Legends of Andor is a cooperative adventure game in which players are a band of heroes working together to defend a fantasy realm from invading hordes.  In order to secure Andor's borders the heroes will embark on dangerous quest over the course of 5 unique scenarios.  But as the clever game system keeps monsters on the march toward the castle, players must balance their priorities carefully.  Will their heroes roam the land completing quests in the name of glory, or devote themselves to the defense of the realm?
