The literature has shown that normal ageing is associated with a decline in sensory, perceptual, motor and cognitive abilities. This decline contributes to isolation and depression. We argue that tangible tabletop games have potential for enhancing the life quality of the elderly. This potential has not been fully explored. This paper aims to explore this potential by designing tangible tabletop games to help the elderly to remember and talk about the past.
