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

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 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.

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.

Well, this isn't the most strategic or tactical game. But what it is, is FANTASTIC!!! Why? Because it's something that I can explain to my son in 10 minutes and finish playing in 20 minutes, and we both have a GOOD time.
My son (now 13) is not a boardgamer per se he's a video gamer ). But I can twist his arm every now and then to play a variety of games (especially if it involves some of his friends), even more complicated ones like Power Grid.

The real problem stems from THEME/RULES. If the game has a mediocre theme with longer / more complicated rules, I see his mind drifting off. Hey, even I have to force myself to pay attention during rules explanations by others.

Where this game shines is the simple set of rules, awesome theme, and quick play time. That makes this game a WINNER in my book.

Lovely and really light two player game. What you pop up when you want to quench your thirst for a game and don't want to burn a lot of gray matter on it. Tactical, for the most part, it is the kind of game where you want to play matches or a set of matches.

Excellent. Very well balanced two player face off. Whether you play as the dragon or the dwarves you will win or lose by your own choices. Great theme that really suits the gameplay. Nice artwork. The geek rating of 6.3 is a bit harsh. At the price you pay for this I guarantee it will hit the table far more than some games you 4x for. One of my 2 player go to games.

Underappreciated (or under-available?) asynchronous game. Seems well-balanced and very tense throughout. Feels a bit odd that the dragon's best strategy is one of avoidance - but this doesn't detract once you have a few games played.

Nice to see now on yucata.de (though unsure how I feel about being able to see the card remaining counts for each side)...and still hoping that the was-in-development expansion (Troll vs. Elves!) sees the light of day.

Highly recommended.

Perfecto! Es un juego que ocupa exactamente el nicho que tenia para él: Un juego para 2 jugadores, rápido, táctico y con cierta miga. Es un juego tenso hasta el final, hasta las últimas jugadas no se consigue saber quien es el ganador, pues pueden haber remontadas bastante épicas.
Un juego que no defrauda.
Por decir algo malo: En la caja, caben como 5 copias del juego perfectamente, se han pasado bastante con el aire xD

Good fun game. Love the setting of 3 dwarfs against a badass dragon but that the dragon has to actually play defensive. I can see how the game can depend a lot on the card draw, but if you start with a crappy hand you know that at some point this will invert to a good hand.

Overall very good fun. Looking forward for more plays.

- Good fun in little time
- Cool theme
