Here's a brief introduction into the world of HeroClix:
What is it?
HeroClix is a tabletop game utilizing teams of figures that represent characters from comics, video games, and more. Each figure has a dial at the bottom, which is used to track the hit points. The dial also shows new powers and abilities as players unlock them.
How to play...
Once again, I'm doing a primer on something I've never tried myself. So... YouTube to the rescue! Here's some tutorial videos on playing HeroClix.
Where to play...
HeroClix, while no where near as popular as Magic: The Gathering, still has a very loyal fanbase around Orlando. You will often find weekly listings here on GGOrlando in our Events Calendar. But visit your local comic or gaming shop and see if they run game nights or tournaments. I've been to Pop City Comics in College Park on a HeroClix night (Thursdays) and saw a few players training "n00bs" on the basics of the game.
So go out there, have fun, AND DEAR GOD DON'T LET YOUR KIDS EAT THEM!
Special Note: Major thanks to whoever Glass Cabinet Films is on YouTube. I just searched for some instructional videos for HeroClix on YouTube and coincidentally enough, found these which were posted by a student at UCF. Keepin' it local!
