Fight monsters, gather materials and go on quests to gain power in this new customizable resource management RPG board game.

Ismia is in peril once again!

Click Play Die Games presents Heroes of Ismia, a new fantasy adventure resource management RPG board game. Players take on the roles of highly customizable Heroes, each with unique powers and endgame conditions, creating dynamic gameplay with high replay-ability.

Twenty years have passed since the great Demon Siege nearly brought the city to its knees. Now new dangers have emerged that threaten to destroy Ismia once and for all! A dragon has awoken in the Daggerspine Mountains, and is sating her terrible hunger on the villages of the north. A necromancer has risen a dark tower in Nara, to the east, and a scourge of the walking dead now plague the countryside. Amidst all this, rumors swirl that the Usurper King is once again rallying the forces of Anmarch to destroy the city of Ismia once and for all!

Ismia is in need of Heroes once again.

Choose a Hero and Start Your Adventure

 

Choose between 4 powerful Hero Classes: the reliable Fighter, the swift and cunning Rogue, the volatile Wizard or the versatile Cleric. Help us meet our $65k stretch goal to add 5 player support with the Ranger class to every game shipped! Each Hero also selects a Race at the beginning of the game. The four races, Human, Elf, Dwarf and Halfling, add further customization and flavor to your Hero in the form of additional powers.

Manage and Trade Resources

There are four limited resources to compete for: Gold, Wood, Stone and Magic Crystals. Balance your inventory carefully and gather the resources you need before another Hero takes them all! These precious resources are used to purchase training and equipment, procure healing at temples, and complete quests as you travel around the countryside.

Customize your Hero and Gain Power

Choose your favorite class and race. Complete quests to gain power and rewards! Select power cards to build your Hero to your play style. Will you be a powerful Dwarven Fighter, smashing your way to victory through hordes of monsters, or a swift and stealthy Elven Rogue, avoiding combat as you dash between quests?

Battle Monsters and Other Heroes

The countryside surrounding Ismia is full of peril! Monsters lurk around every corner and rival Heroes compete for artifacts, resources and fame. Build your Hero to overpower, outrun or outwit your enemies to survive!

STRETCH GOALS!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

In order to assure our backers that Heroes of Ismia is a great game and a safe investment, we waited as long as we could to bring the project to Kickstarter. We are still finalizing some of the artwork and game piece design, but the photos and video above show a game that is nearly ready to go to press. Our small team of designers and generous donations from our illustrators and play testers mean that we aren't prone to some of the financial pitfalls that hinder other projects. Our backers can be confident that their contributions will be going toward ensuring the highest possible production value and timely fulfillment of their rewards.

Fulfillment is one of the largest challenges to any project, so we will be using a trusted and experienced fulfillment service to ensure you receive your rewards as quickly and safely as possible.

POSSIBLE DELAYS IN SHIPPING:
Depending on the stretch goals we meet, shipment of the final game may be delayed several months as further artwork and play testing will need to be completed, but don't worry - it'll be worth it!

FAQ

  • The basic box set supports 2-4 players. The expansion included if we hit the $65k stretch goal will bring this up to 5 players.

    Last updated:
  • One game generally take about 45 minutes per player. It is one of our main priorities in current play testing to bring this down to 30-35 min per player.

    Last updated:
  • No. All game pieces shown are prototypes that were manufactured for press and play test purposes. The final game pieces will include standard sized custom dice, a more vivid and lustrous board and higher quality printing and card stock on the Hero sheets and cards.

    Last updated:
  • We would love nothing more than to work with Panda Games to manufacture Heroes of Ismia. Unfortunately the minimum run for manufacturing with Panda is 1500 copies. This means we need to hit our $95k stretch goal before we can use Panda Games for manufacturing. But don't worry! We are working with Quality Playing Cards and Games to ensure that the game will be manufactured at a high standard of quality in the event of a more limited run.
