Product Description

Long before the sun rises in our lands, Aladdin and his friends are already busy, searching the Dragons' caves for treasure. Treasures they will take to the city to buy the magical artifacts available only in the Caliph's palace. Along the way, they may haggle with traders in the market and visit the magician to acquire his arcane spells. Taking treasures from dragons and dealing with traders and magicians may be interesting, but not as important as acquiring the Caliph's marvelous artifacts. And marvelous they are: flying carpets, magic lamps, keys to the palace, and other objects of power and wonder.

Although the rules for playing the game are simple, the strategies for winning are not. On every turn, a player must decide whether to concentrate on taking treasures, getting spells, or visiting the Caliph to barter for his artifacts.

Aladdin's Dragons is a game with subtle strategies to challenge the most ardent of game players. But the rules are simple and the game is fun and exciting for casual players.

May Allah be with you!

Fun but where is the theme?
January 08, 2004

A very clever and functional mechanism, very nice board and components. The theme however is non-existent or irrelevant. At no point did I have the feel that I was killing dragons, collecting treasures, entering the Palace or using Aladdins lamp. But then again this complaint is valid for most of Euro-German games.

 
 
 
 
 
Excellent Family Game...
February 24, 2002

I love it. The kids love it. My wife loves it... and that is saying quite a bit! Great game trying to outguess what others are guessing you'll think they are planning... if you catch my drift. Best with a group of people you know, it's fun for adults or for kids and adults. It's even easy to handicap advanced players; make the '8' a '1' marker for Dad, the '5' a '1' marker for Mom, and it gets a lot harder to beat the kids. One of my all time favorites.

 
 
 
 
 
Basic Game best avoided
September 30, 2001

Picked up a copy of this crowd favorite recently and tried it out--first the basic game, then the advanced game. Well, it was amazing that we played the advanced game, we were all rather bored after the sterile and flavorless play in the basic game.

With the addition of the spells and artifact effects, there is nothing for certain and there are 2 places on the game board that are now used, making the bidding phase a lot more interesting than the basic variation.

Quality gameboard graphics and nice components make for a nice visual as well as an interesting and easy to pick up game. I can't say that it was all that amazing, but I must say there were only 3 of us playing the game. More players probably makes a difference.
