Greetings fellow adventurers!
HeroQuest is one of my favorite childhood games next to Clue.
Back in the summer of 1990, my old friend got me into fantasy gaming and books. We each picked up HQ, KK, RotWL and played it throughout the summer. We had a group of 6 players routinely. Through out the school year I developed Quests, which became my favorite part of HQ. I eventually, yet horribly, painted all the minatures. At some point as a teenager, the group got smaller, and the dust collected on HQ. One of my other friends had become addicted to minatures and asked for my HQ collection (game and all) and gave it to him as it at least gave it new life.
When I was 20, I began to miss the days of old. Hunted on eBay and picked up the main system. It was only then I discovered through various websites there were different verisons of the game as I noticed the differences: "Hey, there is a new quest called The Maze!". I ended up with the European version. lol. Since then, I held on to it playing occasionally with various people.
Now I have two main systems (USA and European) but none of the expansions, and a handful of non-HQ miniatures to go with it.
Lastly a very special thanks to goes out to all of you
for helping keeping this game alive! You have all helped in some shape or form! Now I intend to help return the favor.
