"Explaining the rules only took a few minutes and we were into the game quickly."
"It is the perfect game to introduce younger players and to players who are just starting to play story games."
Yay! :D This is one of the stories Shane, his daughter and wife created:
Happy Birthday, Robot!
Robot is having fun in the long brick factory and she is playing games.
Robots name is Judy Junkette but her nickname is Flowerbot.
Sam chases Robot around the factory and also chases a little white mouse.
Robot hides behind a metal furnace and Sam catches Frankie the mouse.
Sam (a large, male black cat) shouts, "And you are it - Frankie!", but Frankie tags back!
Suddenly! Robot hears a dog bark coming from outside the factory and Robot yells "Home free!"
The game is over.
Yay again! Glad the family had fun, Shane! (You can see more of Shane's reviews at his blog, Fictitious Entry.)
And soon you'll see what happens when a whole class of fourth graders plays Happy Birthday, Robot! together. Hint: There is battery cake with chocolate oil.
