In the Year of the Dragon

In this game, each player takes on the role of a Chinese prince, seeking to maximize the prosperity and prestige of his province in the ancient China of approximately 1,000 A.D.

To assist in these endeavors, the princes must call upon the diverse talents of their courtiers, from scholars and monks to warriors and craftsmen.

These loyal subjects will lend their expertise to the struggle to shield their rulers from the often disastrous consequences of the myriad untoward events that plague the populace from month to month.

Be it drought, contagion or Mongol invasion, only foresight and planning will spare the princes and their subjects from these fates. The better a player can manage his province and withstand the seemingly unending onslaught of hazardous events, the more honor and victory points he will have to show for it in the end.

  • For 2 to 5 players
  • Playtime of 75 to 100 minutes
  • Medieval China
  • It is a board game
  • Princely prosperity and prestige

About Dragon Mystic

I fell in love with dragons when I read Tea With the Black Dragon, and never looked back. Not the clunky winged Medieval dragons that ate cows, the graceful Asian dragons that could fly without wings. Later I discovered the elegant Welsh dragons, red and white, as described by R.J. Stewart in his books on the historical Merlin.

    Punish me more! In the year of the Dragon is an oddly punishing but well designed game that belongs in any Eurogame player’s collection. Good play balance, interesting timing and structural choices – and it isn’t artless nor visually ugly like so many other Euros. If you are not a Eurogame fan, this may be a little dry and be warned: this is a no luck/no dice/all strategy game.

    fantastic multi-player / multi-straegy game I’ve played this three times, all on the same day. Each time I played a different strategy while observing others also experimenting and mastering multiple strategies. The game board is designed to change with each game with an initial shuffle of the cards. I am very excited to get this stimulatingly complicated game.
