Am I surprised? No.

Under Hanlon's Razor, I've long since assumed Gamezone to be completely incompetant when it comes to IP, promotion, PR, etc.

"Heroquest Classic" has been rejected to be a brand name in the US for five or six reasons. One of them is that the applying company is not the same like in the document. Such kind of failures you really shouldn't do.

The most important is that the product of GZ "Heroquest Classic" is regarded as Role Play Gaming Material, or at least targeting the same customer group like a RPG, and as such it would be in direct concurrence to the US Role play game "Heroquest".

In HeroQuest terms:

No, Gamezone, you can't move the Dwarf like that.

Why?

1. It's the EWP's turn, not yours.
2. It involves moving through a wall and over a bottomless chasm.
3. It involves moving 13 spaces, the dwarf only moves 2d6.
4. You rollec combat dice for movement.
5. You're playing the Elf, not the Dwarf.

For anyone that hasn't been keeping up, people that backed this game still have yet to receive a copy. Some folks have taken legal matters into getting their money back. It's a mess, unfortunately. It sucks that copyright laws exist, but that's capitalism, I suppose. But it's even worse if the company willfully and knowingly fooled backers into thinking they had the right to do this.

As someone that just wants to play the Heroquest board game without spending bookoo bucks on a copy on eBay, I hope this game somehow reaches shelves and people get to play it. Because I'm interested in it and I want to see people happy.

I didn't back because of this very reason. While I would like people that backed a project to get what they backed for.

If something's too good to be true, it probably is.

I don't recall if I ever replied to this topic or not so I voted and am now replying. I for one was super excited about the original crowdfunder that ended up being canceled. I then jumped on the next one that popped up. I'm still eagerly awaiting the game to be finalized and released. I really want to play it and like some of the changes they made to it. But, I am really upset over the lack of communication and feel there is something going on that they are not mentioning as it was supposed to be finished by now.

no one is going to see their stuff

Failed to meet the deadline.
Has not responded to inquiries.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.
