The game is excellent. It gets played with regularity in our group. It usually results in other purchases at the FLGS. People like it and go to buy it after playing. It does help that the game has a low price point.

Biggest thing I see is that the size of the game box and play time implies that the game is light in game play. It is not. This is a serious game that challenges the best players. So, maybe players sit down expecting one thing and experience a different game instead.

RoH plays like a more complex Onitama or Small World. Both Small World and RoH have no/minimal luck. In RoH, the mapboard building is randomized and that is it - from then on the game is about skill.

In Small World, the map is static. The race and ability tile setup is random. Each paired tile set is selectable to be your race and that gives you certain advantages during your turn. Additionally, each combat occurance is decided by a die roll - luck.

Realm of Heroes has no dies rolls. When it is your turn, there are things you can do and things you cannot do. What you choose, and only what you choose, determines what happens next. I find that to be fascinating, as does our game group.

Give it a try!
