Dragon Line PnP

A Darkworld game for 2 players by CB Droege
Note: This is the 'Print and Play' version of Dragon Line. For a physical set go to: Dragon Line [www.thegamecrafter.com]

Dragon Line is a real world, playable version of a fictional card game played by the characters in the Isles of the Sun d20 campaign setting.

Each player builds a small army of dragons with which to face their opponent, chooses in which order the dragons approach the enemy lines, and attempts to be the player with dragons
remaining in hand at the end.

With clever drafting rules and thirty-five unique dragon cards, every hand of Dragon Line is a different game

GAMEPLAY RUNDOWN:

Dragon Line is played with a 35 card deck. Seven dragons apiece in five 'suites'. Each dragon has different stats (health and damage) and an ability depending on their suite. The game is divided into three phases:

In the 'build' phase, the players build their dragon army by taking turns looking through the split deck and drafting dragons into their hand until they each have six dragons.

In the 'line-up' phase the players choose their starting line of four dragons, which will face off against their opponent in the first round of the 'battle' phase.

In the 'battle' phase, the players secretly plan attack strategies, calculate the dragons' attacks, remove destroyed dragons, and replace them with dragons from their hand in a series of rounds. The winner is the player who doesn't run out of dragons in their hand first.

There are no dice in combat, so all of the battling is math and tactics. The dragons' abilities are straightforward and balanced, but the way those abilities can interact with one another can become more complex, and create interesting situations.
