How to play

How to play:
Shuffle the cards and place them face down in the centre of the table. The youngest player draws one picture card and begins the story using the picture card as inspiration. Narrate your story by beginning with “Once upon a time…”. Play moves clockwise. Each player draws one card and incorporates the image from the picture card in the story. At least one sentence must be added to the story based on the image on the picture card. When the ‘The End’ card is drawn, the player must conclude the story.
