TERRIBLE TALES






TO PLAY
This is a game of story telling.
Shuffle the Deck. Each player draws 5 cards. 
The oldest or the youngest player starts.
A player starts to tell a story.
Players try to incorporate the idea on one of their cards into the story.
If a player does this he may discard that card.
After discarding, the player to his right continues the story.
The story ends when the last player discards his last card.
If a player manages to say something very witty, or clever, or profound, or poetic, or 
funny, or memorable, the other players may award him one or more Story points.
At the end of the story, the player with the most Story points wins. 

OPTIONAL RULES
