Heroica Lego ohgodIwantthisnow


Way too excited to type in proper sentences.

Lego Games have finally seen reason and made a fantasy dungeon game with expansion packs It's so very wrong and so very right. Look it even has dice and ickle character sheets! (on right)

Lego Games: Heroica: Castle Fortaan. Somebody tell Billiam that it's not Warhammer Quest
-he is blinded by the Lego.
  It has to be better than Minotaurus and Shave a Sheep.
The links on the Lego site are saying it's not available yet in the UK (WTF!), but there's some pre-order links on Amazon (Kisses Screen)
This reminds me a lot of various dungeon game experiments which have been around on the net for years, leaving us all to go scrabbling for grey flats, swords, axes and Gamorrean guards  (citing the mighty BRICKQUEST!) - Lego dungeons are worse than LARPing for compromise and improvisation, but it has to be one of the ultimate merging of pleasures!

Castle Fortaan on the Lego site.
Heroica Lego dungeon game! on Amazon UK.

  1. OMFG.


    why the hell did they not come out with this stuff when I was a kid? I loved D&D and Legos! I would have been the perfect demographic!

  2. Tell me about it!
    The Star Wars Lego sets triggered a second childhood in me. Those evil Danes. Lego is a Viking conspiracy! :D

    (Keep up the cool posts on Cafe Obscura btw ;) )

  3. I played all three scenarios of Castle Fortaan this morning with my son. The game is great and reminds me of the old times with Heroquest. You get to keep the loot from one mission to the next. I just wish I had bought the other three expansions too.

  4. That's exactly what I wanted to hear, Razsk!
    You get to carry over heroes between adventures? :o
    Lego are clearly some sort of capitalistic telepathic drug dealer!

    Thanks for commenting. :)
