Story Cubes — Tell me a story (Contest)
Friday, June 7th, 2024

Oh! We haven’t played this game since February!

I bought this little brainstorming tool years ago at some writers’ conference. “Story Cubes” is a brainstorming game. You roll the dice, and whatever pictures appear face-up are the ones you use to riff off a story. You can try to include all the cubes in your “story” or choose a few.

To make this fun, I’ll offer a prize—a $5 Amazon gift card—good for purchasing one or two stories…
Have fun with this! Don’t overthink! Here’s the roll…

    A detective is trying to solve the puzzle of where the thieves stashed their stolen goods… He needs to be cautious, there is danger all around…

    It was a beautiful day out, so I grabbed my sunglasses and backpack and went for a walk to the beach for some vitamin D. On the way I saw this HUGE black bird pulling this snake sized worm out of the ground. Looked like a good tug of war. Then this masked man with a skull and cross bones tattoo on his arm jumped out at me, trying to scare me or something. I wasn’t impressed. I waved him off and kept going. I passed through a lovely oriental style gate and there was the beach. Beautiful. Thought about dipping my toe in the water until I saw an octopus sunning itself in the shallows. Decided I needed to go back home and work on my jigsaw puzzle. Seemed safer today.

    I was out walking when I cam to an oriental gate of some sort. Sitting on top of it was a huge blackbird wearing a pair of glass like Harry Potter’s. He gave me a puzzle pieces and told me I had an important job. He gave me a backpack and some advice that told me that I would receive some help from weird sources – two shifters, one an octopus and then other a snake. He also told me not to trust the pirate. He could be identified by a skull and cross bone tattoo. Then everything disappeared except for the back pack.
