How many cards?

35 cards: 7 families of 5 members

Celebrate diversity through play!

When Clara noticed that the families depicted in her son's games didn't look anything like their family, she decided to do something about it.

She illustrated Merry Families, a fun take on an old French classic, showing kids some of the many constellations of rainbow families: queer, multicultural, single-parent, families without kids, and family members of every ability. Some families have cats and dogs too!

This representation helps children of queer parents see other families just like theirs. And all children can develop empathy and understanding of other identities that have been largely underrepresented in games. Let's play!

  • How to play?

    The goal of this game is to gather as many sets of families as possible.

About the Artist

A French illustrator based in Berlin, Clara Gilod works mostly on children books and editorial illustrations.

She finds inspiration in nature and the streets and people of Berlin. Her work is feminist, queer and aims to capture various points of view from her surrounding world.

In her illustrations, Clara depicts a diverse and non-conformist society, one that is too often forgotten in children's books and games.
