The old dragon Drakon has captured a brave band of adventurers who have sneaked into her lair to steal her gold. But rather than eat them immediately, Drakon has decided to make it a game: Greed shall set one of the adventurers free. She sends the frightened adventurers into her magical, mad, vaulted chambers, and the first one to collect ten gold from Drakon’s maze gets to go free. The rest get to be lunch!
This game may not appeal to serious gamers at first. But it is a game I have come to enjoy. Game starts out easy enough but quickly turns grim as your friends start to screw you over.
First you all start in one room with no where to go why? Because you must create the dungeon each turn you must place a tile or move and if you go first you will place a tile because you have nowhere to move. As the game progresses you will play and land on tiles both beneficial to you and ones that can hurt you. and you will also place tile to hurt your opponents and you must watch out for drakon the dragon as you and your opponents can move her. The first to collect 10 gold wind the rest become dragon food. This is a good game and is fast paced highly recommended.
Just finished my 4th game of Drakon. It was quick and easy to learn. I played with my wife and 2 kids and we had a ball. In todays hectic pace of life its hard to find time just to read the rules of a game. It took about 10 minutes to get a game going. If your a fan of Fantasy games at all this is a must buy.
I first tried Drakon a few weeks ago at a friends house and bought the game my self this weekend.
The game is setup differently every game as all players start in the starting chamber and from then on tries to build the dungeon from there.
In Drakon you are trying to outsmart your opponents by disrupting their paths to the gold and at the same time get enough gold yourself to win the game!
I have played Drakon quite a few times now and once you have played the game once, your next game is even better when you understand all the devious mechanics and uses of the different chambers.
I can strongly recommend Drakon to all players. Especially if you like to mess up your friends plans as you play. As I see it this is a true classic.
A jolly Jolly game. The dragon's prison starts as a single tile where heroes are held. One tile added per turn extends it unpredictably into impermanent corridors where heroes search for freedom and victory. Moving your hero to an adjacent tile forces him to obey its instructions. Directional arrows restrict movement and turn the array into a wicked maze. Destination tiles increase or decrease your supply of coins, chaotically rearrange the array, or let you move another's hero to endure the consequences. Escape and win by collecting five coins. Even jollier is the version in which each hero has a special power to use just once!
