HeroQuest is a role-playing game written by Robin D. Laws first . It is an unavoidable fact that all roleplaying games favor certain player skill sets.

It has its roots in Greg Stafford's fantasy world of Glorantha, but was designed as a generic system, suitable for, but not tied to any particular genre. Where some games reward memorization, an instinct for math, and the willingness to comb through multiple rulebooks for the most useful super powers, HeroQuest tips the scales for creative improvisation, verbal acuity, and a familiarity with the techniques and stereotypes of popular fiction.

I really think this is a great game and ties into the Glorantha setting very well. Really rethinks the way rpgs should be played. I've enjoyed running this game and seeing all the interesting things my pcs come up with. One complaint about the system is that some house rules will be required for this version. Players can abuse the system and start bean counting for every little augment bonus. This isn't hard to fix and was fixed in the 2nd edition. Just set a limit and problem solved. It's also more high fantasy then what I like. This isn't a problem with the system or the game it's just my personal genre preference. Some people like really high fantasy and magic but I find games can get too wacky and wonky in the long run. But I can still enjoy this game and what it brings to the table. The cover art is bleh but the inside art is far better.

The system is where it really shines. If you're interested in this game I recommend getting the 2nd edition but if you can find this version used for cheap, like I did, pick it up.

A great system for a great game world. Leave d20 behind and try something new, you won't regret it.

Systems affect the world you run in very real ways. Heroquest introduces you to a style of game aimed at acting out and experiencing satisfying stories, not endless hacking through dungeons for meaningless treasure.

Discover what it takes to be a hero in a system that allows you to play anything from a lone wolf to a general commanding thousands of troops!

This game is *almost* perfect. Others have covered the system and the setting. This system is a tease of what roleplaying games should be - efficient, narrative, fun, versatile, and filled with flavour. THAT said, the game needs MORE examples and more options for varying degrees of abstraction. On some levels, the game is TOO abstract. That is one of its selling points, but it sometimes can be a REAL trip-up. I ran this for a year - the players liked it, but didn't *love* it. In the end, the abstraction left them wanting.

I think that with more options and examples, you could vary the level of abstraction and please all camps.
