Were any of the tiles you broke Swamp, or Asphalt, or Dungeon? I think this issue was addressed years ago after a couple of the early sets.
it was grass and sand that broke, although on the discord I was given the heads up that my lava tiles may shatter in my hand if I even pick them up lol.

In all seriousness, I kept my game in good condition, well organized in a closet. It shouldn't have been subject to the elements. I hope that the new game has upgraded terrain quality.

For those about to scape, we salute you.

Mine is doing ok, even though some of it was left in a non insulated garage for a few years. Yeeeaahh, those ones are wrecked.

Re: Re-introduction Thread

Greetings all, received my first box of 'Scape for Christmas from my parents pretty early on. Played on and off with my brother in Kansas before following my eventual wife to Ohio. In my time here I mostly lurked on the forums and did play in a couple of local-ish tournaments. After we got married a part of me always looked forward to sharing my 'Scape with my children. Fast forward a few years and we had two and were running out of room for my collection to be (and they were still too young to appreciate it, in my mind at least). It was eventually decided that it needed to move to a friend of ours dry basement and there it has stayed for two more new arrivals. Fast forward to current day and we are attempting to buy a bigger house and I am having day dreams of having my collection out and being able to play with at least my boys, but my girls might be interested too, I don't know. Just gotta' get this wrapped up so we can move and I can play again.

I must say that all the reveals have really re-ignited my eagerness to play and I am going to probably back at one of the higher levels (I'm assuming there will be more than HeroQuest's two) as soon as I can. The kids have looked over my shoulder at a couple of the concept images and said "Oh dad, that looks pretty cool, what is it?" or something similar and I just give them a knowing smile.

Re: Re-introduction Thread

Good times.

I started my addiction in 2005 and was a member of all the now defunct web sites. I baled out on new purchases when the D&D stuff hit. In the past decade I've probably only played HS three times. A year or so ago I sold a fair chunk of my stuff for obscene prices, but I still have two or more of almost all figures up to D&D (except Aquilla' Alliance because, well, cha ching)

I've returned almost exclusively to my war gaming/ historical consim roots. I popped back in here to see if there were any actual cards available for the relaunch. When news of the relaunch hit I was happy for those interested but figured it would be a hard pass for me. But then my interest was piqued.

Having seen the offering I seriously doubt I'll back it. The main reason is I don't think it would get played. But even if I were still playing often, I find most of the minis unappealing. I do like the new walls, though. If they ever are sold individually I'd probably grab a set since I've sold off all my castle sets (again, cha chaing)

Anyway, it has been fun reading through this thread. I haven't finished it all yet, but figured I'd post my own reintroduction.

Humorous tangent. We got a cat recently and named him Brave Sir Robin.

We have a tournament coming up on 10/15 in College Park, old man. If you're interested.

Re: Re-introduction Thread

Hey all!

Was super into scape back in middle/high school, have tons of great memories playing forum games like the caves. Not sure if that's still going on but might need to take a peak over if it is!

Fingers crossed for the new set to come to life, and might have to see if any of the old crew still lives in the area and would want to get together for a game or two. It's been probably over a decade and I just found my old stuff lol.

A wizard is never late, nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.

Re: Re-introduction Thread

CoN?
Been inactive for awhile but I think a little more interest could spark a revival.
Welcome back.

IMO, Dad_Scaper is one of the coolest names on the site. Really a reminder of what makes heroscape so special (the family aspect). not to mention, it marks you out as an OG. Given how many father-son pairings there are in the heroscape scene it feels obvious that you would've needed to be on the site really early to mark yourself as the definitive heroscaping dad, with there being so many now

New terrain is supposed to be a much higher quality. And only RotV had issues with brittleness and maybe VW - it was fixed by SotM & BftU
