About Dragons’ Den The Official Game

Marking the first time a game based on Dragons’ Den has been released on any mobile platform, you play as one of five virtual Dragons all with different skill sets, with each player being pitched five different products or services from aspiring computer controlled entrepreneurs. These are all based on real-life products or inventions, so players must decide whether or not to invest. Their aim is to choose a‘Goldmine’ investment and avoid the‘Flops’ with the overall goal to be the Dragon with the most profit after three rounds of investment.

Dragons’ Den The Official Game also features a multiplayer mode for up to five players. Each player takes turns to decide the investment while the computer AI randomly chooses the order of the Dragons. Each Dragon will then be prompted to take their turn deciding if they want to invest or not.
