Hoard Review (GameSpot)

Dragons have it uncommonly rough: When players aren’t trying to stick a sharp piece of steel between their scales, they’re sticking harnesses on them and forcing them to fly around at their bidding. That all changes in Hoard, in which you become a dragon and bathe the countryside in flames while amassing your own hoard of gold. Along the way, you roast scores of knights and thieves seeking to beat you into submission or steal some coins for themselves, and you even have to fight off rival dragons that try to pilfer your stash. When coupled with several elements of real-time strategy games and the general feel of an old-fashioned board game, this simple concept renders Hoard a refreshing and engaging multiplayer game with only a few downsides.
