Happy Birthday Robot

Happy Birthday robot is a wonderful little game for children. It teaches cooperation and creativity in a great non cloyingly way. Basically the game has every one taking turns telling the story of Robot's birthday. Each story starts with the sentence "Happy Birthday Robot," then everyone takes turn as the story teller. The story teller rolls dice to see how many words he or she can write down. Some of the dice will go to the person to the left and right of the story teller. Don't have enough words for what you want? If you ask nice people will give you words represented as pennies. Eventually a story will emerge and it looks like good fun for a rainy afternoon!
