STORY CREATION CARD GAME
Our writing center, Where the Write Things Are has a new toy. It’s Talecraft by Komikasi Enterprise. It’s a card-based game to create stories. My mom got it from the World Copyright Day Book Fair this year at the Quezon City Memorial Circle. You can get it from Komakasi’s online store, too.
Now, let’s try it out and play! The rules of the card game goes something like this—the cards will be arranged in three stacks: Genre Stack(red), Archetype Stack(blue) and the Keyword Stack (yellow).
Each player will pick one card each from the Genre Stack. This card will determine genre the player will write about. Next, each player will pick two cards from the Archetype stack. One card will be the main protagonist and the other card will be the main antagonist. Then, the players must pick six cards from the Keyword stack. Now, the players have five minutes to create their stories (I think I’ll need more than five minutes!).
There are also some twists to this card game. If a player gets a Pick card, the player must follow what’s written on the card like picking another card from either the Genre stack (so you can have more than one genre, ex. Romantic Fantasy) or Archetype stack (so you’ll have another character for your story). There’s also a Swap card where the player can discard one of her/his cards and pick a new card from the same stack.
After shuffling the cards, here’s what I got.
Let’s exercise our writing muscles this long weekend!
