Thanks for indulging me, HispaZargon. That was quite interesting.

"Plebian Rules for noobs"

"Normal Rules for Normies"

"Deluxe Rules for l33+" ?

I'm cool with the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced (even better than Expert), personally.

Or something? Great work on this, and fun discussion!

Curious … We have this very nice translation of the Japanese rules … what's the best non-translated version we've got? I know we haven't got 300dpi print-ready stuff (unless I know incorrectly) of the Japanese game, but ideally I want the best versions of things I can get my hands on for the Japanese edition. If not printable quality, then the best screen quality.

Part of my intentions site cleanup. I want to fill in the missing content with the best we can get, even if it's not the best we could want.

Hi, the best one I could find was the one included in this post. Here you a copy of it:

HQ_Japanese_Rulebook_1991_[JAP]_[RAW-VERSION].pdf

This version is in two-page scanned format but I have also prepared another version with only one page per PDF's page if you prefer it. Here you have it too:

HQ_Japanese_Rulebook_1991_[JAP]_[READ-VERSION]_LR.pdf

Hi everyone,

Here you have the Version 1.2 of my translated Rules of Play of Hero Quest's Japanese Edition. This new version renames the trap types in order to match with the already translated text at the Japanese Edition Screen's back (see related post here). This version also includes other several minor corrections and updates:

Edited message: Previously attached file HQ_Japanese_Rulebook_in_English_v1.2_by_HispaZargon.pdf has an updated version in this post.

Hi again everybody,

After finishing the translation to English of the Japanese Edition's Quest Book and Character Sheets, in order to sync up the content of all the already translated documents, I have decided to include some minor changes in the last version of the translated Rules of Play so, here you have the Version 1.3 of my translated Rules of Play of Hero Quest's Japanese Edition:

HQ_Japanese_Rulebook_in_English_v1.3_by_HispaZargon_[READ-VERSION].pdf

This new version includes some minor text corrections and replaces the original Japanese pictures of Character Sheet and Quest Book of pages 1, 4 & 5 by new English examples as it was advanced in this post. This version also deletes the plural "s" of Spirit Valley name in the map, as also previously mentioned in other post.

Now I think the global result is better.
