Rory Story Cubes
Here's a game that's enormous fun and will sharpen your wits and hone your imagination. The 54 images were designed by Rory O'Connor of Ireland, a trainer in creativity and creative problem-solving. They can be used to arrive at answers or decisions in an indirect and ingenious way.
Rory’s Story Cubes® originated as a creative problem solving tool for adults, way back in 2004. Rory was a creativity trainer and coach, working with individuals and organisations to look at problems in different ways. The idea was conceived using an invention technique called ‘Advanced Civilisation’ (by
Win Wenger). Rory realised that the idea came from a combination of a book he was reading, ‘Hare Brain, Tortoise Mind’ and a course he was taking in ‘Guided Self-Healing’.
Rory's Story Cubes are recommended for all ages over 8, though it's fun to watch a younger child create combinations with the cubes and make up stories.
