Shahrazad - Tarot Storia
« on: January 10, 2019, 12:42:54 PM »
Hi everyone!

Besides being a tarot enthusiast, I am also a board game geek and wanted to share a cute little discovery of mine... I came across this simple game called "Shahrazad", which is supposed to be about fairy tales from around the world. But the names of the 22 tiles (visible through the link below) more than rings a bell for you and me  ;)

I thought that if there are other tarotistas who like board games around, they might be interested! It's a very simple game where you have to lay the tiles one after the other in a certain way so as to score as many points as possible. It's also one of those little games you can play by yourself during a little break.

I’m a board game geek too! Love the look of this one. Will add it to my wish list. :)

This looks really cool! Thanks, Styx!
Inspiration move me brightly
Light the song with sense and color
Hold away despair
More than this I will not ask
Faced with mysteries dark and vast ✨

In the middle of winter I at last discovered that there was in me an invincible summer 🌻

I'm very glad if I could help fellow geeks!  ;D
Of course the downside (but is it one?) is that you can't help reading something into the tiles you draw. I played a few games the other night and drew the Emperor first in every round. I almost felt like I should write it in my tarot journal.  ;D

The art in this is so sweet!  I'd love a complete tarot deck in this style.   <3

It looks lovely. How come the Amazon listing says there are 21 tiles, though ? there are 22 in the image there...

There are cheap ones up there. I shall bite ;)

Gregory, it must be a mistake in the listing; I own the game (of course I do, two of my three buying demons in one object) and there are twenty-two tiles, from the Fool to the World.

Indeed it is an error. There are 22. I think it's lovely :)

Fellow BGGer and solo player here. I've seen the game mentioned previously, but obviously didn't take a good enough look at it at the time. I shall do so now. Thanks for the recommendation!

Oh, I just remembered... Y'all may also want to also check out this solitaire card game: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/202821/fools-journey. All you need is a tarot deck and the rules. I've got them printed but still haven't gotten around to giving it a go. :-[

You're welcome! I actually know the Fool's journey and have played it A LOT last year (I had a long train commute). Also a nice way to get acquainted with a deck.

I'm clearly a bit thick - I can't figure out the rules as posted on that site...

I need to sit down and look at the rules also.  I glanced at them and realized, a glance won't do it!
