The ‘Game’ of Storytelling

I often think of storytelling as a game.

Like every game, it has:

– Two or more players,

– An objective,

– Barriers, and

– Tools/techniques/hacks that you can use to tackle the barriers and win

We are all playing this game in various capacities and contexts all the time.

​Wouldn’t it be nice to really understand these barriers and tools, so that we can play better and win more often?

​And wouldn’t it be nice if the story of the game is told in the form of, well, a story?
