If you've ever played Dungeon and Dragons think of that in a board game version. My friend introduced it to me several years ago and I couldn't wait until I could get my hands on this one. Simple to learn and plenty of variations from hundreds of other gamers that can make it anywhere from the simple form that it starts with to the complicated. The only problem is that is hard to find basically you have to luck out and find it yard sale or thrift store which is highly unlikely or you have to fork out the dough and buy it on Ebay. It is long out of print and doesn't look like it will ever come back into print.

One of My Favorite Games Ever
January 09, 2004

I have very fond memories of playing this when I was younger and recently snatched up a mint-condition copy to renew the fire. I hate the fantasy genre, but Hero Quest is so 'fantasy lite' as to be appealing. It fits a perfect niche between complexity and simplicity that is so important for a good game with mass appeal to have. I just wish this would be produced again. Hopefully someone out their is listening! Until then, enjoy it if you are one of the lucky ones to have it, and try to find it if you don't have it. (P.S. If you look around on the Internet, there is a ton of expansion material for this game to keep it fresh.)

Zargon is not supposed to win.
October 21, 2002

The point of being Zargon is to make it fun. Zargon is not SUPPOSED to win. (You do want to try, though, because easy gets boring. Try making all the grey creatures in the first quest spell casters and all can use any Chaos spell.)

The fun is creating difficult (but not impossible) quests and using your imagination (and some plastic props) to bring it to life. There are plenty of additions you can download to make it more interesting if you want.
