These cards are a distillation of the SCAMPER brainstorming technique; each card contains a `question' or a thought to be applied during brainstorming activities. The cards are nearly a word for word breakdown of the SCAMPER method as described in the Thinkertoys book. The pack comes with a small booklet which describes various way of using the cards and in addition it contains a number of cards detailing how to assess the results of the brainstorming.

If you are short of time and want an `instant' brainstorming process then these cards are very good. If you have more time buy the thinkertoys book and develop your own brainstorming approach; the book is packed with other methods and techniques.

I have given these cards 3 stars as there is nothing really new over the book and so aren't the best value for money.

This is a terrific brainstorming tool. Whenever I flip throught the cards, the ideas start popping up out of nowhere. I've given decks to everyone on my staff. Now, we automatically flip throught them, whenever we are problem solving or looking for new ideas. This is the best tool for creative thinking that I have ever seen.

I've been using this pack for about a year now as a tool for finding lateral solutions to creative situations. I compose music and the symbolic achetypes which Michael Michalko uses to categorise his Thinkpak cards feed into the creative process seamlessly.
If you want more specific advice then turn the card over and read an excellent situation which may relate to or challenge the way that you're thinking about your own situation.
I also use Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies.

This is a very practical tool for use in brainstorming sessions when you are brainstorming for ideas alone or in a group. The ideas start coming almost involuntarily as you flip through the cards. I keep a deck at my desk and have become addicted to its use.

This is just a pack of cards with ideas on them. Now that might seem pretty easy to create your own - but these do cover the ground without you always thinking, "I wonder if there's something I've missed". The big thing with using a tool like this is you need to remember that you still have to do the work and the thinking - it's not a short cut - it's a tool. So, as far as being a tool and not an answer, it's great and there's not much ele out there at this sort of price. For a tenner what have you got to lose? It's not my only tool - but it's been with me for about ten years now and always handy to use when I need it.

Attractively packaged and useful to get the ball rolling when generating ideas. The cards are a version of an exercise in Thinkertoys by the same author. The cards are portable and useful to carry around but the book has more to offer
