DragonStrike is a game for two or more players featuring pre-painted dragons that will be doing battle across a variety of different scenarios. The game itself is quick and easy to learn featuring a neat card mechanic where you secretly pick your manoeuvres before revealing them at the same time. This means that you'll have to do some planning ahead when it comes to besting your foes!

We've had a lot of fun with DragonStrike throughout its development. Mastering the way that the manoeuvres work and how to get the best out of your dragons is a fun tactical puzzle to try and solve. Because this matches up with D&D and the world of Dragonlance, you can even blend this game into your 5th Edition campaigns on the tabletop.

DragonStrike Pledge Options

There are a variety of different pledge options for you to consider. The Dragonrider Pledge gives you the four pre-painted dragons for Red, Bronze, White and Copper as well as all of the components and such that you need to play the game.

If this has got you excited about DragonStrike, you can dive in and give the game a go yourself. You can head over to Tabletop Simulator and play a version of the game right now before you drop your pledge.

DragonStrike is a fantastic game that seems to really nail the idea of dragon combat on the tabletop. Dungeons & Dragons Attack Wing was ok but I don't think it really managed to capture the feel of combat on the back of a dragon (because of course I know what that's like!). DragonStrike does it right!
