After I noticed that there was a plan to re-release hero's quest, I dug out my box. Of course Like most people my mini's were used for D&D eventually, but erything still remains. I had the forethought to ziplock bag all of the parts :) woot. I'm re-reading the rules this morning, may give this a go in the next few weeks. I also have dragonstrike & dragons quest games, that had nice boards that could also be used for herosquest, which could be neat!
I can`t believe the amount of time we spent playing that game. (herosquest) I think our natural progression was the following.
Fighting Fantasy Books
Advanced Fighting Fantasy
And then finally AD&D
Of course we played a bit of Dragonstrike (which as everyone knows was horrid!) but had some great mini`s. And Dragonsquest, which was basic d&d in a box with some nice metal mini`s which I still have! thankfully. Although I painted some of these horribly.
I think I may just pull out Herosquest and have a go, could be lots of fun!
