Should some graphic also be mentioned?

Yes, of course graphics mistakes too!

Good catch! Mmmm.. however I think the new art of chain mail is quite accurate with the rules of new bracers card which says bracers "may be combined with a helmet or shield", but not with chain mail... if you see the new chain mail art it also shows the wizard :-) wearing bracers in the arms, but the old european one did not:

This means the opposite I suggested here, I know, but that was another story, trying to find a justification for the new bracers cost of 350 gold coins which was fortunately wrong (correct one is 550 as you all know now).

I agree and I think the wording of the remake rulebook means the same as the original.

I think this should be clarified. It's no longer clearly stated that the orc around the far corner is blocked from line of sight. This may cause some confusion for new players who may be faced with a similar situation.


Yeah, good catch! I think it is a clear lack of information or errata, previous European and American versions of HeroQuest clearly explained by pictures that such orc is not in the line of sight of the Elf.

It is quite interesting to see that remake's rulebook figures have been remade. Line of sight figure is an example but diagonal attack through doors is another one, have you notice the additional wall corner next to the Wizard shown in the remake?

Of course this is not an errata, but in a first step this change confused me a little bit guessing something about this rule had changed too, but fortunately not. In my opinion putting there such corner does not provide any useful info.

More minor erratas:

- Game System Handaxe Equipment Card: In contrast with classic EU hadaxe card, the remake handaxe does not restrict the Wizard to use it. - Errata reported here by Lothar.

- The Crypt of Perpetual Darkness, page 6: Alone chest shown in tavern's secret room of the map has no dedicated description in page 7. - I think in this case the chest should be considered empty or maybe inside it Toni kept the Ring of Return.

- The Crypt of Perpetual Darkness, page 10: Alone chest shown in one upper room of the map has no dedicated description in page 11. - I think in this case the chest should be considered empty.

- The Crypt of Perpetual Darkness, page 14: Alone chest shown in one room of the map has no dedicated description in page 15. - I think in this case the chest should be considered empty.

- The Crypt of Perpetual Darkness, page 14: The map shows areas at fireplace and alchemist bech coloured in orange. This colour is only used in the rest of official maps to identify traps and in this case they are not. - I think they should have not been coloured to avoid confusion.

:o Wow , so the wizard can use a hand axe! Now he's got a 2 dice one time missile weapon! Probably a mistake, but still. :shock:
I looked at the card multiple times and didn't even realize it (had a similar problem when printing some of my own cards, forgot the wizard restriction text).

Now the Wizard's Staff does give him 2 attack dice AND diagonal striking, but he certainly can't throw it!

This is great guys, keep it up!

I agree with your assessment that the above-mentioned chests are empty. As such, searching Heroes should draw a Treasure Card, same as if a Cupboard other piece of furniture was there but not noted. I think this is the intent of the designer--more possible rewards in a tough Quests.

The rooms should not have notes added about the chests being empty. If they were changed to include such notes, then that would count as special treasure noted for each room (the chest is empty.) That means no Treasure Cards may be drawn there, since they are only drawn if there is no special treasure noted for that room.

By that logic the first hero to search gets nothing but the other three get to each draw a card. Does that make sense?

No, I take it as if you can ignore the chest. As if there were only some other uninteresting piece of furniture in the room. So, after the first person searches, “the furniture/chest reveals nothing of interest. Draw a treasure card for searching the room.”

Sorry I didn't make it clearer, Kurgan, but no. (You got my meaning, Nlinindoll.) As Joe's Quests are written, all four heroes get to draw Treasure Cards. If a Quest note of "the chest is empty" were added, no Heroes would draw Treasure Cards. At least, that's how I understand it.

Yes there should be a door there. The goblins responsible have been sacked.


Zargon is giving errata information not just lame jokes now? :o
