Guardian Dragon Expansion - Print Proof Copy
The SFG Community Team have taken over the Kickstarter Updates! We’re the guys who answer your questions on Facebook/Twitter, and we’ll keep you up to date on everything going on with Dark Souls™ - The Board Game (and let the Project Team focus on making sure we stay on track). If you’ve not seen the timeline for the project, you can view it HERE.
SFG have been sent through the ‘Print Proof’ boxes for Black Dragon Kalameet, and the Guardian Dragon Expansions for Dark Souls™ - The Board Game. These are the copies that get sent to the Project Team from the factory in China, so they can check everything is how it should be. We managed to pry the Guardian Dragon away from them and get some photos. When they go on lunch tomorrow we’ll grab Black Dragon Kalameet and show that off too!!
Guardian Dragon Expansion
Guardian of the passage to the Dragon Aerie from Lord Aldia’s Keep, this creature is not truly a dragon as those Everlasting were but is, rather strictly speaking, a drake. It is no less mighty or fearsome for its breed, however, and its kind rule the skies far above the earth, unquestionably the predominant predators of their domain…
SPOILER ALERT: If you want the gameplay experience of the Guardian Dragon Expansion to be entirely unexpected do not read the text, just look at the pretty pictures.
Obligatory Spoiler Alert out of the way…let’s have a look at what you get in the box.
- 1x Rules Insert
- 1x Guardian Dragon Miniature
- 1x Guardian Dragon Health Dial
- 1x Guardian Dragon Data Card
- 11x Guardian Dragon Behaviour Cards
- 4x Fiery Breath Cards
- 2x Guardian Dragon Treasure Cards
- 4x Level 4 Encounter Cards
- 1x Mega Boss Game Board (Double Sided)
Level 4 Encounters
For starters, before you can take on the Guardian Dragon you have to complete a Level 4 Encounter. If you thought fighting 2 Hulking Hollows, 2 Hollow Soldiers, 2 Crossbow Hollows in a room with barrels and traps was tough…you should take a seat. There are SO many foes in your way that a Level 4 Encounter can only be completed on a Mega Boss Game Board and uses pretty much your entire grunt collection from the Core Game. For example, the Dragon Shrine encounter has:
- 1x Sentinel
- 3x Crossbow Hollows
- 3x Silver Knight Swordsmen
- 3x Hollow Soldiers
- 2x Gravestones
- 1x Chest
Your reward for completing this fiendish Encounter is a whopping 8 Souls per Player, and entry into the Mega Boss Encounter.
Guardian Dragon Mega Boss
We don’t want to spoil too much of the encounter as fighting a Mega Boss should be a new and exciting (and difficult) fight. However, be warned that the Guardian Dragon not only has a Mega-Boss Behaviour Deck but also a deck of Fiery Breath cards which can relocate the Guardian Dragon and reign scorching hot fire onto the intrepid adventurers. Each Mega Boss Expansion includes it’s own custom gameplay elements that bring unique challenges and opportunities to Dark Souls™ - The Board Game players.
That's all for today everyone join us tomorrow for a look at Black Dragon Kalameet.
