Hoarding Games And You: A Dragon’s Story

In the game of Havok & Hijinks, a handful of precocious young dragons are tasked by their parents with going forth into the world and starting their own treasure hoards. Whether it’s because the parents are simply sick of sharing with their offspring or that these little ones don’t fully appreciate the effort involved into amassing and coveting large swaths of treasure, we aren’t sure. Treasure hoarding can be a full time job in and of itself for a dragon, after all.

This, game puts you into the role of these mischievous (not to mention adorable) youths and asks you to get as much treasure as you can first. Some of that will be based around finding these items in the wild:

hh gem


Or swiping them when no one is looking:

hh steal 2


Or managing to steal those items back:

hh recover


The point is, even though this is a rather simple task, you’ll need to be prepared to defend your hoard as best you can!

We are no dragons, but us humans can be pretty good at hoarding too. So we’re running a contest this month all about that.
