Custom Heroes is an innovative but very accessible twist on traditional climbing card games. The game allows you to do something almost unheard of: you get to play with the makeup of the deck itself!

Using transparent cards that stack together, you can make a low card high, a high card low, turn a card wild, even make a card count as two cards! But beware, every hero card you customize goes back into the deck and someone else may use that hero against you on the next round.

Get rid of your cards first to score big and win.

For anyone who enjoys games like Daifugo, President, Gang of Four, The Great Dalmuti or Tichu, Custom Heroes will feel familiar and yet wonderfully new and different.

Listen in to discover more about the game and why we think it is award worthy.

Complete Show Notes continue after the break.
