This has SOOOO many ideas that it helps me to write, practice, and of course to come up with random suggestions when we get together to practice for our IMPROV COMEDY group. I like that the author has various ways for you to use the deck included in the booklet inside the box, and find that this added fun to the set. It does just what it says, giving you ideas to spawn new ones. If you want to step it up a notch, use it at bedtime with the kiddies to tell each other a story that you make up on the spot. Such fun!
EXAMPLE of some of the suggested games/uses for the cards from the booklet:
A) WHATCHOO WANT?
The key to creating good characters is to make them want something.
-- Draw one gold card. Suppose you draw "department store Santa". Say to yourself, "What does this character really, really want to be instead?
-- Answer that question by drawing a second gold card. Suppose you draw "surgeon".
-- Tell the story
-- When you finish that story, start another!
A character who works to achieve a goal is usually more interesting than one who wants something and simply gets it.
-- Continue WHATCHOO WANT by asking, "What is preventing my character from achieving this goal?"
-- Answer the question by drawing a copper card. Suppose you draw "police investigation"
-- Tell the story.Read more ›
I don't have this problem with the Storymatic. The 500 cards give a writer limitless sources of inspiration. The enclosed booklet offers some interesting suggestions for how you might use it. Tool around a bit and see which suggestion works best for you. I tend to stick with "the classic," but I've had pretty interesting results with some of the others as well.
I've also brought it out during our "game nights." Competitive storytelling makes for a fun evening with friends. And the Storymatic was created by a teacher, so I can only imagine how great it would be in the classroom.
The Storymatic is a terrific tool for anyone interested in telling stories. I can't recommend it highly enough.
