Dragon Rampage BoxA new dice-based game by acclaimed designer Richard Launius

May 17, 2011: Eagle Games is pleased to announce Dragon Rampage, a new dice-based fantasy game! Dragon Rampage couples an exciting dice-rolling mechanic with more traditional board game and card mechanics. Dragon Rampage is brought to you by Richard Launius, designer of such hits as Arkham Horror and Eagle Games’ own Defenders of the Realm. Featuring stunning art by Cyril van der Haegen whose previous work has appeared in Arkham Horror, Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game, and Magic: The Gathering. Dragon Rampage Is scheduled for a mid third quarter release.

Full Game Description: Dragon Rampage is a strategic dice game for 3 to 5 players. Each player becomes one of the adventurers (all with different abilities) trying to score the most points at the end of the game by fighting against, and/or running from the dragon that just woke up, and by tallying up the treasure and gold obtained in the dungeon. Players roll 7 specially designed dice and choose whether to focus on: grabbing treasure (from the dragon or from another player); fighting the dragon; protecting themselves (and their treasure); or running for the exit. Try not to draw the dragon’s attention as you make your way, and note too that your fellow adventurers may hinder (or aid) your strategy. Beware, the final scoring changes depending on how the game ends…so watch your step!

Sure, the treasure around the sleeping dragon looked like it would be easy to get. At least the Rogue was convinced that sneaking in and grabbing an arm load of loot would be a cinch…things were going well until the Barbarian knocked over a stack of golden platters and the Dragon awoke. Needless to say, he was not too happy to see us going through his treasure. The first to run was the Rogue, as usual — hide in the shadows is her motto — but a Paladin never runs when a fight is at hand. So I hefted my sword and attacked, expecting to see lots of help, minus the Rogue of course. Instead, as I was bringing down my sword, I saw out of the corner of my eye, the Wizard AND the Dwarf edging toward the door…it was going to be one of those days.”
