Product description

Product Description

Once Upon a Time is the award-winning storytelling card game that encourages creativity and collaborative play. One player is the Storyteller, and begins telling a story using the fairytale elements on her Story cards, guiding the plot toward her Ending Card. The other players use their own cards to interrupt her and become the new Storyteller. The winner is the first player to use all her Story Cards and play her Ending Card. The object of the game, though, isn't just to win, but to have fun telling a story together.

Box Contains

110 x story cards
55 x ending cards

Upfront I'd like to point out that I had heard of this game on Will Wheaton's "Table top" web programme. I thought the concept was sufficiently intriguing to give it a spin. You get a vast deck of cards with key words aimed at guiding players towards creating a story. This is a collaborative game, and the more players you have at the table, the more fun the game gets. Your ultimate aim, if at all possible, is to table all your cards and complete the story being narrated. There are few rules to learn which I think adds to the charm of this game. The only negative comment I would like to make is that I think that the game comes in way too big a box for what is essentially a deck of cards. Maybe future versions could have smaller, sleeker boxes which focus on holding just the decks. The rules could be written on the back of a card of the same size as the rest of the deck, or if one is not enough a fan-fold manual could be used. Other than that, great game and one I would recommend to anyone fond of word or story games.

When you play Once Upon A Time you work together to create a story. The rules are pretty straightforward although you'll find that the various challenges that happen throughout the game will need some ajudication.
If all the players can free up their creative side and let their imaginations flow you can create some really fun stories together. If peopel want to play a game competitively to win - this probably isn't the best game as it's going to result in a lot of arguments.
The game also makes a great educational tool for exploring narrative or an exercise for practicing second languages.

Once upon a time is an extremely clever game of collaborative story-telling, in which you and the other players around the table are attempting to cash in the narrative beats represented in their hands whilst simultaneously driving the story towards a conclusion that is unique to you. The problem is, every time your story intersects with the cards in an opponent's hand, they can take control of the storytelling and start driving the tale towards their own ending. It's fast, wickedly funny, astonishingly creative, and designed with such generosity of spirit that it can make you feel genuinely clever simply through playing.

Very highly recommended.

This game is easy to play and lots of fun for all. It's straight forward to follow the rules but you can change the rules to suit the age groups playing as necessary.
You simply all get cards and have to tell a story incorporating the pictures or words on your cards. If you say a word on another players cards you end your turn. First player to use all their cards wins. My daughters have enjoyed playing this game lots.

Nice game, which combines competition with collaboration beautifully. It's a gentle time and relies entirely on the people playing it. I can imagine this being awful with the 'wrong' people - but you're not going to be playing with them, are you? The beauty of this is that it works for most ages, as the level of sophistication is mostly owned by the players and not the game itself. My 7 year old lad enjoyed playing this with us (and we adults enjoyed it too - we weren't just 'tolerating' it), but he is a strong reader for his age. Lovely.

I can't tell any story, so I assumed this game wouldn't be for me, but it's actually a lot of fun!

You don't have to be storyteller to play it. You can connect cards with absurd plot twists and it makes a hilarious Monty-Pythonesque stories.

There's also a bit of strategy involved, you can be cunning with words you use. It's my favourite game.

I absolutely love this game. There are so many possibilities for stories and outcomes, making for some hilarious tales. It's a lot of fun to play and even with 6 players it doesn't feel too crowded.
My one concern is the packaging. For what you get it's a very large box and you aren't provided with any smaller boxes or anything to prevent cards from getting all over the place.

This is a very clever game, and great for teaching kids and adults all sorts of useful skills. Performance, imagination, communication, creative writing, team spirit and cooperation.

It can take a little effort at first to get kids into the spirit in which this game is intended to be played, but once it clicks you can have hours of fun making up awesome fairy tales and stories.

The game mechanics are pretty simple and flexible too which makes it a breeze to play. I played it with a friend and her ten year old and we had a whale of a time.
