In the Mekong delta, the bravest young people face each other in a famous contest where they have to cross the river by building bridges with planks and stones. To arrive safely on the opposite bank, care will have to be taken by avoiding your opponents and those pesky dragons. You want to move your pawn over a system of bridge-like planks to the other side of the board. An easy task! Or at least it would be if everyone were working together, but alas you're not. Instead you're all working on your own right next to one another, each convinced that your way is best.
Players simultaneously select one card from a set of five actions that's available to each player. The actions allow players to place plank foundations, place planks, move their pawns, cancel other players' actions, or remove planks or foundation stones. As can be expected for a design with simultaneous action selection, the game is rather chaotic.
River Dragons is a fun game and will be enjoyed by the whole family. It includes high quality game components and beautifully artistic cards. For 2-6 players, ages 8 and up. Game time is about 15-45 minutes.
Contents include: 1 game board, 27 stones, 1st player card, 6 pawns, 36 numbered planks, 78 action cards, and game rules.
