Hour of Need is a cooperative game of comic book action inspired by the costumed heroes that many of us grew up with. Using the Modular Deck System (MDS), also featured in Street Masters, Brook City, and Altar Quest, the game features incredibly modular gameplay using several different types of decks. Hero decks, villain decks, and issue decks can all be mixed and matched to create countless combinations of unique play experiences.

Miniatures

Each hero in Hour of Need is represented by a highly-detailed miniature, as well as each villain and their associated lackeys.

Hero Decks

Each hero in Hour of Need is defined by their unique deck of cards, representing their crime-fighting abilities. While each hero has their own playstyle, all hero decks share something in common in the form of heroic feats which make certain cards multi-purpose—do you want to play a card for its ability, or keep it in your hand to use its “toughness” heroic feat icon to protect yourself from damage? Managing your hand is crucial in avoiding crises!

Villain Decks

Villain decks are the primary opposition in Hour of Need. During the villain turn, each player draws a villain card and resolves its icons—these will spawn minions in scheme panels, trigger special villain abilities, or spawn perils & lackeys on the map. Additionally, villain cards feature “Showdown” effects that are resolved whenever a villain is attacked by a hero—if the heroes can first reveal the villain!

Issue Decks and Issue Boards

Like any good comic book series, Hour of Need tells its stories through issues—issue decks, in this case. Each issue deck is accompanied by an issue board that sets the scene for the conflict. The issue deck details the overall story and special rules for the game. Whether the heroes are attempting to thwart a bank robbery or prevent advanced weaponry from being stolen, the issue deck will provide the villain with their overall goal, which the heroes must prevent in order to win!

Issue Guides

The issue guide provides all the narrative and rules clarifications for each issue in the game. Players can choose to play a more story-based experience by reading each story point as its cue effects are triggered.

Hero Dice

Heroes must fight and solve their way through their enemies’ various machinations. Hero dice are used to resolve each fight and solve action, while focus tokens are used to mitigate these rolls.

Tokens

Tokens are used to track various game elements, such as how much damage a character has suffered, how much justice has been dealt to a problem, as well as where minions and bystanders appear on the board. Additionally, each issue introduces unique tokens to add another level of thematic immersion.

      Hi everyone!
      My name is David R. Sainz, a sculptor at Adaevy Creations. Welcome to my second Kickstarter campaign.
       
      In this second trip we will delve into Japanese folklore at the hands of the yokai, enigmatic creatures deeply rooted in the Japanese community. A selection of 8 creatures will form the basic set, which can be used for board games.
       
      The basic set of this collection consists of:
      OTOROSHI
      ONI
      KAPPA
      KARAKASA
      CHOCHIN OBAKE
      AKAME
      DOROTABO
      ASHINAGA & TENAGA
      Each miniature has its own personalized base. All the miniatures are scaled 32mm and 75 mm with high detail, so you can print it in any scale you want.

      Pretty straightforward, a lady with more or less clothes.

      Introducing "Misa, a Night to Remember"! 
      On our store there is already an alternative version of Misa. In this project we decided to make it with more accessories, and through the objects, a different pose and always ... less dressed!
      She will be available in 75mm as well as 32mm scale, base and fullbody. By pledging you will receive the .STL files (unsupported and pre-supported) once the campaign has ended.
      So Happy 3D Printing everyone!
