Product Description

As you might guess from the cheery colors and the touching subtitle on the box, this game is all about building families – or "FamilYs," rather, with the "Y" being a big huggy uncle who wants to embrace you because he hasn't seen you in so long. My, how you've grown! Can you really be in college now? Oh, and you've already served time in prison? That must have been interesting...

Your goal in Familys is to complete a nine character family of four grandparents, two parents and three children; while two of the grandparents must have white outfits, all of the other family members must be of the same color.

After players receive their initial hand of 11 cards, they lay down their largest potential family on the table. On a turn, you draw a card and either add it to your family tree or else try to use the letter, number and shape on the card to create combinations with the other cards in your hand. Do so, and you can discard those cards and draw replacements (minus one) from the deck. Filter fast and found your family first!
