Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

Legends of Andor is a cooperative adventure board game for two to four players in which a band of heroes must work together to defend a fantasy realm from invading hordes. To secure Andor's borders, the heroes will embark on dangerous quests over the course of five unique scenarios (as well as a final scenario created by the players themselves). But as the clever game system keeps creatures on the march toward the castle, the players must balance their priorities carefully.

At the heart of Legends of Andor is its unique narrative, the linked scenarios of which tell an overarching story as the players successfully complete objectives. For each scenario, or "Legend", a legend deck conveys the plot of an ever-unfolding tale...one in which the players are the protagonists. A wooden marker moves along the board's legend track at key points during each scenario, triggering the draw of a new legend card, the introduction of new game-altering effects, and the advancement of the story's plot. In the end, the players must endeavor to guide the fate of Andor through their heroic actions, bringing a happy ending to their epic fantasy tale.

Will their heroes roam the land completing quests in the name of glory, or devote themselves to the defense of the realm? Uncover epic tales of glory as you live the Legends of Andor!

Errata

Using the original German version as a reference, some versions need corrections:

  • You do not have to stop when entering a space with a fog token. You should only reveal a fog token if you stop on a space with a fog token.
  • Silver event card 10 (Gors ravage the countryside): It should refer to the wizard and the dwarf.
  • Silver event card 8 (Forest fire): There are no numbers for the forest squares as these are different on the landscape and subterranean sides of the board.
  • Golden event card #27 ("a blind frenzy seizes the monsters"): With 3 heroes, they must spend 4 gold/willpower points. With 4 heroes, they must spend 6 gold/willpower points.
  • Golden event card #4 ("Poisonous vapors from the mountains..."): The heroes in spaces 37 to 70 lose 3 willpower points.
  • Golden event card #6 ("The dwarves trader Garz invites one of the heroes for a drink"): The hero may choose not to roll.
  • Golden event card #7 says that the lower level hero roll a die. The card says that "Each hero" loses the result in WP. Should be "The group" loses the result in WP.
  • Creature tile: "Place one skral in space 19 and the players as a group gain 5 willpower points."
  • Creature tile: "1 Gor on space 12, 1 gold on space 15"
  • Legend 2, card A2: After positioning the heroes, put gors in places 8, 20, 21, 26, 48 and a Skral in place 19.
  • Legend 3, Fate card 2 ("An exceptionally strong gor..."): You only have to participate in the defeat of this gor.
  • Legend 3, card Dark Magic - The Empowered Gor: The gor has just twice the strength of the attacking heroes.
  • Legend 4, card B, third paragraph under "The Boulders": The hero's battle value has to be equal to or greater than the value of a boulder token in order to clear a boulder.

9 El poder de un héroe
Ante lo dificultoso que a veces se presenta el juego, he creado unas cartas que se asignan a los jugadores al principio de cada Leyenda (excepto para la Leyenda 1, por considerarse tutorial) y que representa un poder para cada uno de los héroes (incluídos Orfen / Marfa). Esto debería ayudar un poco más a los héroes y facilitarles un poco el camino. Para activar dicho poder, basta descartarse de la correspondiente carta (cada héroe, la suya) y llevar a cabo los efectos descritos en la parte trasera. El poder puede activarse en cualquier momento, siempre que sea el turno del jugador cuyo héroe vaya a activar el poder. El tamaño de las cartas es "Mini Europeo" (45mm x 68mm), para distinguirlas facilmente del resto de cartas del juego.
