Product Description

Product Description

Climb aboard your trusty steed and lift off for the race of your life! The players race their dragons on a course in a deep and winding canyon. You have some magic to use to aid your cause, but the real test is your skill at maneuvering your dragon through the course to reach the finish line ahead of the others. Players choose their speeds on each round secretly, but then must move at that speed, even if other dragons or canyon walls are in the way.The movement system gives players more maneuverability at lower speeds than at higher, so you cannot turn your dragon on a dime unless you are going very slowly. The track is made of two-sided tiles, so players can design their own races and change them every race to keep things fun and exciting! Dragonriders is for 2 to 6 players and takes about an hour to play.

Until now I could easily have gone on record as saying that there was a good possibility Rio Grande Games didn't have a bad title in their entire catalog. The company actually built a reputation for itself not by writing great games on their own but rather by traveling the globe and seeking out only the best board games with which to translate into English (if necessary) to be distributed to a North American audience. On the whole, the formula proved very successful as realized through a catalog consisting of games like Carcassonne, Lost Cities, Power Grid, and Puerto Rico. After having enjoyed an incredible run with the brand, I naturally became laxed on researching their products before purchasing. Now factor into the mix my natural appreciation of fantasy themed games and purchasing Dragonriders was all but a given. I am here to tell you that I should have done more research!

Written by Klaus-Jurgen Wrede & Jean du Poel with artwork by Andreas Adamek, Rio Grande pulled this title from a company called Amigo rather than their usual pool of Kosmos or Winning Moves. I have no prior experience with Amigo's other games but if Dragonriders represents the epitome of what they've produced, I've gotten as close as I would ever want to!

I suppose in all fairness I should begin with the positive: The game, as is par for the course with Rio Grande, is both stunning to behold and built of top quality materials. Beginning with the box art itself then getting into the goodies contained within, Dragonriders will fool even the most skeptical gamer into believing he's discovered fantasy-gold. The bottom doesn't drop out until you actually begin the first round of play.

Dragonriders is a 2 to 6 player fantasy themed racing game (yes, you heard that right). It is a Euro game, which is weird because this is an unusually competitive player vs. player game to come out of Germany. It’s indeed an impressive find if you’ve stumbled upon it, but the game suffers some very heavy game play problems which every player will inevitably run into.

The game comes with 15 square shaped tiles and a frame so you can mix and match any kind of race track you want to play on. Your dragons will be flying down a path trying to stay inside the walls and win by completing one lap ahead of the other dragons. But since this racing game has no pre-programmed conditions, you can make your own rules like going multiple laps and such.

Component wise, the game is a real mixed package. The game looks very impressive when you open it because, for starters, movement in this game is determined with these cleverly made rulers that determine the distance a dragon can fly at any given speed. A ‘V’ shaped slit is cut out of either end which also determines how much maneuverability your dragon has, as it determines how you can rotate the base of their figure and how sharply you can make those tight turns. It is, indeed, an amazing mechanic to behold.

But unfortunately, this same mechanic is the games own undoing. The positions of your figures is not determined by marked spaces. They stand in the middle of open space with nothing to remind you of their position if they get knocked over. While you are trying to move a dragon you’ll have to be careful never to bump another person’s figure or push something by accident.
