One of the visual hooks of Hero's Crossing is that as you play the art style evolves from 8-bit to 16-bit to 32-bit, mimicking the evolution of pixel art in early video game RPGs. Do these guys remind you of anyone? #boardgames

It's not just hero art that evolves from 8-bit to 16-bit to 32-bit as you play, the buildings do as well. In this picture, you can see just how stark the visual difference is between a low powered Level 1 building and a fully upgraded Level 3 building. #pixelart
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 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!
Hero's Crossing doesn't have a lot of direct confrontation, but the bidding systems can create some cutthroat gameplay with players fighting over who gets what. What are some of your favorite games with bidding systems? #heroscrossing
