Ah, the diabolical Dice … a word of caution; don't throw them when you're alone. The fiends lack loyalty, and their notion of nourishment is quite disturbing.

I just received the game today. Does anyone have an English translation of the rules that they can post? Thanks.

That's on top of my to-do-list.
Here's the short rap so you can start playing.

(1) Decide how many Dragons you want to hunt. Shuffle the intended number of Dragon cards and make a face-down stack. Reveal the top card. This is the dragon you play for in the trick.
(Normally, you play all 30 dragons. But for shorter games, you can play 15 or whatever)

(2) Shuffle the Hunting Cards. Deal 5 to each player.

(3) Each player chooses one of her/his cards and plays it simultaneously face-down in front of her/him.

(4) All cards are turned up simultaneously.

(5) The cards are applied by ascending number.
(5.1) Cards with one/two swords do one/two wounds to the dragon
(5.2) Cards with one/two nets try to catch the dragon
(5.3) Cards with one sword and one net first do one wound to the dragon, than try to catch it

(6) The player with the clinching sword (i.e. the third sword for a 3-sword Dragon) claims the Dragon
(6.1) If a clinching number of nets are applied AFTER the clinching sword was applied, the player playing the clinching net steals the dragon.

(7) If not enough sowrds ae played in the first round of the trick, the swords are applied, the nets discarded, and each player plays another card.

(8) As soon as the dragon is captured, each player draws up to 5 cards. Reveal the next Dragon card.

Follow the examples in the rules:
Example 1: Groda (2 swords, 1 net)

Rasmus plays: 60 (sword)
Bernd plays: 13 (sword)
Lennart plays: 30 (net)
Yvonne plays: 63 (2 nets)

13 goes first, wounding the dragon the first time. Nothing happens yet.
30 comes next, tries to catch the Dragon. But it's not beaten yet (the clinching sword hasn't been played yet), so nothign happen
60 comes next, wounding the Dragon a second time. as this Dragon can only hols 2 swords, this is the clincher.
63 comes last. As the dragon is already beaten, Yvonne can steal the dragon.

Example 2: same cards, different dragon
Pumpernickel need 3 swords. As there were just 2 swords in the first round of the trick, the number of swords on his card are reduced by these 2 swords, and each player plays a new ard. Now, you need just 1 sword to clinch and 1 net to steal.

Example 3: (back to Exmple 1, but Yvonne plays the 78 sword instead)
In that case the dragon was already clinched by Rasmus' 60, so the 78 ist just too late, and Rasmus keeps the Dragon.
