Players who go into this one looking for a wargame will be very disappointed. I like it, but it has more in common with "El Grande" than with "Risk." Worth noting: Every demo I ran sold a copy. The game is VERY good.

This is a light, area-control, "dudes on a map" game in the spirit of Risk, but in a fraction of the playtime. Even thought battle outcomes are determined by a single, solitary die roll, it's still good fun if it is taken in the spirit that is was intended.

Light area control game with small amount of combat. Feel with 2 or three played more warmonger players may want to double the combat values so that they have more effect.

Good with children as game as title suggests has a large amount of historical references.

A Nobrainer. If you have a son, 15 years old, he like to play risk, then is heroes a wonderful game. It's a "Mehrheitenspiel" as we say in German, not a Wargame and so, I like it.

Good, light civilization game. Easy to play, and with enough options to make it interesting. You want to set up the player to your right to score for you, so you'd better throw him a fat bone!

There is nothing new or original in this game (beyond, perhaps the Heroes themselves.) It's light and short and uses little plastic figures to disguise the lack of depth.

And yet it was terrific fun - a game filled with what I call "anecdote moments". This isn't a game in which serious gamers can plot a careful strategic plan, executing clever tactics. No, this is a game in which Napoleon tries to conquer America and gets defeated straight after George Washington tries to do exactly the same thing...

I like games with maps, lots of cards, plactic pieces and rules that can be remebered rather than looked up all the time. So I like this.

This game has elements of several other popular games and when mixed together, the result is a pleasurable experience that doesn't require an entire evening. There is a bit of the following games found here: History of the World, El Grande, Web of Power and Ticket to Ride. There are two distinct parts to the game. The Ancient Period is simply placement and dominance - rather static. The Modern Period is dynamic with troops flowing all about as (1) there are more troops available and (2) there is more money available (compared with the first era).

Sometimes the choices are obvious while often one has that familiar problem of wanting to do several things and not having the resources to do them. The rules are no more difficult than a Ticket to Ride game and the game should never last more than 90 minutes. I have never played in a game that anyone was zapped out of the competition early. I have seen the last place player (in the first era) win the game. My only gripe is that I wish there were additional eras; that the game lasted longer - and that is a good sign.

Excellent game. Nice components. Simple and fast area control of the world. You will have a good laugh and enjoy the game that at times are intense. The combat should have been better but it is simple. A keeper!

Very enjoyable area control game. Play your historical figure hero cards and take the appropriate actions which involves gaining gold, placing armies and building monuments.

Good looking game, plays well and is suitable for families.

In 2 tijdsvakken (Ancient en Modern) scoren de spelers punten door historische figurenkaarten uit te spelen die elk verbonden zijn met specifieke regio(s). Deze kaarten laten toe om aantal legers te plaatsen, eventueel een aantal ontdekkingen te doen die in de vakjes gelegd worden van de regio(s) waar de figuur invloed heeft, een aanval te plaatsen, en geld te verwerven. Er zijn ook wonderkaarten die in de moderne tijd zwaar kunnen doorwegen. De ontdekkingen hebben een naam en een puntenwaarde, maar leveren geen specifieke eigenschap op, wat enerzijds jammer is, maar anderzijds het vlotte spelen ten goede komt. Geen civ-builder dus, ook geen historische simulatie, maar wel een meerderhedenspel met een extra.

When the game was explained to me, It sounded like there would be extreme balance and luck problems. Moreover, the "we saved on graphics by using public domain stuff" was at odds with the molded plastic pieces, which didn't bode well either.

However, when I actually played it, it was WAY better than I expected. The cards are more decently balanced than I thought at first glance, it's easy to hedge your bets against the "luck" elements, or to avoid them if you don't want to fight, and though it LOOKS like there is kingmaking at the end, generally the reality is that players can only go in one of a couple of places by the point where it would give that impression, so they're just making do with what's available (so what really mattered was whether you put yourself in a position where someone might be best served tearing down someone for some 2nd place points for themselves).

Definitely one of those games where people might let their pre-judgements mess up their perception of how it actually plays out.
