The Magic of Scheherazade

Note #1: On some of the manual pages, you might be able to see the other side of the page faintly showing through. Unfortunately, sometimes my scanner is a little too good at picking up faint lines and colors. I did what I could to reduce it so that it wouldn't be obtrusive or make the pages unreadable. I did not include the back of the manual since it's just a blank page with Culture Brain's old American address.

Note #2: I have listed the title of each manual page by the page numbers in case you're looking for a particular page on a particular subject of the game. Please do not ask me to put them all into a zip file because my host does not allow them. If you were to try to download a zip or rar file from this site, you'd only get an "Access Forbidden" error.

Note #3: The map that came with the game is so large, I had to scan it twice and stitch the two halves together. It was extremely difficult to get them to line up perfectly. As such, I had to scan the lower right corner a separate time and re-insert it. It's still not quite perfect, and there's a bit of a color inconsistency, but it's the best I could do. Also, I apologize, but apparently I marked up the map a little when I first played this game many years ago.
