More a game than a book but I wondered if anyone has ever used it as a writing tool?

I know people used them for NaNo last year as part of the 'dares' idea.  Dare was to write 5,000 words then pick up a card until you reached 50,000.
I think they'd be good for a classroom setting where you give out random cards to everyone, then have them write a short story.  It's very similar to the plot generator on Script Frenzy.
