Who can you trust in this game of deception and shifting allegiances? Even those who are silent may be lying to your face. You must summon all your intelligence and intuition to identify friend from foe and turn your enemies against each other to survive. You must fight for survival as you are plunged into the war between Zombies, Survivors, and Maniacs, taking on the roles of up to 14 unique characters with special abilities and innumerable combinations. Only your cunning and quick thinking can lead you to victory.

You’ve only got to make it through the night—do you have the brains to get the job done?

About HERO Card Game

HERO CARD GAME

An Expandable Card Game (ECG)

H.E.R.O. is an Expandable Card Game, meaning that the initial game contains the full game at purchase. H.E.R.O. comes with two enhancement decks, 21 recruitable heroes, and 24 abilities to draft from when building your personal enhancement deck.​H.E.R.O. is a game for all levels of gamers ages 10+. H.E.R.O is simple to learn, at 1 page of instructions, but requires much deeper thinking to master.

Know yourself; know your opponent.

H.E.R.O. has been likened to many other games including Naruto, MTG, Smash-Up, Yu-Gi-Oh, etc.

​While baring similarities to each, the mechanics are a unique combination of drafting, recruitable heroes, recovery of fatigued/injured heroes, building a strong hand of cards, simple stat boosting, heroes that learn new abilities, various phase options for every turn, direct attacks, combined attacks, and of course–ability combinations.
