I doubt that very much... If I get bored of HeroQuest and what to change it up a bit. I play modular HeroQuest as close to Warhammer Quest as i like, I do like those doors and floor tiles though.


I've played HeroQuest and Warhammer Quest, so I'd like to think I'm in a better position to make that determination. Warhammer Quest is, mechanically, like HeroQuest, but with more—more classes, more monsters, more equipment, a wider variety of traps, etc. And your heroes level up in WQ, which I like. The Wizard learns more spells over time.

But ultimately I do think HeroQuest (which is fun in its own right), would also be a lot of fun as a board-based Hack n'Slash rendition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (WFRP).

I'd very much like to try WFRP, but based on what I've read here, 1st Edition seems closest to something that could work with HQ in terms of story and cannon, and I can't find a pdf copy of it anywhere. I found the 2nd Edition, but I'd love 1st to read through and also to use as reference for future HQ quests.

However, you can play WQ with a Zargon-type player, in which case it has none of these problems, and I suspect would be a lot more interesting than HQ. I would love to play a curated campaign like that. . . .

Indeed, the role-playing version of WHQ offers a wide range of creative boardgaming. Unfortunately, I only got to scratch the surface of that aspect of the play experience with a bit of the first Roleplay Quest.

The Quest notes can get quite detailed, as the half-page format isn't used. That can be a big plus if you go for that kind of adventure. Also, the range of actions was a full page. Again, that's awesome if you don't mind the extra bother of remembering or referencing the list.

I still haven't fully proxied WHQ, as my friend and I only played up to Battle Lvl 5. My beef was with the loads of Wounds that needed tracking. That and the overabundance of treasure cards/notes to track. And the overpowered Wizard. And that damn roll-a-one phase. That could really drag the game. Despite the flaws, it was still had it's shining moments of pure fun.

All that said, HQ's sandbox rules allow for loads of variety as well. It a hobby that can extend in much the same scope (with work) as WHQ Roleplay . . . but in a more streamlined fasion. Playing WHQ has caused me to appreciate that economy in HQ.
