I got a copy of Four Dragons today. As the Geek link betrays, it is a remake of Dia de los Muertos, one of my favourite card games. The new edition loses the strong theme (more about that in Four Dragons, an earlier entry of mine), but the new theme isn’t really that bad. Who wouldn’t like dragons, especially the Chinese ones?
What’s best, the new edition has very beautiful art (though the old edition has it’s charm and I’m quite happy to own that one as well) and what’s even more important, the new edition is readily available. That’s an improvement! Four Dragons can be recommended to anyone looking for a cerebral card game. The requirement of exactly four players is still a bit of a hindrance, though.
