Weave a tale older than the stars themselves.

Open this box, and join the storytellers of old. Before there were Stars... is a storytelling game where each player tells the mythic creation story of ‘their people.’ Featuring star-pipped dice that are rolled to form the ‘night sky,’ one scans the stars for constellations to use as keywords for the story. Inspired by Constellation cards, players craft tales about the creation of the world, the origins of civilization, the rise of their great hero, and an end of days.


  • This ‘feel good’ game lets players appreciate the boundless imagination in all of us.

  • Points are awarded for best story moments, allowing everyone to shine, regardless of their skill as a storyteller.

  • Perfect for couples, wine parties and game nights, with high quality components that feel appropriate for the evening.

  • The most approachable and warmest storytelling game we've ever seen - and a breath of fresh air that never repeats itself, except in the fun and warmth of emotion it brings to your table.
