Description

You and your adventuring friends have spent the day slogging through the dungeon, killing monsters and taking their treasures.  Now you’re back in town, healed and cleaned up, and ready to party at the Red Dragon Inn.  Go ahead and drink, gamble, and rough house with your friends.  But, keep an eye on your gold.  Run out and you’ll have to spend the night in the stables.  And try not to drink too much, for if you black out your friends will party without you - - after they have stolen all of your gold.  The last conscious adventurer with gold wins the game.

The Red Dragon Inn features 4 characters with their own deck of cards.  Each turn players will draw and discard, play action cards, buy drinks for their friends, and have a drink for themselves.  Normal play can be interrupted when someone plays the “Gambling , I’m In” action card.  Hopefully, you have a “Winning Hand” card that doesn’t get trumped by a “Cheating” card. Once you have accumulated as much gold as possible gambling make sure that all your friends have well stocked drink piles.  Then you will be the last player standing and the winner of The Red Dragon Inn.
