It’s been a long time since we first showed you the Heroquest 25th anniversary board, but we think that the effort we have all made was worthwhile. All of you may remember that we had a double-sided board: side A with the classic dungeon and side B with the outer ruins. In addition, as an optional extra, we have a double-sided folding board, that rises from breaking down the classic dungeon into tiles and also with an alternative version on the other side.
In many cases this second face of the modular board only has an alternative illustration, but the other ones are completely different and they directly affect the game development. Thus, for example, the central chamber of the board becomes a dangerous well with a narrow edge surrounding it, while some corridors are flooded, slowing-down our heroes.
For a wider range of options, we finally got three extra pieces with a total of six special rooms, which you’ll be able to use either to modify the main board or to combine with the modular to expand its limits in any way you prefer. But that’s not all, and here comes the surprise.
While we were finishing defining the boards, we tested various kinds of divisions between rooms, from simple lines to an absurd large number of walls. We were trying to find a style that in determined stages, would allow us to indicate what sections of the wall were demolished to combine the different rooms, but finally we found the solution in our field of expertise: the miniatures.
That´s why we can confirm you that Heroquest 25th anniversary box will include, with no extra cost from your behalf, enough additional scenography pieces of semi-ruined corners; markers indicating walls that you can climb over and that partially obstruct your line of vision without completely blocking it. We hope you like the idea and that you’ll find the boards agreeable to your expectations.
