Come Closer Together

What happens when we discover, reveal and share?  What becomes of us when we listen, learn and grow a new understanding? We change.  We open up to new places within. 

Families and friends who play Keep It Real together frequently experience sudden bursts of energy, appreciation, compassion, and love, and grow new understandings. We gain the courage to speak our truth & listen with open minds and hearts.

Friend & Family Testimonials

“I fell in love with KEEP IT REAL GAME the very first time I played it. As an adult, it helped me talk about some issues in my life that I didn’t even want to think about. As a parent, it helped me discuss subjects that I would normally be embarrassed to do with my daughter, as well as my teenage nieces and nephews. This game helps you face the person in the mirror, and also makes a way to talk about difficult issues. I recommended the KEEP IT REAL GAME to all my friends and family members, including my church family. ”

~ Maria J. Gaston, Exec. Producer/Hostess of Jarvelle Show

“My two teenage children and I enjoyed playing Keep It Real. The game opened up a dialogue that had been missing between us. We learned things about each other and how we think about situations that affect us everyday. The props in the game were fun because it brought out the humorous side of our personalities. It was fun to laugh at ourselves while stimulating our thoughts about the world we live in. I recommend Keep It Real to be played by families and friends. The game brought my family closer in ways which we often talk about in our travels.”

~ Vincent Smythe, Environmental Artist and Health Insurance Specialist

“There has never been a board game like this … EVER!!! We have seen and played the games that challenge our memory, our intellect, our management skills, even our physical dexterity. But KEEP IT REAL challenges us in ways that would do far more than entertain or help to pass the time. It will stay with us in potentially life altering ways in rebuilding our perceptions of others and ourselves, while having us run a fun filled spectrum of emotions in the process. No one has ever enjoyed themselves or explored themselves this much with a board game before!”

~ Gerard Brown, Playwright/Screenwriter/Teacher

“Playing Keep It Real was a blast. It is amazing that a game that is so much fun also gets people tuned in to themselves, helps them to learn who they are and to respect diversity in others, and to connect with the other players. The Keep It Real game which focuses on self-discovery through thought provoking and stimulating questions, also helps people to acknowledge alternatives in life, to embrace the unpredictable, and teaches not to limit yourself with brittle perceptions. This game opens the heart, mind and imagination, and gets people talking and thinking about life in so many dimensions. It is awesome!”

~ Mangy-Nkoli, filmmaker – ‘Smoking Cessation’

"The Keep it Real game allowed me to search deeper within myself to find meaning in many of the things that I do. The game creatively asks the questions that most people are too intimidated to ask, boldly unmasks truths that desperately need to be revealed, and enlightens the mind. The Keep it Real game harbors a magic that changes people… and will one day change the world."

~ Whitney “Luvly Brown” Lawrence

"A safe space…at last…to finally discover things about yourself you always wanted to know, to say things you have always wanted to say, and to be who you really are! Keep It Real is a game where we discover, uncover, reveal and share. We listen, learn and grow new understandings. We open up to new places within, find answers, gain awareness, unstick ourselves and let go of old stuff. Thank you for this game."
