The long winter is drawing nigh and the dwarves have to prepare by gathering supplies, such as food and gems as well as by building castles. At the same time, the fire dragons are sleeping and the giants of winter are lurking. The period of the fall is what you need to prepare yourselves and choose wisely the actions you are going to take when the time comes.
In Dwar7s Fall, players take on the role of the leader of a clan of dwarves aiming at collecting gems which they will trade for food. They will also have to face fire dragons and winter giants that are coming to ruin the dwarves’ plans.
Dwar7s Fall is a game with three basic concepts: the Kingdom Card placement, where you must place the 9 Kingdom cards from your hand on the board, in order to create your own Kingdom and mark your territory by using walls. The worker placement follows during which you send your 7 dwarves to the Mines to collect gems, to the Tavern to buy supplies and to the woods to kill monsters or sabotage other players. Take that is another mechanism of the game, with which you can hire the Ogres from the Inn and send them to do the dirty work for you and scare your opponents off.
When the game ends, players get victory points from the goals they have completed, as well as the monsters they have defeated and the gems they have in their hand. The player with the most points wins.
