Pasteups in Swedish for the cards (Word document - thanks to Magnus Lundgren)

Strategy: -
Comments: My edition is from 2001. The designer is Bruno Faidutti.

Normally I not really fond of negociation games nor games which requires that you do things under stress, but this game is just great. Some people plays the game without the timer, which seems to work pretty well. Then maybe it's possible to play it with younger people.

Extract from Essen game report 2001. Finally I had the chance to play "Drachengold". I was afraid that the stress moment in the negotiations would make the game collapse, but I was really surprised how good it was in its simplicity, so I decided to buy a copy. Magnus had made paste-ups in Swedish, which made it easier to play (ratings CGS=7, ML=7, SL=8, TB=8, Fredrik Thid=7).
