Ooh, could you elaborate? I enjoy the app but I'm always looking for new ways to play HQ solo.

There is a couple on Youtube, home base games, that came up with a pretty cool card system for solo-play. They haven't posted anything new for a couple months now (I hope they are ok). I am attempting to make a version of their system for myself and I might try and incorporate some of kurgan's ideas, too.

Oh ok, something randomized like the D&D Adventure System. That's cool. I will check them out. :)

Hey welcome back!

As for my way to play solo... it's the Shadow Tiles thread here.

I have also found another glitch.
I'm working through KK and on quest 4 (I think) the Dwarven forge, where you find the first part of the stone map.
I found it with my Wizard, but when I exited the quest, I got a quest failed message, and on the quest list it shows as not completed?
I thought let's try again with another character, so next time I searched with the Dwarf, found the map part, but again on exit it refuses to show as Quest complete!
Frustrating!

Good catch, I hope they patch it! Might want to post that on twitter...

There's a flier with a QR code for the app according to facebook images of the Frozen Horror. Looks like a good sign that it will be a retail release eventually added to the App.

Hi everybody.

Good news about the Companion App, it has been updated including the first two non-classic HQ quests: New Beginnings and Forsaken Tunnels of Xor-Xel. As far as I have checked, I can confirm that in case of second quest, the 'shadows' special rule works quite well in the App.

Notice those quests are also available in the App in different languages, even their quest maps where only officially released by Hasbro in English.

Some menu screenshots:

YAY!!! Ever since the online quests were announced, I'd been waiting to start KK hoping they would get on the app. This is awesome!

Thanks for sharing this! And me taking a break from the HeroQuestFans stream this weekend.... ah well I'll cover it next time. ;)

I don't have a smart phone, so getting this from our discord...

So reports are that the monsters attack the nearest hero now, instead of hero #1, etc.

Using Pass Through Rock causes instant death or becoming "stuck" when moving into solid rock (when you should be able to leave).

Not sure about the Rapier only being able to attack diagonals in this version.

More new artwork has been added.

As far as I know, yes, they try to attack the nearest hero but if they are at same distance could attack anyone, I guess they decide it randomly in that case.

No changes. Same problem exists as in previous versions of the app.

Not relevant for the app use because user can decide which monster is attacked. The user should know which weapon is the hero using and their limitations.

However there is a misprint in the App since it indicates the starting weapon of the Bard is a dagger which is wrong:

About the shadows rule in Forsaken Tunnels of Xor-Xel, it is introduced in the app but not perfectly. There are situations where the hero reveals parts of the map inside the range of the torch but without line of sight, so it is not correct. See the example below, the Barbarian goes outside the small room and he reveals part of upper and lower corridors of central room, without line of sight for that from he is located. Squares marked with red pointa would had never be revealed according to game rules:

In my opinion this is a clear bug.
