Jim writes about the Forgotten Ones - Oasis

Oasis - created in 1999, the cover shows a caravan of camels travelling through the desert.

This is what I call a Multi-Age game because it can be played by the young, by middle years and by teens and adults.  All you need is contained in one box. No separate extensions to buy.  The game was extremely popular for about 5 years and then faded miserably when Middle Eastern troubles began to dominate the news.  Suddenly, gone was the magic and mystery of the Middle East.

I probably didn't help matters much by saying in the text on the label, "May Allah bless your journey a thousandfold!"  More than a few gamers told me to smarten up and delete any references to Allah.  Isn't it interesting how times change and every word can be a trigger!
