Hero Realms is a fantasy-themed terrace building game that is an adaptation of the award-winning Star Realms game. The game includes basic rules for two-player games, as well as rules for multiplayer formats such as Free-For-All, Hunter and Hydra.
Each player starts the game with a personal set of ten cards containing gold (for purchase) and weapons (for the combat). You start each round with a new five-card hand from your personal game. When your game is exhausted, you mix your discard into your new game. An 80-card Market deck is shared by all players, with five cards from this game revealed to create the Market row. While you're playing, you're using gold to buy champion cards and market action cards. These champions and actions can generate large amounts of gold, fights or other powerful effects. You use the fight to attack your opponent and his champions. When you reduce your opponent's score (called health) to zero, you win!
Many extensions are available for Hero Realms that allow players to start as a particular character (Ecclesiastes, Fighter, Ranger, Thief or Wizard) and fight cooperatively against a Boss, fight Boss Decks against each other, or compete in a campaign mode that allows you to gain experience to work on different levels of missions.
