Kudos to Adam Kaluza for being able to create a game so heavily asymmetric, yet truly balanced.
Great fun and challenging hand management, while also watching the board positions.
Some extra plus points for the graphics and theme, the pictures are one of the best I've seen in board games and the miniatures crave coloring.

A great, thematic asymmetrical game. Really it's like an abstract game in some ways but they did a great job with the theme. It is really easy to teach, it plays fast, and players seem to catch on quickly. Players I've introduced it too have requested further games. The components are both attractive and effective. They're easy to differentiate and help to draw players into the theme. Game endings seem to be close, but sometimes feel as if they are partially determined by the way the decks were dealt. Replayability might be the only concern, but so far I'm still getting a kick out of it.

Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving. Pratchett

Part of the generous FTL Secret Santa 2014 huge package!

This is a very neat game and not as simple as one may think. A great treat if you want to play and think.

I absolutely love this game! It's very fast to setup, fast to play, very intense to the very last second and very well balanced. And it's got some nice miniatures above all other good things

I think it's perfect 2-player game.
-fast
-easy rules
-asymmetrical, but balanced
-great theme
-some randomness, but you can minimise pretty much
It can be easy game to play even with children, but for 2 experienced players it is quite hard game with a lot of thinking. You have to manage your hand and prepare some combos. Both players have separate card decks so there is no situation that one is drawing all the best - if you have at the moment better hand than oponent it will change very quickly.
And I love the idea of 2 actions per turn.

I recommend this as the best 2-player, fast game which you can use as a filler or play multiple duels in row.

Very nice filler. Asymetrical fight for casual players. Experienced players could feel disapointment for random card draw, but this game is casual-oriented and as a quick and nice filler and it fits its role perfectly.

Played 15-20 times. Rated a 9 after 4 plays with the son (aged 6). He loves it, and he likes to discuss tactics even after a loss, which is always a good sign. The miniatures are great, playing time is just right.

Clever game. Considering play time and easy setup this is must have game and one of the best for 2 player. Believe me, there is a lot of strategy involved as well.

Rule variant (making it easier for dwarf player): Dragon must kill at least one dwarf to win the game. In this variant, game does NOT end when only dwarf card pile is depleted (both card piles must be depleted to end the game).

An excellent mini game. I love the feature that I have been longing to see in a boardgame, the fact that you can target specific areas of an opponent and cripple his corresponding abilities.

Drako jest jak szwajcarski scyzoryk; śliczny, praktyczny i każdy chce go mieć ...ale kiedy trzeba coś zreperować to i tak idziemy po skrzynkę z narzędziami.
...i taka jest właśnie ta gra - krzyżówka planszówki, karcianki i bitewniaka. Pięknie wykonana (nie licząc wypraski...detal), szybka w setupie, tłumaczeniu zasad i samej rozgrywce ...idealna jeśli nie mamy kilku godzin na "Twilight-a ..." i tylko młodszą siostrę za przeciwnika (oczywiście w roli Smoka)

Divertente, ben curato nella grafica e nei materiali, bella l'ambientazione; un gioco da cui sicuramente non ci si può aspettare grandissima longevità oppure grandissimi meccanismi, ma nella sua semplicità mi ha affascinato, con il suo concetto semplice e la sua immediatezza era proprio quello che mi aspettavo da una piccola perla come questa
Non indispensabile, ma non sono neanche soldi buttati, quindi se lo trovate (anche a poco) prendetelo

Drako is an asymmetrical game for two players, with one player leading a team of three dwarves who are experienced dragon hunters and the other playing a red dragon that has spread terror amongst local peasants. The dwarves have managed to trap the dragon in a shady valley at the foot of the mountain where it lives – apparently dragons can't resist the smell of freshly slaughtered sheep – but despite being in chains, the dragon is still young and ferocious, providing the dwarves with the difficult task of killing it without being killed themselves.

A fast playing cat and mouse game using lovely minis.

Assymetric abstract, lovely production. Sides definitely play differently. I like it.

They could have printed the player boards on the game board and made the box about 1/4 of the size ... would have been much more portable.

Very nice 2 player wargame. One plays the dragon and the other plays the 3 dwarves. The Dragon is bigger and stronger but the 3 dwarves have a better combined strength. You use cards to define what actions you will take. It seemed extremely well balanced. But it if you like light wargames.

This has gone up in my estimation on further plays. It provides quick, tense, and interesting duels.

With an infrequency of playing, Drako is a terrific game with appealing decisions.

I would have been more enchanted by the game if the participants had all been gladiators in an arena, but I still like what it offers.
