Family Game Night: Nanofictionary

nanofictionaryWhen you make a recipe, you check first for ingredients – well most of the time. Sometimes the ingredients in your fridge and pantry dictate what you are making for a meal.  In this game, the amazing crew over at Looney Labs have given you the ingredients for a story and now it’s your turn to make the most amazing dish (in this case story) that you can.  Bring on the creativity and laugh at what comes about!  Great for the entire family and highly recommended for the classroom. There are so many options with the combinations of cards, there is nearly endless play here for years to come. Consider this a party game as well – just imagine a group of adults, a few bottles of wine and well – you can just imagine…..

Where are we?  Who is there?  What’s going on?  And how is it all going to end?  These are the crucial questions each player answers, choosing from the cards they’re dealt to tell a very short story.

Nanofictionary is a story-telling game in three rounds. In the first phase, everyone builds a collection of story elements, featuring at least one of each type. Next, players take turns telling a brief story based on the ideas in the set of cards they selected. Lastly, everyone votes for the story they liked best (besides their own). Whoever gets the most votes wins!.
