A Game of Dice and Daring

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!

 My Thoughts
This game was so much fun to play! It reminds me of a couple of games I've played in the past that required dice and characters. My son is ten and begs to play this game over and over again!  
Game play is pretty easy, you simply roll the dice play how each card tells you to play.  Players either draw a card or attempt to capture a creature or enhancement. Players draw from the Adventurer deck that contains cards of 5 different colors all numbered 1-12. With these cards players form combinations to attempt a Strike (cards in a row of any color), a Stomp (cards of the same number) or a Scream (cards of the same color). To capture, players roll a number of dice equal to the number of cards they have of the particular combination. Each creature has different minimum values of a Strike, Stomp or Scream needed to capture it, and a Victory Point amount.
This is a great game choice for any child, boy or girl who has an imagination and loves games! You really can't go wrong with this game!
