Use Storyplay Cards To Practice Your Storytelling

I panicked my daughter this morning when I told her I was doing a giveaway of StoryPlay Cards.

“NO – I love those!”

We both do.

Not to fear, daughter, the winner will get a brand new set cards, not our review set which my friend, Randy Compton in Boulder, Colorado sent me to review.

Randy’s company is Think-a-lot Toys and he also makes really amazing creative play game called Think-ets.

But, I digress.

You’ll love his new product, StoryPlay Cards.

There are 88 cards and 2 wild cards. I’m not sure where to start – there’s so much to do with these cards so how about a list of all the fun ways to stretch your imagination, game playing or storytelling.

  • Once Upon a Story: tell a story using 7 – 11 cards.
  • Favorite Story: use the cards to remember a favorite story and tell the group.
  • Spoons: spoon game with the cards
  • Sets: Like Pit, you try to collect a set of cards (colored borders on all cards, a set is 8 cards.)
  • Poker
  • Concentration
  • Match-Up and Quick Match: similar to Crazy 8s
  • Battle: like War
  • Charades
  • Meow: try to collect the most cards – good for younger kids
  • Animal Slap

See what I mean?

    The cards look beautiful. Could be a great learning tool for my son’s dual language classroom – stories could be in English or Japanese!

  3. says

    What a great idea. I think these would be a lot of fun at the dinner table with all the kids! My second oldest is studying Japanese and my son German. It’ll be fun to hear all that!
