Sometimes a digital board game comes along that just screams awesome. And Here Be Dragons definitely fits into that category. It's a strategy battle game set before the journey of Columbus, and sees you trying to clear the sea of monsters.

Obviously everyone involved in such an endeavour is a little on the bonkers side. That's what happens when your day job involves taking down giant leviathans and kraken.

The monster-smashing here is turn-based, and there are plenty of dice rolls and other twists to make sure you stay engaged. Plus the game looks like it's taking place on an old map, which is a neat look indeed.

There's some pedigree behind the game as well. Marek Panczyk, the creator of the game, also developed the digital versions of Neuroshima Hex, Eclipse: New Dawn for
the Galaxy, and Caylus.

We've known about Here Be Dragons since 2014, but a lot looks like it's changed in those four years, and it's going to be super interesting to see what form it takes when it actually comes out.

The game is set to land on the App Store and Google Play Store in the first quarter of 2019. We will, of course, keep you up to date with any more information as and when we get it.
