Happy Thompson Families

The new special edition Happy Families game for people named Thompson!

Updated, redesigned, redrawn and with very special personal touches, this delightful Thompson version of the classic game is a sure-fire hit for Thompsons.

Traditionally, Happy Families has been played with cards grouped by professions ("Mr. Cod the Fishmonger", "Mr. Meds the Doctor" etc etc).

Not any more!



The new version is all about the family. Cards are grouped by family events and stages of family life. So there are groups of cards on themes covering typical family events like Christmas, Easter, even family car journeys. Scenarios like these open a rich seam of family comedy and satire. (You know what I mean there!). The cards captures these moments with a wholesome mixture of glee and joy that Thompson families will undoubtedly relate to!

Still other groups of cards are themed with stages of family life. So there are groups like "Thompson Family with Toddler", "Thompson Family with Teenager" and as you can probably imagine, another layer of fabulous family comedy opens up in these illustrations.

The cards  are beautifully drawn and bulging with family joy and good humour. As an added bonus, many of the cards are decorated with snippets of information about the name Thompson, its origins, history, variants and lots more. So on several levels, this is something that every games-playing Thompson will find hugely entertaining and enjoyable.

Here's a fun little video animation that shows the cards:


Finally, accompanying the game is a sheet of folded gift wrap. The gift wrap has the word 'Thompson' all over it. So if you plan to give the game to a Thompson, you can use the free wrap to package your gift in a way that appealing, attractive and wonderfully appropriate!
