Hasbro Resurrects HeroQuest Board Game After 30 Years, Coming 2021

Any self-respecting ’80s kid would remember the heyday of HeroQuest by Milton Bradley and Games Workshop. The Dungeons & Dragons-esque board game inspired by the likes of Conan the Barbarian, The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth will soon be making a return to the tabletop as a reboot by Hasbro under its Hasbro Pulse crowdfunding campaign.

For the uninitiated, HeroQuest is a cooperative dungeon-crawling board game where players take on the role of Heroes. They will then take on quests by exploring dungeons on the modular board by rolling a pair of six-sided dice, getting past doors (which have their own physical miniatures), slaying monsters, getting the treasure, and leveling up, rinse and repeat.

The crowdfunding campaign has a goal of US$1 million, with over US$780,000 pledged at the time of writing. The project has until 6 November 2020 at 11:59PM EST to reach its funding goal (though at this rate we imagine it’ll far surpass that goal by then). After which, a successful campaign could see a retail release as early as late 2021.
