Last time we saw you, you were trying to kill everyone. What are you up to these days?
The new year begins with a casual clash between bizarre armies in the world of Heroscape!
Here we go my friends, a fresh new year that promises many, many hours sitting around a table with friends, there to experience drama, humour, elation, tension, excitement and joy. Yes, it’s the sublime hobby of tabletop gaming!
Let’s kick it off with something that doesn’t stretch the old brain cells too much: a fun game of Heroscape, which my friend and I enjoyed last month just before he headed back to Australia again. This classic may be a bit laborious to set up (and pack up), but it’s always a great choice if you feel like a bit of miniature gaming without all the kerfuffle of complex rules. Roll some dice, kill some things, have a laugh! Enjoy!
Love this game! And it is more expensive to buy now that it is a “dead” game than it was when alive!
That very often happens, sadly. The concept of ‘second-hand’ has, unfortunately, long disappeared from Ebay, and now it’s bloated with dodgy sellers breaking up games and selling individual bits for ridiculously inflated prices. It’s a real shame.
AT-43 ONI faction being a very pertinent example of this 😀
@UH… Are all you robot/golem impressions based on ED-209?
Ahh, *that’s* where I get them from. Good call! 🙂
A few minutes into that report and my…what the heck is this game about…went to…what did he mean with “not perky as usual”…seeing all those perky robot and samurai enactments 😉
True, we did perk up a bit as the game progressed! That’s the power of Heroscape. 🙂
Bought this years ago. Never played the actual game, but the components and minis are great for use in other games. Like AT43, I regret not buying more when they were for sale and the secondary market is over priced! But I was lucky to get the boxset with the transparent, sparkly water hexes so if I need a new kidney I can pay for it with money from selling them! 😉
That was so annoying when they changed the water hexes! Cheapskates!
