First spotted at MACE in Charlotte back in 2018, Empyrean Hero is finally in-hand and here’s a look at it.
This small card game comes in a small, sturdy, attractive box. There is no shrink wrapping.

The interior is neatly arranged, with two compartments for the cards and a ribbon glued to the inner lid to hold the rules. The cards are not shrink wrapped, either.
The well-illustrated rules are printed on a large double-sided sheet. The print isn’t so small that it’s difficult to decipher, and I think the large sheet is easier to read and search than a small booklet.
The cards are colorfully illustrated, easy to read, and feel sturdy enough to withstand many plays and a lot of shuffling. Conversely, they’re not so sturdy that they make shuffling difficult.

We’ll have more from this game as we get a chance to organize some gaming to explore it.
Thanks for joining this month’s #UnboxingDay with the Armchair Dragoons and we hope you enjoyed our recon of our recent acquisitions.

The regiment also occasionally musters on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, and occasionally at a convention near you, once we’re allowed to hold them again.
