Back to board games with this episode, where I do double-coverage by talking about both another paragraph-based game and another Eric Goldberg game. The game is Tales of the Arabian Nights, originally published by West End Games in 1985 and republished and revised by Edition Erlkonig in 1999. In this one, you and the other players take on roles from the Tales of Scheherazade and have adventures around Baghdad and the surrounding barbarian lands, only to return home with great stories, to meet your destiny, or even to become Sultan.

I’ve switched to using Garageband to do my sound recording and editing simply because Audacity isn’t terribly stable on the Mac. I think it sounds pretty good, but let me know if you notice any quirks — I’m still getting used to it.
