Reviews & Comments:
BGG Rex Plasmator:"Great fun to play with friends. It is interesting to see what stories they come up with. Some of the subjects can be quite surprising, as they can take a very figurative rather than literal interpretations of the icons. I do not think I will pass up a round or two of this game."
BGG Aeos James:"My kids love this one. He took it to school for show and tell and the teacher now needs it"
BGG S K:"I'm glad that I found Rory's Cubes. This cute little game stimulates creativity and imagination. There are no limits to using these dice. The more you use them, the more ideas you will have for their use.The quality of the cubes is very good. Recommended."
BGG Cubsfan31:"OK, this isn't really so much a game as an activity, but my kids love it. We used it tonight as an exercise to have my son review his vocabulary words -- I gave him a topic to build his story around, then he rolled the dice and had to tell us a story incorporating all his vocabulary words. It gave me a chance to help him understand how to use his words in context and how to form sentences while he came up with a crazy story about a guy who parachuted into Alaska and encountered a crazy old man in a cabin. By the end, we were all embellishing the story and the kids were rolling on the ground laughing - it was great fun! We ran through it a second time with a new roll of the dice and since he had the hang of it by then, the story was even funnier. Then his sister had to get into the act ... it was all I could do to get them to bed tonight. Not something I'd be inclined to pull out too often on game night, but great fun when you just want to relax and get creative. A great tool to use with kids."
