Story War, A Combative Card-Based Storytelling Party Game

It’s being described as Apples to Apples meets Super Smash Bros!” – Alexis Ohanian

Story War” is a combative card-based storytelling party game by Brad O’Farrell (creator of Keyboard Cat), Tom McLean (aka “frezned“) and illustrator Vondell Swain of Cantrip Games. The game allows you to “battle your friends by telling stories, referencing pop culture, and making stuff up.” Cantrip Games has partnered with Breadpig to help raise funds on Kickstarter and allow for more creative content, custom cards and expansions to be released.

Story War is a storytelling party game for 3 to 8 players. Players split into teams and take control of classic characters like Puss In Boots or a fire-breathing Dragon and use creativity and humor to defeat the opposing team.

In most games the difference between victory and defeat has a lot to do with numbers; the story itself is secondary. But in Story War controlling the narrative is the only way to win. There are no numbers or rules on the cards, only artwork and hilarious descriptions. It’s up to the players to decide how to interpret their powers, which means that every game tells unique stories based on the collective creativity of everyone involved.
