Cinderella and the Magic and Fairy-tale Dice (Story Telling Game)

Magic and Fairy-tale Dice (Story Telling Game) dropped in price overnight to 27% off on Amazon--if it hasn't already gone up--and I decided to finally acquire them. I imagine there are things I will prefer about these over the Once Upon A Time Storytelling Card Game. The dice are backordered but that is better since I can fudge them into a Christmas present for myself.

The fun game, one I can only play right now, is to pick a die and pull a Cinderella out of my head that incorporates that image. I mean a written Cinderella, not one of my own creation. There's just so many of them...and my head is a temporary database of them. Seriously, every single one of the images below on the dice can conjure up a Cinderella tale for me. Well, the bow and arrow might be pushing it. But if it were a sword...I could do that. Trees and pumpkins? Too easy. Even if you don't use Grimms or Perrault. It's more fun if you don't! Quick, name a tale in which Cinderella disguises herself as a gourd! But ghosts, frogs, cats? I can do those, too. When Cinderella Tales From Around the World is finally released, you will be able to play, too, with a simple word search of the ebook. It could be a really boring parlor game.
