Talecraft Cards

What is Talecraft?

As a game, Talecraft aims to promote creative thinking through story creation. As a story-creation tool, Talecraft aims to help writers generate ideas for stories, and help combat Mental Block.

How to Play:

To play the game, the cards must first be arranged into three stacks: The Genre stack (red), the Archetype stack(blue), and the Key stack(yellow). The cards are facing down.

First, each player must pick one card each from the Genre Stack. That card will determine what genre the player’s story has to be. Next, each player must take two cards each from the Archetype Stack. One card will be their main protagonist, and the other card will be their main antagonist. Next, the players must pick six cards each from the Key Stack. Using the nine cards, the player must form a story.
