Rory's Story Cubes a review

Awarded the Dr. Toy’s ’10 Best Games’award, the original Rory’s Story Cubes® game contains nine 19mm cubes with iconic images to spark the imagination.
9 cubes 54 images 10 million combinations Unlimited stories
The visual and kinaesthetic nature of Rory’s Story Cubes®, along with the simplicity of design and gameplay make it accessible to engage with for all ages and abilities.
How it works… Rory’s Story Cubes are a remarkably simple and effective means for inspiring creative thinking and problem solving in all of us. Simply toss all the dice, examine each of the nine face-up images and let them guide your imagination through a story that begins with “Once upon a time…”.
The nine dice, each with an image on six sides, hold a total of 54 images. This means that with every roll, there are over 10 million combinations for you to use as the inspiration for your story. The uses for Rory’s Story Cubes are boundless. Whether it’s in a classroom or business, the process of creating and telling your own story can provide untold understanding of our language, of the world we live in and of ourselves.
The secret is not to think too deeply. Simply ‘gulp’ in the images and start talking. The story will reveal itself through the cubes and in so doing, will unleash creativity, freedom of expression and frequently, an insight to how to solve a seemingly intractable personal or business problem.
The quality cubes are moulded for durability and feel really good to hold. The take-anywhere box (60mmx60mmx25mm) is durable and popular with teachers and other professionals as a portable tool.

A brilliant resource for any age or ability , a good icebreaker for those who have the ability and lack the confidence to speak. It is useful for those who are in the lower abilities groups to promote their ideas and self esteem. So there is not need for any parent to get hung up over ability groups when it comes to literacy as these are also a resource you can use at home.

I wish that had had these when my son was younger as he struggled for years with his literacy because of his glue ear and it took him years to catch up. Now he is top of his school year and a sporting success playing rugby for Derbyshire.

These are a brilliant resource that is not too expensive every classroom at Primary School should have a set or at least share one!.
