Tell Me A Story is a party game of flipping cards to find what words you must use in a story. The fun begins when each player has to tell the story as its already been told then add to the tale with their own imaginative story using the words they flipped.
Tell Me A Story
The game consists of 3 types of cards: nouns, verbs and adjectives/adverbs. Start the game by separating the cards in to their three individual stacks and shuffling each stack, then laying them face down in the middle of the table.
The first player flips three cards over (one from each stack) and places them face up on the table. They have 30 seconds to think before beginning their story using the three cards that they just flipped onto the table. After they tell their beginning, the next player draws three cards (one from each stack) and places them face up beside the first player's cards. Now they must tell the story that the first player started and continue the story by adding their three words to enhance and lengthen the story.
Each player will have 30 seconds to think before starting to recite and add to the story. The story keeps expanding with each player having to repeat from the beginning and add their part to what has already been said.
If a player messes up, they are given one chance to redeem themselves but must draw an additional noun card that must be played with their three cards during that turn retelling and adding the new cards to the story. Each player is only allowed one second chance per game. If they cannot recall and add to the story completely, then they are out of the game. The game ends when only one player is left and they can tell the whole story. The winner is the last successful storyteller.
