The Fractal-family are big fans of Rory’s Story Cubes.
If you’re not familiar, they’re sets of dice with symbols on each face. You roll the dice and then tell a story that somehow incorporates each image. It’s good fun for kids and adults and the implications for gamers should be obvious.
Via Purple Pawn I see that this Fall they’ll be releasing a new set of Batman Story Cubes!
Have I ever mentioned that my gaming group loves superhero RPGs?
What would make this even more fantastic would be a comic introducing a new Batman villain who uses Story Cubes in his crimes. Just a one shot tie-in issue like they used to do in the 70’s and 80’s. It’s the perfect gimmick for a Batman villain.
I dream of a day when they start making Rory’s Story Cube sets for other genres; Dungeons & Dragons, Stars Without Number, Call of Cthulhu…
Okay, maybe that last one is a bad idea…
