Hand-illustrated storytelling prompts - shuffle the deck and tell a story!

Everyone loves a good story. This simple game uses bright, whimsical illustrations as storytelling prompts. Draw a few cards and see if you can “connect the dots” to construct a compelling narrative.

Science has shown that telling a story is the most powerful way to activate our brains. It’s the fundamental way we communicate. For kids, hearing and telling stories is a powerful learning tool, both for exercising creativity and making new concepts understandable. 

We developed and illustrated this game for our own kids and have heard some amazing stories of how it’s been used — including road trips, in hospice care, for adults with mental disabilities, and as a writing tool in the school classroom.

What Age?

We’ve found that you need to be at least 1st or 2nd grade to “get it” and enjoy it. 3rd - 5th grade is the best age, OR if you’re an adult who likes outside-the-box party games or ice breakers.

Components

A 50-card “deck” featuring original cartoons of characters, scenic locations, random objects and plot devices. Everything you need to tell a great story.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
