We are a family operation in Aurora, Ontario. We are also a community, whereby anyone (you) can contribute new rules and game variations to help build and expand the community.
The original game idea was formulated around 2004 and although several prototypes were created, it was left to hide in a closet for over ten years. Finally we decided it was time to expose the game to the world.
The Connections Card Game is created in Richmond Hill and Aurora, Ontario, making it 100% Canadian.The boxes are handmade in Richmond Hill, the cards are printed and cut there as well. The game is manually assembled and checked by hand in Aurora.
We felt it was time for a different kind of word game, one that connects people, not just words. We find that as the game develops, interpersonal communications increase. This creates interesting dynamics between players.We also strived to make a 100% Canadian, locally-sourced game. It costs a bit more but we support local businesses.
There are many ways to play. Each group is different and the rules can adapt to family dynamics and styles. We encourage you to post your own rules for others to check out.
Honouring our sesquicentennial, the new Canada 150 limited edition game has 150 cards with 600 bilingual words. The words are all related to Canada. They can be used as an expansion set to the original edition.
