Side Project : Games with Gran

I created a quick side project - Games with Gran

Simple games like Tic Tac Toe & Connect 4 with built in video conferencing to help keep your family in touch during COVID

https://www.gameswithgran.com/

The idea was born in Covid Lockdowns to try and help my Grandparents keep in touch with my young kids using simple games.

As with all the best side projects I’ve given ZERO thought in how to market this or monitize this (though thats not a priority to be fair, should be very modest cost to run).

Hopefully some of you may find it useful.

Any ideas especially on getting the word out?

    Just added a quick feature - blur/hide your own face - https://www.gameswithgran.com/images/blur-local-video.gif

    Some children (esp some with additional needs) find it very distracting to see their own face in a video chat - so one quick update later you can dim then turn it off without stopping the other person seeing you.
