A Friday Evening of Tales of the Arabian Nights

As mentioned in yesterday's blog, the Friday night group of players did come out to play. However, since I had only just received my copies of the Coriolis - The Third Horizon RPG materials from the Kickstarter, we weren't able to play that on Friday night.

When the various players arrived, all by about 7:10 pm, the first thing they noticed was the "terrible" (one player even used the word "nasty") odour of the Coriolis - The Third Horizon game products. That said, they did "ooh" and "aah" over the books, and loved what they saw, but we quickly turned our attention to discussing the week's events and then decided on what to play for the evening. "To get us into the mood of the sci-fi rpg" (as they all stated one way or the other), the players decided they wanted to board game - specifically the Tales of the Arabian Nights game that we've enjoyed in the past.

I'm not going to go into detail about the game, but suffice to say that we managed to play a complete game in around 3-1/2 hours or so, we didn't rush things, and just had fun watching the characters suffering the slings and arrows of Fate, Arabian Nights style.

Suffice it to say, I got cursed, haunted, imprisoned, shape-changed into an animal, and Lost in the game (several times), but I did manage to go to a magnificent mystical place (where I got shape-changed, by the way). I didn't win the game, DavidM did, but I couldn't have cared less as I was having so much darn fun and just having a relaxing evening, enjoying the adventures and mishaps of my character (and those of the other players and their characters).

It's been a while since I got to play this game, and an enjoyable night was had all around. Tales of the Arabian Nights certainly hit the right spot for me last night, again. :)
