Using beautifully designed dragon cards, The Dragon Games appeals to all ages with four different easy-to-learn events: Formations, Matches, Connection and Battle. The events are fun to play. Each one is different.
Formations: Organise unruly dragons into ranks and groups.
Wranglers compete to organise their dragons quickly. A revealed attribute indicates the order or groups required. The fastest wrangler in each round increases their stock of dragons. False claims can lose dragons. Speed and accuracy win the day. The first wrangler to grow their stock to nine dragons wins.
Matches: Pair dragons with common attributes.
Wranglers compete for attribute cards by finding attributes that match in pairs of dragons. A wrangler claims the attribute card for one matching attribute. Attribute cards can be claimed from the pool in the middle or taken from other wranglers. Simple tactics and luck are needed. The first wrangler to collect enough attribute cards wins.
Connections: Finesse your dragons into their social network.
Wranglers compete to be the first to weave all of their dragons into a growing social network. Pairs of dragons connect according to relationships based on their attributes. These relationships are reflected by the connectors. Wranglers take turns placing connectors and a dragon, if they can, to form a complex social network. Tactics are essential - block other wranglers while enabling your dragons. The first wrangler to place all of their dragons wins.
Battle: Pit your dragons head-to-head with the other dragons.
Wranglers compete dragon-on-dragon. One wrangler chooses the type of battle Strength, the strongest wins. Height, the tallest wins. Age, the oldest wins. Breath, fire beats acid beats ice beats no dangerous breath. Behaviour, dangerous beats changeable beats friendly. The winner collects the cards to score. A draw sees all cards kept in the middle to jackpot for the next winner. Choose your battles wisely. The wrangler with the most cards when all battles are done wins.
Play a single event for a quick game, all events as a Tournament or take your time on a Grand Tournament to determine the Dragon Grand Champion of the world.
