Dragonheart is a quick and light board game for two players, playable in only 20 minutes. Players try to accumulate points by playing cards to and collecting cards from the game board. The player with the most points at the end of the game determines the fate of the Great Dragon, and the land itself.
It really shouldn't be any good at all. It has a good bit of luck of the draw in it..But it's actually very charming and magical. The more you play the more you see the strategy in it. Besides the normal hand management there is a press your luck element that isn't blind but rather informed based upon watching just the last play or two of your opponent. The board is also essential in this game, not some superficial addon. The board additionally makes the game a breeze to teach since the arrows represent how the cards interact. I've found playing two games and totally the points or just playing 2 out of 3 wins offsets any single string of bad luck in the cards a single game might have. Experienced players will complete a game in under 10 minutes.
Is this any good?
