The "boomer.ology" game is among the many projects and programs featured in the 2018 edition of the AARP publication "Where We Live." (Click on the image to learn how to download or order the free "bookazine.")

To raise awareness about the needs of older adults and the ways communities can be age-friendlier for people of all ages, CARR, a San Diego, California-based consumer advocacy organization, applied for and received an AARP Community Challenge "quick-action" grant to create boomer.ology, a conversation-starting board game. CARR brings the game to public events and presentations. You can test your knowledge — and start conversations about age-friendliness, boomers and more — by answering the sample questions below. (Those of a certain age might recognize the Trivial Pursuit-inspired game card.)
