Growing up with my grandmother, in the deep south, she would always have a quick witted idiom for every situation. I became just like her always having a one liner on the tip of my tongue. 

But the game Mama SAID it all started with one social media post in 2016... 

As me and my friends went back and forth laughing at our favorite phrases all night, I realized how much we had in common. I grew up with all but two of the phrases. They didn't make it in the game but because some households had their own specific sayings, there are blank cards included in the game just so you can add your own.

Over the years, I would write down phrases as I recalled them not knowing exactly what I was going to do with them. During the 2020 global pandemic shutdown I had more time to think than I ever had; thus, Mama SAID was born. 

Mama SAID is my way of preserving the culture that is familiar to me. Sadly, my grandmother passed away in 2021 so having some of her sayings preserved is a constant reminder of her. 

I can't wait for you to take a trip down memory lane as you try to recall all of the phrases that you grew up with and many you probably still say today.  Go ahead and get your game today, remember if you "wait long you wait wrong."
