Oldies playing Heroquest

Postby Okko » Friday September 28th, 2018 3:20am

I got this game back in 1989 when I was 30ish and spent many hours playing with my wife and work colleagues. I guess most on here had it as a child so wondering if I'm an oddity (does not bother me!) on here now being retired or if there are others rediscovering this as oldies!

I was about 10 when HQ came out. The UK advert got me hooked on it's world. Unfortunately I never got to play it much back then.

My dad is that old.
Well, according to my girlfriend's daughter, everyone over 17 is old to the same degree, so fraggle ageism!

Perfect! My daughter is 5 and she says the same. Well, no. She distinguishes between white hair and not white hair. Well, doesn't seem to go perfectly well now that I have no hair at all left :lol:

I was 23 when my Mum and Dad's neighbours 10 yr old son got it for Christmas 1990. They could't work it out and knew I played "games", so asked if I could explain it to them. I did, but when I looked it over, I thought wow, I'm going to get some of that HQ action, and I did!

I guess it was the first game I really got into and dispite the decades since did not throw it away. But not being part of a gaming community did not realise others viewed it in the same way, it's only because my grown up son developed a board gaming group that it's opened my eyes. I never realised how international it was. The attention to detail in a commercial game amazes me now, I have only just realised even the small rats have different poses!.

I do believe you ARE an oddity - but that just stands as a testament to the eternal appeal of HeroQuest.
