In these remote times when men and dragons are enemies, former adventurers have betrayed their original guild and are now serving a dragon. They protect it from the repeated attacks of adventurers attracted by the fabulous treasure of the dragon that is buried in the basement of the castle. Guardians of the Dragon Castle, you fight the adventurers.

You move the dragon to collect tiles (positive or negative depending on your original Guild) and give it to your neighbor. You will have to position the dragon judiciously, to watch your treasures, without forgetting the dragon's tribute ...

Dragon Keeper is a false cooperative where everyone plays for themselves, with a defeat that can be collective.

At the beginning of the game, each player receives a secret identity corresponding to the guild to which his character belonged (warrior, thief ...). We fill the 3 trays with tiles. Each tile represents a guild and offers a number of points (from 1 to 6).

 Each turn, you get one tile and give one to the previous player. The tile that can be retrieved by the next player will depend on the location of the tile you have given, creating a strong interaction.

The goal for each player is to get the most points but the fewest tiles that match his or her guild. If a player can no longer move the dragon, the turn stops. We remove the plateau from this level and move on to the next. Depending on the number of tiles remaining in the finished level, each player must pay a penalty to the dragon. If a player can not pay, he is eliminated. We get money every time we give to our neighbor right a tile worth 3 points or more. Some tiles also have a special action that will allow you to play one more round, to exchange a tile with an opponent, to remove at the end of the tiles of his guild ... At the end of the game, it will pay a tribute: each player discards his highest pile. If it's his original guild, he also discards the second highest. We then count the points, knowing that the tiles of the original guide are worth the negatives.
