Playing SPARK with Writer/Author & Her Family
We had so much fun playing @sparkstorygame today with an awesome family. We even tested our new Kids Play music player (which is included with the game) that plays friendly music for Tinys who want to try their hand at storytelling. This experience was magical. I‘d never met this family before today but found myself swept away by the amazing stories they told.
That’s the craziest thing about this game, everyone can do it. As far as I can tell everybody is a storyteller. How's that? Well, when we (that means you and me) were little, our parents would give us toys and guess what we’d do? We’d immediately start imagining stories. Somehow, somewhere on the road to adulthood that part of us goes to sleep. But when we‘re given the right prompts and some great music as a backdrop, that storytelling part of us awakens.
Storytelling is as natural and instinctive to everyone as is breathing. In fact, we’re so good at telling stories we don’t even know we’re telling ourselves stories; for example, some are so good they convince themselves that they cannot tell stories. 😉
I have never met a person that couldn’t tell an amazing story. All they need are a few sparks to get the magic moving ... and that is exactly the magic of this game. There is nothing like it. It brings friends and families together in ways they’ve never experienced before. And when you have a chance to connect, laugh, and imagine with friends, family, and even strangers ... that connection makes our world a slightly better place. Maybe that's the best story of all.
