HEROSCAPE

When and how did you get into Heroscape?

Thirteen years ago, my mother-in-law found a master set at Goodwill for $3.99. She thought my then seven-year-old son Julian would love to play with the miniature figures. My wife looked at the box and decided it might be worth learning how to play the game instead. It reminded her of the Heroquest game we used to play in the early 90s. We built a board and spent the weekend teaching ourselves and Julian how to play. It didnít take long for use to become hooked. We went out the following week and bought 4 master sets on clearance at our local Walmart. Needless to say weíve been hooked ever since.

Favorite unit (official/custom):

Cyprien Esenwein / the Varja.

Describe your favorite HeroScape moment.

My favorite Heroscape moment is when my son Julian won his first HeroScape tournament at the ripe old age of 12.
