I picked up Hero Kids after my 6 year old son found my old set of DnD dice and kept asking to play that game with the cool dice.
I bought the whole bundle, for a great price, and got to work with setting up for the first adventure... Basement O' Rats.
With my son as the knight and my 4 year old daughter as the hunter, we started the adventure.
They grasped the basics of the rules quickly and could easily keep up with the turn sequence. My daughter lost interest about 3/4 of the way through, but my son was engaged through to the end. He even made a new character with custom powers and wanted to fight the rat king again.
All in all a great value for the money and I have barely scratched the surface of what came in the bundle.
The rules are simple and sufficient. The adventures are very easy to run. The extras like equipment cards and pets are goin to add to replay value and setting up an extended campaign.
The only thing I can think of to improve this game is to add a leveling system. What kid doesn't want to get stronger, faster and more powerful? I'm certain that I will be homebrewing a leveling system before too long, but I would like to see the author address this especially because of the amount of work he has put in to make Hero Kids complete.
