Twisted Tales is a family game that uses a group setting to build a story which is constructed by a designated storyteller and scored by earning votes. It takes some thought and a bit of wit, but there is no doubt that Twisted Tales really brings out the creativity in people. Each of the cards can be interpreted by the teller however they choose, and it is really fun to see and hear how everyones imaginations work. Composing funny or twisted tales might seem daunting to some, and there is a reason for that. Storytelling has almost become a lost art, but this game helps to breathe new life into it. After playing several times testers found that their storytelling skills were getting stronger, and more nuanced as both kids and parents started adding more detail to their stories. It was not lost on parents that this would really help their kids when it came to strengthening their writing skills. As for the game, it ends when the pre-determined story count is reached and points are added up. The voting cards have great sayings to keep the game light and fun. Even if you dont care for a story being told, you can always vote with a card that has a funny saying so as to not hurt anyones feelings, this is a great touch. This first edition has a good amount of starter cards. Testers told us they look forward to future releases of card packs. Testers who identified themselves as fans of family card games felt that Twisted Tales will be ideal as an addition to their family game night collection.
