Vertellis in two sentences
Vertellis is a question-card game that looks to bring friends, family, and colleagues closer together in a playful manner. Easy, fun, and thoughtful is Vertellis.
How does Vertellis affect the participants?
Ask great questions, listen, and elaborate. “Wow, tell us more!” It may sound simple, but in today’s hectic and connected world it is essential we take the time to do this. People who decide to take the time to play Vertellis will find they connect with their friends in a deeper way, bringing them even closer.
The game and the story
As of right now, Vertellis has launched the Holiday edition in English
This edition of the game has been developed to allow American families and friends to have more meaningful conversations with each other during holiday dinners, especially around Thanksgiving and Christmas. When we get distracted by seasonal decorations, food, and sports on TV, we tend to forget that the holidays are meant to bring families together. It is only after the holidays are finished that we wish we had spent more time with one another. This is why Vertellis has become such an important aspect of the holiday season in the Netherlands.
This exciting new game is perfect not just for the holiday season, but also for friends, families, and colleagues to play during birthdays, vacations, and other family gatherings. Together, you can explore the memorable moments of the past year and share your hopes and dreams for the upcoming year. By listening and paying attention to each other and asking elaborative questions (“Oh? Tell us more!”), memorable moments will be created.
The is just the beginning, and we look forward allowing even more people to connect with our future initiatives – so check back regularly!
The story behind the Vertellis Relationship Edition
Communication has been identified as the number 1 most important aspect of a strong relationship.
It may sound simple – a good conversation – but in today’s hustle-and-bustle world, with technological distractions in our front pocket, having quality conversations is proving to be more difficult than we think.
Vertellis believes that’s a shame, and want to give Cupid a helping hand!
With our newest addition, we want to stimulate your communication with the one you are most intimate with. In a playful way, you will discuss fun and challenging subjects, such as dreams and finances, which are an essential part of a relationship and life itself!
How it’s made
Mindfulness, communication, and connection come together in a compact and pleasant design. Many games come in oversized boxes, but we’ve made a point of providing you with an easily transportable, aesthetically pleasing game that will have a real impact around the table.
A little fact
The very first game was made with handwritten cards. After a tremendously positive response from friends and family, we decided to mass produce the game and make it available for purchase online. Within just a few months we sold over 25,000 units in the Netherlands alone. Now, it is time to make Vertellis available in America.
All of the materials used to make Vertellis are responsibly sourced.
Vertellis is a Dutch brand founded by three friends: Bart, Liz, and Lars who are in their late twenties. Willem has joined the US team and is in his early thirties (but a twenty-something at heart!) All four share a passion for continuous personal development. This passion and their professional experiences in team management, consultancy, and psychology are woven into Vertellis. Every question has been carefully formulated and tested to ensure it brings about the right emotions and thoughts – leading to meaningful conversations.
About the founders
Vertellis is a brand founded by three friends: Bart, Liz, and Lars who are in their late twenties. Willem, who has joined the US team, is in his early thirties (but a twenty-something at heart!)
We don’t just have a mission; we have a plan that is the primary driving force behind all our decisions. Our mission is to improve solidarity among families and friends by stimulating meaningful conversations in our fast-paced world.
The way we work!
At Vertellis we work a little different than “normal”. We work while we travel, which means work and fun are always connected. To use a modern term, we can be described as “digital nomads”. However, the biggest difference between us and typical digital nomads is that we don’t work to maintain a lifestyle; rather, we created a lifestyle that brings out the best in us and, thus, Vertellis. Working in different locations simultaneously allows us to be more creative, find new angles to life’s questions, and enjoy life.
Social responsibility and a personal approach to customer service are important aspects of what we want Vertellis to represent.
Technology makes all this possible – and we’re extremely grateful for this – but sometimes you need to disconnect from the world and connect with your loved ones. For those moments, there’s Vertellis.
