In Hero's Crossing, there are only 4 heroes out at a time, but more show up as you play. Your town has to constantly evolve to meet the demands of new heroes as they arrive. Game Card Design, Board Game Geek, 8 Bit, Pixel Art, Card Games, Meet, Concept, Play, Frame

Hero's Crossing

Players build towns & shops to sell goods to wandering heroes.

Here's a single player's town in a game we played. This particular player was doing pretty well, ready to sell a bunch of stuff to heroes. Tabletop Rpg, Single Player, Clash Of Clans, Cubes, Pixel Art, Board Games, Buildings, Purple, Pretty

Here's a close up of a single player's Hero's Crossing town in the late stages of the game. You'll notice a mix of land, buildings, and special tiles. On top of the tiles are resources (the little cubes) and spies (the purple meeple). This player was doing really well! #tabletop

A wandering singer and storyteller, the Bard is loved wherever he goes - too much, by some accounts. It is rumored that his harp has been enchanted, causing listeners to be subtly enthralled. More than one married woman has secretly passed him love letters, earning him significant distrust and jealousy. Still, he is regarded as mostly harmless; he tends to leave a town before he overstays his welcome.

It's time to talk a little bit about our grand plans:  The Hero's Crossing Kickstarter is coming in *October*. Specific date still TBD, but expect it on the mid to late end of the month. After that, it's going to take a few months to get the game into full production - and the holidays will undoubtedly derail things a bit.    That puts our board game on your tables early next year - optimistically late February, more realistically late April. We know you want it sooner, and we're working… It's Coming, Hard To Get, Working Hard, Board Games, Knowing You, February, Tables, Things To Come, Dating

It's time to announce the winner of the Hero's Crossing art contest! We've decided this piece by Elliot Taffin is the winner! We received a lot of awesome images, but we loved what Elliot did taking the idea in a completely different direction. He really captured what a game of Hero's Crossing looks like, and his piece has a ton of character. Thanks for such a great picture Elliot!
