HEXplore It is a hero-building adventure board game system.
Select your hero by combining two character options: your role and race. This combination drives your hero’s strengths, weaknesses, and defines your special abilities. Travel across the map earning power-ups by completing quests and battling opponents of multiple types.
Move carefully to avoid many dangers and travel from city to city, visiting shrines and ruins along the way. Gain power quickly, for the Dead King also moves... he destroys the cities while you frantically gather the power necessary to stop him. For each city the Dead King destroys, he gains more power.
The object of HEXplore It is to power up your heroes as quickly as possible, to eventually defeat the Dead King himself. The game is won if you confront and defeat him, bringing light back to the Valley.
