Great multi-generational game, with great flexibility to mold the 'rules' to the participants. I have played with siblings, kids/cousins and grandkids, with as much enjoyment at each level.
The images, plus origins are much more accessible than the original deck- we think!
My mom turned me and my 7 year old son onto this. We absolutely love it! Gets both of our imaginations going! The QR codes are a super cool feature. 10/10 would recommend!

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)
We love Oisi. The Getty version is our second one. We've been playing Ouisinoes with it regularly, and we love being able to see the source image on the back of the card and find more information on the Getty site. Ousi Original, perhaps because it was our first one, is still my favorite - the delightful variety and mystery of the images is unparalleled
We have three different OuiSi decks, the Getty's the latest purchase. We regularly mix the cards and play a story telling games as each person gets an opportunity to add a card to another already played and continue creating a story. It is great fun and encourages use of imagination.
We like the artwork and finding the details. This game is so relaxing and my teen enjoys playing it with me.
Love using this in my classroom!!
The students enjoy this as much as the other Quisi games. They love that you put the complete photo on the back so they can see the picture in context. Last week, my youngest (8) one on one student chose that as his game of choice. In one session we just explored the photos and tried to figure out what we were looking at. Then we started sorting them out. He was discovering some interesting categories. He had made a recent trip to California and apparently visited an art museum, so he loves to see the photos. Thanks again for putting your hearts and souls into these games. They are amazing!

The art is great
The OuiSi: Getty edition arrived in perfect condition. I have to admit that I was slightly disappointed with the images. It seems a majority of the images are rather neutral in color and tone, and very subtle. I prefer the bright colors of the first two editions. However, the educational aspect of the Getty edition, I’m sure, will make up for the lack of as much vivid colors of sets 1 and 2.
Not disappointed that I made the purchase. It will be interesting to see how the 3 editions work (or play) together.
The whole family loved the original OuiSi and OuiSi x Getty is perfect for all ages. Toddler thru grandparents love it.
As an artist this is my favorite thing to gift others. I bought all the sets for myself, and have given quite a number to friends and family. To date, my favorite is the Nature set.
I hope you keep building on your success. I would like to see one with portions of paintings, and another one with body parts.
OuiSi x Getty is the second OuiSi game I’ve bought and it’s fabulous!
The photos are striking and colorful and there are so many ways to play this game. I like to just look through the cards, too.
We have the other version and played it frequently with our granddaughter during the pandemic. I love that you can use it with almost any population. I've recommended it to my daughter-in-law who works with an adult intellectually limited agency and to our nearby assisted living community. We've used the new edition on family game nights and enjoyed it.
The perfect mindfulness activity for families.
My 4-year-old grandchild loves these cards. We play a simple match game where we put one card beside another and ask, “why?” Then we talk about color, shape, and other factors in the pictures. The codes on the back help us figure out what’s represented when we get curious. OuiSi inspires discernment, art appreciation, discussion skills and is just plain fun.
I polled the children, ages 8 and 12, and asked them what they liked about the game. They liked the additional information available with the QR codes but didn't like that the backs of the cards didn't have the same design. The 12 year old liked their original OuiSi best because nobody knew what cards she was holding. I was so surprised and overjoyed to learn that she and her brother had gotten the original set as a Christmas gift and already knew how to play.
Her almost 9 year old brother was delighted that he had discovered the full images on the backs of the cards. As we played, both siblings explained their card choices so I followed suit and explained mine, too.
Oddly enough, I had difficulty making connections, even with the wide variety of images. To me, there were overarching themes in the first two sets. With the Getty Images set, the many varieties of art forms (paintings, sculptures, artifacts) threw me at first. Once I settled in and played solo games after the kids left, I was able to see more connections and find my groove, a slightly different groove from the other sets. The connections seemed more subtle and required more exploration and imagination to find.
In full disclosure, my mind has been preoccupied and working overtime to redesign my first large scale painting (38" x 48') sketch into 6 equally sized paintings that would each contain interesting focal elements to produce 6 stand alone paintings people would like to bid on for the first fundraiser for our first Makers space. But, bonus! Even though I was challenged playing OuiSi, I had more and better ideas to edit my sketch. I've been a photographer for 50 years and a painter for three years. The imposter syndrome is strong in this one. Ha, ha, ha!
In conclusion, the Getty Images set is another winner. Once again the cards are sturdy and the images are beautifully printed. I like to see the big picture and found the complete images on the backs of the cards helpful in providing context and closure.
