I’ve gushed a few times over how much I love Z-MAN Games’ Tales of the Arabian Nights, and have frequently had to apologize for doing so because the game is hard to find. However, it was announced on Z-MAN’s Facebook page this morning that Tales of the Arabian Nights is seeing a reprint! These games are currently being processed and sent to retailers who have been asking for them!
For those that don’t know, Tales of the Arabian Nights is a create-your-own-adventure type of board game in which you take on the role of an iconic figure from the Arabian area. With other players reading your fate calculated by your decisions and a matrix of page numbers, you will adventure across the Middle East exploring, fighting, and educating yourself on the world around you. Side quests can aid or deter you from your goal of achieving points needed before you get back to Baghdad!
A review for this game is coming sooner than later, especially because of this reprint announcement. This is a game that I’ve had to hunt down before to add to my library, but the prospect of being able to find it more readily makes me excited for other people to pick it up and play. So far, we don’t know if there are going to be any changes to the game with this reprint, but we will update this post later if that changes!
