Heroscape Battlefields and Game Scenarios
A game of Heroscape really begins with building the battlefield. Your Heroscape Master Set offers several to choose from, and they can also be found right here on this website. Link and stack grass, sand, rock and water tiles to form cliffs, mountains, rivers, overhangs and more. The level-by-level pictorial guide makes building your Heroscape battlefield easy and fun!
Each Heroscape battlefield includes at least two exciting game scenarios. The scenario you choose will show you how to set up your game and explain the victory conditions for each player or team. Play them all, and then try creating your very own Heroscape battlefields and game scenarios!
Gathering Your Heroscape Army
Once your Heroscape battlefield is ready, it's time to gather your army. In the Basic Game of Heroscape, the armies are pre-set for both players. Just decide which army you'll lead, then take those army cards and place those figures according to the setup guide in your Basic Game scenario.
The Heroscape Master Game offers more choices for gathering your army. Choose your favorite Heroscape Hero or Squad figures, not exceeding the point total for that scenario. When playing a Heroscape Master Game scenario, you can either bring along a pre-made army, or you can take turns "drafting" army figures until all players reach the point total for that scenario.
The Heroscape Battle Begins!
Have you chosen your armies and placed them on the Heroscape battlefield? Now you're ready to rumble! The game of Heroscape is played in rounds. Each round is made up of three turns for each player. On a turn, each player will generally do these three things: 1) Choose an army 2) Move one or more of the figures on that army card 3) Attack with one or more of those figures.
Heroscape Figures move, attack and defend according to the Move, Range, Attack and Defense numbers on their army cards. Battles are resolved by rolling the combat dice. The attacker rolls the number of attack dice listed on the army card, hoping to roll as many skulls as possible. The defender rolls the number of defense dice listed on the army card, hoping to roll enough shields to fend off the attack. If the attack is successful, the defender is destroyed and removed from the game.
The Basic Game rules of Heroscape are designed to introduce the novice player to the turn sequence and basic rules of moving and battling. The Master Game of Heroscape features advanced movement and combat rules along with special powers that will challenge your strategic skills to the max!
How To Win A Game of Heroscape
Whether you're playing the Basic Game or the Master Game of Heroscape, each scenario has a victory condition. The first player or team to meet this condition wins the game!
The victory condition may be as simple as destroying all of your enemies. While it's always satisfying to be the last one standing on the battlefield, you'll often need to do something more (or at least different) to win. Some scenarios in Heroscape require that one army be the first to reach a certain spot, find a certain artifact, rescue a certain figure, or survive until a certain round.
