Why It's On The List
  • A dexterity game that more about physics than perfect dexterity... and more about the fun of building (and accidentally destroying) a huge house of cards than about tricking your opponent into making a bad move. And, yes, it's a kids game - but it's been successful with pretty much every person I've taught it to.
Tips & Tricks:
    • Not getting "cute" with your early builds will lead to a more stable base and a MUCH taller building.
    • The game is random enough (you roll both to see how far your hero climbs AND to win battles against other heroes) that you should not take it seriously.
    • The only person worth setting up for a fall is the player who is currently highest up on the tower - if they lose, everyone else wins.
    • This is part of the very successful Rhino Hero family of games from HABA... the original Rhino Hero is both highly portable and a lot of fun to play. I haven't played the other games.
    • Rhino Hero Super Battle is currently ranked #2 on BGG list of Children's Games.
