Fist of Dragonstones takes the chaotic imaginations of Bruno Faidutti and combines them with the terrific components of Days of Wonder. Players are attempting to get a certain amount of Dragonstones, utilizing the abilities of a variety of characters. To use these powers, players bid with gold and silver coins, as well as respawning "fairy"gold. Players must be careful with this "blind bidding", as they can lose their money even if they don't win! Games are fascinating and quick, as players attempt to outbid each other and use the abilities of the characters in the right combinations. A simple card game similar to Faidutti's classic, Citadels, Fist of Dragonstones uses a fantasy theme to create an enjoyable bidding game.
