We love a game that we can all play together and the sillier the better so The Story telling game is perfect for us.
Each player is dealt ten cards and the player who starts winds up the timer and starts the story with the words “Once upon a time” They have to continue the story until they can use on of the words on their cards. Once they have used a word, they put down that card and they shout “Next” and the person to their left has to continue the story until they use one of their words. It goes around and around until the buzzer goes. That person has to pick up all the discarded cards and the next round starts with “twice upon a time”.
As you can see from the picture there are a variety of cards you can get. The words in yellow are phonetic words so these are great for early readers and you can play the game just using these. There are also special cards a smiley trump which can be used as any word or if you are caught out by the timer you can pass the pile to the next player. A reverse direction card be used to send the story the other way.
The winner is the first person to get rid of all of their cards.
It is a great game that produces some very funny stories.
