An awesome, infinitely modular, and completely customizable way to game and use all of the legos from my past to build awesome things. Plays like dnd lite. Very fun.

This game is only limited by your imagination. The base rules are workable but leave plenty for your own interpretation. That alone makes it a great game to play with your kids or adults.

My son and I bought all four boxes while at Disneyland. Then we spent 2 hours building and playing all four games right there in Disneyland. Talk about having fun!

Fun with building Legos followed by playing an easy game that has enough twists and turns to keep adults occupied and fill little ones with a sense of adventure. A hit in my opinion.

Brilliant little game.
Delivers what it promises and more.
Probably the best dungeon boardgame around and can be played by a 4yo under light supervision.
Luck dependant but includes subtle essential decisions: a little distraction in the end game is fatal.
A bit pricey though.

My children have never reacted as positively to a game as they have to Heroica. My 5 year old son is asking to play it every night. My 9 year old daughter is already creating house rules to make it more complicated/interesting. It's the first game to inspire her to create house rules.

It felt like Christmas opening up the Lego Heroica sets, as this is the first Lego set I have opened since my childhood. It was a blast to put the modular board together and the game itself was fun and simple. A few house rules tweaked and this game will be around for a long time!

Rated as a children's game. Very well designed, captures many elements of a dungeon crawl. Functional and elegant gameplay. Quick enough to keep young children interested. I was impressed with the care placed in this game.

After three plays with my children (7yr & 10yr):

This game is really fun for them! They are not bothered by the simple mechanism of roll and move and are absorbed by the little choices they can make and the items they can pick up. They are really excited. The game captures their attention fully for half an hour or so.
I my self would rate this game 5, But for my children this is a 10!

Hard one to rate: as a game, in and of itself, it's just roll-and-move. But as a customisable system, where the kids can make up their own *rules*, it shines. My rating here reflects what I (as a parent) think it's worth (as an experience) to kids, in terms of encouraging their own creativity.

This rating is from my son's perspective (6 yr old). He loves this game, and asks me to play it all the time. It's a great intro into rpg type games. It is mostly luck based, but the components are awesome. When we finish our games my son will often just spend an extra half an hour just playing with the goblins and heroes. Overall it is a great game for my 6 year old. If you have kids age 5-10 they will most likely enjoy it.

LEGO makes a dungeon crawling a ton of fun by being able to build your dungeons. TONS of room to build your imagination and the rules are easy and fun to learn. Great for kids. Unfortunately out of print.

[Children's game] Pure distilled awesome wrapped in coolness and delivered in fun-filled fifteen minute bites.

The base set of the LEGO Heroica series. Even when combined with all four expansions, the table space needed is still only about the equivalent of one regular-sized gameboard.

When I first heard of this, I thought that standard minifigs would be more fun and expandable, but actually the microfigs are a lot better as game pieces. Also, it is quite amazing how much thematic detail they have managed to cram into the microfig scale terrain.

Very cleverly designed series: All expansions deliver new types of microfigs and gameplay elements, so all packs are interesting and useful.

Sure, the ruleset is very loose but if you really need to play this with adults only, it is very easy to refine the rules to a reasonable level.

Easy to pack away without total disassembly: I managed to neatly pack all five sets in the boxes of Waldurk and Nathuz. I only had to remove the tiles that connect the large base tiles.

304 pieces, including:
- heroes: barbarian, wizard, druid, knight
- monsters: 6 goblin warriors, 4 goblin guardians, goblin king
- potions: life, luck, speed, strength
- quest item: helmet of protection
- 2 treasure chests
- 5 doors (3 wooden, 1 portcullis, 1 open) and 4 keys
- 12 spare bits not included in the count

[Children's Game] Great introductory dungeon crawl for my 6-year old. Basically just roll and move, it does its job well. We played it co-op so as to keep it from being frustrating.

Not really for adults - go get D&D Ravenloft instead for a similar but more sophisticated experience.

Very enjoyable. My rating is towards the high end of my scale for a kids game. My son and I will be playing this for some time, and most likely be getting some expansions and combining with other stuff.

I think Lego has finally hit their sweet spot as far as the customizability aspect of their games - the modular dungeon is well-implemented, and I even feel for once that the rules are actually rules, not (as elsewhere) sort-of an idea for a game, using the "build your own game" angle as an excuse.

Honestly, what makes Heroica work (in part) is that it seems like you're making a lot of decisions, but for the most part they don't matter. For example, in out first game my son and I took different paths, and I ended up with five gold before he had any. I worried that this would lead to a runaway victory and dampen his enthusiasm for the game. But, money really isn't as important as it seems - once you have enough to buy a weapon, the game is nearly over, and there's a good chance there won't be enough turns left in the game that you'll even get to activate it. But in a game where I'm playing against a seven-year-old, I consider this a good thing! (and whaddya know, he won.)

Overall we are happy with Heroica. It delivered a lot of things we like, if not all the things we hoped it would. It is not a replacement for our favorite dungeon crawl games. It is not an expandable system for character vs. monster fighting. It is not an RPG for kids. But, it is a fun little game with LEGO bits that will keeps dads and kids engaged.

This is a very light dungeon-crawl... with rules for "overlord" vs players or "every man for himself". It's going to need some tweaking to make it really sing, but the basic idea is very, very cool. My boys (6 & 9) are in love with it.

I would rate this a 5 but it's rated how my 8 y.o. would: Not much of a game in the box as practically everything is dependent upon a die roll, including how far you move. I played three times with my 8 y.o., and started the first game enthusiastically playing up our actions. By the third game, I was faking it pretty well, but inside I was thinking that this was exactly repeating the previous two plays. We thought of many house rules, and perhaps if she wishes to keep playing we will implement them, but I'd be more than happy if she decided to just play with it as a toy. On the bright side, during our last game, she asked when we could play Castle Ravenloft again.

The "game" here is pretty straightforward and random.

But this gets huge points for being kid friendly, and for being a wonderful display of LEGO "microbuild" architecture.

The modular nature also means the kids can have fun making up their own scenarios.

A great game for the right audience. My two children (seven and four years old) loved the first session, and we played the three maps published with the game end-to-end. My seven year old then promptly went on to design his own dungeon, and we played our way through that!

Sadly, a couple of the other LEGO games that we had previously bought (Minotaurus and Ramses pyramid) fell a bit flat, either through lack of interest or unclear rules, but this one appears to be a winner. And the best part is: it's LEGO, so it's infinitely expandable.
