"You have arrived to the island in your quest to kill the dragon that terrorizes the land... Your first task will be to collect supplies to the villages so they will trade you the village stones. You need the village stones to enter the dragon lair.
Travel through deep jungles and high mountains always ready to defend your self... Search for weapons you can use against the creatures of the island. You will come face to face with creatures of the jungle and the orc clans that control the mountains... Prepare yourself with all the supplies and weapons you need to take on the dragon"
Fun adventure that can be played and enjoyed by all ages. The rules are easy to learn and understand.
What makes the game so fun? Well... The game can turn very fast because you can use many different tactics and always decide what risks you are willing to take.
You come face to face with a very angry gorilla in a jungle... He strikes you hard and you lose some health. What do you do? Do you fight or try to hide from him? If you hide you will not be able to search the area.. If you fight him without a weapon, you might lose much of your health... Do you want to use a good weapon or do you save it for something bigger and stronger. If you save it and lose all your health you have to return to the ship.
What about the fight with the Dragon? Do you want to take a chance and search more areas for better weapons and herbs before you enter the Dragon lair? Someone else might kill the Dragon…
You race another player to trade a village, 2 wood pieces for a village stone you need. Do you have energy herbs that make you go faster so you can beat him to the village? When someone gets to the village and make the trade they might request other supplies for the next village stone...
The tactics are many and will keep changing during the game.
2-6 players is recommended but you can also play it on your own (You vs the island) or co-op (Players vs the island) When you play together with a friend against the island you can give your friend stuff you have found, when you are in the same area. Help your friend with supplies he needs to trade the villages for the stones he don’t have. Help your friend with a good weapon if you have 2-3 of them. If your friend is down, move to the area his in and heal him with herbs you have.
Contents: 1 dice D12 1 dice D6 1 sticker dice 1 game board 18x18" 6 “Player boards” 1 deck of jungle area cards 1 deck of mountain area cards 1 deck of dragon lair cards 1 deck of search cards 6 characters 6 black village stones 6 red village stones 6 white village stones 6 yellow village stones 6 red health pawns 23 food shards 23 stone shards 23 wood shards 1 large pro box
I know that the price is a bit high but the game has over 100 game parts and 4 decks of cards. If you then add a game board and 6 separate player boards, the price start to make sense. All the parts and cards can give the impression that the game is hard to learn and have many tricky rules. This is totally wrong. All the cards have pictures that explain what they do and are good for. I promise that it will only take around 10 min in game time, for a 10 year old to learn the game…
