Rory's Story CubesSpring 2010 Games
Recommended for ages 8 and up, it can really be used by any individual or group trying to wake up creative language skills, from preschoolers still working on vocabulary and learning to tell simple, one-sentence stories to adults struggling with writer's block. The fifty-four pictures are so general that they can be interpreted widely to allow for either very trivial or very complex stories. The dice are small enough to be carried anywhere; they can be brought out at anytime to pass the time or break the ice.
Editor's Note: There are 10,077,696 possible combinations of pictures. This simple and elegant little game offers a world of imagination and fun. We wonder if the folks at Gamewright would consider creating a Twitter challenge that asks people to Tweet a story based on a roll of nine story cubes? Could be really, really, really fun.
