About this game

The official Android version of the nestorgames Way Of The Dragon board game designed by Néstor Romeral Andrés and developed by bsideb projects.

This is the ultimate race between the five elements. The earth dragons, the water tortoises, the metal tigers, the fire birds and the wood dragons cross the way of the Great Celestial Dragon to gain immortality.

The goal of the game is to get your five pieces as far as possible through the five paths when the game ends. This happens when at least one of the players has reached the end of the five paths.
How To Play

On your turn you must do the following in order:
1. Roll the five dice. You may elect to roll a second and third time re-rolling any or all of dice (as in Yahtzee).
2. If you can, you must move one of your pieces, except if you’ve called the great dragon (see below “Calling the dragon”).
Then the turn passes to the next player.

How To Move
Once you’ve finished your dice rolls, you must choose one of the elements and advance the piece on the corresponding path as many spaces as dice are showing this element. If there is no piece of your color on the corresponding path, you must enter a piece from outside the board onto the symbol space of the path and then move it the full number of spaces (pieces never stay on the symbol spaces). There cannot be more than one piece of each colour on each path, so there is one path for every piece the player has.
If the destination space is occupied by another piece, the player’s piece cannot be moved at all (nor can it be entered onto the board) this turn.
A piece lying on a numbered space can no longer move, but can be swapped by calling the Great Dragon (see below).
Moving is mandatory. This is, if the player can move at least one piece, he must move one.
If the player cannot move any of his pieces then simply passes the turn.

Calling The Dragon
If a player has rolled 4 or 5 dragons, the he may call the Great Dragon instead of moving. The Great Dragon has the power to swap 2 pieces of one of the paths.
- If the player has rolled 4 dragons, he is allowed to swap any two pieces of the corresponding path of the element shown on the 5th die.
- If he’s rolled 5 dragons, he is allowed to swap any 2 pieces on any one path.

If all the 5 dice show the same element (not dragons), then he’s reached ‘perfection’ and may play a complete turn again after moving.

If all the 5 dice show a different element (not dragons), then he’s reached ‘equilibrium’ and he must move each of his pieces forward one space (those that can be moved).

Game End
The game ends when one player has all of his pieces on numbered spaces.
Then each player sums up the numbers underneath their pieces. The player with the highest score wins the game. In case of a tie, the player with most pieces on numbered spaces wins the game. If the tie persists then the game is a tie.

The developers are very much involved and care deeply about the project. Via my outdated Samsung Galaxy, the app doesnt work. But they have a web-based version which works perfectly for me.

Just downloaded and there is no offline game at all..... why would I want an app that I can only play online with an account? I could just go to Yucata to play instead. This is insane, deleted immediately.

Hi! We are happy to share that we just released a new version which includes local pass & play and 3 levels of AI to play. We invite you to give it a try! See if you can beat them all. Yucata is great, but not everyone plays there (we do ;) and not every game is so adapted to a mobile device. We hope you enjoy this update.

Hi Dennis! We are happy to announce the latest update includes back the AI and local pass & play features. Sorry it was missing for some time, but we had to rewrite the game from scratch and had to disable it temporarily. Enjoy back local pass & play and AI games! Can you beat all the AI levels?
