Looking for 2 - 5 Brave Adventurers!

The dragon is awake and causing trouble for all the villages near their den! We need someone who can dance for the Forest Guardians, capture the dragon, and find out why they're so cranky.

Who dares accept this dangerous quest?

One Cranky Dragon is a set of three smaller games for young adventurers 4-10 years old or older adventurers who are young at heart. To stop a cranky dragon, you have to dance your way past forest guardians, dodge the dragon's attacks to capture them, and help them feel well enough to get some much-needed sleep. Players get to take turns being the Head Forest Guardian and the Dragon, so everyone gets the chance to play an adventurer!

One Cranky Dragon includes a large print that looks like a map, as well as a printer friendly version. There's a business card version that can be printed out for parties or conventions, though that will be improved in time.

Originally created for the One Page RPG Jam.

Completely and utterly wholesome and family-friendly! I am glad I got to see this take shape and if I had kids of my own, I would play this with them.

Wow, thank you so much! That really means a lot to us! 

This is absolutely great and the title is brilliant :D

Thank you so much! It means a lot to us that you like it!

I had a chance to playtest an earlier version with my son and we had a lot of fun. It is great to see how it has developed.

I hope you two enjoy the more developed version! Thank you both for all your feedback!
