I got this as a gift and after dinner that night we decided to use it as a storytelling contest--it was a blast.

It's like making up stories around a campfire. But it's better because you get help letting your imagination run free.

I just awarded Storymatic Kids with a 2012 PAL Award for its incredibly fun way to learn to tell and write stories!

I think this looks like fun and if I was a teacher and could write is off as a job expense then I would buy one right now. Since I am not a teacher I am going to ask for one for my birthday.
You can’t NOT write a story. Or write a song. Or make a movie. In other words, you can’t not starting spinning a tale.
The Storymatic for Visual Artists
Many people want to tell a story using visuals instead of text, but they aren't sure where to begin. That's where The Storymatic can help.
First, read the The Storymatic for Writers section. All you need to do is substitute the word "draw" for the word "write."
As with the writers, you should establish a specific amount of time or page space in which you will tell your story. These parameters will keep you grounded. For example, you might give yourself an hour to sketch your story, and an hour to revise it. Or you might opt to think in terms of panels: "I will tell my story in 12 panels. No more, no less." Whichever you decide, The Two Laws of The Storymatic still apply: your main character must change from beginning to end, and your main character cannot die.
