Hello everyone !
Today we are going to talk about Once upon a time.
Each player initially has cards representing elements of fairy tales (a crown, a monster, a princess, ...) and a conclusion card ("they married and had many children.").
The first player who is the narrator will have to improvise a tale by placing the items in their hand, in a coherent way, and by discarding the cards concerned as they go.
The goal is to get rid of all his cards by ending with his "outcome" card.
If the storyteller hesitates too long or if his story lacks consistency, he must draw a card and his neighbor picks up where it left off.
In addition, if the storyteller names an item in their story that another player has in hand, that player interrupts it and becomes the new storyteller.
Of course, he still has to take into account the already existing narrative.
There are also other cards that allow interruptions on more general topics.
So if you have an Interrupt-Character card, you can interrupt the storyteller as soon as he talks about any character.
The game can be played by children as well as adults.
Players should be forewarned that it is not as easy as you think to tell a cohesive story in front of even a well-known audience.
But the amazing thing is that while "Once Upon a Time" is a real game, the fun you get doesn't come from winning the game.
There is often a moment of poetry left, of an often idle and funny story that everyone will try to influence to lead it to their own conclusion.
Good day and good game ;)
