We review the Zanafor's Discovery set for the HeroScape board game of fantasy battles!

The HeroScape: Battle of All Time board game is a game of fantasy battles where you control warriors that fight for control of magical springs. Check out the basic game review right here. The Zanafor's Discovery set gives you four new boxes of warriors you can add to your game. Here's a breakdown of the boxes.

  • Greeks & Vipers - Good cheap troops that are even better with their leader.
  • Soulborgs & Elves - The Elves are great, but the Soulborgs just slow the game down.
  • Lawmen & Samurai - The Samurai are good and power up when they defeat opponents. The Lawmen are cowboy heroes, each with different powers.
  • Heroes of Trollsford - These five heroes have weird powers, including a medusa that can turn units to stone and an elf wizard with the power to stop other characters' powers.
  • HeroScape: Zanafor's Discovery - Victory or Defeat?

    This expansion gets bonus points for not being packed with Utgar troops! It also has some good, cheap warriors with the Elves, Serpents and Greeks so make sure you get a lot of them. Two of the three cowboys are very cool, the third is only really good in battles with Deathwalker Soulborgs. The Soulborgs are ho-hum, even their hero. The wizard is only good in huge battles, but the other two heroes are really cool, especially Parmenio. He really powers up the Greeks!

    HeroScape: Zanafor's Discovery - Thumbs Up

  • Good basic troops.
  • Lots of cheap troops for small, fast, battles.
  • Non-Utgar troops!
  • HeroScape: Zanafor's Discovery - Thumbs Down

  • The Soulborgs are boring.
  • The heroes are so-so, but you need them to power-up the Greeks.
