MACE 2019 Featured Demo: H.E.R.O Card Game

MACE 2019 will feature official demos most of the weekend of a newly independent card game called H.E.R.O by Wesley Cone.  The game’s designer will be demoing it all weekend at MACE 2019. Please see our gaming schedule through OGRe.  You must be registered for the convention to register for games.

My name is G. Wesley Cone, and I am the creator of H.E.R.O. Some of you may remember me from MACE 2018 or ConCarolinas 2019 . Well, I’m back and stoked about getting this game moving forward.
