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!

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.

 
 
 
 
 
Dumb Name, Great Game
May 09, 2001

I was really impressed with this one. I won't repeat what other people have already said and I will agree with the fact that the game can slow down if players take too long to bid. We found a remedy for that. We use a one minute timer. If you take longer then that, you don't get to lay a tile that turn. It's a big deal to lose a bidding space (even if it's your '1'), so it forces undicided people to act. Other than that minor issue, my family loves the game. I even got my mom to play something other then Rook and she ended up winning. Amazing.

A great family game - "Can teach the next door neighbor"
January 26, 2001

I find this game to be a good family game. This is a great game that anyone could teach the next door neighbor how to play. If you enjoy blind bidding games then you need to play Aladdin's Dragons.

How many people do you know who would 'waste' a bidding token on trying to become the first player? In this game I've seen it happen many times....
