The Return of Heroquest!



What if I told you that Gamezone Miniatures of Spain was releasing an Anniversary edition of the board game  Heroquest!  It's funny because I put out this poorly written bit about the petition to get Games Workshop to release a new edition about a year ago.  Well, that is now no longer needed.  Gamezone has been tweeting about it for a few days now and has put up an official website here.  It seems that they have the rights to produce this game "in Spain."  What that entails, I'm not certain, but I have seen it stated that it will not be distributed in the U.S. or Great Britain.  Still, you can buy it from Spain and pay the shipping if you so desire.  You can also support the upcoming crowdfunding campaign.  Gamezone has already assured some that the price will be similar to that of Fantasy Flight Games Descent. All of that said I'm pretty certain that the game won't take place in GW's "Old World" setting.   Here is a list of what Gamezone is saying the core box will consist of:
