7/30 (Tue.) Once upon a time

文章 Timmy »

Dear friends,
Parisian Love tells a romantic story that is so simple and yet so memorable.

With only a few key search terms, we can vividly feel the excitement of reaching milestones: studying abroad, finding a soulmate, and having babies.

This Google's commercial shows that simplicity and creativity are significant elements in storytelling, which can make our everyday life more colorful.

So this time we are going to learn how to tell an interesting story together by playing Once Upon a Time and Dixit!

They are really fun storytelling board games. Trust me we will have an amazing game night together.

How clever! I guess you are going to have a marvelous time tonight!

I remember I've played Dixit, but I forgot in which occasion, maybe one of the YoYo outings. It was fun because we laughed at each other why they chose the card to match the storyteller's phrase/word, and sometimes their story was so far-fetched!

I love this "Once Upon a Time" video. It seems they had incredible "bonding" to weave the "bizarre" fairy tale in such a way that I was captivated until the end of the storytelling. :)
