So sorry... this game is SOLD OUT 😢

Briefest Write-Ups in history continue!!

OK folks… it’s the holidays… things have maintained a frenetic pace… I have not finished building my time machine… and well… poetic ramblings? Literary prose? Is there enough time, darn it?!?

Sadly.. not just yet. But someday…


Basic Info 😬

I present to you… Keep the Heroes Out Kickstarter Edition… with all the Kickstarter stretch goals… and the Guild Master’s Revenge and Great Dreamer expansions.. but this time there are no more deluxe tokens – sadly. These games are all part of the second wave shipment of the KS games that Luis had sent over… and unfortunately, the cost to re-make the deluxe tokens was just too much. Still, even without that slight bump in bling, this game has a ton of cool bits and bobs and is great fun!! Yes, please! 😊❤️🎉

Kickstarter Campaign Link – to check and see all the juicy bits!

I do want to at least post a link to the original Kickstarter campaign… so you can see for yourself how sweet this one is! 😉 The original Kickstarter campaign can be found HERE.

Again… sooo sorry, everyone! I’ll get back in the swing at some point… argh! 🏴‍☠️

Am I generally a fan of cooperative games? No.

Is this game amazing and do I HAVE to have it in my collection? Yes and YES! 🔥

Keep the Heroes Out is an asymmetric, cooperative dungeon defense game for 1-4 players where you play as the monsters protecting their hard earned treasures against invading hordes of looters (so-called heroes) trying to steal it.

In their turn players draw 5 cards and play, these cards allow them to move, activate the tiles they are to perform the tiles actions, attack heroes, and move their units around. After each player, draw and perform cards from the heroes deck.

Your goal as a team in every scenario is to survive the 3 levels of threat from the invading heroes by protecting the treasures on each room. If the main treasure is taken, the game ends and you lose, but if you manage to protect the treasures for long enough, you all win.
