From apps to board games: the story of the YAQUA Family.

Our goal is to help people rediscover just how much fun they can have playing board games with family or friends, either online or IRL :)

THE FAUCONS : Father & Daughter

Pierre, the father of the Faucon family, initially set up Y A QU A to design, edit and produce games for smartphones.

Y A QU A is a family business, and all the concepts for new games are tested and developed by the family themselves.

Y A QU A has already produced some ten digital letter-based games and quiz games that are all 100% original and available on the AppStore and Google Play.

Every day, an average of 20,000 players across the globe spend around 15 minutes playing one of Y A QU A’s games.

Published at the start of 2021, the CRACK LIST app was an instant hit in both France and the USA. It has even been named Apple’s Game of The Week.

At Y A QU A, Charlotte, daughter no. 2, AKA Miss Resourceful, edits and develops the games.

THE CRACK LIST card game

- Hey Dad, why don’t you create an Uno-style game based on your CRACK LIST app?
- Yeah, Dad, a Categories card game would be so cool!

The whole family got involved.
We spent our summer playing the game as a family over and over again until we’d nailed down the basic rules.

A first prototype was then launched and tested by some thirty players of all ages.
We finalized the rules based on our testers’ feedback, and then launched our first production run.

CRACK LIST is a game that's designed to be entertaining and fun. It’s already brought so much joy to our lives, along with laughing fits, heated debates and outlandish attempts to bluff... all of which we guarantee you’ll experience, too!

CRACK LIST has already brought over 1 million players together, so what are you waiting for ? Join us to rediscover just how much fun playing board games can be !
