Product Description

In Dragon's Hoard, each player plays a dragon hunting for treasure. Collect sheep from the farmer's fields and use them to buy treasures, but watch out! Other players will send angry mobs and wizards your way to stop you. Defend yourself and battle your way to riches.

In game terms, players draft cards from a common draw pile before taking their actions. You want to buy as many treasures as you can. Dragons buy treasures with sheep that they've collected, while opponents will play terrible actions against you to keep you from tendering those sheep. Battle to keep your treasure, while trying to stop your opponents from doing the same.

At the end of the game, the player with the most victory points from treasures and bonuses wins!

A nice little game.
February 12, 2014

I've only played this game two-player with my wife, and we both enjoy it. We were both won over by the art right away. The smug looks on the sheeps' face is simply excellent. The game play is pretty simple and it only took a brief overview of the rules to get us started. Each turn a player draws two cards from either the deck or the line-up, and then may play a treasure and an action card. A person can choose to do both, or neither, but neither one twice. At first we tried to play the game like Ticket to Ride trying to save up big sets to turn in. Then we realized the action cards are simply too aggressive to allow for this sort of relaxed play. This wasn't really a bad thing since there's almost always something for a player to do, and a person with less than four cards in hand gets to draw three for the turn. Having to discard half a hand will still sting, but it's pretty easy to recover.

The game takes about 30 minutes for two players. Attacking an opponent is often an option, but it in no way feels necessary. It's really nice getting to make a few aggressive plays without knocking the opponent out of the game.

This game is a really nice balance of simple set collection and action/attack cards. Being able to turn any card in as part of set means there's also a certain amount of push-your-luck, while no card is ever dead in hand. I think it's certainly worth getting a copy just to test out, and you could always fill a picture frame with those smug sheep if the game isn't for you.
