Don't hang around, 'cause two's a crowd on my cloud, baby.

I had a dream last night, and I thought I'd share it here.

About six people were gathering to play a board game, and as I listened I got the impression they might be interested in a variant that I had either found or created and then stored away. I ran off to find it.

Sorting through piles of games in my closet, I finally located this Magic Realm variant. It was a simple set of rules--something suitable for people who don't play MR.

When I returned to the table, the people had finished setting up and were about to begin. They seemed interested, so I began to explain the MR variant. I showed them the character cards and told them how they can be used in this other game.

The other game on the table that they were about to play? Monopoly!

It was some kind of fantasy-themed Monopoly, but it was still just a roll-and-move game. Yet my rules provided a way to let players use the MR characters and some of their abilities during the game. I thought of it as a way to introduce newcomers to the game--pique their interest. And some people at the table did look interested.

Sounds like you actually pulled out a copy of Talisman.
