Steve Baloban, on his HeroQuest Archive, often refers to Holland, Sweden and Belgium versions too.
Here's an image of the swedish game system:

Good luck with the search!

Holland would be the Dutch version. That Swedish Edition appears pretty unique. I wonder what the odds are of finding a copy or someone who owns a copy of it are?

Basically there's still a whole lot more to get. I still have to work on some of the Spanish and Italian stuff I have.

Well here's another photo, showing GameSystem and first two expansions in what I believe it's swedish.
You may want to ask this guy?

It's really weird seeing HeroQuest without Les Edwards' cover art. I wonder why they changed it...

I'll be sure to advance you a copy of it when I get them done. Then you can play with your brothers, this time being the evil Sorcerer.

Sweet! That would be awesome! I could almost have 2 groups going with my brothers and some of his brothers who are always at my parents' house.

All the Spanish content I have is online, save for the Instruction Manual, Character Cards and Dark Company Quest. I'm still missing the Game Screen, all the Wizards of Morcar cards and everything from the Design Kit.

For those interested, I found an image of the Brazilian (Portuguese) Edition.

Image

As you can see from the image, all their miniatures were paper cut-outs that fit into door stands. You may also notice the North American style box for the Return of the Witch Lord. A gent from Brazil told me they received the North American version, which was publish by a company Milton Bradley licenced, Estrela Company. He offered to supply the material from the Brazilian set for the Website, but unfortunately, I've only heard from him the one time. I should send another reply as a reminder.
