HeroQuest!



HeroQuest is a game I love. The Hasbro 2021 reprint has brought back all the happiness such a simple game can bring.

THE AXIANQUEST DECKS

AxianQuest is the name of the line of accessory decks I've designed for HeroQuest. Here's the list of those currently available, printed and ready, at DriveThruRPG:


The AxianQuest Heroic Skills deck, with 30 different skills cards any hero can learn: a simple way to introduce character progression and customization without bloating the game mechanics. Pay for training, learn a new skill, up to three. 

A full gallery of the deck can be seen here.


The AxianQuest Wondrous Artifacts deck, with 20 new legendary artifact cards.


The AxianQuest Furniture deck, which allows heroes to search each individual piece of scenery for unique outcomes and loot.


The AxianQuest Weapon Artifacts deck, with 20 new weapon artifact cards. 

The AxianQuest Dungeon Events deck, with 46 special events and encounters to make every dungeon adventure unique! 

The AxianQuest Armor Artifacts deck, with 20 new armor artifact cards. 

The AxianQuest Infinite Dungeon deck, a complete system to play always new quests and campaigns, with no Zargon player and no app needed, and supporting 1 to 5 heroes.

I've posted a Full Game Report of a solo game using the Infinite Dungeon deck and the Furniture deck.

Youtuber AmalgamAsh has reviewed the first four decks on his channel:



Amalgamash also checks the full Armor Artifacts deck and the Dungeon Events deck:


Daniel at The Dungeon Dive youtube channel shows and reviews the Infinite Dungeon deck and the others in this video which, believe it or not, is titled: "HeroQuest + AxianQuest Infinite Dungeons = the way it should be played (HeroQuest Solo)"

HEROQUEST ONLINE RESOURCES

These are my favorite online resources for HeroQuest:

r/Heroquest and r/HQHomebrew: the best Reddit communities for HeroQuest!

Complete random quest generator by Giovanni Borga. Output is in Italian, but google translate is your friend. Give it a shot!

HQ QuestBuilder by redditor Squidgem0nster: a complete quests and questbooks editor, with UI in English, French, Spanish, Italian, and German!

HeroQuest Cards Editor by actionfence (Paul Hamilton), downloadable or browser-based.

Jonathan Long's HeroQuestElf fan site: 25 years of HQ passion!

PROXIES, MINIATURES, TILES & BOARDS

Minis3d: My friend Pablo's online shop, and by far the awesomest 3d-printed proxies, alternate figures, and extra models to spice up your HeroQuest game. Their Heroes and Monsters sections are stellar, and the resistant, softish resin they use sets them apart from the rest of the 3d-printing crowd.

Loke Battlemats: My favorite producer of tiles and battlemat books. Their twin set of Dungeon Books of Battlemats is a must have for home brew quests!

Ian Schofield's Beautiful Dungeon Mats: Check these out because they are STUNNINGLY beautiful, and specifically designed for HeroQuest.

  1. Good afternoon Axian Spice, i have a question.

    1. Yep, we are working on the Italian version, and hope to have it out in a month.
      And the Spanish version is in the works too!

    2. Hello Axian Spice,

      I am so curious about the cards but I couldnt buy it until now because I need it in german language for my nephews. Then there will also be soon a german version? I read on another page (reddit maybe?) that this is not planned.

  2. Hi! Any chance you could provide pdf versions of the decks? Print and play is much more viable for a lot of us outside the US.

    1. Hello! I'm sorry to say we have no plans for a PDF release. BUT we are going to release a "catch up" bundle with all the decks, at a substantial discount, so as to at least partially compensate for the expensive shipping outside the US. It should be available by the end of September/early October, as soon as the seventh deck comes out!

    2. Shipping to Asia would still be outrageous and very likely to get lost in my case. I would appreciate an alternative option, even with degraded graphics.

    3. I'm really sorry. I live in Italy, and while it surely is not as bad as I'm sure it is with Asia, shipping my own decks (and print-proofs...) to me still is expansive and takes more than a month.

      Unfortunately, my partner and I have ruled out PDFs and PnP for a variety of reasons. I know this decision is a disappointment to you and other HQ fans, I am sorry, but we are not changing that.

      I hope you can figure some way to work around this, via friends or group purchases. I've heard people are doing that in Australia.

  3. Do you plan on releasing a second deck of furniture cards different than the ones we currently have? I love the cards you have created. It would be great to have even more options when setting up homebrew quests.

    1. No plans for a second Furniture deck for now, unless we get new furniture pieces in future expansions, but I have three or four new decks I'm working on!
      They won't be around before Spring 2024 though!

  4. I would like to buy the catch-up bundle, unfortunately I live in Italy, the bundle with shipping would cost me €102 no taxes included (i have to add 22% more) ... impossible

  5. Hi, where can I buy the full bundle of cards with ITALIAN translation? Ty
