Once upon a daub there was a charmed storybook, adored by all in the enchanted town of Evermore.
A tiny town nestled deep in the green land of Heartfordshire, Evermore was in a distant Bristonian land that had been seized and harshly ruled by the Queen of Newland for many years.
“The Queen,” as she was known, drank tea all day whilst reading Agatha Christie novels. She hated whimsical fiction and was robe deep in who-done-it mystery books.
Since The Queen wished to read in pure suspense, the sound of happy children’s laughter really ruffled her royal feathers.
One early morn, a Newland messenger of the Court returned from his travels in Bristonia.
Hoping to score some extra Token points with The Queen, he mentioned, “My Queen! There is a storybook of fairy tales that the children of Evermore, in fair Heartfordshire, draw great pleasure from. I believe that is the sound of laughter that travels over the Isle of Man to interrupt your reading of who-done-its!”
“Reeeeally? Well, loyal man of the Court. Prove your loyalty by destroying said storybook. I want no more sounds of laughter interrupting my reading!”
The messenger was eager to climb the royal ladder.
He took off the next day, making his way back to Evermore. Taking up residence in the local pub, he quickly befriended the bartender.
“Where pray tell is that lovely book of fables kept? The one the children love so much?” He not-so-casually implored.
The unknowing bartender cheerily replied, “Oh the storybook you mean? Young children of Evermore love fairy tales! Children in this town have a fairy tale read to them every day at school – if they are well behaved!”
That was all the eager messenger needed.
Quickly, he gathered his things and crept off into the foggy night.

Early the next morning, the schoolchildren were filing into the school building.
“Who is that golden-haired maiden, sparkling on the school rooftop?” a young boy shouted.
The teachers glanced up to see long blonde hair dangling from the top of the school’s tower.
“Oh my! ’Tis Rapunzel!” The group of children cried.
“And here. LOOK! A glass slipper!” a shocked little girl screamed. A group of little girls began to ogle the transparent shoe.
The teachers suddenly began to worry. “My…oh dear…we must check the library right this moment!” they shouted.
The teachers marched toward the library with the school children in tow.
And what an astonishing sight they stumbled upon!
A beanstalk was growing rapidly upward and had already cracked open the roof of the library. Off to the side, a young woman was visibly sleeping across the floor. She wore a pale blue gown. A shiny red apple quietly rolled away from her.
“The fairy tales are running amok!” the teachers quickly realized.
“But who will rescue them” cried a wee boy, “and fix the storybook?!”
He pointed to a pile of viciously torn paper.
One of the teachers stepped forward, picking up the torn cover of the fairy tales book. She cried, “An intruder must have ripped apart our beloved book. Now someone must collect the fairy tales and piece their stories back together for a happy ending!”

  1. Cute story; good to have some additional fun back-story. Thanks to whomever took the time to put this all together.

  2. DEAR ANGEL,
    I JUST POSTED A RATHER LENGTHY REPLY HERE AND IT’S GONE; JUST LIKE THE OTHER POST RE: EARLIER REGARDING THIS GAME. DON’T KNOW WHY MY COMMENTS ARE DISAPPEARING?
    PAM
    OKAY, I JUST NOW NOTICED YOU HAVE FIELDS ABOVE THAT NEEDED TO BE FILLED OUT. THAT MUST HAVE BEEN THE REASON MY COMMENTS DIDN’T GO THROUGH AS I NEVER FILLED THEM OUT; HECK I NEVER EVEN NOTICED THEM! DID YOU POST A MESSAGE ALERTING US TO THIS CHANGE OF PACE AND THE REASON FOR IT? IF SO, PLEASE DIRECT ME TO IT. THANK YOU.
    PAM

    • Sorry Pam, there have been no changes on our end. I’m not sure why your comment won’t go through. The required fields have always been the same (name, email.. website optional of you have one). If you’re having issues with the game though, it’s best to reach out to Player Services.

  3. I’d play it more often, but it keeps freezing on me. This has been happening a lot lately. This site used to be wonderful; without any problems. I don’t know what has happened. I feel I’ll never get to the 1,000,000,000 because it freezes (last time 3xs in a row) and I gave up . another day, I couldn’t even get it to appear. My internet connection was excellent so it wasn’t on my side. Please fix.

    • I’m sorry you’re having difficulties. If you have not already, please contact Player Services for assistance, and let them know what is happening. To contact them click on GSN Help at the top of the main http://www.gsn.com page, then look for the green “contact support” button at the top of the help page.

    • Try uploading google chrome if your using internet explorer. I had huge problems but just uploaded google chrome and everything is working fine now!

  4. DEAR ANGEL,
    OBVIOUSLY, MY POSTS ARE NOW GOING THROUGH. I BELIEVE I UNDERSTAND WHAT MAY HAVE HAPPENED. FOR SOME REASON THE FIELDS ABOVE WERE NOT AUTOMATICALLY FILLED IN AS USUAL; SOMETHING I DID NOT NOTICE UNTIL THIS LAST MESSAGE ABOVE IN WHICH “I” FILLED IN THE MARKED FIELDS AND HENCE YOU RECEIVED MY MESSAGE. I WENT AND CHECKED OTHER AREAS THAT I HAVEN’T POSTED AND THEY ARE FILLED IN PROPERLY AWAITING MY REPLY. SO IT SEEMS THIS WAS JUST A TEMPORARY GLITCH. UNFORTUNATELY, I NO LONGER HAVE THE WHERE WITH ALL TO REPEAT MY OTHER MESSAGES. SUFFICE TO SAY THAT THEY WERE FILLED WITH ACCOLADES FOR THIS NEW “ONCE UPON A DAUB” VIDEO BINGO GAME!! I COMPLETED IT ON THE 28TH WITHOUT ANY HITCHES OR GLITCHES; YEA!!!
    PLEASE CONVEY MY COMPLIMENTS TO THE WONDERFUL ARTIST/S WHO HAVE DONE WONDERS WITH THEIR MAGICAL COLOR COMBINATIONS; EVEN INCLUDING THE PURPLE “LOADING” RECTANGLE ON THE COLORFUL INTRODUCTION PAGE! I ALSO MUST MENTION HOW DELIGHTED I WAS WITH THE BACK OF THE BINGO CARDS!! ALL OF THE ARTISTIC THINGS THAT WENT INTO THIS GAME GAVE A COMPLIMENTARY INVITATION TO PLAY!! I DO KNOW THIS WAS A TEAM EFFORT AND IF I COULD I WOULD SEND YOU ALL A CASE OF THE “BUBBLY” IN CELEBRATION!! YOU ALL DESERVE A RAISE; OR AT THE VERY LEAST AN AWARD FOR YOUR OUTSTANDING EFFORTS (INCLUDING YOU ANGEL DEAR. 🙂 ) MANY THANKS FOR A GREAT GAME EVERYONE!! 🙂
    MOST SINCERELY,
    PAM
