The Story Sharing Game Is Not A Competition!

It’s A Skills Building Communications Game

There might be a player who is awkward as a storyteller and scores no points.  But that player also gets to score others and give out their points to the storytelling they most appreciate.   They are learning what to look for in developing a well-crafted, engaging story, and this is a win.

 

The timed rounds are a very important part of the communication building.  No family (or friends' group) operates where every member is given exactly the same amount of time to speak and must fill it (allotted time can also be used to ask questions of the other players).  Every player is also is forbidden to interrupt someone else’s time.   For a family to agree to abide by these rules is to put everyone into new territory, where the ability to listen becomes as important as the ability to speak.   

 

The game is based on
