Tell Tall comes with four different games:
Round N Round -- Each person has 4 cards, Each person takes a turn flipping over their card, and adding to the ongoing story based on that card.
Showtime -- Each person gets 6 cards, and tells there story based on 6 cards uninterrupted, in order.
Storyboard -- Each person gets 6 cards, and can pick either side of each, and arranges their cards however they like. They then tell a story.
The Stack -- Take cards one at a time from the stack, until all sixty cards are exhausted.
Some examples of cards: woman jogging, modern shower,boxing glove, guitar, fortune teller, chemistry set, man in jeans dancing, man and girl in modern outfits on beach, man and girl in modern outfits dancing, big sign for motel cafe, patched teddy bear, box of tissue paper, saw-wrench-hammer, vector equations on chalkboard, ambulance, set of false teeth, boy playing baseball, television, drive-in, modern crutch, motorcycle, person using computer, cruise ship, modern toilet, some skyscrapers
These examples are not the stuff of fairy tales. Once you've established a prince fighting a giant lizard, it's not necessarily ideal for the modern world to intrude on the story. In the Once Upon a Time cards, all cards avoid things found only in the modern world. But I am an adult, and I know what an old style plow looks like, and the various tropes of fantasy. For youngsters, familiarity-bias is likely a good thing. At some age, maybe 10-12, the Once Upon a Time deck would be more suitable.
I have another game called "Spot It" that my kids discovered from their Strategy Lab at school. It was such a hit in the family that searching for similar games online I saw "Tell Tale" from the same company. It is a completely different type game, but nevertheless it wasn't a disappointment.
My son is a member of their school's team for Odyssey of the Mind; it is a program to create a team or teams of students to compete with different schools. Creativity is one of the biggest aspects of the competition. This game is one perfect example of an excellent tool to practice their skills.
Two thumbs up.

"Tell Tale" consists of 60 double-sided cards that have (nearly) random images on them. The concept is very basic - you deal out *some cards* (I usually do 6, but it really doesn't matter too much) and you use the images (in sequence) to construct a story. Since you have 120 total images (60 cards x 2 sides) the possibilities for new stories is nearly limitless.
A few notes
- "Tell Tale" comes with a nice carrying/storage tin
- The stated age for the cards is 5 and-up, but my 2 1/2 old daughter LOVES using these cards for her bedtime stories (although there are about 10 or so that I choose not to use). Each story lasts for about 1-2 minutes (max), but since we have visual references they are easy to follow and quite fun.
- I love the imagination that is required to construct each new story.
- While we use "Tell Tale" as part of our night time routine - our daughter likes for us to use the cards for more stories during the day.
- She likes to play with the cards and pull out the ones she finds interesting in an attempt to construct her own story.
- Some of the images are a little advanced...such as calculus equations on a chalk board while others are a bit abstract (such as a dark cloud over someone's head), but none of them are out of the grasp of a 5 year old.
Final verdict - "Tell Tale" is nice clean family fun. It promotes the use of imagination throughout the entire family - for us it has a been a home run!
