Hero Realms - Board Game Box Shot

Hero Realms

20 2

The Hero Realms base game, like Star Realms, combines the fun of a deckbuilding game with the interactivity of trading card game style combat. Each player starts with a ten-card personal deck containing gold (for buying) and weapons (for combat). Each turn you get a new hand of five cards from your personal deck. When your deck runs out of cards, you shuffle your discard pile into your new deck.

Shared between all players is an 80-card Market Deck. The game begins with five cards from that deck revealed, creating the Market Row. As you play, you use gold to buy champion cards and action cards from the Market. These champions and actions can generate large amounts of gold, combat, or other powerful effects. You use combat to attack your opponent and their champions. When you reduce your opponent’s score (called health) to zero, you win!

Gameplay
Each player starts with an identical 10 card deck. The person who goes first gets to draw 3 cards from his/her deck. The other player(s) draw 5. A card can contain one or more of the following symbols:

Health Icon: Add the number to your total health

Combat Icon: Choose a player or their champion to deal damage to. The player has to subtract the damage from their health, if you target a champion, you have to make sure you can take them out or they will heal themselves before the next turn!

Gold Icon: Use the gold to buy more actions and champions from the market

On top of these symbols, a card can have an effect written on it. They are pretty self-explanatory.

When you played all the cards you had in your hand and used their effects, you put all the cards, except the champions, in your discard pile. The cards you bought from the market you bought also go there. You now draw 5 cards from your deck. If you don’t have 5 cards in your deck you take the cards you do have and shuffle your discard pile so it becomes your deck.

If you plan your strategy well you will take out your competition and win the game.

Our opinion
The game is easy to play and quick, which makes it very nice to play if we need to kill some time or aren’t feeling like a heavy game. The mechanics are very solid although the rules about preparing a champion can be kinda confusing as the rules don’t go into it enough.

With how the mechanics of the game work it can be difficult at times to draw what you need, or even to find something in the market. This especially happens when high-cost cards dominate the market early in the game.

But all by all, it’s an amazing game that you should definitely give it a try for the cheap price it’s selling for.

Should you get it?
If you are a fan of quick 2 player games that appeals to either casual and competitive players, then yes, go get it right now!

If you rather play this sort of game with a space theme then go check out Star Realms. We will do a review of star realms soon so stay tuned!

Trust us, you won’t go wrong with any of the 2 games.

Happy playing!
