Mainly this is bags of zillions of Lego bits, as you’d expect. In fact I found it all slightly daunting. It’s not just zillions of bits – it’s zillions of different and very specific bits. I’m clearly going to have to pay attention to the assembly diagrams. Luckily, they are written for 8-year olds, so they are almost a brick at a time…
And speaking of adventures, if Nathuz isn’t big enough for you they designed all the Heroica boxes to go together to make up this enormous dungeon shown on the poster in the box. Why do I always read that as Fortran?
But I’m rambling. I said I’d tell you what’s in the box. Well, the box contains lots of bits of Lego together with one of their DIY Lego dice. It also has an assembly guide, a poster showing the last steps in assembly plus how to join all the boxed sets together (above) and a little comic strip. Finally there is a rulebook in multiple languages. The box itself is not a traditional rigid card box, but uses a light corrugated card to get a similar rigid effect and feels nice and sturdy.
All told the box is a little over half full. However, I expect it will be useful for storing the half assembled game between sessions. Also, the game is cheap. For the money it felt like a fair amount of stuff and a good price to encourage kids to buy it themselves rather than wait for a birthday to get it.
