Q: What is the game mechanic?
A: Dragons of Kir is a tile placement game in which players influence four independently moving Dragons in order to destroy their opponent's war tent.

Q: Is there luck involved, or is the outcome based solely on skill?
A: Each player holds a hand of 4 randomly drawn tiles. Each turn, a tile is placed on the board and a new tile is drawn. However, it is what you do with the tiles you draw that will win you the game.

Q: The game uses an 8x8 grid, is it like chess?
A: Dragons of Kir is a strategy game that will appeal to chess players, but it is entirely different.

Q: What other games is it similar to?
A: Dragons of Kir uses the Darter Mechanic(TM) and is an off-shoot of the award winning game Darter.

Q: How does the wrap around concept of the battlefield work?
A: When a dragon would move off of the board, it is instead placed on the opposite side of the board facing in the same direction. This works for both rows and columns. Keep in mind that Tile influence also wraps around the board. A lotus pond on one edge of the battlefield will affect dragons on the opposite edge of the board.

Q: How is the game setup?
A: Place one dragon, facing counter-clockwise in each of the four squares marked with a diamond.
The dragon in the upper right faces left (West).
The dragon in the upper left faces down (South).
The dragon in the lower left faces right (East).
The dragon in the lower right faces up (North).
All four dragons start facing in different directions.

Q: What is the best way to fold the dragon pieces?
A: A diagram for folding the pieces can be found here.

Q: Which dragons are mine?
A: No one controls or owns the dragons on the board. They are independent of the players and any dragon can destroy any war tent.

Q: Can I move my war tent once the game has started?
A: No. Wartents remain in the square in which they started the game.

Q: How many tiles can I place each turn?
A: Each player only places 1 tile per turn.

Q: Does the same player place first each turn?
A: Yes. Player 1 places first each turn. Player 2 places second each turn.

Q: Can Dragons move backwards or be pushed or pulled backwards?
A: No a dragon cannot be pushed or pulled backwards by any tile. Dragons will always move forward 1 square each turn before they are affected by any tiles.

Q: Can 2 dragons occupy the same square?
A: Yes. Dragons do not affect each other when they cross paths or occupy the same square.

Q: Which dragon moves first?
A: All dragons are considered to move at the same time. You can move any dragon you want first as long as you move each one. Any tiles destroyed by the movement of one dragon are not removed from the game until all dragons have completed their movement.

Q: If a tile is destroyed, when do I remove it?
A: Tiles destroyed by dragons are removed from the board at the end of each turn. Tiles destroyed by the Dragon Tile "Dragon Breath" are removed before any dragons move.

Q: Can a tile destroyed by one dragon affect another dragon in the same turn?
A: Yes. A tile destroyed by one dragon is left on the board until all dragons have completed their movement for the turn. Then it is removed from the game.

Q: What is a tile system?
A: A tile system is two or more tiles that move a dragon in the same turn.

Q: Does a Dragon Lair affect dragons in the same square?
A: Yes. The Dragon Lair tile prevents all dragons, in the square in which it is played, from moving that turn.
