As Rüdiger Dorn's biggest fan, I want to provide a list of all his games, ordered by rating. I got my first Dorn game, Gargon, long before I knew how much I would come to adore his designs, and it's one of his less acclaimed titles; nonetheless, I was always struck by its uniqueness, and it had me on the lookout for more from someone with such interesting ideas....

If somehow I've omitted something from this list, please add it! (Keep in mind that they're sorted by average rating, so a title may not be where you expected.)

2001 Collect medallions by pitting fantastic creatures against one another; however the fights follow a very particular protocol, in that they will only fight their own kind, and only the strongest from each side will fight, until there's only one standing. So, by playing your cards in just the right combinations of colors (which correspond to the type of creature), you can manipulate your chances of winning. The real genius here is that the card backs have the same color as their fronts, so you can tell what creatures are in each person's hand, but not their strength. Of course, the weaker creatures are the ones with all the medallions....

2001 Each player has five numbered pawns, and a hand of three cards. From that hand, you use one card to select which pawn to move, and another one or two to determine how far you can move it. An elegant decision to have to make each turn. There's a little memory flexing, too, since certain action tiles can hide exposed action tiles and rotate the board 90°. It's a family game with choices, thinking, and only a little bit of spite....

1999 Elegant descendant of Mancala: Each player has three times three sizes of ships. You select a planet with one of your ships on it, and then they move out, leapfrogging one another. The large ones move out "first", then the medium, then the small, making the largest seem to move slowly. Try not to let your ships end up in the black holes! Once a player is eliminated, everyone gets 4 for each surviving large they have, 3 for each medium, and 1 for each small. Most points wins! Very simple mechanisms, with a little strategy and some tactics.

2014 — For some unfounded reason, I feel like this is somehow distantly related to Emerald. It probably isn't, but that's think inkling I got when reading the initial scant information.

It sounds like a game aimed at younger players with physical card position of the tabletop being a factor. Regardless, it's piqued my interest.
