Box text:Welcome to the school for exceptionally talented students of the ancient art of Dungeon Crawling! Are you ready to make your House proud?
Dragonsgate College is a strategic game utilizing a unique dice drafting mechanism, that puts 2-4 players in charge of Student Houses locked in a battle for recognition and prestige. Each turn players draft dice that allow them to perform multiple actions: recruiting new apprentices and teachers, placing new facilities on their player boards, and more. Each turn they also have the opportunity to raise the general skill levels of their House, in order to give their apprentices a greater push towards performing feats of bravery and cunning.
Constructing student facilities, hiring seasoned adventurers as teachers, dabbling in the arcane arts of wizardry and subterfuge, and cleverly outmaneuvering your opponents all this awaits you within the walls of this ancient university. Prove your worth, and maybe you will even get a tenure!
