Failed to playtest

Postby Daedalus » Thursday September 28th, 2017 12:59am

Hero Quest was playtested by groups of boys extensively as part of its development. Not so with this expansion.

alyndavies wrote:We did have one minor drama on quest 6 or 7 where I spent the best part of 10 minutes looking everywhere for the spell book plastic scenery thing (Alter piece), and the damn thing was already on the bloody board, for some reason there are 2 of them on the quest which totally confused me. One in the center room and one in the top left quarter of the map.

alyndavies was referring to Quest 5, The Deadly Depths. Even this simple error got by the editor.

The "non-center room" one plays no role and could easily be left off. Perhaps MB assumed by this expansion the players would have an extra.

I don't know why they'd assume they'd have two of them, it's obviously a mistake. If there's no tomb in that quest then the other one was probably meant to be that. Against The Ogre Hoard is the worst offender, I can't remember the details but there's at least three errors worse or as bad as that.

I hate those tags. IvenBach should continue to use them because he has been working it funnily, but other than that it dismisses the recipient's intelligence.

While I generally agree with you about sarcasm tags and so choose not use them, I thought TMU's example was worth a chuckle. Too bad their not pink.

If you mean alyndavies' quote, it's in the fifth paragraph from this post at Saturday Night DUNGEON!.
