Two more Hero Kids reviews...

Here are a couple of quick reviews of Hero Kids:

My Hero Kids And Their First RPG Session
"I recently introduced my board game loving boys, Josh (11 years old) and Evan (9 years old), to role-playing games. It was a fantastic experience..."

Board Games With Geeklings: Hero Kids
"I’m going to abandon my usual 1 to 5 scale for this game and say that if you enjoy RPGs and you have kids and an extra $10, this game is worth having."

Hacking Hero Kids...

A few industrious and creative parents have taken the time to hack Hero Kids into different genres.   Andrew Judge has created a beautiful Mouse Guard hack (borrowing some of the images from the real game), and Ted Arlauskas went the extra mile and created sweet new hero cards for his Star Wars hack!

With all this inspiration, I'm working on some new heroes...   :-)
