The four deck options in Dragon Dreams -Luminous Ages
The four deck options in Dragon Dreams -Luminous Ages

Dragon Dreams is a Luminous Ages Card Game. It is a stand alone and expandable game. The goal of the game is to raise an army, protect your land and SUMMON A Dragon God! Each carefully designed and balanced deck has it's own unique method of killing their enemy's armies, protecting their own armies and gaining the power to Summon THEIR DRAGON GOD!

Luminous Ages, 'Dragon Mode' was the first version of the game but has now been expanded with new cards in Dragon Dreams, a deeply strategic Card Game. It is a 2 player competitive game. The goal is to raise enough energy to Summon your chosen Dragon God and keep it out long enough to claim the Realms for you and your God. 

Pick one theme deck or buy multiple, to play with many friends and customise your experience.

You only need to purchase one Dragon Dreams Deck to share the deck with a friend and play. The game starts at only $23 USD

Dragon Dreams: Luminous Ages is not a TCG/CCG - you always know what you are getting in each deck and you don't need to spend money on new cards to play. Skills are all that matter here!

The game is easy to learn and experienced players can play three rounds in one hour!

One deck 1-2 Players, 2 Decks 2-4!

One Dragon Dream Deck allows for 1-2 player but if you buy two you can share the two decks among four players.

 Why Kickstarter?

The format of our game has changed to be an Expandable Card Game. We are releasing every card in the first four colours plus new cards not seen by the public or even existing tournament players. Kickstarter will enable us to give existing fans a new product and also expand our audience internationally.

 Decklist for the four major themes: (Click on this link to view)

Dragon Mode is the first version of Luminous Ages we released and comes with 48 punch out tokens, 120 cards, 2 x 6 sided die, 2 x 30 sided die, 2 life cards, a rule book and a card of the phases in each turn.

Cards and accessories from Dragon Mode and other earlier versions of the game are compatible with the new dragon dream decks. Cards from all versions can be combined to create more options for personalised decks. However the Dragon Dreams Decks allow you to get each card from the colour theme you like and play the deck straight out of the box! This is without building the deck.

Many of the items included in Dragon Mode can also be used for player's convenience when playing with the theme decks.  

Learn the core rules of the game with this demo by the creators of the game. Check out the updated and complete core rules: Download

Below is the highly recommended play through before you play!

The video below is the latest play through and updated rules for the game. We have used Vassal for this demonstration and also used it for beta testing to make the game balanced.

" Luminous Ages is in a single word, Stunning. I have never played a game that leaps off the table more than this one. I know I normally wait until the end of the review to talk about the art; but this can't be helped for Luminous Ages. It is truly stunning. The creatures are whimsical and mystical; the humans are so realistic and the whole world is so colourful. If the skittles slogan is 'Taste the rainbow'; then this game's slogan should be 'Play the Rainbow'. I have never seen so much colour on a board and it done so well. 

 ...

The Questing in this game is a beautiful touch; that is very unique to this game. It gives an almost RPG feel to it, though it is only a single dice roll to resolve. The ability to steal or destroy lands in this game is another element I really like; as it makes you think and adds another level of depth. You need to guard your lands, which forces you to play creatures and not get complacent about your board."

Luminous Ages has appeared at Pax Aus for the last 2 years and has been accepted this year as well. Players in Australia can get a deck on Kickstarter and have it shipped to them before or picked up from Pax Aus. You can also learn to play the game at the event.

The core game has already been manufactured and is ready to ship as soon as we have received payment and have had time to process all surveys! The goal of this Kickstarter is to help bring Luminous Ages to an International audience. Funding will go towards printing new cards, marketing and sending out review copies.

Risks and challenges

The game has already been manufactured and we were offered by our manufacturer to print an extra set of single cards and new cards that are not in our initial Dragon Mode. Anthony Christou and his team of Beta testers got creative and we made the brand new Dragon Dreams Expansion Decks. Having a year to play the first game we were also able to test and take on customer feedback and make these pre-made colour themed decks which work perfectly for players.

Because the game is already here in the office of A Christou Art www.achristouart.com their is no risk we can ship the game to you once the funds have cleared and once all surveys are completed.
