Osprey Games’ Shahrazad Board Game Coming In May

The story of Shahrazad is an interesting one, which is quite fitting considering the tales she must weave to stay alive. Well, Osprey Games are bringing it to the tabletop in May.

Shahrazad

“A solo and cooperative tile-laying game. Players will help Shahrazad tell stories to pass another night by playing tiles featuring unique takes on iconic fairy-tales to construct the best story.

Each turn players will play a single tile, then draw a tile, building a folk-tale tableau. With twenty-four oversized, fully illustrated tiles in a deluxe package Shahrazad is a beautiful gift package for couples, or parents and children. Placing certain story types together will grant players more points, but telling a story in the wrong order will drastically limit their options.”

It sounds like a nice twist on the storytelling tabletop game using these tiles instead of cards or an alternative method. This format seems to focus in more on there being some more mechanical aspects to your play, helping to structure the story.

The artwork for this looks beautiful too and it could make for a fascinating addition to a collection.
