The Heroscape line of toys is like the all-star game of make believe. While other games might focus on a specific era of history, the age of chivalry, perhaps, or the Jurassic period, Heroscape puts everyone together on one enormous madcap battlefield. Vikings, World War II soldiers, ninjas, mutant monsters, samurais, dinosaurs, dragons, robots, they’re all there, done up as tiny, highly detailed figures. It would be sort of comic if all the players didn’t look so gosh-darn serious.
Hero-scape Master Set is a customized 3-D interlocking battle field, and stages the final battle of all time with heroes and warriors of legend and fantasy. It comes complete with miniature playing pieces and 10 battle scenarios that players construct terrain with. Cards govern the progress of the game as you strategize to beat your enemy. Rolling the attack and armor dice lets you move about the board. Friends can bring their own armies for endless variations. Expansion sets, featuring new characters, terrain tiles and more, are sold separately. First, design the 3D landscape of your choice by laying out any combination of the 85 interlocking, plastic hex-shaped pieces. The fact that these can be assembled and stacked in new ways each game means the ensuing battle also changes every time you play. The above mentioned fantasy heroes and historical warriors now converge on your newly created terrain to move, attack, and defend. Multiple dice and game cards indicate combat powers and movement abilities.
