Hi - I am new to BGG - hope I am posting this in the appropriate way.

I have bought a used Heroscape Rise of the Valkyrie Starter Set. It is complete except that one of the 2 *ruin* pieces is missing.

How important is this piece? can I replace it with something homemade (e.g. from cardboard)? do I need to replace it at all?

Would appreciate any ideas / advice.


Regards,

AJ

It looks cool. The shape and height will theoretically change Line Of Sight. Can it be replaced? Sure, but a few instances might be off by a hair.

Its HeroScape. Don't let it worry you. If everyone in the ga,e is playing with the same terrain, its fair.

    Ten seconds into the game you won't notice it's missing.

AJ,

If you look at any game page, in the Statistics section, you'll see an entry labeled "Has Parts for Trade." The number next to it shows the number of people with extra parts available. Click on it to see details. The link for Heroscape is here:

I don't think you'll have too much difficulty finding a replacement if you really want it. Many people buy multiple sets, so they're definitely out there.

Good luck!

It could affect the balance of some of the scenarios listed in the book. If you have an instance when it seems to be critical for a defender you would probably want to substitute it with something to block line of sight. Have fun with it and be thankful it wasnt a figure or another critical component missing!!!

Definitely not required, and you can replace it with cardboard or whatever you want.

Try playing without it for a while. If you like the game, you'll be buying more starter sets for the terrain anyway devil

Re: Advice neede - Re Heroscape Rise of the Valkyrie Starter
Why not buy a completely new master set:

For 6 quid you'll double your play area and get an all new set of minis and ruins.

If not, then I would agree with the above, the ruins are a nice addition, but one less wouldn't impact your games much.

Seriously, avid heroscapers will have multiple sets and I'm sure that someone that has 3+ base sets would be willing to part with one of those pieces.

I've got 9 sets - I'm sure that I could spare one. Drop me a private message with your address and I'll post one out to you.
