Play (Enhanced) Advanced Heroquest for CHEAP!

Really all you need to play (Enhanced) Advanced Heroquest is dice, miniatures, the rules, some dungeon floor tiles, and imagination. Anything else is literally optional...

A lot of you likely have dice and miniatures abundant already, and on the DOWNLOADS page of this blog you can get some rules to play; then here you can get suitable dungeon tiles for under $5! Check out the Inked Adventures: Modular Dungeon Cut-Up Sections Basic Pack (see below for more options).

Don't forget you can download some dungeon doors for free as well:

If you don't have appropriate miniatures and you are looking for cheap fantasy figures be sure to check out Reaper Bones! All of these guys are under $3 each!!




There is so much great free (or inexpensive) stuff out there for dungeon crawlers it can make your head spin... here are some of my other favorites:

...and this great French site: http://free-dungeon-tiles-to-print.blogspot.com/
And of course you could spend days searching through DriveThruRPG.

While I'm at it, here are some paper miniatures for Heroquest: http://boardgamegeek.com/file/download/8l0sz90eib/hq_paper_minis_col062812.pdf

In conclusion, if you are willing to do a little digging and a little printing/cutting you can play this great old gem for very cheap (or even free).

  3. You know what would be freaking amazing? If somebody (you, Gunz?) made a collection of links for replacement minis from Reaper or from any other miniature makers. A pack that we could buy straight away from their website.
