A collaborative storytelling game that seat 5-12 players and takes about an hour to play.

In an old high school, in the back corner of a hallway that goes nowhere, there is a birdcage full of Nightingales. It has stood there for as long as anyone can remember; students pass the hallway without paying much attention, but the birds long to help those they see in need.

Sometimes, a Student, looking for a quiet place to be alone with their feelings, will duck into the secluded hallway, and confess their woes to the cage as the Nightingales listen. The Students speak a few sad words to their own introspection, their facial expressions visible to the Nightingales that watch tenderly from inside the cage. Their little hearts yearn to encourage the young Students, and they are eager to help.

The Nightingales work together using their individual limited vocabulary of known human words to deliver advice, inspiration, and support. Sometimes the Nightingales’ combined song is just what the Student needed to hear, but other times the Nightingales are not able to get the message together in time and have to sadly watch the human walk away. Regardless, the Nightingales remain ever vigilant to assist any Student in need.

In the game, the player representing the Student will face the cage of Nightingales and express their dilemma. The Nightingales, always willing to help the struggling Student, will try and piece together a song to the help the Student. It is important in this game to remember how you say something (intonation, emphasis, cadence, etc...) is just as important as word choice for the Nightingales.

During the game, each player will play the Student once and spend the rest of the game rounds playing as a Nightingale.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
