DieHard Gamefan's 2011 New Game System of the Year!
The Master Deck is available at your local store. Just ask them for a copy
Compact Heroes was originally a kickstarter project that was met with huge success. From that project, the game has grown beyond expectations, having recently won Diehard Gamefan's 2011 New Game of the Year. Because of this rapid growth, there has also been rapid revision in order to bring you the most professional product possible.
The original version as the Starter Deck. This included over 100 cards that gave you all you needed for 4-6 players to play the game, starting at character creation all the way up to low-mid levels. Almost immediately following, three expansion decks were also released: Unleashed Hordes, Creature Pack, and Adventurer's Pack. Each of these expansions included 50+ cards and included new monsters, advanced skills, and new magic items.
This format was great for the small scale. However, for a retail ready game, it was decided that a different format would be needed. Enter the Master Set. This new set is an actual boxed set for added durability for storage. It includes more than 150 cards, as well as two six-sided dice and one twenty-sided dice--everything you need to play except a pencil. By going to a Master Set, it gives players more cards that allow them to play their characters all the way up to higher levels, encompassing a more complete game.
