Sample Mailing List Message


I'm pleased to announce that the first version of Storycards is now available from This is a free computer game for kids that I've been writing for some time now. The basic idea is to create silly stories, built out of single-word cards representing the parts of speech (nouns, verbs, etc.).

The game comes with two "decks" of cards that you can play with: one, called "EveryDay", is loaded automatically. The other, called "Space", can be loaded instead or in addition to the first one. And if you want more, you can create your own decks, with your own pictures and whatever words you want! It is my hope that people will make lots of decks and share them with everyone. Soon there will be a library for shared decks on the website.

This is version 1.0, and if you play with it you'll see it's pretty simple. I have plans for lots of cool stuff in future versions: printing stories, e-mailing stories to other people, an easy-to-use deck editor, talking decks and much more. And your ideas are always welcome, of course, as are reports of (heaven forbid!) bugs or trouble.

If you're interested in getting occasional updates on Storycards (no more than one per month), please sign up for the e-mail list on This will be the only message I send out to everyone like this.

There's more information on the website, including screenshots. If you have any questions, just let me know!
