Once Upon a Time: The Storytelling Card Game

You may be the only writer in your family, but every human’s a storyteller. Tap into your creative side with this fairy tale-inspired game, which encourages players to weave a plot using character, item, place, and event Story Cards. The goal is to play all the Story Cards and a final Ending Card, but there’s a catch: Other players can interrupt and highjack the narrative in pursuit of their own ending.
