Shifting Realms is Back!

Posted October 25th, 2017 at 06:46 PM by truth
Lead Heroscape designer Craig Van Ness' new company, Soaring Rhino is back with a new Kickstarter for their game Shifting Realms

As you may recall, they cancelled their previous Kickstarter for this game and have used that time to upgrade, upgrade, upgrade, the game compenents! Plus they were able to shave $5 off the price too! If you backed the cancelled Kickstarter, you'll certainly want to back this one!

As an extra incentive, if you buy at least one copy of the game during the Kickstarter we will give you a free year of Site Supporter status here on Heroscapers (after the Kickstarter is successful, just PM your receipt to @Xorlof )!

Soaring Rhino News

Posted October 16th, 2016 at 03:58 AM by truth
If you haven't been following It's Game Time, here's a quick update of what's been happening with Craig (and Jeff) Van Ness' new company, Soaring Rhino. First of all, they've finalized their company logo, and it's pretty sweet:

Secondly, they're starting to show-off a prototype for their first game, Shifting Realms (BGG entry). Here's the video:

They haven't revealed enough to know exactly how the game will play, but the video does give you the gist of what you're trying to do. I'm not sure how or if the 3 separate worlds interact or how your actions on one affect the others, but I'm sure those details will be revealed with time. We do know that it's got a variable starting setup, with 60 different configurations. That's always a win in my book. (While they said the prototype doesn't have completed art, I hope that...

Tail Feathers Preview

Posted November 10th, 2015 at 02:32 AM by truth
Note from Xorlof: y'all know about our very own Grungebob and you may know about his previous game, Mice and Mystics. In this article, he explains what he's been up to lately!


Hello Heroscapers, Grungebob here! Xorlof has been kind enough to allow me to use the front page of Scapers to talk about my newest game release Tail Feathers.

So some of you might not know who I am. My name is Jerry Hawthorne and I am a Heroscape fan. I got involved with Heroscape in 2004 before it was released, and I had the good fortune of meeting Craig Van Ness, Rob Daviau, and the other good folks at Hasbro who create cool games. I play tested for Hasbro and eventually freelanced for them on Heroscape.

I've always loved miniature games and Heroscape really struck a chord with me. My experiences with Heroscape have led to lifelong friendships and game design career...

Hyground Tiles

Many of you have probably noticed the promo for Hyground Tiles in the sidebar. If you haven't seen what these guys have to offer, check them out! They look very cool and have obvious use in Heroscape.

Their Kickstarter is underway and if successful, they offered to send us a bunch of their terrain for use to use as prizes for site members. Pretty sweet. (That's why we put up the promo in the first place, as a "thank you.")

If you want to discuss this project, the Hyground Tiles thread is here. This is going to be my first Kickstarter backing.

'Scaper-of-the-Month #88

Posted September 14th, 2013 at 12:54 PM by truth
Scaper-of-the-Month #87 is...


Who are you really?
I would have thought that by now you guys knew what the spy game was all about. Who you really are is a[b] question that never gets answered. Yeah I could lie with some philosophical answer explaining how, "who you were before is one person and who you become is another, so we all live this life not knowing who we really are". Or I could play the game and tell you that I'm an Arabic/Irish double agent named, Emir O'Scape. The truth is more simple though, I'm Matt Helm... nothing more would be of any use to you.
(Note: Check out this prior C3G interview if you'd like to push the issue)

How old are you?
Pick a number between 40 and 45... you probably got it right.

What is your occupation?
So you're saying that "government agent" isn't good enough of an answer? Would you rather I say "assassin", or simply "spy"? I do have...
