Game Night: Nanofictionary
The cardgame of telling tiny stories
Nanofictionary from Looney Labs comes out on August 17th, which also happens to be the first day of GenCon 50! Check your local games stores, or if you’re hitting up GenCon you might be able to find it there at the Looney Labs Booth 1652.
Where are we? Who is there? What’s going on? And how is it all going to end? These are the crucial questions each player answers, choosing from the cards they’re dealt to tell a very short story. Players combine Settings, Characters, Problems, and Resolutions to create a story they then tell to the other players.
Nanofictionary is a story-telling game in three rounds. In the first phase, everyone builds a collection of story elements, featuring at least one of each type. Next, players take turns telling a brief story based on the ideas in the set of cards they selected. Lastly, everyone votes for the story they liked best (besides their own). Whoever gets the most votes wins!
Quick and easy to play, this is a great family game, and can be used as an educational tool. Get your creative thinking caps on and have some fun with Nanofictionary!
I actually think this would be a great game to have in the classroom of an awesome teacher. It will encourage the kids to be creative while having some fun.
