Really Fun!
I wasn't disappointed. The game was fun and it got my kids to make up wild stories. We laughed and they were not on electronics which made me happy!

co op and home use
I bought this to use in a small co op class as well as home. My middle school children really liked it and really got into writing a story. We have not used it in a class yet, but I can see we would have to use two classes. The first to collect the cards and outline/notes and the second for the story and scoring. It helped my children to actually finish a story since they were not bogged down choosing so many elements.

My girls have been playing this game for at least 5 years and they are 14 & 16 now! They love it and have a blast with writing the stories They think it's hilarious and are always laughing at each others stories First they have to choose cards from different piles on the board (for example one may be a "plot" card "setting" card "character" card etc and on the other side give an interesting plot or whatever that card is Usually they are quite funny) After they have collected their cards they do an outline (given questions they fill in the blanks) of what their story will have in it using the cards they picked up The challenge is how to tie the different ideas together Then they write their stories My girls don't like to let the other know what they are writing so it will be a surprise Then they get to read their story to each other and they have so much fun It makes writing fun like Mad-Libs makes grammar fun

I was having trouble getting my 8 year old to write anything This is so easy to use with no preperation My daughter is a hands on/visual learner I think it makes her "feel smart" as a writer She asks to play We spend one day playing the game and filling out the outline sheet Then she writes her paper the next day I am so excited to see her glow with satisfaction of completing a full written paper It's bringing her confidence out that yes - she CAN write It's a bit spendy But going from hating writing and no writing to enjoying and having fun writing is worth every penny to me

This game is incredible! My 11 year old daughter and I love it The directions are easy to follow and no teacher prep is necessary This is really great for creative writing ideas The children play the game collecting cards for use in filling out an outline Then they write As a parent/teacher I have found this game to be challenging It's good for me to play the game and write as well as my children so I can really understand that it's not as easy as it looks It has been a treat to write with my daughter sharing our stories together I highly recommend this product Though it is pricey I have to say that it is indeed well worth the expense

It's a great game
Amy M on Feb 7, 2019
My son is not a strong writer. He is very creative when it comes to games or building things, but when he has to think of things to write, or create stories to write, he draws a blank. After reading some reviews, and talking with him, I thought since this was a game, and due to prompting, and outline paper, I am hoping that after playing several times he will understand the concept of writing.

I homeschool my two daughters and thought this would bring some fun to writing imaginative stories.

We're working on improving my 10 year old's and 11 year old's story writing skills in fun, engaging ways. It also has a thorough explanation on Cathy Duffy Reviews that convinced me to give this a try.

Suggested by Cathy Duffy as a top choice for helping my kiddos write stories.

Good summer game to help my son who has a hard time expressing himself

looks really fun and educational.
Jennifer P on Mar 31, 2017
We lack strong composition/writing curriculum because my girls are bogged down with learning how to read, spell, know gammar and do math. We have Writing with Ease which is great for teaching how to structure writing but I suspect my kids could benefit from this game as a fun supplement from time to time to help with gaining a more well rounded composition knowledge.
ZACHARIA M on Feb 8, 2017
My homeschooler had a hard time with writing stories , creating stories , and it always ends in tears , I find games are a great way to reduce the stress. And have fun learning.

Would this be too "young" for an 8th-grade boy?
User on Sep 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, I do not think so. The game is designed for 5-adults. I would place the starting age a bit higher. The game provides challenge. You have to create a story from the cards you draw. It is not easy to create a story when you are given the elements to use. It can be a real challenge. I have used this game at home and in a co-op setting. It was fun and engaging. My co-op students did outlines, editing and re-writes. We had some great laughs, which made the creative writing project fun and enjoyable. I was pleased with the outcome and effort that the students made. They were proud of their work.
