Once Upon a Time

StoryLine transforms crafting stories into a collaborative experience. A single game tells a complete narrative with a beginning, middle, and end. The role of narrator shifts from player to player each round, while other players offer suggestions for various story elements—characters, places, objects, features, and actions—from which the current narrator chooses. The player whose suggestion is chosen earns a reward. Designed for three to eight players, and ideal for playing with children, StoryLine offers portable, engaging, wholesome entertainment for the whole family.  

Our Story Starts Here…

In StoryLine, two decks of cards shape the story. One is the narrator deck, which provides the framework and plot of the story in broad strokes. The other deck is the story deck, which provides the elements necessary to populate, situate, and fill out that framework. Every turn, the narrator draws a card from the narrator deck, reads it aloud, and lays it down. The other players select cards from their hands that match the kind of element asked for. 

Imagining Things Together

Being particularly fond of dragons, the narrator selects that element to be included the story, and reads aloud, “During the journey, our hero met a charming dragon,” perhaps then elaborating, “with black wings and able to breathe the hottest fire. But it was still a young dragon, about the same size as a large dog, so instead of attacking the hero, it sniffed the hero’s hands and then nuzzled up against the hero’s legs affectionately, waving its tail.” In a game of StoryLine you're free to expand the narrative however you want. Follow your creativity wherever it takes you.  

These Are Your Stories

StoryLine is designed to foster the enjoyment of narratives and words. When you lay a narrator card and story card next to each other, they form the pages of an open book. The fanciful illustrations help bring to life the words on the cards, and enable developing readers to decipher new words. More than just providing entertainment, Storyline encourages engaged reading, inspires creativity, and makes memories.
