Hollow Woods Story Telling Game Review
In this review I talk about the experiences of playing board games with my children for a different perspective on tabletop reviews. Our first review is of Hollow Woods which is an imaginative story telling card game I played with my daughter Phoebe, who is nine years old.
Hollow Woods comes in an attractive yet unassuming box that my daughter picked up after loving the idea of a more in-depth story telling game, a bit like our various sets of Story Cubes but with a bit more detail!
Inside the box is a set of 20 black and white picture cards, and two smalls sets of rules and explanations of some of the details in the pictures. Drawing from the Victorian craze of Myrioramas which were sets of illustrated cards that could be arranged and re-arranged to form different pictures; Hollow Woods offers a unique game for all ages.
These cards fit together seamlessly which is incredibly satisfying considering there are so many different combinations of cards. According to the creators of the game, there is 2.4 Quintillion different story telling possibilities!
