Spooky Story Dice is a creative tool to prompt ideas for plot, character, and setting. This idea generator can be used effectively for both written and oral storytelling.
SPECIAL HALLOWEEN LIMITED EDITION of our app Story Dice.
Spooky Story Dice is ideal for kids old enough to enjoy a spooky story. Really, the age limit is set by the storyteller. Ages 9+ would enjoy this the most!
The user interface is simple enough for anyone to use. The use of the app does not require reading, so it is an ideal tool for using in a story circle (see lesson plans) as well as a general writing prompt without reading or native language barriers.

Ratings and Reviews
Fun story prompt tool
If you are on the fence about buying the story dice app, this Spooky Dice app is a nice way to test drive the concept for a cheaper price.
For horror and science fiction writers, this may be enough for you to get ideas rather than the slightly more expensive story dice app. I was surprised to see an axe as one of the options for something rated for users 9 and older. During that roll I got a cat and an axe which made me think of a cat who is an axe-wielding serial killer!
Clearly the dice are doing the job if my imagination is running this wild. Only wish we could add in more dice like the other app, but again this is a less expensive app.
Try it, especially if you are thinking of getting the main dice app. I am still on the fence about the main app, but am glad to have Spooky Dice in my bag of tricks.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
