Michael Barnes' review on fortressat.

Boardgamegeek's video about Dragon Rage.

 A review of Dragon Rage on Opinionated Gamer.  Another review, from "Fortress Ameritrash"!  I have to quote this one: "Itís an absolute grab-bag of fun fantasy memes and is certainly the most customisable wargame without miniatures that Iíve ever seen."

A review of Dragon Rage appeared in a British blog.   Also on BGG.  Video review, in German, of Dragon Rage.

The physical components are very impressive (compared with the original microgame), on a par with Britannia.  The hit recording sheets are full-size plasticized cardboard, as opposed to the original notepad.  The board is fully mounted, and has an orc lair on the opposite side, with new scenarios.    You can see from the photo that the pieces are individually cut and have round corners, not like the typical wargame with square-cornered little pieces.

 

Following is from the 1982 version:

  1. What is it about: From box:

    "A nervous sentry spies the twin specks in the sky. Soon he can make out the huge leathery wings and long necks.

    'The Dragons! The Dragons have come!'

    The great warhorn frantically calls across the city. Knights mount their horses, as archers rush to the walls. Many years has the city stood at the forest edge, withstanding the attacks of trolls, goblins, and sea serpents, but now will come the greatest test--for now is the hour of Dragon Rage..."

    "Dragon Rage is a game of mythical creatures attacking a walled medieval city. The game-board is a full color aerial view of the city and surrounding territory, and the counters include knights, infantry, heroes, wizards, dragons, orcs, trolls, great birds, giants, and other mythical creatures and beasts. The game rules include six scenarios, and a table for creating your own games with different combinations of monsters and city defense forces."

    Play Level-- Introductory/Intermediate. Ages 12 and older."
