Visit us online at www.GamelynGames.com to learn more about Heroes of Land, Air & Sea and other great games.
Note: ONLY Heroes and Mercenaries (not including the Nomads) are offered as pre-painted minis.
Heroes of Land, Air & Sea is a 4X style board game (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) for 1-6* players that plays in 2-3 hours (30m/player), and features 80 highly detailed miniatures and over 30 constructs! *Plays up to 6 players with the deluxe expansion. It is easy to learn, simple to play, and won't take up your entire weekend. It is a Scott Almes design after all, designer of the Tiny Epic series.
Heroes of Land, Air & Sea is this simple: each player performs two actions per round. You can take a Capital Action, which could be followed by other players by using a serf. Or, you may take a Conquest action, which can be mustered to allow you to double down on your own actions. After each player has taken their two actions, players will collect resources based on the regions they control and then start a new round. This continues until a player triggers one of the four end game conditions: Expand, Exploit, Explore, or Exterminate!
In Heroes of Land, Air & Sea, Scott has us warring across a giant game board (26 x 26 in. that extends to 39 x 26 in.), sailing the great blue sea in boats that actually hold your minis!
And soaring through the clouds with minis on the backs of dragons, griffins, and in airships!
Heroes of Land, Air & Sea is the classic tale of orcs vs humans and the warring factions of a fantasy realm. It is a game of territory control, resource management, mastering your faction and exploiting your opponent's weaknesses.
In Heroes of Land, Air & Sea you'll have 3 heroes, each with special abilities that will become more powerful as the game goes on. You'll have 5 warriors, which will defend your capital city and conquer regions across the land. You will also have 12 serfs, who are used to collect resources, build buildings, as well as take extra actions through a clever follow mechanic. Serfs are a limited resource, so you must deploy them wisely in order to ensure victory.
Will you rely on the resourcefulness of the Human's? The strength of the Orc? The ingenuity of the Dwarves? or the magic of the Elves?
In Heroes of Land, Air & Sea, every decision is a meaningful decision and players will need to be clever to claim victory. One way to surprise your opponent is through well timed use of SPELLS! The effects of which range from resource gain and buffs to your army to interrupts and counter spells.
But the focus is always on the 4 X's: eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate! Each of them represent an end game trigger.
Heroes of Land, Air & Sea features a giant 26 inch by 26 inch beautifully illustrated 4-fold game board, and expands to 39 inch by 26 inch with the Expansion board!
During play, the land and water regions will feature exploration tokens that offer surprises to the players brave enough to enter.
Once the final exploration token is revealed, the end of the game is triggered.
In Heroes of Land, Air & Sea you will need to expand your kingdom, your army and your reach. Building certain structures in your Capital will allow you to recruit Heroes!
And, Heroes become better as you level up your Capital City.
Recruit all of your serfs and warriors and you'll trigger the end of the game!
This wouldn't be much of a 4X without the most important X, exploitation! Simply collecting resources and turtling in your castle won't get you very far in Heroes of Land, Air & Sea. Players will need to understand the strengths and weaknesses of their faction and that of their opponents to assure victory. Part of that is knowing when and where to build your towers to secure area control. Build 3 towers and you'll trigger the end of the game!
Heroes of Land, Air & Sea features a luckless combat system that requires timing and wits. To resolve a war, players compare the strength value of their armies, as modified by their selection of a single Tactic Card, highest strength wins. Each player has an identical deck of 7 Tactic Cards and, in each war, must secretly choose one of the 7 to play in conjunction with their army.
This gives players perfect information on the potential maneuvers of their opponent. But, how you will exploit this during play is up to you to discover!
Destroy an opponent's Capital City and you'll trigger the end of the game!
Victory points can be earned during play for winning wars, casting spells, and certain hero abilities; and at the end of the game for certain units trained, regions controlled, buildings built, towers built (based on their distance from your Capital City), and the level of your Capital City.
Whoever have the highest victory points at the end of the game, wins!
Don't miss out on expanding your game to support 5 and 6 players and getting 4 more incredible factions. The stalwart Lionkin, the ravenous Undead, the tribal Lizardfolk, and the sprawling Goblins! You'll want to try them all!
Mercenaries are a Kickstarter promo that will not be available in retail, though future players will be able to buy them directly from Gamelyn Games. For backing us on Kickstarter, you are getting them for FREE!
In game, the Mercenaries are essentially super buff Heroes available to purchase for any player. First come, first serve. They are usable with any number of players. If a Mercenary is ever defeated in battle, it returns to the general supply and is again available to all players.

READ FIRST: videos of the game do not depict the exact components you will receive. It is too cost prohibitive to create prototypes with 80 miniatures. So, the prototypes featured in the videos have standee characters instead of miniatures. Also, some rules may have been tweaked during development but these videos will give you a great feel for the game so we've decided to include them. For exact details on the components that you will receive in the game please see the components list and images above. For the most up to date rules, please download the prototype rules HERE. Thank you.
We're doing things differently than other projects. We are not "gutting" the game only to give it all back to you as Stretch Goals. We are offering a fully loaded premium product right from the start. Essentially we have already built into the game the majority of the "would be" Stretch Goals. Therefore this project may not have as many Stretch Goals as you are used to seeing. We hope that you enjoy this fresh approach and offering, and we hope that you are still willing to share this project up to the end.
Additional Stretch Goals are given to every backer of the Core tier or better, unless otherwise stated on the Stretch Goal graphic.
This concludes the stretch goals for Heroes of Land, Air & Sea. Thank you for all your support!
Instead of surprising you with shipping costs AFTER the project is funded just to offer you a low upfront price, we are charging the shipping now. You will NOT be hit with additional shipping charges from us after the project ends. In most cases, you will not be hit with customs or VAT either as we are offering Customs Friendly Shipping to the countries where most of our backers are located.
Your rewards will be shipped at our cost to our international hubs. Based on where you are located, we will either ship to you from our hub in Germany (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or New Hampshire (USA and the rest of the world).
Backers who do not complete their pledge manager by the deadline, which will be made clear via an email notification, may need to have their rewards shipped from the US. This may incur additional shipping charges to international backers that would need to be paid for at that time.
Due to the size of the rewards and risk of bounce back, we cannot ship to PO Boxes domestically or internationally.
Shipping Rates are described below: (Base / Deluxe)
