History Heroes Card Games

History Heroes’ award-winning, pocket sized family card games deliver 1000 years of history in each small box and detail 40 of the greatest characters in each theme.

The aim of the games is simple: win a game by winning the cards and win the cards by learning and knowing the facts. This film, shot at the recent London Toy Fair (video to be embedded) should give you a good idea of how to play a History Heroes game.

There are now 11 History Heroes’ games: Children, Explorers, Inventors, Kings & Queens, London, Scientists, Space, Sports Heroes , Women,  World War I and World War II. 4 of the games: SPACE, LONDON, SCIENTISTS and INVENTORS have been officially endorsed by the Science Museum, London.

The games have won several awards, beginning In 2014, when the first four games were launched.  A month after the games went on sale, they won Junior Magazine’s 2014 Best Design Award. You can read more about what Junior magazine’s judges thought of the game here:

Playing History Heroes: CHILDREN card game

Each of our family card games comprises 40 Heroes with a beautiful image, 6 facts and a joker fact about each character.  The facts range in difficulty from green, easiest, to red, most difficult so adults and children can play together and learn more about these amazing people too.  You can make the game a gentle voyage of discovery for all or a viciously competitive quiz game by choosing different levels of facts from the cards. You can also make the game a level playing field by making it easier for some and harder for others. The games are the perfect way of having a bit of fun together and all learning along the way: play on a rainy day, at the beach, in the car or while waiting for your pizza in the restaurant. 

Wherever you play, a History Heroes game is a cracking family card game for children and their adults from 8 to 108!
