Case in point: this review of Gamewright's dice game Rory's Story Cubes. Fun and stimulating for the entire family, including non-readers. I may need to make yet ANOTHER trip to the game store.

What a great site. I happened to pick you up on Twiiter and checked your site out. I happen to have a hobby site as well, please visit me at; http://NewHobbyIdea.com

Rory's story cubes are also available as an ipod app - great travel fun iwth our 4 year old on our last plane trip.

I bought these on vacation at Borders in an act of desperation, and they turned out to be GREAT! With a little bit of patience, they're good for a range of ages, even in the same story. My four-year-old had a blast.

I just might need these for our upcoming vacation. I had seen a review of eeBoo Tell Me a Story cards, which look similar--more thematic, pretty illustrations, but maybe less open-ended.

I've always liked Axis & Allies. It's the WWII nerd in me I guess.

You could make your own, if you were inclined, as cards and put them in a cute little mint tin and voila, perfect restaurant toy too.
