A Christmas Eve 25-Word Story

It's Christmas Eve, and we have the perfect card for the occasion, but we need YOU!

There are so many good Christmas Movies out there (my own favorites being Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story and Home Alone), but I think we can make the next great Christmas movie.

This isn't going to be easy though, we're limited to just 25 Words. :)

Let's make a 25-Word Story based off of the 3 of Diamonds.

Add your story to the comments below!


If you've never made a 25-Word Story, they are a lot of fun. Here are Gaetan Pappalardo's rules from our downloadable Storyteller Manual:

25 Word-Stories
by Gaetan Pappalardo

Choose a Storyteller Card and write a mini story that is exactly 25 words long.

  • For younger players or beginners try to use a maximum of 20-25 words instead of the exact count.
  • Try to squeeze a problem into the mini story.
  • A great way to create quick writing ideas for longer stories.
  • Exercises the mind's eye to produce creative scenes from different perspectives.
  • Helps beginning writers to formulate story elements on the spot.
Try it yourself!
