Our fantasy RPG Argor isn’t specifically aimed at kids so doesn’t qualify for DrivethruRPG’s Teach Your Kids To Game Week sale. However, with it’s easy-to-learn game mechanics and Argor Lite option, it’s very suitable for use with younger gamers. So we’re running our very own sale from now through to 22nd November: during that period you can get Argor FRPG at a whopping 30% discount! Just click on the image below to go straight to the sale page.
In its new guise as Dorking 1875: The German Conquest of Britain, the old Draken Games favourite is now available as a high quality physical product from Tiny Battle Publishing. A downloadable version will follow. To find out more, click on the cover picture below.
Good question! A while back I got an email from the nice people at Tiny Battle Publishing, a new company just launching its first titles. They had heard of 1871: The Battle of Dorking and were interested in buying the rights to it. I must admit I was torn. On the one hand, I’m very proud of Dorking: it’s true to the story that inspired it and I still love playing it. It is easily my best selling wargame and it’s been great to have it as part of the Draken Games portfolio. On the other hand, sales have dwindled over the years and it would be great to see a nicely produced physical version of the game, finished with the sort of production values I’ll just never be able to manage.
So after some deliberation I am bidding a fond farewell to the game. I am also retiring the free expansion 1871: Last Stand at Surbiton.
The new game will be called Dorking 1875: The German Conquest of Britain. Why the name change? Well, firstly to make it clear it’s a different version of the game. I’ve been working with the TBP people to update the rules. No changes to the game mechanics, but the format is quite different. And… ahem… the date? Well it turned out that while the battle is usually associated with the date of Chesney’s original story (1871), if you check the dates he gives in that story, it must actually be set in 1875. Oops. Well, at least that is rectified now!
I’ll post an update when TBP launch the re-vamped Dorking. Meanwhile, why not check out their website?
To distract me from my ongoing FUMING at my stupid bloody computer, there is at least the Christmas in July sale at drivetrhrurpg.com and the Summer Campaign sale at wargamevault.com. Both last until the end of July and both feature 25% discounts on ALL Draken Games products.

Just where is it? Well I had a double-barrelled freebie planned this time: an Argor mini-scenario AND a mini-wargame all ready to go but, with just the finishing touches needed to the RPG scenario, my damn hard-drive broke, totally and very permanently. And no I hadn’t backed it up lately. So…. back to square one.
Apologies for the delay!
I’m really pleased that our RPG resource Arkadon Castle has attained Copper Seller status at driverthrurpg.com. This was a family-effort, with Middle Daughter supplying some art and Youngest Daughter working on the interior design of the castle. The idea was to provide a setting for a scenario or skirmish in a fortification typical of the sort owned by minor nobility.
It costs just $1.95, if you fancy taking a look just click on the image below.
