The HeroQuest Game Is Officially Back
I wrote about this being a possibility the other day, but is now official. Hasbro is bringing back their boardgame rpg HeroQuest, as a crowdfunded project at least: HeroQuest Game System.
First of all, I’m really happy about this. HeroQuest was/is an excellent game and I’m glad more people will be able to play it. It’s a nice start into D&D type adventures while still feeling like a board game and not all in one’s head. At least that’s how we felt about it back in the day.
I do wish it was coming back as a mass produced and sold in stores game rather than crowdfunded. Also the $99.99 price tag while not excessive is still a bit more than I’d like to spend on a game that I already own. It’s one of those things that would feel a bit indulgent buying for myself. But it would also be nice to have a copy of the game I could play without fear of messing up my old set.
And it’ll cost you an extra $50 to get the expansion sets. I guess my hope for this would be it becomes massively popular and Hasbro starts to churn out new HeroQuest content. That would be sweet.
