HOW TO PLAY

STORY CRAZE is a creative story writing game for kids that’s easy to play!  

  • Players break up into teams to write 3 chapter stories—one chapter per round.
  • Each team draws one card from each of the PEOPLE, PLACES and THINGS decks, a sheet from the story pad, and a pencil. Then, they have 10 minutes to incorporate their three cards while creating Chapter 1. That’s round 1.
  • When the timer runs out, each team tells their story out loud. A JUDGE card is drawn (usually by the youngest player), and the team whose story the Judge believes is most like the card is awarded a point.
  • Select new cards for Chapter 2, and continue the story. After the time is up, a new judge draws a new JUDGE card and awards a point. Repeat this process for Chapter 3, the final round. The team with the most points wins! If there is a tie, then a fourth chapter tie-breaking round will be played.

The backstory of STORY CRAZE is simple. In this age of high technology, we found that our kids are spending more and more time behind phones and computer screens, communicating in abbreviated “textease,” or simply not communicating at all. Their imaginations were being stifled. We knew we had to do something to help change this.

We collaborated with 30+ kids to create an experience where they could let their imaginations run wild—while learning to organize and effectively communicate their ideas by writing original stories.

WHY STORY CRAZE?

Our year of play-testing has shown that creative writing and storytelling boosts kids learning. Here’s how STORY CRAZE does this:

  • Builds communication skills, confidence and charisma as kids create and tell original stories.
  • Helps children find their voice to express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
  • Makes writing fun! Parents, Teachers and Caregivers know writing can be a hard skill to learn and teach. Making up stories comes naturally for children. It’s fun and allows them to combine real-life experiences with their imaginations.
  • Improves problem-solving and teamwork skills! This storytelling game can ignite creativity and divergent thinking in any child.
  • Challenges children to stretch their minds and get creative while figuring out how to combine completely random ideas.
  • Builds integrity and character when kids have the responsibility of being the Judge.
  • Hones important life skills such as teamwork, leadership, creativity, persuasiveness and organization.

WHERE TO PLAY

Creative writing and storytelling board games are great for the classroom and other educational settings, but that doesn’t mean that these are the only places that they can be enjoyed. Even though STORY CRAZE is a great way to help kids improve their writing and communications skills, it’s also a lot of fun. That means it’s a perfect game for kids to play wherever fun is allowed!

Mix up a homeschool lesson or class period with this fun writing activity. STORY CRAZE is also great for keeping groups of kids engaged, making it a perfect game for youth groups, camps and daycare centers. And of course, it’s a great family friendly board game to bring everyone together at home!

MAKING A CRAZY GAME

STORY CRAZE is a creative writing game for kids that was made with kids—and it’s parent approved! The game content and rules were created during multiple focus groups with lots of kids. Once the basic game was created, it was tested and tweaked until all players were all smiles. Over nine months, hundreds of kids in a variety of settings played to make sure it would resonate with all.