Thank you for continuing to expand connections across the world.
Fun games and beautiful photos!
Not gonna lie - I actually dont use these to play a game. I am an artist - so I have been using them for art inspirations - the layouts and or colors are fantastic! and I have THREE SETS
Ouisi is well made and easy to use for family and friends who want to find visual connections.
I got the first two OuiSi games as a Christmas present and loved them so much I got myself the museum edition when that came out. Our family plays our own version of the game where each player has 12 cards and we choose from those cards to match a card in the center. Once you play your card you take another card from the pile so you always have 12. Sometimes it's a stretch to find a match and other players will help each other out and sometimes it's super easy. I also enjoy using the images as drawing prompts in my sketch book.
All three generations of us love every version of this game, including the latest, with Getty Museum photos. It is great to have the full image on the back of each card along with a qr code for more info about the art. Great exposure to fine art and creative thinking make this an enjoyable family game.
I noticed the original Ouisi set in a post on social media. I am a quilter and felt that the images I saw could be used for color story and texture explorations. I put the set on my Christmas list and my artist daughter listened. She also gave me the Nature set and I just purchased the Getty set.
I shared them with my other quilting friends and they found the cards very interesting.
I love that there are QR codes for the Nature and Getty sets so I can learn more about the images.
Thank you for wonderful inspiration!
I have yet to play games with these cards - they are beautiful images and I can think of quite a number of explorations I could use these for! They are a great addition to my two other Ouisi sets.
I am an art teacher, these cards are an amazing way to demonstrate the elements of art and to inspire young artists!
I've bought each set of ouisi for my family members who enjoy it very much. The game has many options and the photos are spectacular.
We own all three versions and my children and grandchildren (ages 6, 8, 11) love to just play the basic game and talk about the images, colors, patterns, and connections we see. It's amazing how often we want to scan the barcodes to learn more about a particular card.
I love the glimpses at art through this set of Ouisi! As always, quality product and excellent service. My favorite feature is the QR code on each card that you can find out the whole piece of art and more about it. We spend as much time looking at those as playing a game.
Used with my honors creativity class on numerous occasions to kickstart conversations and inspire action.
I have given the sets I have purchased as gifts. Have not used them myself.
This deck is as beautiful as the others! The three sets together make for fascinating conversations and lovely arrays.
I have all three sets of OuiSi. My family enjoyed the original version and OuiSi Nature over the holidays. It was fun to find connections and to use the Q codes to get more information about some of the images. I’m really looking forward to playing the Getty Museum set, but I’m I’m saving it for our next family get-together.
We enjoyed our first game very much and look forward to more
My granddaughter and great granddaughter have only been together one time to play. It was a short game, but we all did really enjoy it. My great granddaughter has played the game I got for son and his family a couple of times and was excited to learn I had gotten the game, but a bit different. I think we will be trying to set up game days at least once a month.
Love the variety of pictures and the links to the corresponding information.
Got the original and nature versions for our granddaughters (6yo and 9yo) for Christmas. A big hit! 6 loves the games and enjoys explaining her reasoning for grouping cards together. We now have the Getty Museum version, too. Looking forward to playing with them soon.
I am the proud owner of all 3 of the beautiful OuiSi Sets!!! Each one of the gorgeously photographed & so much fun to play!!! Thank You OuiSi~ I look forward to future sets to add to my collection!!!!
I have all the versions of OuiSi. It is a wonderful creative game.
Beautiful images! Highly recommend.
I own all 3 versions and I love them. The newest one, Getty edition, is such a great introduction to art and now that I don't live in CA anymore, it is also a great revisit to a museum I visited multiple times.
I love the photos, i just hoped to connect with more ideas and a community that works with them. It would be helpful to see youtube videos on the many ways they get used. So the product is beautiful. just need more guidance and inspiration to use it with elementsry school kids
Actually have not yet “played” it.
I love the notion though!
And the quality of the cards! Love it!
Purchased several as gifts!
Waiting to try it w/my grandchildren. Haven't been to visit them yet.
It’s brilliant! I’m a career professional artist and a grandmother of a 9 and 6 year old. I’m not a tech person, but I personally loved the access to the paintings in the museum. I think you have to identify your audience. My grandkids would lose interest quickly at their age, but maybe focus on intelligent “elders” who are craving the interaction and the access to a docent at a great museum. I purchased your first? product and the kids enjoyed and engaged with it, which I loved. Unfortunately, they lost interest-not because of your product, but because unfortunately they are acclimated to more internet interaction- or sports. I love what you’re doing, maybe include focusing on seniors who still crave cultural opportunities and exposure to the arts that could be an elevated addition to card games.
