In River Dragons, you will want to move your pawn over a system of bridge-like planks to the other side of the board. A simple task! Or at least it would be if everyone was working together, but alas you're not. Instead you're all working on your own next to one another, each convinced that your way is best.
In game terms, players will simultaneously select five action cards to be performed from the nine actions available and lay them down in order they are to be played. The turn is resolved one card at a time. The actions let players place plank foundations, place planks, move their pawns, cancel other players' actions, or remove planks or foundation stones. As expected for a design with simultaneous action selection, the game is rather chaotic.
The 2012 edition of the game, River Dragons, comes with a double-sided game board not present in earlier editions, with one side of the board featuring rock piles on which you place stones (as in the original Dragon Delta), while the other side has a featureless river on which players can place stones in any location.
