    This guy is a legend.

    Why is Hero quest so great?

    I got it for Christmas one year when I was still in junior school.

    Easy enough to learn as a kid, but far more to it than “normal” board games I had played up until then such as Game of Life, Monopoly and what was that one where you rolled a skull down a tower?

    I’ve been playing board games, card games, RPG’s and minis games ever since playing Heroquest and really have to think “how different would my life have been had I not got this game for Christmas” Would I still have got into “the hobby”

     

    P.S @brennon should do a Burrow and Badgers video in the style of the Heroquest Guy :p

    Without any doubt I can say that Heroquest is classic game and original middle ground game between PnP RPGs and miniature games. Back in day I had so much fun playing Heroquest with my friends. Lot of things happened like my elf going trough wall to chamber were great hero’s grave was.

    It was a gateway drug for so many of us.

    Do you think this could ever be re-released? I mean, at best I think it is doubtful.

    For me, it was Space Crusade.  Gateway into miniatures gaming in general.

    These days, there are tons of good dungeon crawlers.  Off the top of my head- Zombicide, Super Dungeon, Shadows of Brimstone, Descent (app only), Imperial Assault, Sword and Sorcery, Gloomhaven, Journey, Stuffed Fables, Widower’s Wood, WQ: Silver Tower and Kingdom Death Monster (ok, that last one is only kind of/sort of DC).

    I’m not sure how many of those might have come into existence had there been no Heroquest, though.

    Had I not played Hero Quest at a friends house I would probably never have gotten its companion game Space Crusade myself. And without that I might not ever have ended up in this hobby. They both filled their roles as gateway games superbly.

    And I am still a bit sad I never got my own copy of Hero Quest.

    Always appreciate a chance to enjoy another cracking un-boxing.

    I wonder if they’ll ever bring this back as Fantasy property now that Assassinorum is a thing.
