Hello gang...i really want to get Defenders of the Realm for my family to play...but i was wondering, i will have five total players, is there any way to play with five players without having to buy the Dragon exp ?

Like maybe just getting the hero exp??

any help would be greatly appreciated

Inside the box, there are plenty of heroes (8, IIRC), so you could play with 5, technically; the only issue is that the game would be too easy.

A way to fix this would be to add a 4th card, during the set up, to place 2 minions, and an 8th card, during setup, to add an extra minion.

Here you go.

This is the official variant from the designer himself. It's a great game and the variant works swimmingly. We play with five or six more than with four, actually.

It was in the Variants section of the forum on the game page. There is some great stuff there; definitely check it out (this thread perhaps will get moved to the game forum at some point). Richard Launius and Dr. Crow are very active in supporting the game.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!
