Heroes of Might & Magic III: The Board Game

The cult-classic Heroes of Might & Magic III is coming to Kickstarter as an official board game

One of the most influential and beloved video game, Heroes of Might & Magic III, is finally coming to tabletop gaming.

The core game will feature three Towns to choose from: Inferno, Castle, and a yet to be announced faction. Each Town will feature two heroes to play as, along with creatures representing each Town.

The game will come with over 30 detailed miniatures, including famous heroes like, ‘Catherine Ironfist’ and  ‘Xeron’, as well as iconic creatures like Archangels, infamous Devils, and all-time classic Dragons.

The gameplay will combine world-exploring that uses hexagonal map tiles and the chess-like battle system representing the classic battlefields the series is known for.

You start a game knowing only what’s around your Town. What lies beyond is yet to be discovered. As you travel, you will add hexagonal tiles representing the world you travel in.

“In Poland, this game was one of the most iconic games we played. Basically, every kid in the late 90’s played the Heroes’ games, and we are crazy happy to turn our childhood love into a miniatures-based board game,” says Jarosław Ewertowski, CEO of Archon Studio.

“Working on this license is like being a teenager again, but this time, we are the authors, and tons of fans from all over the world are looking at us with great expectations regarding the quality,” continues Jaroslaw.

Every Town allows you to recruit different magical beings. It’s crucial to strategically combine them into an effective army. Watch out, as your opponents will be doing the same! Artwork for creatures will be provided by Iana Vengerova, a community-loved artist.

The Kickstarter campaign is scheduled for November 2022, with the basic pledge level allowing backers to play the core game and get all the stretch goals priced below 99 USD. For higher-tiered pledge levels, backers can expect additional expansions with the core game.

“Going the Kickstarter route is the best way to deliver exactly the game everybody wants with direct involvement from the community,” says Michal Hartlinski, Archon’s Project Manager.

“Going a step further is to deliver at least 2 more Towns in the expansions and a third Town as part of the stretch goals. Which Town is it going to be? It’ll be up to the fans to decide,” adds Michal.

“Although 33 years old, Heroes of Might & Magic III is still the most played game in the Might & Magic series, with a very passionate and dedicated community.   We are confident that the Heroes III legacy is in very good hands with Archon Studio, not only are they one of the top specialists of miniature board games in the world, but more importantly they are authentic fans of the original game.I can’t wait to see the world of Erathia, its iconic heroes,  fantastic creatures and strategic battles come to life with superbly detailed 3D miniatures!” says Eric Damian-Vernet, Brand Director and Might & Magic IP team lead at Ubisoft .

Archon’s Game designers are looking forward to working with the community to bring the most faithful board game possible, starting by collaborating with Iana Vengerova, a community fan-favorite artist.

The best way to get involved and get previews of development is to subscribe to a newsletter on the homm3boardgame.com website.

For the first time, a summoned Dragon will emerge in front of you! The game features highly detailed, tabletop-scaled models representing units from the game!

      Will be there valid chains of heroes and “The more speedy your army, the more speedy is your hero”?

        I’m afraid not. That would be very difficult to implement into a board game.
