    This game was so brilliant! I set up my phone to video the whole thing because it worked out how I had hoped it would. My parents would answer the question, but then tell at least one or two stories, many of which I hadn’t heard! I hope to make this a tradition every time the whole family gets together.

    Also, the geniuses behind this designed it to be played without paper, pencils, or fun pieces that toddlers want to steal and lose. We played with 7 kids under six around and we lost no pieces. Also, since the only ones holding the cards were grandma and grandpa, there were no lost cards either. Thanks for a new, valuable family tradition.

    Had 4 generations (about 25 people) sitting in a circle this Christmas Eve playing this game. Perhaps better than just trying to get the right answer is that so many great stories and details are shared that no one else knew about my grandparents!

    Played this at Christmas and learned new things about my parents, we had a lot of fun. I plan on bringing it to my in laws next time we visit.

    WONDERFUL BUY. This game is great for family gatherings! My In laws is are avid genealogists who are always writing books on their ancestors. The crazy thing is that they have never written books about themselves! Consequently many of us do not know about their past lives. . During the Christmas family gathering I put my in laws at the front of the room and we started playing Pando. It was SO fun and SO informative! I found out so many things I didn’t know about my In laws. We ALL learned something that night and shared a few laughs as well. The grandkids were also having fun and learning things about their grand parents they never knew. At the end of the game (we only played about 30 min and then had to move on) my family wanted to know when we could play again. Talk about a GREAT game!!
    P.S.- I am thinking of recording my in laws responses using my iPhone and then typing them up to share with everyone. Don’t let these stories fade into the past!

    We played it at Christmas this year with my mother in law. She loved the chance to be focused on and share memories. 4 siblings played as family groups with spouses and kids – roughly 4-5 per group so it was a large crowd packed into a living room. The large crowd made it a little hard to focus by end as everyone started calling out etc – next time I think I would give each family group a paddle to raise and have them sit closer together in groups. Some questions were easy, a few nobody got and a couple only the in laws knew, showing that they paid attention to the stories more! I also would suggest holding it for a quieter time than Christmas – we were pretty raucous crowd doing lots of things and I only got everyone organized to play by being the game dictator and enlisting my sisters in law by telling them the game – after that it sells itself to those who know the older generation would love to pass on the stories and who want the kids to hear…..Seems like a game to keep on table all year for the right moments, especially as you can play fairly fast. I’d suggest playing after family dinners here and there…..

    This game was such a delight to play with my family! I bought it for Christmas for both my parents and my fiancé’s parents. It was so easy to play and so much fun! I was able to learn about my future family as well as learn more about my own parents and their story. So grateful for this fun game!!

    We played Pando at my father’s 82nd birthday dinner. We let him ask all the questions and had a blast. The grandchildren were engaged as well as the adults. It was so much fun that we played again at a larger family gathering after Christmas with the children and grandchildren of my mother’s siblings. The oldest generation took turns asking the questions and it was interesting seeing which family groups knew about their Aunts and Uncles as well as their parents/Grandparents. There was some fierce competition among some of the family members! My cousin said it was the perfect game, fun with very little to no setup or cleanup. Everyone had fun and felt like they had a great time with the extended family. We look forward to playing again soon.

    Played Pando on Christmas Day and it was a hit! My parents, ages 78 & 82 were the elders, and my sister and I with our husbands were the progeny. We heard stories we had never heard before, particularly from my dad about his teen and young adult years. We all look forward to playing again, and my adult kids want a chance to play with us too. Pando asks the questions I never knew to ask!

    We had played Pando twice during Christmas events; once with my immediate family and once with my extended family. It was a hit both times. Really it was the only game we played. It was a game that got people who don’t play games involved; it thoroughly engaged our older generations. They got to tell their stories while the younger generations listened. It was amazing hearing stories that we may not have ever thought to ask about. Pando is like a puzzle game, each turn added the picture of our family’s history.

    While playing Pando, I had discovered several things that were very eye opening and gave me a better understanding of my family’s history. One thing that was revealed was about how my mother and my father met. After a couple of hours, I had learned so much more about my mother, my grandfather, grandmother, and my aunt and uncle. Every card helped us to learn about when our elders were young, what they did, and what their world was like.

    Pando is a simple game, but its depth is great. Pando unveils my family history that may have gone unspoken if we hadn’t played. This game is going to be a great addition to future family gatherings! I’m really glad that I had backed this project on Kickstarter because it is probably the most meaningful game out there today.

    OBSESSED!! Our family played it in so many ways. We busted out the cards during meals when we were all together, we played sitting around the living room, and we used it for entertainment in the car. We also played when old family friends came over. The memories that were shared and the bonding that took place were priceless. It was a gift to our whole crew!
