Product Description

HeroQuest is Milton Bradley's approach to a Dungeons & Dragons-style adventure game. One player acts as game master, revealing the maze-like dungeon piecemeal as the players wander. Up to four other players take on a character (wizard, elf, dwarf, or barbarian) and venture forth into dungeons on fantasy quests. Miniature plastic characters and doll-house style furniture make this game very approachable. Expansions were also released for this system. The HeroQuest series consists of the main game and a number of expansions. This game was made in cooperation with Games Workshop who designed the miniatures and helped in many of the production details including background fluff and art in the rule book and scenario book.

I've owned this game for a long, long time. I haven't played it in years, but I really miss it. We used to play this every night for weeks on end a couple of decades ago. One the things that made this game stand out at the time and still does, is the very three dimensional nature of the dungeon. You don't just get little card pictures to put on the floor, you get book cases, tables, chairs, racks, doors, fireplaces, it looks great setup. You can even paint the plastic parts of the furniture pieces if you want to. The models themselves aren't the most detailed, but they come moulded in different colours so it's easy to find them when you're looking for one, Grey = Chaos, White = Undead, Green = Greenskins, Heroes = Red. You get a broad variety of models with the set, and they are paintable if you choose.

One criticism of Hero Quest is that you need a dungeon master to run the game, or at least you did last time I played it - I'm not sure if some editions came with solo play rules? I know they did for Advanced Hero Quest. I preferred this to Advanced Hero Quest actually, the quests were fun and well thought out and the combat was simple and fast flowing. One thing I didn't like was the rolling of dice for movement. I could argue it's maybe a representation of the warriors picking their way through debris and narrow tunnels and enjoying varying success, but it doesn't help the flow of play and often doesn't really make sense. I would actually suggest a house rule of deciding how many squares 'move' your warriors and the different monsters get and use those instead of rolling for movement.

I was given this game for christmas many many years ago now and still have it in the cupboard awaiting my own kids to play it with. It was the best xmas present that year and probably for a few years later. It was very colourful, well made, although some elements were a little 'bendable'. The board was great, the cards very well presented, no expense spared here. It was a complete success !!!

When i played with my brother and friends i was always the dungeon master as i was the most creative of our group. I was also given the mission creation pack where i made many new missions which took me hours, which i did not mind at all.

I look back now and only dream of those days when i'd set up the board ready for another adventure with my bro and mates. If only those days could come back....

A must purchase for any young inspring adventurer.

This is probably the greatest board game I have ever played, and I still have my copy which I bought for a bargain £3.00 at a car boot sale in 1992, still wrapped in its original cellophane. You could not imagine how excited I was, as I thought it was the steal of the century. For anyone who wants to buy this game...do it, you will never regret it. I am currently trying to find new players to set up a Heroquest club, as I really want to start playing Heroquest again!
