Welcome to Speedy Piran

Free interactive family adventure stories that help you discover more about Cornwall



This is the list of KernoCards. The 'no effort' Cards are available below by clicking on the card image in the lists below. Any KernoCards with an image of a story next to it means that it needs to be 'earned' by reading the Speedy Piran story and finding the card. Each images contains a link to the story, and sometimes the KernoCard can be earned in more than one story.

The KernoCards are PDF files so they can be saved and viewed on any modern mobile phone or tablet. They can be saved into any PDF reader such as Kindle or iBooks apps (the website links work in iBooks).

The KernoCard game

When you have a few KernoCards in your collection, you will notice that each card has up to three related KernoCards on it. The game is to 'play' a card (youngest starts), then the next person must follow with a card from the related ones. Any player that puts down a card that can not be followed earns a point. The person who earned the point then starts again with another KernoCard of their choice.

To play the game electronically (as if you would print them out!) I recommend a pad and paper to write down the chain of cards played to ensure none are repeated. The game works best with several devices so each player can look in their own collection of cards in the Kindle app or iBooks. Email me for help, advice or comments on hello @t speedypiran.co.uk
