Fire Emblem Heroes-Inspired Board Game Is Perfect For Fans Of The Series
Fire Emblem Heroes has been a massively successful mobile game ever since it was released almost a year ago. That said, its summoning system is based on the Gacha system and as such can be pretty taxing on dedicated fans’ wallets. Thankfully, there is now a bit of an alternate that is much more wallet-friendly. A board game designer has created a Fire Emblem Heroes-inspired board game that takes many of the fun elements of the mobile game and throws it onto a board game, minus the chance-based summon pulls.
The Fire Emblem Heroes-inspired board game is designed by Brother Ming, who says his adaptation was “inspired by the board game design philosophy of quick, fast, but deep gameplay.” The adaptation is titled ‘The Unofficial Fire Emblem Heroes Board Game’, and it involves dealing ten cards to each player, at which each player deploys their units in order to seize control of the map center in order to earn points. There are plenty of tactics involved, including the triangle based advantage/disadvantage system that rests at the heart of Fire Emblem Heroes’ gameplay.
One of the best parts about the board game is that it is almost completely free. Ming has the files for the game available on his website, where those looking to test the game out can follow a simple Dropbox link in order to print out the necessary files. Those looking to purchase a “professionally printed copy” of the game can do so as well. The base game comes with the following, and costs $17:
- 75 cards on 3.5″ x 2.5″ premium cardstock
- 1 Clear Plastic Deckbox (Holds up to 120 cards)
- 9 map tiles on 8″ x 10″ premium cardstock
Those looking to drop some serious cash on The Complete Collection can so do so for $50, and it includes the following:
- The Base Game
- The Seasonal Units Deck
- The Waifus & Husbandos Deck
- The Dice Set
- The Fold & Glue Game Box
- And enough card sleeves for all the cards!
Fire Emblem Heroes is now available for free for Android and iOS mobile devices.
