Osprey Bringing Tarot Storia To US As Shahrazad

Osprey Publishing is bringing the 2015 game Tarot Storia by Yuo (Yu Ogasawara) to the North American market as Shahrazad. In Shahrazad, 1 player or 2 players cooperatively take turns laying tiles building a folk-tale tableau. Tiles are played in an overlapping bricks pattern, and at the end of the game a single path is traced through touching tiles from left to right, telling a story. Tiles to the right must be of higher number or they are flipped over. Stories are scored for groups of colors, and are penalized for turned cards or gaps in the tableau. The game comes with 22 beautifully illustrated oversized tiles, and a scoring sheet.

Shahrazad is expected to be in stores May 20, 2017.
