What It Is
Ilrion is the latest build and play adventure game in LEGO's Heroica line. As with other games in the series, this 240-piece game set centers on the battle between the heroes and the monsters. In this game, the battle takes place in the catacombs of the Heroica world.
Throughout the game, players will find different gaming elements that provide health or challenge them in their battles as they descend into the catacombs. As they move through the game, players will have the chance to use potions, purchase weapons, and face off against enemies.
The set includes eight LEGO minifigures, a buildable dice, rule book, and poster.
Why It’s Fun
The Heroica line will appeal most to kids who like story-based adventure games. Casual gamers who enjoy classic battles of good and evil with a little strategy will also find the line accessible and entertaining.
While Heroica games have specific battle-oriented gameplay and share a common goal, different players can adapt the game to their liking by adding imaginative elements to build out the storyline.
Who It’s For
LEGO Heroica Ilrion is for ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
