It's quite interesting but I don't care too much about these kind of documents. I am only interested in game components.

Compilation of Leaflets, Advertisements and Other Documents.

Postby HispaZargon » Tuesday August 10th, 2021 3:56pm

Hi everybody,

I would like to open this new post list in order to have one place where we could make a some kind of database of all the official Hero Quest flyers, leaflets, advertisements, catalogues, magazine cuts, posters and any other documents related with Hero Quest, Space Crusade or Battlemasters boardgames which are not part of the rules or game-itself components. Of course, the idea is inform about them here when posible if they are not available yet.

I don't know if this subject has been already treated in the Inn, but I have not found too much related to it, excepting some old posts lists which I think were not placed in the correct room or their content does not cover what I am trying to cover here. Anyway, of course if I am wrong, please correct me but, let's go...

I will list below all those kind of documents and I will try to have this list updated with any future new findings shared by the Community on this thread, which will be labeled in the list as NEW :

The idea I have is using the future messages of this forum to share, describe and discuss about any other documents that are not included in the next list. I am sure that new documents will appear if we participate, of course I will start doing it in next messages. I guess that most of this kind of documents does not give any information that we already know but maybe some of them could include interesting details. Who knows what surprises could be there...

Collaboration with new addings is welcome! :-)

Hi, here you have my first addition, a UK leaflet which includes information about both three board games Hero Quest, Space Crusade and Battle Masters, similar to the already listed French one:

Here you have another one, a 2 page leaflet (or maybe a small poster) in Spanish only about Battle Masters, the back of the poster pages are in blank.

This leaflet was given by free in hobby shops at the time the game was released, and maybe it was also included in other MB boargame boxes as advertisement.

Another one... This is an avertisement cut about the UK Advanced Quest Edition of Hero Quest. It was included as one of the pages of an unknown computers magazine.

The game box and components shown in the picture of this advertisement clearly seem to be a demo or prototype of the final version of the Advanced Quest Edition. I have observed at least the following interesting differences between both versions:

- Front and sides of the box show a Fimir painted miniature instead of a Dark Warrior one.

- Dark Warriors miniatures plastic colour is grey instead of red... grey also is the colour of those miniatures in the Barbarian Quest Pack, so could it suggest that UK Advanced Quest version was released after the mentioned US expansion during 1992?

Additionally, I noticed that this advertisement is quite similar to one of the pages/zones of the "missing" wall chart shown in this post.

- Hero Quest Advanced Quest Edition UK 199x Advertisement, 1 page (English)

And here, a three-page advertisement about Battle Masters. This advertisement pages were included in some 90's Marvel comic series such as the following issues:

- 1992 Marvel Cage Comic Series Volume 1 issue 9.
- 1993 Marvel X-Men 2099 Comic Series issue 3.


It is quite interesting the long text written there about the game :-)

Hi again, the Brazilian edition of Hero Quest seems to have had also a 1 page leaflet presenting its expansions.

The blogger Ana Caldotto uploaded some nice pictures in this entry about the Brazilian game where you can check the leaflet. It is next to another page with the basic game's presentation. Both pages where included in the 1995's Brinquedos Estrela catalogue but the Hasbro licence appears to be of 1994, as she indicates there.

Hi, again a new three-page advertisement about Hero Quest's North American Edition. This advertisement pages were included in some 90's Marvel comic series such as 1992's Marvel Ravage 2099 Comic Series issue 1.

This Hero Quest advertisement is similar to the Battle Masters one already posted here.

- Hero Quest 1992 Advertisement in Marvel comic series, 3 pages (English)
HQ_Advertisement_Marvel_Comic_1992_[ENG]_LR.pdf

Edit: I cannot confirm it, but exist people in social media who say that these three advertisement pages were also included in Marvel comic Uncanny X-men Vol.I #295, published on December 1992.
