Hello again, gamers!
The Avalon Hill team has been working hard behind the scenes on so many wonderful things this year, such as the exciting upcoming expansion for HeroQuest, Rise of the Dread Moon. This will be the first original Quest Pack for HeroQuest in THIRTY years! It also follows closely on the storyline first started in Mage of the Mirror – with the Elven kingdom in turmoil, Zargon will unleash his most treacherous machination yet!
We decided that such a momentous occasion was deserving of celebration, which is why we’re announcing that the day Rise of the Dread Moon is released - 15th July 2023 - will be the very first ever HeroQuest Day!
What is HeroQuest Day?
We’ve joined together with three wonderful partners and their gaming groups to bring you hours of dungeon-delving fun streamed via our partners’ accounts on YouTube.
First up, Ryan from Nights Around the table will begin the day with the classic quest The Rescue of Sir Ragnar from the core HeroQuest Game System. This quest is a fan favorite and is an excellent lead-in to the story of Rise of the Dread Moon –you’ll find out why by watching all the events!
Next, we’ll welcome Jamie and Jeff of Foster the Meeple who will take you through one of our favorite quests from Mage of the Mirror, The Elven Prospector, to help catch fans up to speed on the events of the expansion.
Next, Ashton and Daniel from Shelfside will follow up with an exciting original quest, Knight Fall, detailing an important event that launches into motion the events that will take place in Rise of the Dread Moon. This thrilling quest is packed with exciting twists and turns – you won’t want to miss it! Best of all, KnightFall will be available free to download at the conclusion of the stream.
Finally, Paula Deming will take on the first quest in the Rise of the Dread Moon quest book! Get your first glimpse of the expansion as our heroes start to uncover what deadly dungeons lie between them and understanding the significance of the Dread Moon.
But the day would not be complete without Zargon himself! The fiendish Dread Sorceror will be watching along from his secretive lair, live tweeting throughout the day. If you’re not already, make sure you’re following him at www.twitter.com/heroquest so that you don’t miss a single villainous aside.
And finally, don’t forget to pre-order YOUR copy of Rise of the Dread Moon (out 15th July) so that you can experience for yourself the thrilling story contained within. Pre-orders are available at the bottom of the page through Pulse, or at other retailers globally.
We hope to see you there - The Quest is Calling!
