    Hilarious satire, clever art style, and increasingly complex gameplay make Here Be Dragons a pleasant experience all around. Mild mechanic hiccups blemished my experience from time to time, but not enough to discourage from taking to the sea time and time again.

    Essentially a board game with deeper game mechanics and an enjoyable plot, Here Be Dragons is sure to pose a serious challenge to those who will make the mistake of underestimating its difficulty.

    Hilariously funny, ridiculously cute, and generally well put together, it only suffers a bit from an increasing reliance on RNG over strategy as the game wears on.

    While it initially took me a while to get into, and the random nature of the encounters can sometimes be annoying, there’s a lot to enjoy with Here Be Dragons.

    Here be dragons is a proposal that manages to enchant us with its successful naval combat system and particular aesthetics, but that after several hours of play, does not get better. More innovation, complexity and a multiplayer option are missed to get into its competitive mode more than ever. We find ourselves with a simple and challenging bet, which solidly takes advantage of its basic premise in the use of the turn-based combat system. An entertaining title, but it also has factors that could be improved and polished.

    If you ignore the game's terrible sense of humor it's a pretty engaging take on the tactical genre.

    Sometimes, beautiful graphics and interesting dice-based combat just aren’t enough, like here, where the story is weak, the humour is hit and miss and the sense of progress is non- existent. This game is strictly worse than Dicey Dungeons.
