Book of Dragons is a game system featuring a deck of 40 tarot-sized cards beautifully illustrated by Kerem Beyit with graphic design by Luis Francisco.
The deck features four copies of ten unique dragons, with no text or iconography on any of the cards. Games are played only by use of the artwork on the cards, making all games completely language independent. Book of Dragons will launch with 18 designer games by 16 different designers as well as some re-worked public domain games.
Book of Dragons is not just a card game, but a game system. It includes a deck of large, tarot-sized cards, beautifully illustrated by world-renowned artist Kerem Beyit. Think of it as a modern deck of playing cards, but instead of playing poker, blackjack, and other traditional card games, a host of designer games utilizing a plethora of modern design mechanics can be played.
The game's large cards feature only artwork, with no text or iconography, making it completely language and color independent. This also makes Book of Dragons a real head turner when on your table.
Sure, Book of Dragons is serious eye candy, but that's not what makes it special. It's the games. We've recruited many talented game designers to provide a myriad of games that all utilize this single deck. The retail version will ship with a reference booklet, and three different rulebooks, one that contains light games that are great for families with children, one that contains pub-style/beer & pretzel filler games, and one that contains heavier strategy games.
Individual rulesets are currently in final editing, and graphic design. Below is a sample of our rulebook covers, and page design. You can also review a complete final ruleset design for Dragon Duel by clicking this link.
Below are games that will ship with Book of Dragons. Click on a title for each game's current draft rules. Games without a rules link are still in development, but are targeted to be completed before production in February. The retail version will ship with 18 unique new games, but may have up to 25.
