Wait, you just put your marker on the action you want to take? Are we sure Feld designed this game?

However: Oh, right. The actions are randomly grouped together, and if you want to take an action from a group where someone else already took an action, you need to pay out the nose. Only the first player actually gets a free pick.

#62

Previously #46

Update: Some of the strategies here feel a bit like the Stone Age "starvation" strategy in which you ignore an integral part of the game and take the negative penalty simply because it's worth more points to do something else. However, that's kinda the whole point of In the Year of the Dragon. If you find a way to avoid every hardship, you probably did it at the expense of making points. The real reason for the relative drop is that shuffling the action cards every round is a whole lot left to randomness. Sometimes it hurts hard, but other times you get whatever you want.

In the Year of the Dragon will bite you unless you go out of your way to avoid it. And sometimes it's worth it to be bitten if you can make more points and take the hit. What a tough decision to have to make! This game will take away what you've built one turn at a time, and I've seen the player who won end the game in what seemed like the worst position of anyone. there is a huge amount of strategy because all the negative events are laid out at the beginning of the game. The actions you can take each round, however, will be shuffled and grouped randomly each round. Tension is so high throughout the whole game, which is something Feld's game can frequently lack. I think this may be Feld's heaviest game, or at least it's the one that can make you regret what you did several turns ago.

There's the tactics! It shows how great Feld designs games when a game as great as In the Year of the Dragon is still not his highest game on my list!

Used, in very good condition.

One "Young Warrior" tile is missing from the game. This is not an issue for 3- or 4-player games, as you remove one or two tiles during setup. For a 5-player game you need to return one of the 5 other warrior tiles to the supply after one is discarded, or use a placeholder chit.

Update: After contacting Rio Grande Games weeks ago, I received an email from them last night (4/21) and have ordered a replacement for this missing tile. I am hopeful that it will arrive before Geekway, if not, I will forward it on to the new owner of this game.

Game Condition:

This game has been played twice. Almost all components are accounted for (cards, person tiles, palace floors, coins, rice & fireworks tiles, event tiles, privilege cards and dragons). Components are in good to very good condition. Rules are in good to very good condition.

One item is unaccounted for. One of the clear dragon stands is missing.

Insert is in very good shape.

The game board is in decent shape. It does seem a bit warped (about 1/16 of an inch), but then every ItYofD board I've seen is warped in some manner.

I will include in this trade the original ItYotD game board. It's more warped than the new one in the game box. But, it's good for a backup.

Game comes from a non-smoking house.

Box Condition:

The game box top is slightly damaged. There is an indentation (about 1/32 of an inch) running down the left side of the box top parallel to the left side (say about 1/2 inch away). There is no major damage, but it is noticeable. Damage happened during shipping (poor box packing). The rest of the box has the usual small dings plus wear and tear at the box corners. This copy of the game is almost 10 years old.

Language/Edition Info:

Rio Grande Games edition from 2007. English-language rules and components (mostly the rules and game box).

Shipping:

Free shipping within the U.S.

This one makes some of the other games on this list look like a tea party. More than once, I have seen an entire player's tableau be completely wiped out. Can't pay your taxes? The emperor decapitates one of your people for each coin you are short. Talk about brutal. I love it.

Played this once, it felt unique and challenging, will probably keep an eye out for it in Math trades only.

Verdict - reading the comments, I think I already knew deep down inside that this was a pass. It is neat and a cool new way of playing, but my gaming group may find it just a little too depressing. We like to build towns and maps and routes, not be destroyed and mitigate disaster. If it ever crosses my plate at a discount, maybe.
