Thank you everyone for all the game suggestions in the previous strip’s comments. I didn’t expect the previous strip to generate such a large amount of tips and ideas for card and board games. I’m really intrigued by some of them, will have to see if I can find a shop that does demos around me. πŸ˜€

The game in the strip is one I made up, but I can really see some of the suggested games being fun things to reference later on.

I basically chose to make up a board game for this strip that called to mind some of the board games from my childhood with slightly over-blown design gimmicks. The Treasure of Dragon Mountain is won by being the first player to climb to the top of the mountain, defeating Monsters Hazards and Traps along the way. The six player tokens each have an advantage against one a disadvantage against a second and are neutral with the third, so climbing to the top is a lot of luck with a little bit of trickery in applying the Tool cards everyone gets to hold. The Dragon at the top is also... well I'll discuss that on Friday. >:D
