Chsukit Board Game: By Siddharth Srivastava
Concept
: As a kid (meaning that I’ve still not grown up) I remember making up stories, which would lastin my head in the form of images. Every time I hear or read something I draw a picture in my head andthat’s how I think I can recall it later. If the order of these images are rearranged I can easily make up anew story. Similarly I see the Pratham idea of re-mixing stories as a source of creating new stories.Imagination is something which I think everyone has and this is a good way of tapping it. I think mostbooks are written first and then illustrated. A story board game would follow a reverse process andprovide illustrations for which stories need to be written.Pratham Books is trying to promote reading by increasing accessibility of high-quality low costpublications. Here a story board game is proposed which can further help move towards this objective. The proposed game can act as a source of low cost original stories for Pratham Books. Following is what itbrings to the table:
Source of new stories
Stimulating curiosity of the readers towards the stories printed in the books (as its written by otherreaders like them)
 You get new stories with same illustrations
New stories with modified illustrations
Completely new story ideas for which new illustrations need to be made
A better understanding of the kind of stories the audience actually wants to read
Relevant stories – say written by other kids (more attractive to the audience)
 You get new story writers
Target Audience
: Anyone who likes to read or create stories.Following is a prototype of the story board:
 
RBS (ROYAL BANK of STORIES) [Some Game Title]
Contents of the game box
: The game box contains a set of 25 picture cards (say for your Chuskit story),a collapsible story board(s) (like beans design project) with space to place (maybe clip, hang or paste) thecards and corresponding spaces to write on, a pen/pencil, self addressed envelopes (according to thenumber of boards provided) to Pratham books and an instruction sheet containing details on how to submitstories online and send stories though post (hand written or typed) or email.
Sample Story Board
(The shape/design of the board can vary depending upon the points where itcollapses and need not be a 5*5 square box like shown here):
Place to writestory!!
........Space toplace thegraphic card
Space for writing astory here! Or a fewpages hanging here
 
Space for writing astory here! Or a fewpages hanging herelike a writing pad
11495
 
.........Last card/piece of story
To play
: The game is started by placing all cards randomly on the board in the slots where the graphics are to beplaced. Once this is done the person has to rearrange the cards in an order which seems to follow a story.
