Theme: Each year on the delta of the Dragon River, there is a great competition among the bravest and strongest youths of the kingdom. They attempt to cross the river on fragile bridges built from planks and stones in order to reach a village on the opposite side. The first player to cross the delta is the victor, and winds a golden dragon statue from the King. However, in order to get across, contestants must carefully calculate their moves, negotiate past the maneuvers of their opponents, and avoid the dangerous obstacles presented by the dragons living in the water that gives the delta its name.
Rules In Brief: On each turn, the players each choose 5 action cards from their hand. The cards are placed face down in front of them. Then, one by one, the cards are revealed simultaneously. Players then perform the actions (Place one or more stones, place one or more planks, move their pawn, remove a stone or plank). One of their 5 cards may be a dragon, which blocks the move of an opponent. The object is to be the first player to move their pawn to the village on the opposite shore.
Characteristics: Dragon Delta is a simple tactical game, that the whole family can enjoy. Its quick and easy rules require players to anticipate their opponent's moves and attempt to see through their bluffs. Fortunes in the game change dramatically, as players build and alter bridges, and cause fearsome dragons to slow down their opponents. More experienced players will be charmed by the beautiful components, and surprised by the depth and subtlety of the game.
