I am trying to find a game that I had a starter set to when I was younger. I tried doing some online research, but honestly, I don't even know where to start and I can't find anything for it at my local comic/board game shop. I think that it was named something-"scape". I believe that I bought it sometime between 2003 and 2007, but my memory could be a little hazy on that that.

The Board

The board was different every time you played because it was made up of a bunch of chunks of hexagons (like honeycombs) that you could put together any way you want. You could even stack them on each other to create different levels. The hexa-combs were made out of plastic and I think they kinda clicked together.

Gameplay

Disclaimer: I was a kid when I played so I could have been disregarding any number of rules and not playing correctly at all, so take this with a grain of salt. You controlled a few different heroes and/or monsters (I remember a dragon that took up 2 spaces and I think an archer of some sort?). You moved around the terrain you built and did battle with the enemies heroes/mosters. I do not recall if it was a dice-based game or not. I think each character has a stats card. Unfortunately, I don't remember much about how it was actually played.

Expansion Sets

As I said, I think I had a starter set, which seemed to be generic-fantasy themed, but I think there were other sets that could be bought that had heroes/monsters from lots of other genres and more hexagons so that you could wind up with a huge battle with tons of genres mixing it up.

Can anyone point me to this game?

The game is called Heroscape. It was primarily fantasy based, but there were some other expansions like a Marvel themed one. The game was discontinued in 2010 but Wizards of the Coast has recently created a Magic: the Gathering board game called Arena of the Planeswalkers that seems to have similar gameplay.

  • @Pants I haven't played it myself, but I have heard good things about it. I have played Arena of the Planeswalkers once or twice and enjoyed that.
