Dare to enter Dragonwood! Deep in the heart of this mythical forest lurk angry ogres, giggling goblins, and even the famed and fearsome fire-breathers themselves! Collect sets of adventurer cards to earn dice, which you will use to roll against your foes. Stomp on some fire ants, shriek at a grumpy troll, or strike the menacing orange dragon with a magical silver sword. Choose your strategy carefully because the landscape of Dragonwood is ever-changing. Only the bravest will overcome the odds to emerge victorious!
Why we love it:
- Dragonwood started out looking much different than where it ended. Inventor Darren Kisgen submitted a prototype without a single illustration - just simple words and numbers written in marker on blank white cards
- That's all that was needed, because within moments, play testers were enraptured with the simple-to-learn but deeply engaging fantasy-themed game!
- Illustrator Chris Beatrice beautifully captured the wit and humor depicted in Darren's words to create one of Gamewright's most visually appealing games
