I don’t know how I managed to go so long without learning about Rory’s Story Cubes. I mean, these are right up my alley and look like a lot of fun. I plan on snatching them up to use with my kids, and also maybe to use on my own to generate story ideas for my own writing.
For any of you who have also managed to never hear about them, Rory’s Story Cubes are 6-sided dice with various icons on each side, which when rolled to get random images, the player puts together to improvise a story, as can be seen in this introductory video:
I think this can be a fantastic way to spend some time with your kids, entertaining one another while developing creativity. Aside from the basic set, there are (as can be expected) various expansions covering Actions, Voyage, Clues, Enchanted Action, and even things like Batman and Doctor Who!
Seriously, I am going to have to buy all of these…
