Impress your demanding Russian in-laws in this cute, weird game


Surviving family dinners can feel like a gauntlet at the best of times, especially when it's your potential in-laws. Za Vas (To You) makes a game out of impressing your date's demanding Russian family by managing a series of simple gestures.

The small game, created by Brittney Oberfeld, Kimberly Karanya and Lee Tran for a Dames Making Games jam last October, is not complicated to play; it's the aesthetics that are charming, from the Russian music to the expectant relatives that resemble Matryoshka dolls. I personally wouldn't know whether Russian in-laws are really so overwhelming or hard to please, but if you have first-hand experience you're sure to appreciate this.

Thanks to wonderful discovery site Forest Ambassador for spotlighting this one!
