Hi Irene, Hero Kids is a pen and paper tablet role-playing game. You play it in person, at a table (I suppose), a bit like a board game. Here's a video showing an adventure in play:

I am planning to play this with two of my grandchildren this evening.
It could do with a couple of additions -
Encounter 1: a map of the road and a cut-out model for the runaway wagon.
Encounter 2: a map of the Wise-woman's hovel

And also, not just in this adventure but all Hero Kids adventures, I don't understand why you have cut-out models for the monsters, but none for the NPCs.

Ok, here's my story...
First off, I plead guilty of initially downloading a pirated copy. My first skin-reaction to mentions of this game was "someone's trying to cash in on parents who want their kids to play D&D."

Boy, was I wrong!

After reading it, I already started changing opinion; the game is simple, well-written, optimally structured to lead through increasing levels of complexity, and the combat system has that Heroquest (the boardgame) feeling to it, that hits my nostalgia glands, too!

I've tried the game quickly with my children, just a couple "walk up and hit" scenarios, and they were incredibly excited about it!

I thought the game could use something "extra", like equipment cards and stuff like that, and I started designing a few of my own, while I proceeded to come here to purchase the game.

I've purchased the full package, and to my surprise equipment cards had already been devised by you!...See more

I've tried to download this PDF several times tonight, but it keeps saying the file is corrupted. Can you please check the file?

Hi Kimble. DriveThru is having some problems since the server migration. So maybe try again in a couple of days once it settles down. If it doesn't work then, let me know.

Do i show the forest in one go, or tile by tile?
and I am wondering how to "force" the players to go to the den first?

One tile at a time, and let them explore the twists and turns of the forest. Each time they choose a direction, you can lay out the next tile.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
