My son's group has just three quests left in the base Game System. This is what the chest looks like with 12 stickers (that's one for each completed quest plus "The Maze")

Those chest sticker images belong in the Gallery > Other room. I imagine others would enjoy them as well.

Great idea for a storage unit WhiteBeard. I live in Baltimore area so I'll be stopping by one of their stores here locally and picking up one of these for sure. This is a great way to not damage by original HQ box and Expansion set boxes. HeroQuest rocks!

Oh great! I'm going to have such a dandy time convincing the wife to let me get one of these. You guys have to stop with this stuff!

I find it keeps everything nice and neat. Lots of loose cardboard boxes of minis and furniture become one not so ugly box.

My wife still kicked me out of painting in the "game room"... yeah we're very realistic about the spaces in our house. What would be the dining room is the "game room" unfortunately there is not so much gaming going on there.

Kicking me out, she thought I would paint less, which is true so far. But you guys should see my new Hobby room / lab! I cleared out everything that did not belong in such a room and built a new book case. I've got three distinct workstations. One for mini painting, another for DIY robotics, and my Raspberry Pi workstation. So I've been working on my soldering skills of late (with my 8 year old). Boning up on my Python programming. Before long I'll have my custom robot arm running with closed loop control. Then camera feedback. Then sound based location and voice recognition.

My goal:

Tony Stark: Dummy! Help here!

<DUM-E gears whine as the robot arm moves to point at his face>

Tony Stark: Not me! The cube. <motions to a glowing blue cube capable of 3D camera based motion tracking>

<DUM-E moves and grabs the cube and brings it to Stark's face>

Tony Stark: Not in my face! Put it down over there. There. There! There!!!! I swear to god if you bring that thing to me again I'm going to reformat your hard drive and install Windows 10!!

Do you guys have anything special you use to carry the gameboard? I also have the Dragon Strike gameboards that I intend to use for some upcoming quests. Any ideas?

This is what I want! I've been messing around with the Pi for the last few months. I really want to get into it more. And I want Arduino boards to mess around with too.
