Dragonwood is a large forest that lies south of the kingdom. Rumors say it’s a place of magic and danger that none should venture into. It was the home of the elves and their magic and power still remains. Which, of course, sounds awesome to any adventurer looking to get rich and make a name for themselves! Gather your party and venture forth! Here’s hoping you don’t get eaten…or worse.

Dragonwood, designed by Darren Kisgen and published by Gamewright, is comprised of 64 Adventure cards, 42 Dragonwood cards, 2 Turn Summary cards, and 6 custom six-sided dice. The game component quality is excellent, which is exactly what I have come to expect from Gamewright. The illustrations by Chris Beatrice capture the personality of each of the monsters and magical beats depicted on the cards, further strengthening the game’s theme and narrative with visual flair.

Getting Ready for Adventure

To set up the game, first separate the Adventure cards and the Dragonwood cards. Both card types will have different card back colors, making this a simple exercise.

Second, look through the Dragonwood deck (green backed cards) and remove the “Orange Dragon” and “Blue Dragon” Creature cards. Shuffle the Dragonwood deck and deal the top 8 to 12 cards to a pile, making certain not to reveal them to any player. The number of cards to be dealt is based on the number of players in the game. These cards are will not be used and can be placed back in the game box.

Third, shuffle both the Adventure deck and the Dragonwood deck. Split the Dragonwood deck in half and shuffle in the “Orange Dragon” and “Blue Dragon” Creature cards in the bottom half. Combine the two halves without shuffling the Dragonwood deck again, making certain the dragons are in the bottom half.

Fourth, deal each player 5 Adventure cards. This is the player’s starting hand. They should look at their cards, but keep them hidden from their opponents. Place the Adventure deck face-down in the middle of the playing area. Leave room for a discard pile.

Fifth, place the Dragonwood deck face-down below the Adventure deck and draw 5 Dragonwood cards, placing them face-up in a row. This row is referred to as the “Landscape”. If an Event card is drawn, shuffle it back in the Dragonwood deck and draw another card. Leave room next to the Dragonwood deck for a discard pile.

Sixth, place the Turn Summary and dice to one side of the game playing area.

That’s it for game set up. Decide which adventurer will enter the wood first to meet their destiny!
