Land of the Dragons

Recommended Posts

Dragon warrior is one of my favorite video game on NES. In fact, I've the Dragonlord pseudo on a lot of games and forums. My boardgame collection was in the 70/80's, so my daughter show me Carcassonne three years ago, and I've probably the most complex Carcassonne game of the world with about 4000 tiles. The 10 008 game play was just with base game. I've created some expansions with new tiles, new mechanics for the game. Also created cards expansions with the Zipang card game. Also created solo and 2-4 players mode for the werewolf game.

Knowing a good place for games parts, the time to create my own game has come. :) 

I will show you the game to the beginning to the end. 

It's a game using about 120 tiles, 300 cards, 60 dices and 34 plastic/resin minis.

Ooh, this sounds intriguing. I LOVED Dragon Warrior as a teenager. It was the first RPG I ever played, and it opened up a whole new world to me. Afterwards I started playing the Final Fantasy series and Ultimate series.  Sill, I will never forget enormous fun my family had with Dragon Warrior. Even my mother was playing it. We each had our own game file and competed to see who would finish the game first. (It was me, I believe). 

So how does your game work? What are the rules? Looks like you have put a lot of thought into it.

Player's dices

D6 for level player and D12 to move

At the beginning, you play with one D6 and one D12

 

First you roll the D12 for the tile you can move

1 and up: Castle, city and village

2  and up: lawn

4 and up: savanna

6 and up: wood

8 and up: mountain

10 and up: lake and wiward's castle

If you don't move, you get half the life point going up.5a25ed01df122_playerdice.jpg.7915b99df850c3cf24bdfff9d64c6a10.jpg

The D6 are used to fight the monsters. Play one dice for level one and 3 for level 3.

(just need one black dice, should get it very soon)

Monsters's dices

Monsters from the cards use D4 to D30, the dragons: D60, sorcerer D80 to D100 and the wizard: D100 to D160. (missing D14, D16, D22)

There's the the monsters'life counters

Set up of the game:

Each player receive one D6 and one D12, some money (to be tested) and a marker for the last castle/city/village visited.

marker.thumb.jpg.26821ff8da1d24dcf0bbab45417845eb.jpg

 

After placing the first tiles:

5a26034866dfa_Starting1.jpg.02c65a3834956be456cd767ccae5d1b1.jpg

Adding the wizard, sorcerer and dragons. (don't have all the minis at this time nor the tiles)

5a2603493c66f_Starting2.jpg.5f15c0d102bc3c5831a96e0afac83bd8.jpg

In a bag, put all the mountains and lakes tiles, draw tiles to make another circle around the damned land.

Add wood, savanna and villages for the next circle.

Add lawn and cities for the next one and finish all the circle.

Each player put his castle connect to a lawn tile.

Each city, village and castle should be more than two tiles away.

After the set up off the game tiles (the look will be different every game except the center). The first player rolls the compass dice to move the 6 dragons of one tile.

dragon.jpg.4a5b0b162a2d456737be9992ad2fe9fc.jpg

After, he rolls his D12 to leave his castle. At level 1, only one dice, so forget to go on the wood or mountain tiles. Going on the lawn tile with a 2 roll and over or the savanna tile with a 4 and over roll, you pick up a monster card from the lawn category.

cards.jpg.ace1441095b7e7e6f3db51b370f14841.jpg

You could get a card like this; (I will not use the card above, may be copyright so I will make mine during the winter)

5a26ad5c7627e_2(2).thumb.jpg.56ec2632c5f25d460ec19da9c09f7f6c.jpg2.thumb.jpg.d0b7456f1c34ca1eda8ec58f1bf40231.jpg

D4 monster card means he rolls a D4 to attack you, have 4 life points and you will get 4 coins for the win.

The warrior rolls his D6 and the monster his D4. Warrior life will be ajusted with the playtesting. If you get 3 on your first roll, leaving one life point of the monster, you could add this monster for your companion if you're not dead :) 

Fighting monsters give money to buy weapons to increase attack and defense, but you have to reach a city (5 weapons cards choice) or a village (3 weapons cards choice). You have to change city/village to get a new weapons cards choice. Using the marker for it.

marker.thumb.jpg.9ffd79034c7ae97eece55ba7557099fe.jpg

Somethime, rather than a monster card, you could get some items.

6.thumb.jpg.d5203366bc60bb9e55712a43e12ab4c7.jpg5a26b1d1e256f_6(3).thumb.jpg.a406d12683a3411272e9d5cd99fa15a9.jpg

Keeping the defeat monsters cards, you could trade it to upgrade your level by adding another D6 on your attack and get more life points. Points for the next level will be playtesting before.

So it's only the beginning of the game project.

Still making the components of the game, so no testing yet.Everything on card won't change, but you can change the life points of the warrior, dragon, sorcerer and wizard, the points needed to upgrade level, removing easy or hard cards of the game, so it could be easy to difficult. Special quests could be add.

I remember how much Romy liked this game. She gave it to me for my birthday cause she wanted to play it so much and needed a reason to spend the money on it ¬¬ But I did end up enjoying the game anyways.

All the pieces have been ordered, also D9, D14, D16, D18 and D22 dices.

So time to make temporary playtesting cards before to create the PnP cards for it.

Showing my monster card with these vicious and terrifying bears. :):):) 

Also finish my wooden hidden cards holder. :)

Is that a pumpkin monster that I see? Did you get Tgpumkin’s permission to betray him as a monster? Do you have to pay him a royalty fee?  xD
