Hello again adventurers! What about your holidays? We could´t even remember the sunlight and we really needed a break. After a long time working so hard, we decided to close the workshop for Easter, for all the team to build up our batteries. It worked! and although this morning we needed a few gallons of coffee, we’re ready to start.
Firstly, there were a couple of corrections in the last update. Initially we pretended the doors to work the way we described, with two pieces fitting together (the frame and the door), but finally we decided to produce this set element separately. In other word, we will have an open door marker and a close door marker. So, when a hero stands opposite a close door and opens it, you replace an element for the other one and…. it’s done! Faster, durable and with fewer problem for you to paint it. This is how the game has now 18 open doors and 4 close doors. If you need more, shortly you will find 5 door packs to choose from.
The second correction is about the size of the box. The double-sided folded board dimensions are 57×78 cm (22.44 x 30.70 inches), so we believe that the Heroquest 25th anniversary box size will be around 58×40 cm (22.83 x 15.74 inches). We will tell you more about it as soon as we have the white prototype from the print and we check how it all fits together.
And after all this, what about showing you how de game looks like? To start, here is an example of the 25 heroes that will be available initially: 8 in the basic box, 15 from the adventurer pack and 2 bold teenagers.
Barbarian, Huntress, Dwarf and Female Dwarf
Elf, Female Elf, Mage and Wizard
Paladin, Bounty hunter, Mercenary and Tracker
Renegade, Knight, Veteran Barbarian and Honest Archer-raider
Wandering blacksmith, Condemned, Insane mage and Erradicator
Former tabern bouncer, Swordmaster, Monster hunter and Bold teenagers
Before finishing, we would like to thank your support and understanding. The delay in the project is testing the patience of everybody, including ourselves, but your supporting daily emails are really engaging and satisfactory for us all. We just wanted to thank you very much and promise you that, after this easter break, we are back full swing again and loaded with energy.
