Love and Logic: Back to the Future

We watched Back to the Future on my birthday because… well, do I really need a reason?

The plot gave me an idea for a simple game: Child travels back in time and she has to convince Mom and Daddy to make the right decisions so that she can be born.  In the movie, Marty has to convince his mom and dad to get together before he disappears from the family photo.  So, I wrote down Child’s name (3 letters, though your child’s name may be longer) and made the 5 cards below.  The aim was to try and get the card with the date of Child’s birth before all of the letters in her name got erased.
