    HeroQuest Noob

    Post  CreatorsPixels on November 14th 2011, 4:12 pm

    Sorry I know its a stupid question but I'm missing something. I'm trying to play HeroQuest with my kids (7 and 9), but I fear I'm doing it wrong. First when you are Zargon, when can you do magic? It says refer to the quest book but I don't see which chars can do magic/spells. Second, do the heros every gain body points (aside from purchases) like for completing a quest or anything? Do they "level up" like some games? It just feels like I have to play it too easy on them or they just constantly die. Thanks for the help!

    Not a stupid question. Those rules can be a bit vague sometimes.

    Going mainly from memory here. Zargon can only use spells when a specific quest's notes say that a monster can use a specific spell, and then only once, and only when Zargon gives that monster a turn. Usually these are "boss" monsyers with names. The Witch Lord at the end knows some spells and a couple other "bosses" too.

    No leveling up, unless you use some of the advanced rules created by folks online. Hero improvement is based entirely on equipment.

    A fantastic site with more Heroquest resources than you'll ever have time to use is-
    http://www.yeoldeinn.com/

    Eventually, me and a buddy used the rules for "training" to add body points and modify other stats.

    I hope that's helpful!
