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.

Great for writers block, those times when small talk is difficult, fun conversation before a meal is served at a restaurant, on long car rides with kids, etc. There are many ways to play this game and if you're willing to get even more creative you can really tailor it to the group or your own preference. I have found that it also brings out different conversations or stories from people's own experiences that relate to the cards/story. The only thing is that my giftee brings Storymatic to different places and the box and cards can get dinged up. I suppose that's a symptom of good use!

Need to have an imagination

This is a good game for creative people like teachers or those who like to make up or write stories. Not so good for those who can't think of good or humorous stories and pull the story together. This can take a while to play. We had to write everything down so we wouldn't forget the story we were making up. I'm giving the game to my teacher friend.
