Pet peeves? Almost nil, with many reviewers only praising Rory's Story Cubes. A few found the lack of instructions a little cumbersome, but many liked the freedom to create their own rules. Some reviewers wished for more cubes, but isn't it human nature to always want for more?!
Overall, for being a game comprised of no more than 9 cubes in a yellow box, Rory's Story Cubes really pack a lot of punch. Sturdy and compact, if you want to have maximum entertainment, think outside the box (pun intended)! Fun, creativity, and learning all rolled into one game. 'Nuff said.
