A Game of Storytelling

June 30, 2012 § 1 Comment

Normally, I try not to share things that aren’t writing-related on this blog. I try to stay on topic. And this is on topic, but in a somewhat tangential way.

One of my favorite web shows is Wil Wheaton’s Tabletop. The premise is simple: Wil gets a few people he knows to play a tabletop game with him.

It’s more fun than it sounds.

See, Wil doesn’t feature the standard board games like Monopoly, Clue, etc. Will finds unusual games like Castle Panic, Munchkin, Zombie Dice, and several others you may not have heard of.

This week, Wil and his friends played a game called Gloom.

I decided to blog about it because I think it does, in a way, relate to writing—or at least storytelling. It’s like improve for writers. It’s…well, just watch and see for yourself:

I can’t wait to get this game and play it with my writer and theater friends. It looks like great fun, and great storytelling practice!

I just had to share this, even if it is a bit off-topic.

Do you have a writing or storytelling game? If so, please leave a comment and tell me. I’m always looking for fun new games to play!
