Enter a world of fantasy and adventure. A fast paced card game for 1-5 players. Enjoyable by casual and strategic players.
Play an immersive adventure game inspired by fantasy dungeon crawler.
Dark heroes offer a deep adventuring experience that sets up in 1 minutes, has no player downtime and you can finish in 30 minutes.
1 to 5 players become Dark Heroes, forming a team to kill the evil creatures, but competing among themselves to have all the glory of their adventures.
The Ashkeh’s king has convened the greatest adventurers of the Kingdom to assign them a noble mission: Chase away the frightening creatures that inhabit the territory. You have bravely answered the call, and go therefore in shipping with other heroes who are as unconscious as you. But will you be the bravest ?
Many quests await you. Some bring a lot of glory, while others provide enhancements to the heroes’ capabilities, or provide weapons usable later. To harvest honours from a quest, you must be the most powerful hero, and the use of your special power or weapons can help you get there. But when they use their special ability, heroes consume their power.
See this 2 minutes video to understand the basic mechanics :
Dark heroes is an adventure game, designed in the spirit of a dungeon crawler, but optimized :
- to be playable quickly (rules explained in 3 minutes)
- for short sessions (30 minutes)
- without a tray of game (a very portable game)
- without a Game Master (everybody plays really)
- to limit the chance (no dice, your choices will determine the evolution of the game).
The action doesn't stop, be ready to make wise choices and think strategically.
Play as one of 10 playable heroes : the charismatic warrior, the stoic shaolin monk, the terrible necromancer, the noble master of weapons, and many other… Each hero has his own unique abilities.
(2 of the heroes will be available only for kickstarter backers).
You like the idea of the game but you want to try it first? We are giving the Print and Play file for free, so you can try the game!
The extension adds more combat cards, which enables up to 8 players to play the “Dark Heroes”. It equally brings new quests to the adventure, and the appearance of magic cards.
Usually, when there are a lot of players, some games become so long and boring. That isn’t the case here because, while the first 4 or 5 heroes in that order are resolving a quest, the last 2 or 3 stay in the camp and compete for progress in magic. This training takes place at the same time with the quest, and this therefore makes the game no longer than it should.
There are many reasons for which we need your help and we are grateful for the trust you deposit in us.
