River Dragons get super sized!

river-dragons-giant

River Dragons was released over 15 years ago and while it’s not the highest rated game, it still has a solid rating and ranking on BoardGameGeek.  The game consists of players trying to cross a river by setting up foundation pieces and then laying cardboard planks across them.  As the game would go on you would place more foundations, lay more planks and start walking across them.  The catch is that the other players will sometimes knock your stuff over, setting you back.  Whoever can reach the goal first would be the winner.

Honestly I don’t know who was clamoring for this, but later this month Surfin’ Meeple will be releasing River Dragons Giant.  This is a super sized edition of the game with the formally 1″ tall figures now towering at 5 to 6 inches, and the cardboard planks replaced with wood ones roughly the size of paint stirrers.  All of this will be contained in a wood crate with an equally over-sized board.  So if you enjoy this game but thought it was too small, look for this edition on stores shelves at the end of the month.
