Re: Magic: the Gathering Strategy Board Game (Looks HeroScap

Visiting other sites talking about it, everyone else it saying it looks like a variation of Heroscape. So at least Heroscape it well known elsewhere.

I really hate it when they slap a big named, super successful line on something new (well, in this case, it just seems like heroscape) or innovative and destroys the opportunity of it being its own thing. Like how many things just turn into Star Wars oriented; I'm not a Star Wars fan (it goes without saying the original 3 movies are great, the recent 3 and pretty much everything else is terrible, it just ruins it for me) so I'm just not into it. In this case it seems like it's just riding any heroscape popularity and pushing Magic. So it's not really new, but they still are tagging a big name to it. Like really, does Magic need more things? How about try to come up with a new universe or story or characters, etc. to use fresh game mechanics/ideas.

However, it's pretty awesome for custom Heroscape. C3V will like this indeed.

Re: Magic: the Gathering Strategy Board Game (Looks HeroScap

I'm not a fan of Magic, either, though I used to be. Heck, I used to run tournaments. But I'm excited for this, partly because it'll raise the profile of Heroscape and thus (hopefully) the Heroscape competitive scene. I love me some tournaments.

Re: Scape-ish Relaunch?

So this is what WotC was going for when they took over Heroscape...

I hope this sells relatively well because I have a ton of terrain that has been collecting dust in my room for a couple years. The maps that could be make with the excess terrain will look really nice. I am cautiously optimistic .

Re: Magic: the Gathering Strategy Board Game (Looks HeroScap

All good points Cleon and Dad_Scaper. Let's hope, in a funny sort of way, that Magic becomes the gateway game to Heroscape. We'll get new players into the game and get figures to use as customs. Or the Magic players will look down on Heroscape as a kids game and the figures will be crappy. I guess it's way too soon to be either optimistic, or pessimistic here.

Re: Magic: the Gathering Strategy Board Game (Looks HeroScap

A ton of my college friends are big into magic, so maybe this is what's needed to get them into Heroscape.

Re: Scape-ish Relaunch?

Not a fan of the solid color miniatures. I wish they'd charge more and include painted minis.

Those are mainly mock-ups, as far as I'm aware.

There is a painted mini in the set. I the unpainted ones are supposed to be fiery, like the Fire Elemental.

Look at those cards. It's @#$%ing Heroscape! Squads, hit zones, everything!