I’m still working every day, so I may not be the best resource, but I really love what you’re doing. Congratulations on making our beautiful world more accessible and connected- literally. Bravo!!! Marjorie
Love the many different ways tonuse
My second purchase. Really great product. Looking forward to playing with my grandson in the future.
Pleasing shapes. Stimulating colors. Entertaining game choices.
I’m a retired art teacher and love photography. I’m just a playful amateur myself, but when I got the OuiSi Nature and then the Getty Museum Ouisi sets, I can’t tell you how much I love looking at the gorgeous photos! I enjoy playing all kinds of solitaire with them or inviting friends and family over for lively, imaginative games. The ability to scan the codes and get educated on each interesting piece is priceless! ❤️
I have several more to share of my students. I will email them to you all.
I love the game because there are so many ways to play it. I also just enjoy learning about the photos and where they were taken. The fact that you can learn about the photographer and interesting things about the photo while you are playing a game, really adds to my enjoyment. I consider that I am intellectually curious and this game is a must for someone with that type of interest.
These are amazing and so versatile. I use them with my family and at work in my Art classroom. I truly love these and the kids do too!
This is 2nd time I gifted to 2 families- they responded that the kids are constantly pulling them out; Great that all ages, levels & different personalities can play-fascinating what they come up with. One grand daughter is researching the QR codes for the Getty pieces & not balking on “learning”.
This game is beautiful. The cards are amazing! I love just looking through them and then searching the Getty site for the piece of art by using the QR codes on the back. Worth every penny!
Brilliant, engaging, great for diverse audiences. Would highly recommend to everyone.
The new pictures from Getty are outstanding! We love them. So unusual. Sized to fit the first two series - wonderful!
We love and have gifted the original version, but were intrigued by this version. Once again, we were not disappointed. Our family loves the huge variety of ways to play and enjoy these cards. My husband and kid love to use them to make up stories. I find it relaxing and meditative to sit alone and lay them out using my own categories of connections. We all do this together sometimes, and that is a lovely collaborative experience, different every time. We have also done scavenger hunts and some of the other suggestions, all fun.
I loved that you used an art museum this time! I teach art.
Such a creative and thoughtful way to connect generations!
I enjoyed the first 2 games I purchased at Christmas and when I saw a new one, I jumped on it! The game is easy to play in a variety of ways: shapes, colors, tell a story, etc. You can play it with almost any age and ability of individuals. It is creative and fun! I would recommend this game to anyone.
OuiSi is a lot of fun. It helps the mind relax while working it.
This is my third set of OuiSi cards I've gotten, so I think it's safe to say I like them :) Beautiful photos and so many possibilities
This is my second set of Ouisi—I also have the nature set as well. I purchased this to expand my nieces introduction to art—she loves it. I took it out with friends after dinner and the adults enjoyed it as well—the QR codes and additional information led us to hours of engaging conversation. I really can’t say enough about this engaging activity—there are so many ways to use/learn with Ouisi! The quality and selection of images is excellent. I look forward to more variations of this in the future!
This is the 3rd set of OuiSi I have purchased. My grandkids love to look at the photos and make connections! Love the open ended uses/ ways to play.
I have all three Ouisi games. We would love to see o set with bold bright colors - easier for the elderly and younger children to play - perhaps the next one?
I bought several sets as Christmas gifts for the families of my grandchildren. When the Getty version was released, I bought one for myself. I haven’t actually played the game with anyone, but I enjoy looking at the pictures and using the bar code to learn more about the painting or the Nature cards. It’s a bit like a leisurely stroll through the Getty Museum.
I love the concept of the game, especially for my young ones still developing their verbal skills.
I am a professional tarot reader and diviner. I have all three of the Ouisi decks and use them in my divination practice. They are absolutely terrific for use in intuitive reading and I love them. They are one of my favorite tools.
I have purchased all three editions of OuiSi and absolutely love each! The images are stunning and loved by all ages!
I love these games SO MUCH! This version just arrived and I had to open it immediately. I love the colors, the educational value (using the QR codes), the family time that the game elicits and the visual beauty on each card. I can just look through the cards for hours and never be bored. I highly recommend Ouisi Nature and Getty Museum for the additional QR I do that is provided. Original Ouisi is equally as visually stunning but lacks the connectivity of the Internet. Still fun, entertaining, and gorgeous.
I have all 3! Highly recommend!!
