1001 Odysseys is a game of epic space adventures. The first human faster than light ship, the Odyssey, sets out to explore a new sector of the galaxy after finding an operational alien stargate. Players take on the roles as the bridge crew of the Odyssey, as they find planets, meet strange new aliens, and eventually try to find the way back home!
Each time a group plays, they play through one chapter of a story: a co-operative adventure will result in a new chapter being unlocked for the next session. The chapters aren't linear though, your path will be determined by your choices. Each standalone book tells of one of the Odyssey's adventures through alien space, but they do not require the same set of players each time. No two playthroughs of a given story book will be exactly the same!
While playing, the Mission Control board tracks your progress through the Chapter. When the crew wants to do something, they combine the letters of an Action, Mission, and Location to form a code such as B-3-D4, and look up that paragraph in the book. After reading the paragraph's story and instructions, you'll advance your adventure one step, and have new options to choose from. Your journeys are recorded in a booklet called the Passport, which holds items, chapter data, and is the "save file" for the game.
1001 Odysseys comes with 4 story books, spanning approximately 400 pages. Each chapter can last anywhere from 30-75 minutes, depending on the group and size of the chapter.
