The Player Is Your Storyteller


We like to tell stories with our games, but the stories we tell are generally much less compelling than the stories the players are actually talking about with their friends. Enabling the players to tell their own stories is a big strength of games and is much more important than pushing our stories on them. There are some great tools that can be put into games (both Video and Board games) that will help the player tell their own stories and give the player ownership and investment in the game.
