The company has partnered with The Creativity Hub to supply the range to the UK market.
Rory’s Story Cubes was developed by Irish designer Rory O’Connor as a creative problem solving tool for adults back in 2004. Rory’s Story Cubes has grown to become a very popular game amassing over 7 million sales worldwide since its launch in 2007.

We look forward to building on the fine work which has already gone into making Rory’s Story Cubes a huge success in the UK and the rest of the world. We feel now is the right time for us to take the game to the next level here in the UK.”
Rory O’Connor, inventor and co-founder of The Creativity Hub, commented: “We are excited to be working with Esdevium Games in 2017. Our mission is to connect people of all ages and backgrounds through the playful act of storytelling. We know that by working with Esdevium, we will reach a wider audience who have yet to discover the simple joy that comes from playing Rory’s Story Cubes.”
