It’s just a girl’s night in…a night of
margaritas, a board game and a chick flick…just the girls.
Quiet Renee has been best friends with hyper Candi and Over
the top Mina for almost ten years. It’s amazing how well the
three personalities blend. Amid the drinking and tales of
Mina’s latest stud-in-training, the three friends explore
the game Mina brought for them to play. Erotikos—an erotic
game for women where fantasy becomes reality.
The game is very unusual and oh so
intriguing. Each side of the game board is themed;
illustrated with the setting for each adventure and includes
pewter playing pieces that almost look real. Each player
acts out her adventure according to dice, game cards and the
placement of the game piece on the board. So each of the
women chooses her playing piece—Candi, the selkie; Mina, the
vampire; Renee, the Indian and they all agree to the terms
of the game. That’s when the orb in the middle of the game
board comes to life.
Erotikos makes playing
board games way beyond interesting. Why can’t I find a game
like that? Hmm? I like Ms. Leigh’s writing style and I am
glad to know I can visit her world anytime I want to. This
book is three stories inside a story and has something for
everyone. Plus, who says you can’t make up your own
fantasies using the other game characters and settings?
Fantasies come to life? Oh, yeah.
