Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 8, 1:34 PM

Innovative storytelling is on the rise! Here's the second post today on creative developments in business storytelling.


This drinking game to generate stories made me smile and wish I was in the room with this group!


The post by Ilan Mochari @IlanMochari gives the directions for how to use this game to generate stories and visual storyboards in a fast and fun way. And it teaches everyone a lot about communication, too.


Why would you want to use this game? In this instance it was used to generate new ideas for marketing and branding campaigns. As the author says, it's easy to rinse and repeat previous campaigns, and harder to come up with new ones.


I think it's ingenious and definitely want to try it out. If you experiment with it, let us know what happens. And what other ways could you use this game in business?


Have fun and story on :)

Not sure I agree that digital story design has to be segregated from 'traditional' forms in quite this way. It's all storytelling, after all!


But well worth the read.
