How to Play Story Slams

About: Why hello there, Web Traveler, I am Colin. This is my little section of the web, filled with unique and profound imaginations.I enjoy crafting board games, photography, and writing. Enjoy my page.

Slap Stories is A Great Time-Killer to play on rainy days. I liken it to a combination of Uno and Story-Telling. This really brings people together, and is so easy to learn and add your own family twist.  So, Lets get started!

Step 1: Print This Stuff Out and Cut It Apart

This is probably the hardest part. Download the word files I attached and cut them. (I used a paper cutter, but that's up to you)

Step 2: Play!

How to Play:

The Object of the game is to get rid of all your cards. First, divide the deck between everybody equally. (Or Half of it, if you're playing with a group of 2 or 3 people) Then start a story. You could Google for story-starters, but you can just start one from your own mind. (and Deck) Then, you must put down as many cards as you can within 5 sentences. First one out wins.

That was easy, right?

Step 3: Variations

You Could Conceivably make your own deck, or add to mine. Here are some ideas:

Center your deck around a genre (Sci-Fi, Action)
Center your deck around a TV show, book, or movie that everyone is familiar with.
Use only single-word cards.
Use only action cards.

Or you could even twist the rules a little:

Find a way to be able to gain cards back
Limit the number of cards you can put down in one turn
Place a time-limit
Increase or decrease the sentience-limit
Make Teams

    Awesome! We have already tried something like this game, but there is a similar game on the WarpSpawn, too:


    It's really sure that you mention: on a rainy day (or simply in a good company) these games can bring people together.

    Fhtang! And congrats;-)
