Published HeroQuest Contest - November 1989

Postby Geofonos » Thursday August 31st, 2017 2:51am

Greetings everyone.

Something I wasn't aware of - and I'm sure many fans around here didn't either.
In November 1989, the independent fantasy roleplaying magazine called "G. M." published a very interesting contest. The contestants had a set-up HeroQuest map and had to write down their very own descriptions and events for that. The winners would get a hold of a HeroQuest copy and some would get a HeroQuest poster. The judge for this contest was Stephen Baker himself !

That appears to be a new Quest map. Another unofficial official Quest?

The map is already half-played! Maybe one should develop a quest on this basis, by thinking of a story and filling the other half of the rooms.

Amazing!!!!!!!!!

Just when I don't think we'll be able to squeeze another drop of information out of HeroQuest, something like this just randomly drops!

Kind of clarifies "line of sight".

Cast a Spell:

You may cast a spell either on yourself or on any other visible figure.
Other figures in the same room are always visible.
