I love games of all types, especially games that stimulate the imagination. Perusing the ever intriguing games section at Barnes & Noble I found Rory's Story Cubes.
They come in a sweet little box that opens like a treasure chest. Each dice-like cube has eight little drawings of objects. You roll the cubes and set the nine cubes in any sequence you'd like to create a story.
I see from their website that they have "expansions" one for "actions" and one for "voyages".
This can be played alone or with others. I love the box quote:
