After an impressive crowdfunding project on Hasbro’s Haslab, HeroQuest is now available to order from game shops. The classic game received an update funded through Hasbro’s platform that resulted in over $3.7 million pledged. The Haslab crowdfunding campaign also featured two new expansions, “Kellar’s Keep” and “Return of the Witchlord”.

HeroQuest is a dungeon crawl board game where heroes work together to complete epic quests, find treasures and defeat the forces of evil. This semi-cooperative board game has one player taking on the role of Zargon, the Game Master, while 4 mythical heroes–Barbarian, Dwarf, Elf, and Wizard–team up in their quest for adventure in a maze of monsters and eerie dark dungeons. Players can immerse themselves in the fantasy with the stunning artwork, and 65+ detailed miniatures. The game comes with 14 quests, and has limitless replayability because players can also build their own quests and create their own stories. Gather friends together for an exciting night of tabletop gameplay in an epic battle of good and evil.

HeroQuest is getting a new physical release with updated miniatures through Hasbro‘s HasbroPulse HasLab crowdfunding platform and its Avalon Hill board game division. It’s currently available for those in the US and Canada (minus Quebec) and it’s unknown if it’s coming to other regions.

The updated Heroquest features updated miniatures and scenery though looks to be similar to the original release.

The game received numerous expansions as well.

The new edition has two tiers, “Heroic” at $99.99 plus shipping and “Mythic” which costs $149.99 plus shipping.

The Heroic Tier includes the core HeroQuest game system (featuring 71 highly detailed character and furniture miniatures) as well as 4 bonus hero miniatures and 1 exclusive miniature only available during the HasLab campaign.
