There is a new game on Kickstarter that lets you be a Super Hero! How awesome is that?! This game has everything a gamer could home for. You can play by yourself or with up to 4 other people, uses cards and a board and the game changes every time you play. Always fun and never the same game twice. Perfection.

Heroes Wanted is a tactical card and board game for 1-5 players. In Heroes Wanted, players will play costumed superhero-hopefuls, attempting to fulfill their dreams of becoming a member of Zeta City’s exclusive crime fighting super team, The Champions of Zeta City. Each time you play, you will choose a scenario and face a different villain (or villains), but the objective remains the same: gaining as much fame as possible by KO’ing minions, completing headlines, and thwarting the villain. At the end of each game, the superhero with the most fame is the winner and joins the prestigious ranks of The Champions of Zeta City.

This game looks awesome and my husband and I cannot wait to play. The Gentleman is excited too so I will have to figure out a way to teach him to play too. I just hope he can wait while I get to play and figure out how to teach him first!

This is the first game by Action Phase Games, a game design studio based in Indianapolis, Indiana.

In under 48 hours Heroes Wanted was funded on Kickstarter and has since met tons of stretch goals. You can still go and back it there and get in on the awesome deals they have for backers! I have to wait until I get paid again…but this is one game we will for sure be backing.

Heroes Wanted sounds like the perfect game for any gamer and anyone who loves Super Heroes or wants to be one. Personally I can’t wait for this game to come out!
