The children have to spin tales using the word to beat each other.There were a set of power cards, and verb cards to add new twists and turns in the game. The children could could use science, fantasy, superhero, cartoon characters to build their stories. 

    The game was tested on children to understand how it was working, and if they were actually enjoying it. Feed back was taken from the children and versions of games were developed in the game.
