A Tale of 1,001 Stories

Have you heard the story about the brain surgeon who married an amateur boxer with amnesia? No? Then you just haven't told it yet! This novel box of cards contains all the inspiration needed to have ordinary people spin extraordinary yarns. The Storymatic was created by writer Brian David Mooney for a fiction workshop at Marlboro College in Vermont; he later expanded it for use with his high school students. Over time, his students pestered him to make copies of his cards, so they could use them at home with their friends and families. Finally he relented, and now the Storymatic can spin a happy ending in your home as well.

Creating a story with the Storymatic couldn't be easier. Simply draw two gold-colored cards to reveal characteristics of your tale's new hero or heroine. Then the copper cards provide the situation or motivation that puts your tale into motion. The included booklet contains instructions, games and prompts, and soon you'll be off exploring the reaches of your imagination. Makes a great tool for writers and teachers, and provides limitless fun for both children and adults. Made in the USA.
