The Six-Word Memoir Game: Best Gift Idea Ever

Monday, September 26th, 2011

By Larry Smith

The Six-Word Memoir Game is here! Since we launched the Six-Word Memoir project in 2006, time and again people have suggested we make a game. Now we’re pleased to announce that the Six-Word Memoir game will be in stores soon courtesy of University Games, the shop behind games such as Murder Mystery Party, 20 Questions, and Worst-Case Scenario. University is SMITH Magazine’s kind of place: an independently owned company that’s found huge success by creating games that are smart, fun, and addictive. Our game is a simple format that requires little more than a pack of cards, a pencil, and a group of friends. We suspect Six Words will spur the same playful passion in game form as it does online, in books, and at live events. Order it from Amazon or Toys R Us.

Owner Bob Moog believes the best games should be simple, thought-provoking, allow for lots of interaction for players between turns so no one gets bored, and be able to be enjoyed whether you’re 8 or 80. Importantly, as he told a San Francisco Chronicle reporter a few years ago, “We don’t put games out where there’s one winner and the rest are losers. Life is about process. Unfortunately, I know so many people where the winning and losing is what it’s about.”

    Another issue is that video games are usually serious in nature with the major focus on learning rather than amusement. Although, it has an entertainment element to keep your young ones engaged, each and every game is usually designed to develop a specific skill set or curriculum, such as math or scientific disciplines. Thanks for your publication.
