Tell Stories using a Normal Deck of Cards

Post by ExTSR » Fri Mar 02, 2018 6:51 pm

I invented a thing called Fairy Tale Games(tm).

You pretend to be living inside a classic fairy tale.
Then you change the story to suit your talents and opportunities, guided by whimsy and imagination.

Here you’ll find few rules and great freedom.
It’s a way to create together.
Instead of fighting monsters, you’ll talk to them!
In Fairy Tale Game™ adventures you can be a hero now and then, only when you want to. The game will encourage you, not force you.

You – the player – can make anything happen in a medieval world of talking animals and witches.
You decide how the story unfolds, trading and ‘spending’ cards to make things happen.

All you need are these simple rules and a normal deck of cards.
That’s all there is to it!

Sourcebooks & accessories coming soon. Fairy Tale Games and FTG are Trade Marks owned by Loxley inc. All Rights Reserved.

Very interesting!

I like using a standard deck for this type of game. Could it work with a Tarot Deck?

Here's the Script for a demonstration/learning game of FTG.
Just find 3+ friends and a deck of cards, and start reading out loud. :)
