You get to play 3 Heroes - Barbarian, Wizard and Thief (hardly considered "hero", but I know it is a D&D class by itself).
Optionally, you can also add a player to play the dark side whose mission is to use Monsters to defeat Hero(es) twice (same or different). So up to 4 players can play.
I think this game is a great idea. You can reconfigure the map and make your own adventure. Lego is very suitable for that. You can even throw in your own Lego piece although they would likely be thicker and the map would be 4x more spaces. You can think of them as mountains.
I have to take out 1 star because the rules are not clear or not well thought out:
You may not step over another Hero or Monster. There aren't that many spaces in the game. Sometimes you found yourself not able to find a reasonable close space to place your Hero. It is not clear what you should do if you are stuck behind another Hero who is blocked by an obstacle. Or if you need to move back 1 space but other Heroes are blocking you.
There are Weapons which you can buy with 3 gold pieces. But the official rule is very stingy in giving gold pieces. One way is to find them in 1 of the 2 Treasure chests, which statistically means 0.667 gold piece per chest. The other is if you are a thief and you defeated a Monster with your special skill. Which statistically means less than 0.2 gold piece per Monster. By far the easiest way is to pick them up along the path.
On average your Hero moves at 2 to 3 spaces per turn. If your goal is to kill the Monster Lord, you can often finish (and win) the game in a dozen turns.Read more ›
I created a simplified version of the D20 rules called Crypts & Critters that I used with Playmobil figures. Playmobil figures come with a multitude of accessories so my four-year-old can easily see what his knight is wearing or wielding. Although the rules were fun, my love of dice complicated things. Rolling different dice, comparing numbers, rolling damage - these are things veterans Dungeons & Dragons players like, not four-year-olds.
LEGO showed me how to do dungeon crawling right with Heroica. Drawing on kids' love of building stuff and the appeal of a dungeon crawl (a modular design unto itself) Heroica combines the best of both worlds. It's like a three-dimensional, configurable version of the Rogue computer game.
We received the Caverns of Nathuz set as a review copy from LEGO, who was kind enough to send the set my way after I missed them at Gen Con. When I opened the set, my boy's eyes lit up at the little fiddly bits. And there are a lot of fiddly bits. A LOT. At first I was frustrated by all the pieces and components, which range from weapons to magic items to monsters to terrain. Some of the blocks are just set pieces, others are critical to the game, and still others seem to be replacement parts.
I stuck with it. While I built the set as closely as possible to the accompanying poster, my son was content to play with the hero pack, a combination of hit point counter, monster trophy, coin purse, and equipment rack. If you lose a hit point (red cones) or gain gold (gold cones) you simply add or subtract them from your hero pack. If you defeat a monster or purchase an item you add it to your hero pack.Read more ›
1. The board is configurable. Having creative control over board designs is really cool and we like to experiment with different layouts.
2. Other Heroica sets can be purchased and combined with this one to create bigger boards with multiple areas.
3. The design aesthetic is charming. The characters, enemies, weapons, and environment pieces are creative, colorful, and well designed.
4. The rules are involved without becoming too complicated for kids. The basics can be learned within a few games with just about everything coming down to the roll of the dice and each character's special skill set. Also, the rules lend themselves to customization and we enjoy experimenting with variations on the default rules and creation of new ones.
5. The game plays pretty quickly. We seem to average about 20-30 minutes per game if we don't rush through it.
6. Setting up = building with Legos = fun!
If I have any gripe about Heroica, it's that strategy doesn't play a bigger role. There are weapons to buy, coins to collect, treasures to find, and potions to earn, but pursuing those elements doesn't make any real difference. In fact, I find that avoiding those elements of the game entirely in order to make a bee-line to the finish is actually a more effective way to win. But to play that way is to miss much of the fun. I wish the rules made the coins, potions, treasures, and weapons more essential to the gameplay. I guess we'll have to find ways to come up with our own rules to accomplish that goal.
All in all this is a great game for kids and for families with kids. We love it!
