Games Goes “Off The Charts”: Costa Rica and Dragonwood

Two games went “Off The Charts” this past Monday.  It was time to go exploring to see if the huckleberries were on.  We packed a couple of games that we wanted some play time on and headed to the Washington side of the Columbia Gorge.

After some exploring we found this ideal spot in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. This place had nature trails, natural bridges and an ice cave formed by collapsed lava tubes and plenty of ripe huckleberries.

After exploring the nature trails, bridges and picking huckleberries it was time to go exploring in a game of Costa Rica .

Costa Rica casts players in the role of explorers searching for wildlife in the Costa Rican rainforests. Explore the highlands, forests, and wetlands for toucans, monkeys, jaguars and more.

We found the ice cave refreshingly cool and the perfect backdrop for a game of Dragonwood.  Surrounded by a forest and a cave, one could only imagine what creatures were lurking about.


 Armed with a hand of adventurer cards we each chose our attack method in battling our way through the creatures that lurked deep in the heart of the mythical forest of Dragonwood.  As luck would have it in our dice rolls we each defeated a fair share of creatures and a dragon before the game ended.  Lynn was the most successful creature slayer.
