HeroQuest was brought back to life using the Hasbro Pulse system for lucky backers and pledgers and now it is set for a full resurrection as a retail product. It has recently arrived on their webstore for pre-order with a release at the start of 2022.

As pointed out in our forums by @darthcheese, this marks the rebranding and changes to the previously funded Ludofilia game which never truly saw the light of day. That game has now been rebranded as TseuQuesT (interesting choice of name) and whilst it is still available from the Gamezone Miniatures webstore, it is still in somewhat of a state of flux.

Those who did back the original Ludofilla campaign have been given a choice. They can decide to instead pick up the Avalon Hill/Hasbro version of the game that you see here.

The now rebranded TseuQuesT is still planning to deliver at the end of the first quarter of 2022 but this Hasbro version is slated for shipping in early 2022 and has obviously garnered a lot of praise. The mechanics and style of the game remain the same albeit with a little bit of a glow up in terms of components and art. Plus, the miniatures look quite nice too.

So, if you are over here in Europe and you didn't manage to get your hands on HeroQuest during the initial crowdfunding period then you can now do so. It looks like it is going to be available to all folks over on this side of the pond if they missed out. I still have my classic version of HeroQuest so I'm going to stick with that I think!

Whilst the nostalgia is strong, I could see this also being a neat game to pick up for those who missed out the first time. Whilst it might mechanically be an old "veteran", it might give you just the right classic dungeon-crawling hit you've been after. Well, if you would prefer this over the likes of Gloomhaven, Jaws Of The Lion or perhaps the new Descent: Legends Of The Dark.

  • IMMERSIVE ADVENTURE GAME: The Avalon Hill HeroQuest board game is fantasy dungeon crawler in which players must work together to battle terrifying monsters and complete epic quests
  • MYTHICAL HEROES: The Realm is in need of champions to challenge the evil forces of the Dread sorcerer Zargon. Four heroes --Barbarian, Dwarf, Elf, and Wizard--have answered the call
  • STUNNING ARTWORK: The HeroQuest cards and booklets feature incredible artwork that helps takes players' imaginations into a fantastical world filled with hideous monsters, deadly traps, and more
  • 65+ DETAILED MINIATURES: This semi-cooperative board game includes highly detailed miniature figures on 25mm bases, and detailed furniture models for an immersive gaming experience
  • LIMITLESS REPLAYABILITY: This HeroQuest tabletop board game is for 2-5 players, ages 14 and up. The game comes with 14 quests, and players can also create their own stories and build their own quests

This certainly seems like a more surefire way to get your HeroQuest hit if you feel like you missed out on this moment in history. Hasbro clearly hit on something with this. It made Warren build his own version of the game board!

So, it will be interesting to see if they continue to look at expansions and such for retail that were available during the initial crowdfunding period.

Are you going to be pre-ordering this?
