Storymakers is a family board game for:
8+, 45 minutes
Storymakers - just funtastic!
Use your imagination and make unique stories by combining the story cards. Write down the secret story code and the game starts. The other players think they understand you and how you think. But this is not always the case. As a true storymaker you may help them a bit, giving special hints. But will they understand you? The fun stories will cause hilaric situations, but also the way you have to communicate.
Over 100 million different stories can be told in this fun game. Storymakers contains a basic version for cooperative game play and a "party" version for players who want to play competitively. Is this game difficult? NO. Is it fun? Just try it out yourself and you will be convinced after your first play.
Good or just fantastic?
Story Makers has originally been created for people with limitations in communication. Therefore the goals of the game are to improve creativity, fantasy, communication, understanding of language and non-verbal communication. And it is just an extra, because the game is first of all just fun to play. It is also a chance to get to know each other. We have had many testers who defined this game "good", because of its purpose & effect. Since you can create over 100 million different crazy, mind-blowing stories, you can also define Story Makers as just a fantastic game. Or FUNtastic, if you want:).
Anything is possible!
In the game the Story Maker creates a new story by combining bits which you choose from the story cards. The cards bring absurd combinations like:
"Once upon a time there was... a funny vampire who crawled into a rocket to the moon and became very lonely."
With exactly the same set of cards you can also create this story:
"Once upon a time there was a terrifying princess who swallowed a small rocket and got very sick."
The other players will have to guess your story with hints & deduction.
Get out of your box!
You can image that there are many more crazy, funny & dramatic stories you can make with this set. Below you see a quick preview of a digital picture of the game set up. The board is set on the back of the box and the fantastistic path on which the adventure is being created, goes around the box, stimulating an "out of the box" mind-set. Combine the words on the board and make your own story. How much rounds will they need to guess it?
Risk taking, party game
Clearly, Story Makers is a game for families. In Storymakers there is some risk taking which makes this cooperative game more exciting. How well do you know each other? And will the hints you are giving be effective? The risk taking part of the game also makes it more interesting for adults and/or competitive players. The fun party rules for up to 10 players, introduces teamplay. The teams will have to bid against each other. More tension and excitement, but definitely a lot of fun when things do not work out as you thought they would. Let's have some fun!
