Reviews and Endorsements

"From the first roll of the dice... we were honestly hooked!"

"Knowing and understanding the freedoms guaranteed by our United States Constitution are essential to the preservation of our republic. 'Constitution Quest' is a game for all times. It is an easy-to-play, exciting adventure into one of our most precious national treasures. This game is a winner!"  Robert W. Sweet, Jr., Former Reagan White House Domestic Policy Staff

"...Constitution Quest stands out because it is fun and educational... My teen-aged daughter just finished studying American Government last semester, and she did not enjoy it one iota. But she enjoyed the game a lot, and whenever she missed a question, I was delighted to see her pull out the constitution to check the answer. She showed more interest in the Constitution playing this game than she had the entire semester! The Old Schoolhouse Magazine: Constitution Quest Review
Game review by Heather Jackowitz, Senior Product Reviewer 

"The Constitution Quest is a fun way for adults and families to learn important facts about the Constitution, our form of limited government, and the unalienable rights we enjoy as citizens. My family plays it regularly and my children have learned more by playing it than by all of my lectures and writings. It is a double blessing to enjoy family time and engage the children on a subject so vital to their future happiness. Two thumbs way, way up!?

Meet Pam Barret:

Pam Barret

"Pam Barret is a flag-waving grandma with a passion for literacy. She earned her teaching credential in 1977 and has since been named The National Right to Read Foundation Teacher of the Year (1998) and has testified before the Congressional Committee on Education and the Workforce (2000). Pam has networked with parents, grandparents and teachers from all over the country to promote literacy. Her belief that all children can learn, along with her motto that "Readers become leaders!" has become the driving force behind her passion.

Because Pam wanted to impact the lives of children beyond her classroom or school in the Murrieta Valley Unified School District, she became an instructional coach; training teachers in the Hemet Unified School District, then worked as an instructional consultant for the Riverside County Office of Education and for the Culver City Unified School District. She also served in an advisory capacity for several educational products. 

She has been married to David Barret since 1978. They are the parents of 5 adult children and relish any opportunity to chase their 7 grandchildren around their backyard in Temecula, California."

 

About Us - The Barret Family:

"Our family began creating The Constitution Quest GameŽ in July, 2010 to increase Constitutional Literacy in America. We, the People, need to read the Constitution and know what it says, in order to ensure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our children. We wanted to dismiss the notion that the U.S. Constitution is a dusty, old document that is no longer relevant. It is, in fact, urgently and palpably relevant. Many would also be surprised to find that the genius of the Constitution is remarkably accessible to the average person, so we resolved to provide a fun, easy and effective way to learn it.

No matter what age, people love games, so it made sense to develop a game that was engaging, entertaining and educational. As a family of teachers with extensive experience creating curriculum, activities and games to help engage students in order to maximize student achievement, we knew we could apply those same research-based strategies to teach people the basic content of the U.S. Constitution. Since people learn 95% of what they teach to someone else, we carefully designed all 5 decks of cards containing Constitutional content that players read aloud top each other in an un-intimidating, test-taking format. We integrated the element of chance in several ways that heighten the excitement while reinforcing the material. this keeps it fun for everyone, so you don't have to be a Constitutional expert to play or win. The idea is to learn as you play.

In designing the game, we felt it was important to make a functional and beautiful piece of art. As players move along the rich red, marble white, deep blue and gold path, they are drawn into a sense of the richness of our country's most important document: the Constitution. The board itself is designed to make abstract concepts in the Constitution, such as the branches of government, or the impact of violating the Constitution, concrete and easy to grasp. We also wanted to be aware of the Constitutional Signers who sacrificed so much to ensure that "We the People" have the power. For that reason, players choose a signer to be their game piece and one of our 5 decks is called "Facts and Founders."

It is our belief that unless Americans improve their Constitutional IQ, we could be in danger of losing our republic as we know it. In the words of President Ronald Reagan, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream."

However, we can pass on to our children and grandchildren the love for and knowledge of the U.S. Constitution. We believe the Constitution Quest GameŽ will help the Constitution come to life in a vibrant way for our neighbors and for their children and grandchildren, preserving our republic by elevating Constitutional Literacy."
