A Solid Gold House!

As I’ve gotten older and wiser to the intricacies of Board Gaming, I’m finding that I need more theme in my games.

I picture the writer of the Book of Tales trapped in a dungeon by an evil Vizier, ready to be killed at a whim, his life only being prolonged by his constant insistence that he’s almost done writing the book.
