According to the BGG "version" information, this expansion is expected to ship January of 2017. When it does ship, I would appreciate if someone could either reply to this thread, or post a new thread in the News forum.

Also, is it true that this expansion is required to play the game as a co-op? The Hero Realms base game is strictly competitive, right?

Not strictly, no. If I recall correctly, there will be one or two Kickstarter promos that will be a Solo/Co-op bosses similar to the Nemesis Beast and Pirates of the Dark Star bosses for Star Realms. If you can find a scan of the cards (which should be uploaded soon after the first backers get them), you should be able to play with just the retail base game.

Also, the Boss decks (Dragon and Hero Realms: Boss Deck – The Lich) are one against many, so you can play coop with a group of friends as long as one person agrees to sit out and control the boss.

I'm also interested in news about this.

And also about the solo/co-op cards.

Don't get your hopes too high for these co-op cards, though. They're random as hell and so hard that they become uninteresting. Unless you like losing by turn 4 with nothing you can do about it.

So to play Hero Realms: The Ruin of Thandar Campaign Deck, I will need the Hero Realms base deck? Or I can just buy the Campaign and play it?

You will need the base game and a character pack for each player.

MSRP is $20 (base game) + $20 (campaign) + $5/player, in the US. Cheaper online. Your local prices will vary, obviously.

That's true for every WWG. The low entry point for their game is deceptive, as the expansion are very expensive and I feel like they're needed pretty fast.

That being said, these are good quality games, especially when compared to their direct competitionners (Ascension and Magic: the Gathering.)

I would advise you wait for reviews before ordering this campaign. There are plenty of other options out there that could satisfy you.

By the way, I took on Tibus (the solo challenge) with a character pack yesterday and won. Now, I was admittedly very lucky in what the opponent drew. But my starting deck, which let me heal and had guards to tank damage (and I could +1 my champions each turn, that helped).

So, if you're still considering getting Hero Realms because you want to play against the solo challenge card, get the character packs. Otherwise, forget it altogether. The base game is for PvP only. The starting decks are too weak to take on anything else.

None, nothing in the Kickstarter either.

Here's the best answer of the comment section:

Hey all,
Sorry I haven't updated in a while. I don't like to update when I don't have concrete things to report, and we have been stuck in the "almost done" stage on the campaign for a couple of months now. Lots of little decisions to add another card here, upgrade art there and such have been the source of the delays.
I'll post a full update when files are submitted to the printer (probably in a few weeks). That way I'll be able to give a concrete estimate on when the campaign will be ready to ship. I'll include a link for a print and play of chapter 1 of the campaign with that update so you can all try it out!

I also believe that you met the King of the Forest, Mei, and meeting him is a sign of good luck.

Shipping to backers in September, so probably November/December for retail.

After insane amounts of hard work from the whole White Wizard Games team, the Campaign Cards are FINALLY ready to go to the printer!!

What was originally planned to be a 55-card product with a rules sheet has grown to 150 regular sized cards, 8 oversized cards, a rulebook, and an adventure book!

I apologize that this product is going to get to you so late (my current estimate is that we will be shipping to backers in September). On the plus side, you are getting a much more awesome product then we initially planned at no extra cost.

I think I broke my thumbs up button from clicking it so hard! This is great news. We enjoy playing Hero Realms in VS modes, but there are some imbalances. Playing as a team will allow the imbalances to simply be individual character strengths. Very happy to hear this is coming in 2017.
