Just bought the new edition of this after I saw that it was being re-issued and it brought back so many memories after not playing it for over 20 years (19/02/11)

See Marco Arnaudo's video review of this game. You'll be running to your local game store to buy this one.

I loved this game. It kills me that it was lost during the Garage Sale of Doom.

I own the Flatlined Games edition, which has very high production standards.
Gameplay is good old-school fantasy strategy with an interesting asymmetrical warfare approach (two dragons vs. different military units).
In later scenarios, other monsters (Trolls, Giants, Orcs, etc.) add to the game.
Even campaigns are possible.

Classic and simple hex and chit fantasy warfare. The components on this re-release are outstanding. Nicely rounded, thick counters and as a bonus, a two sided board allowing for the humans to attack the monster encampment. Nice to see this reprinted after 30 years, giving me the opportunity to appreciate it the second time around.

A basic little game with a fair bit of chrome. Fun! See my session report.

Got mine new in 82. A favorite game when I was in my teens. Easy to learn and play. Used the chits for a lot of AD&D battles, too. I still have the counters, but unfortunately the map and rules disappeared when my mother purged many of my belongings after I moved out during college. Bought the new version in 2012.

big fearsome creatures burning a stronghold ... people on the wall shouting "DRAGONS" ... a retro hex&counter fantasy-war game nicely redone (2011) with well written rules ... for long-term motivation there are several scenarios with different creatures and even a campaign ... I wish there would be more such games. you can see the love put into the details of this game.

Pretty tough as the dragon player. Three plays and the invaders are yet to win.

Dragon seems to always have a quick start but slows down. As soon as the reinforcements come in its a very tough game for the invaders.

Fairly simple rules makes for a quick and fun game.

This one takes me way back. Production values are fantastic and the game play is very solid with a great deal of replay value. My son loves it over most of the ameritrash we have. Excellent!

Unlike the other Dwarfstar games I never hunted this one down, thinking it might be too limited. I now bought the new edition and find I was wrong, lime most of the others, it is chock full of variation on units, chrome and scenarios. Very clever fantasy take on the Ogre theme. Love the alternate Orc town map. Fast and furious, want to play this one again.

This is a fantastic little introductory hex and counter wargame. The theme is easy to latch onto for beginners, and the plethora of monsters makes the scenarios delightfully re-playable. Makes a good choice for solo gaming as well. The counters are nice and sturdy and easy to understand. Love it!

What a lot of fun! Yes, ok, if it had awesome miniatures, it would be even better. Also, it needs a thorough back story to add greater theme and depth of experience. But that aside, this is a very good game that’s competitive, easy to learn, with good quality, nice looking components. The layers of gameplay allow you to start simple and then dive deeper. The variety of scenarios, and forces make for loads of replay value. All in all, a very nice game.

Board and components very nice. Tons of theme in this game. Lots of cool scenarios with two different boards and several different types of invaders. Hard to win as the dragons though. Game play is relatively simple, but fun.

I will never eliminate this game. I may never play it again, but I like almost everything about it. It has aged and there are slicker, more evolved small games on the market, but this is a classic.

I loved this game when I was in high-school. Now, twenty five years later, I bought a copy on eBay. But I'm afraid to play it because the thin paper looks so fragile, the paper map is warped, and I would have to relearn the all the rules again.

But, O, the pleasant memories!

Played the game with a fiend back in the 80's. It was very fun then, but I would probably rate it lower today if I should play it.

I have a punched copy. Interesting gaming situation, like a siege but in a defined fantasy setting. I enjoyed it. I would like to get an unpunched copy if possible.
