Tales of the Arabian Nights
From the Publisher...
In Tales of the Arabian Nights, you are the hero or heroine in a story of adventure and wonder just like those told by Scheherazade to her spellbound sultan! You will travel the land seeking your own destiny and fortune. You will learn stories and gain wisdom to share with others. Will you be the first to fulfill your destiny? The next Tale is yours to tell! There is, of course, a winner in Tales of the Arabian Nights, but the point of the game is less to see who wins and more to enjoy the unfolding and telling
of a great story!
In this new edition of the groundbreaking storytelling game, you enter the lands of the Arabian Nights alongside Sindbad, Ali Baba, and the other legendary heroes of the tales. Travel the world encountering imprisoned princesses, powerful 'efreets, evil viziers, and such marvels as the Magnetic Mountain and the fabled Elephant's Graveyard.
Choose your actions carefully and the skills you possess will reward you: become beloved, wealthy, mighty - even become sultan of a great land. Choose foolishly, however, and become a beggar, or be cursed with a beast's form or become insane from terror! YOU will bring to life the stories of the inestimable Book of Tales in this vastly replayable board game with over 2002 tales that will challenge, amuse, astound and spellbind you for years to come.

|Immerse yourself in a faraway place where you'll meet interesting characters, have amazing encounters, and earn skills, statuses and treasures. More of a storytelling or role-playing game, than a competitive one, "Tales" is a terrific way to spend an hour or two. In my last game I ended up imprisoned as a diseased, wounded outlaw - but it was still incredible fun!
|If you love story telling then this is the game for you. A reprinting of a classic game that has nice components. This game promises a night of humor and fun. You will be retelling the stories from you night of adventure. Z-Man Games - Thank you!
|While this ended up not being my cup of tea, the story-telling aspect of this game is very unique and made a lot of fans amongst my friends. Play this game with the mindset that you are developing a story rather than trying to use your strategy and you should have a blast!
|This game really falls into its own category, almost more of a role-playing game that everyone can enjoy than a board game with competition and win conditions. It's got a great system with huge replayability, and every person I've played with has always come away wanting to play again. For a game that takes 3+ hours to finish, that's saying something!
