Die kleinen Drachenritter

 

Nils the Dragon is always stealing the most beautiful treasure. The brave Dragon Knights want to recover the loot! But Nils is sitting on top of a very high, very steep cliff, so they will have to build some barricades. In this innovative stacking game, players build a tower against a steep wall. The 3D game board sits in the middle of the players. Next to it there are various objects, such as barrels, ladders and crates, in five different colours. Players roll a dice to determine which colour object may be placed. The tower grows quickly but it’s wobbly. The winner is the player who can place their figure so it can peek over the top of the cliff and stay standing for five seconds. A piece of cake – if it weren’t for the grey dice face. Rolling this means their opponent can throw a stone! This shows the real builders!

Reason for the jury’s decision

A bulky rocking horse, a massive treasure chest or a narrow ladder? On the way up the dragon’s mountain, children test out their attitude to risk: should I try to rush to the top using less stable objects or should I create a more secure base instead? As well as a bit of luck rolling the dice you’ll need a good eye to succeed. The child-oriented game components also help develop the fine motor skills of little climbers.
