How to Play
Dare to enter Dragonwood! Deep in the heart of this mythical forest lurk angry ogres, giggling goblins, and even the famed and fearsome fire-breathers themselves! Collect sets of adventurer cards to earn dice, which you will use to roll against your foes. Stomp on some fire ants, shriek at a grumpy troll, or strike the menacing orange dragon with a magical silver sword. Choose your strategy carefully because the landscape of Dragonwood is ever-changing. Only the bravest will overcome the odds to emerge victorious!
It may be hard to imagine, but Dragonwood, with its vast array of richly illustrated cards, started out looking much different than where it ended. Inventor Darren Kisgen submitted a prototype without a single illustration – just simple words and numbers written in marker on blank white cards. Well apparently that’s all was needed, because within moments, our play testers were enraptured with the simple-to-learn but deeply engaging fantasy-themed game. Illustrator Chris Beatrice beautifully captured the wit and humor depicted in Darren’s words to create one of our most visually appealing games.

a game for all ages. We play with 9 and 20 years old and enjoy the simple time together. The game is simple enough for 9yo to pick it up and have enough going on to keep older players engaged too.
Fantastic … spending the holidays playing it. All ages enjoy playing it and good way to practice maths and develop strategies. High recommend it.
This game is fabulous, and like many other Gamewright products it has levels for beginners through to advanced, or a shorter or longer game. We played as a family and it has been wonderful, great too when the kids have to count the dice themselves. Wonderful illustrations, small enough to take travelling or camping! Highly recommend!
