Avalon Hill has dropped a countdown clock for the return of HeroQuest.
The miniature roleplaying fantasy board game is beloved having been released in 1989 by Milton Bradley and Games Workshop. Designed by Stephen Baker, the game was for 2 to 5 players that had players creating their own dungeon to quest in using tiles, miniatures for furnishings, and figures. The game received numerous expansions as well.
It’s a popular game with original copies being sought after. Prices have been driven up into the hundreds of dollars.
It’s unknown if Avalon Hill will be working with Games Workshop on the new edition or what to even expect but we’ll have the news as it breaks on September 22.
Zoinks! The Mystery Inc. Gang has another thrilling puzzle to solve! Releasing today, Betrayal at Mystery Mansion, a new board game based on the critically-acclaimed Betrayal at House on the Hill, lets players explore the mysterious mansion as Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne, and Fred. Players discover clues, investigate spooky stories, and maybe even unmask a monster! Betrayal at Mystery Mansion is available in stores everywhere starting today, July 24, 2020.
Designed by the team behind Betrayal Legacy, Betrayal at Mystery Mansion is more exciting than a double triple-decker sardine and marshmallow fudge sandwich, including all new inside and outside tiles, Item, Event, and Clue cards, tokens, and 25 brand-new haunts based on classic Scooby-Doo episodes and movies. Once players find enough clues to learn what’s really going on, the haunt begins and one player switches sides to play the role of the Monster. Those meddling kids then try to stop them before they carry out their sinister plan – hopefully pulling off the mask to reveal it was Mr. Wickles the whole time!
Betrayal at Mystery Mansion is now available everywhere and retails for $35.

After much anticipation and excitement, the latest “legacy” game is here! Betrayal Legacy is out now and available everywhere! Based on the award-winning Betrayal at House on the Hill and designed by Rob Daviau (Pandemic Legacy, Risk Legacy, Seafall), Betrayal Legacy is a unique experience offering you the chance to create the iconic house’s story through decisions and actions taken in the game.
With its history shrouded by wild-eyed ravings and the scrawling of madmen, it was thought that no one would ever know the unholy origin of the house on the hill. Until now. The history you tell is one you create.
Beginning in 1666 and traveling through time to the year 2004, players take on the roles of several generations of families obsessed with the house whose actions in one game carry forward into future games. Every journey through the legacy campaign will be unique and unpredictable making each group’s experience different. Once the campaign is complete, you’ll be left with a fully re-playable, customized board game. Designed for 3-5 players ages 12+, Betrayal Legacy retails for $75.
Fighting a world war is hard enough without a zombie curse! Can you bring your side to victory while surviving the rising tide of zombies?
Avalon Hill today announced the launch of the newest board game in the Axis & Allies series – Axis & Allies & Zombies! The iconic World War II strategy game has been a cultural mainstay for decades, and this fun twist will introduce the game to a new audience, while providing existing fans with another variant– and zombie-specific R&D weapons like Chainsaw Tanks and Zombie Mind Control– to play.
It is 1941, and the world is at war. The Axis war machine is crushing everything in its path, while the Allies are rallying together to mount a heroic stand.
And then zombies show up.
As the commander of one of the five major powers, you are charged with planning a strategy to win the war. But each battle provides more fresh corpses for the flesh-eating hordes, and the problem is getting out of hand. With your human enemies on one side, and the ravenous undead on the other, it is time to ask yourself, “Do I invest in tanks or chainsaw tanks?”
Stand firm, commander. It’s tough choices like this that will determine victory or undeath.
Axis & Allies & Zombies is designed by Wizards of the Coasts’ award-winning designers and developers – Mike Mearls, Scott Van Essen, Ryan Miller, and Mons Johnson – and includes an introductory scenario to provide new players with an easy-to-set up prelude, as well as quick-start rules for more experienced players to jump right in. The game also includes an expansion for the Axis & Allies 1942 board game. Recommended for 2-5 players ages 12+, the game has a suggested retail of $40.
