hide their treasure of dragon eggs, emeralds, rubies, diamonds,
and sapphires in 15 volcanoes. Each player has three companions
down paths from one volcano to another to retrieve the randomly
scattered eggs, jewels, and tokens.
A companion who stops on a volcano reveals
the token and takes (a) one egg and any removable
token (later discarded for movement or acquisition privileges);
(b) all gems of its color; or (c) one diamond. Some revealed tokens
are dragons on which companions may fly to another volcano, or
used by capturing companions to ensure their gems count for scoring.
Play ends after
all eggs have been collected. Score a point for each egg or gem
collected, and bonuses for sets. Most points wins.
is a simple game suitable for both younger and older players. Like
other Knizia games, Dragonland will challenge players to arrive
at an optimal stragegy in this race for resources. For more information,
