile, inspiring product.
I purchased OuiSi for one family member who doesn't enjoy other types of games for various reasons. I thought it would also be something we could do with the grandbaby when she gets a little older. Most of my family was underwhelmed - they prefer cards or word games. But the person I bought it for was enchanted - she had built a whole story just out of the card photos on the cover before we even opened it! Hope to persuade the rest of the family by using the other variations on game play.
Perfectly beautiful, thought provoking, and opens up conversations with the grandkids that are amazing.
Gave as gifts to grandparents and to family with a 5 year old. Excellent and beautiful gift for all ages
I am teaching the game to many of my art students. Toward the end of class, it is useful to have this activity when some students need just a bit more time to complete their work. The rest of us draw cards and start making connections. It doesn’t matter if it’s my Ks or 6th graders, there is always lively interaction happening.
My granddaughter & I play it together. When she comes over it is one of the games she picks to do together. I am happy with my purchase and looking forward to when my grandson will be old enough to play with us.
Love family time playing games. This game gives us the opportunity to be together and have a great time together.
My students love it! We use it for vocabulary development and class discussions. It’s a wonderful way to learn and share!
I bought this to play with my grandchildren, and it has been a hit. The photos are beautiful! I haven’t tried more than 2 players yet. I like the freedom to adapt the matching parameters for each child. We always announce the feature we are matching, so I can tell how they are thinking. I also like that we don’t have to worry about losing a few cards.
Kinda wish I bought the original nature photos are intense
We played this over the holidays with a dear friend and my father in law. All of us have very different ways of thinking and relating to the world and it was so much fun to see what everyone was putting down in relation to the other images. We had a blast. And it’s beautiful !! 10/10 would recommend!
Can't seem to get anyone to play with me. Was really hoping that it would be a great family game. I even have an extra one that I don't know what to do with.
They are beautiful beautiful beautiful! This is the second set that I bought for my grandsons ages 5 and 2. They use them as matching and/categorizing games and just like to fool around with them!
Purchased as a gift
Both of the OuiSi games we purchased were given as gifts. We played some with a delighted 9 year old girl who enjoyed making up rules. She loved the photography on the cards a the assorted ways to make matches with color, shape, subject, etc. Grandma, Great Aunt & Uncle, & a cousin enjoyed watching her eyes dance while sorting thru the cards and as we played a game with her rules. She proclaimed it a cool game and looked forward to playing with her Daddy.
The other game was gifted to a teenager who has not yet been present to provide feedback.
I gave this as a gift to my niece and nephew who are age 3&5 they love it
A wonderful exploration amongst friends!
This game has provided so much fun and learning for our family!
5 and 7 year old grandsons dove right in to make all kinds of associations with the Nature Cards as a family Christmas present. They were excited about world wide photographers which was cool.
Unfortunately only see them about 4 times per year due to distance, so not sure if this is quite as popular ongoing. They do enjoy ACTIVE play in Virginia as much as possible. Will check in with them again, but they are in middle of a house remodel, so not good timing. Grandma loved the game as it can be played as desired. No judgement, could tell kids, "no wrong answers since it is what WE SEE." They did not find this off putting, helped to tone down the potential fussing.
Thanks for your follow up and great product.
A fun and relaxing game for the whole family. We all enjoyed it from 6 to 60!
Shared one box with family. Kept second set for games with friends.
I live in an independent living/assisted living retirement facility. Loss of mental acuity is a serious concern of residents. A group of us have developed a version of your game that can be played in about an hour by 3 to 6 players at a time. The hour requirement is due to the facility’s activity schedule. We have noticed definite improvement in memory, verbal skill and confidence from players. This includes stroke, early dementia and “normal for age” cognitive function. Our ages range from 72 to 93. The first version was so popular that I ordered the Nature Edition which has given us new challenges. Each week another resident or two asks about playing it. As long as their vision is good, they seem to really enjoy our Willow Park OuiSi version.
kids wanted a game they could win! Otherwise it was really fun.
It was a gift. I haven’t played it. But I love the concept.
IT's not really a game.
I purchased this for my child's classroom at the teacher's request. The teacher said that it has been a huge hit, and the kids love it so much more than she expected!
Got this as a gift for another family. They love the outdoors and nature. This has been a fun game for a wide variety of ages.
I bought the nature edition for my grandsons and family, and the boys love it, especially the four-year-old.
Great game for bright children. Independently decide the sets to find. Creative fun for all
We had. So many guests it was hard to get my any in evolved. I can see jit being better with a smaller group
We like it thank you and hope to play game with grandkids
We have mainly played our own version to accommodate a five year old. We tried competitive once and found it difficult to corral a judge. We’ll keep at it. Concept is good. It encourages conversation as we look at comparisons and similarities.
