Cheatwell wins gold for Tell-a-Tale Pirate

Published on: 24th June 2016

Tell-a-Tale Pirate has won gold in the Imagination Gaming Awards 2016.


The game won the gold award for Best Literacy Game.

The game uses four wooden dice to gently direct the story using the array of play figures on a wooden stage.

Cheatwell Games’ head of UK sales, Mark Jones, said: “We knew when our new product development team showed us this line that it was a fabulous pre-school product. There are some exceptional storytelling games already available, but Tell-a-Tale offers a little bit of structure to younger children – a bit like stabilisers on a bike. Winning this award really reinforces our decision – the team at Imagination Gaming do a fantastic job taking educational games into schools and after school clubs, so to get such an endorsement from them is praise indeed.”

Tell-a-Tale is also available in farmyard and fairytale editions.
