Box not included in DIY kit

The Designercise Storytelling Kit will enhance your narratives and plot lines. The kit includes the Object, Think On One, Scenario and Green Level Problem card decks which, combined, help players expand thinking and narrative building skills. It includes games such as “Existential Crisis” (players give a voice to an inanimate object as it has a crisis of creation and existence!) and “Story Arc” (kind of like speed dating but for building narratives through problems). In the “Folding Paper” game players have to draw an interpretation of a secret word. During the super fun group narrative building game “Build it,” everyone has to add their random card to a story as the group builds the narrative. This kit helps players develop approaches to divergent language and narrative use, build stronger communication skills and improve collaboration. In addition to the group games, there are suggestions for using the decks to help overcome narrative block!

This DIY Kit includes:

  • Instructions on how to make your kit!
  • 4 different decks of cards
    (20 cards in each deck)
  • An instruction sheet for how to play the 5 games + warm ups
