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.

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.
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.Read more ›
