Storytelling games

Storytelling games are games where two or more persons collaborate on telling a spontaneous story. Usually, each player takes care of one or more characters in the developing story. These characters are often reused in different stories, and players often bond quite closely with their alter ego. At least one participant takes the roles of the various supporting characters, as well as introducing non-character forces (for example, a flood). Since this person usually sets the ground and setting for the story, he or she is often referred to as the "storyteller" (often contracted to "ST") or "narrator". Any number of other alternate forms may be used, many of which are variations on the term "gamemaster"; these variants are especially common in storytelling games derived from or similar to role-playing games.

In Once Upon a Time, the players create a story together using cards that show standard elements from popular fairy tales. One player takes the role of the Storyteller and uses the cards in their hand to guide the plot toward their own ending. Other players can use their cards to interrupt the Storyteller and to take on the role themselves. The winner is the first player to use all their cards, and end with the "Happily Ever After" card. For fans of the original, now there is Once Upon a Time-Dark Tales. In this expansion deck, tolls lurk under the bridges, fiends tempt the innocent and evil stepmothers serve up little children in tasty stews. Just mix the 56 new cards in this set with a copy of Once Upon a Time Card Game to add exciting new story elements. Remember, not all stories have a happy ending...
