As good as it always was

Loved playing this as a child, now 25 years later I play with my kids. Quality of product amazing. I hope all the expansions become available too, the mystic tour presale was amazing.

Awesome fun for adults and kids alike

Love playing this with my 2 boys - the quality of the product is fantastic and although not quite Warhammer quality of minis, they’re not far off. Everything about new Heroquest is as simple and fun as it was years ago.

A Superior Remake of a Classic Game

I've waited nearly three decades for HeroQuest to make a return, because it was always my favourite game, and this release from Avalon Hill is not only faithful to the original game, it surpasses it in almost every way. The first thing that any HeroQuest fan should know is that this game is HeroQuest as you've always known it, but it thankfully uses the far superior US ruleset that was previously unavailable to UK gamers (unless they used ebay). This means, among other things, that many monsters now have more than one body point, and that a character's mind points are no longer useless as they were in the old UK ruleset. Such changes make for a more challenging and satisfying gaming experience. However, this release also includes the equipment cards that only the mostly inferior UK version had back in the day. In other words, what we have here is a hybrid that makes use of the best elements of the UK and US releases of the original HeroQuest, so an old school fan like myself couldn't have asked for more. The quality of the miniatures and furniture pieces is amazing. In the original release of HeroQuest, the body of any given piece of furniture was made from cardboard which inevitably deteriorated over time. In this version, all of the furniture is solid plastic, so not only are they far more durable, they also present a range of interesting painting opportunities. Some may complain that Avalon Hill and Hasbro had to alter certain elements of the lore due to Games Workshop still holding the copyright for them ("Chaos" is now called "Dread" for example), but as far as I'm concerned the less that any product has to do with Games Workshop and its butchered Warhammer Fantasy setting the better. I never wanted HeroQuest to have a definitive setting anyway, because I'd rather leave that to my imagination. Besides, I happen to prefer many of the replacements; the fimir have been replaced by "abominations", and they're really cool looking fish monsters that I cannot wait to paint. Avalon Hill have also released a HeroQuest app that allows for solo play, since it assumes the role of Zargon, the dungeon master position that was named "Morcar" in the original release. I have used the app multiple times already and it works extremely well. So is there anything that I don't like about this new release? Well, I have a personal preference for the realistic art style of the original, a style that was embodied by Les Edward's classic box art, and I was initially very put off when I saw the more cartoony style in the previews of this new version. I suspect that Avalon Hill did not have the rights to use the classic artwork otherwise they would have, given how faithful they've been to the original game in every other way. However, while a piece of artwork can be protected, what you cannot protect is that piece of artwork's composition, and I suspect that that is why we ended up with a more cartoony version of Edward's masterpiece. Of course, this "complaint" is a very superficial one and does nothing to detract from my enjoyment of the game, and in fact the artwork, while of a different style, is excellent. The artwork on the game's cards is particularly impressive, being far bolder and therefore more immediately impactful than that on the cards within the original HeroQuest. It's also worth noting that the board of the game itself is slightly larger than it was previously (with the tiles now being one inch squared as opposed to the three quarters of an inch squared that they once were), and this has resulted in the miniatures and dungeon pieces being of a slightly larger scale than before. Because of this new scale, the HeroQuest logo that used to run along the bottom of the board now runs down its right hand side, which means that you can now line your card decks down it nice and neatly instead of having them lying on the table/floor beside the board. I grew up with HeroQuest and have as much love and nostalgia for its traditions as anyone, but this new version from Avalon Hill has thoroughly surpassed my expectations in every way. I absolutely love it, and given that HeroQuest maintained a hardcore fanbase even through thirty years of absolute silence, I foresee great things coming for this game in the future now that it has made such a triumphant return.

Great game!

Last year I participated in the pledge for the mythic edition and today I have finally received it. I already own the original edition but I wanted to have this renewed edition as a true fan of this game. Perfect for the winter cold days. 100% recommended.
