A Thousand and One Nights is a game in which the players play Courtiers who in turn play characters in a story that everyone is collaborating to tell.
Mysterious strangers. Beautiful women. Enchanted swords. Talking camels. You play members of the Sultan's Court, whiling away the sultry nights by telling pointed stories to advance your own ambitions. Navigate the social maze and you could win your heart's desire; offend the wrong person and you suffer the Sultan's wrath.
