The Goblin army has seized control of Draida Bay, cutting off supplies to the region. You must take a stand against the Goblins, but can you defeat the powerful Goblin General and take his Crystal of Deflection?
Tonight me and the Little Munchkin decided to try out the first of the Lego Heroica games I bought myself last week, Draida Bay.
Lego Heroica is in essence a dungeon crawl style game, with a gaming board of Legos and this one, the first and smallest of the 5 sets so far released is the introduction to the game system.
I took control of the yellow Barbarian model, while Munchkin took the red Wizard model. The box is for 2 players age 7 or up and takes around 5 to 10 minutes to play through.
The adventure started with the Wizard going straight forward from the boat and engaging the first of the 5 Strength 1 Goblins on the heroes path, while the warrior took the 'upwards' path if you look at the picture above to engage another one.
Munchkin managed to defeat his opponent at the expense of a life point, while I got wounded and thrown back by my opponent. At the expense of a second wound loss, I defeated the Goblin the turn after.
The Wizard then thundered into the room with two Goblins and defeated both of them, and grabbing the red healing potion. The Barbarian swiftly dispatched the Goblin by the waterfall, and both heroes advanced towards the Goblin general for the great show down.
Which ended in a total anti-climax as Munchkin rolled a Heroica Shield for his movement, allowing him to defeat one monster opponent within a 4 square range and even behind covers. One sizzling wizardry fireball later, Munchkin had defeated the general and secured victory.
I was severly beaten by the little one. I lost 2 life points and scored 2 goblins, while he only lost a single point, scored 3 goblins, the goblin general and stored the healing potion...
Someday next week I suspect where going to venture into Nathuz, when the girlfriend also joins in as we'll be needing a third hero for the adventure...
