Because he wanted to make normal size figures from the 4ups he has. He will understand.


I suppose I would have to ask him first if indeed he has the prototypes... have you heard from Taco that he does?

I think we are totally off topic now... some mod should split in two this post because this one was intentionally created to discuss about playtesting BQP and EQP.
The new topic could be "Hunting the Unreleased Quest Packs". Or maybe just modifiy this topic title.

Anyway, here is the answer.

I've already tried talking to SkyKnight about that but he doesn't appear to be replying anymore. He won't talk about it and told me to seek out TacoKing for questions.

What I was asking is pertaining to the letter to Don Kueker, the artist. I don't think he'd have a copy of the game, just photos. I started the letter but haven't finished.

ok, but he's Toco, not Taco... :lol:
Don Kueker shouln't have the game as I know. He only painted sketches and, probably, the artwork.

Hunting the Unreleased Quests

Postby wallydubbs » Saturday January 12th, 2019 7:53pm

That's the point I was making. I don't think Kueker would have a copy, yet I've been encouraged to write him. I'm practically done with the letter, but I was asking if anyone wanted to add anything.

Anyway, like I said, SkyKnight doesn't appear to be replying, but Richard Borg was kind enough to reply more then once. But he said the same thing "Nondisclosure Agreement."

You can try your luck with Skyknight on Boardgamegeek, maybe your words will have a better effect.

People have been trying since at least 2011.

I would maybe ask the question "Is there any small piece or part you can tell about it that is free of the non-disclosure?"

I edited my above post to include just a little food for thought in regards to Skynight.
Of course, it's a good idea to write a letter to Don Kueker.

So my letter reached Don Kueker and he called me earlier today, he may be able to send some sketches my way. But, as I suspected he doesn't have a copy of any quest pack, except the elf.

He was given a copy of the Elf Quest pack thanks to his contributions. He confirmed that he made some of the sketchwork designs for the molds, but as far as he knows, the Wizard quest pack was never complete. His words were that "the market bottomed up..." which supports there being an economic reason for lack of playtest. This contradicts my research, but I'd sooner take the word of someone that was there, as news can often be fabricated. I do intend to ask him more about this.

When Kueker described the project he said it was very compartmentalized (my words, not his). He didn't do the card drawings, as there were a lot of different people in charge of different things, and most of the people making contributions on one end were unaware of what was going on in other areas.

Kueker seemed to be delightful old man, 86 years old. He may have trouble hearing but he's very passionate about art.

We only talked for 15 minutes, but he welcomed me to call him tomorrow. Does anyone have any specific questions you think I should ask?
