Now this is the time of the year when we start thinking about what to recommend you get your pet nerd, big or small, for Christmas. And whilst we’re not quite there yet, I just want to flag up the unadulterated retro geeky glory that is Heroquest (RRP £99.99), which releases 15th January.
This reissue of the classic 80s Dungeon Crawler boardgame is sure to set pulses racing, and not just with nostalgia – it still stands up as a great example of the genre, and whilst some aspects may feel dated to the more interactive or narrative elements of the likes of Gloomhaven, Descent or Shadows of Brimstone, it remains an absolute treat for the whole family.
Available now for pre-order from Hasbro Pules (and of course your FLGS), check out the blurb below!

The game comes with 14 quests and has limitless replayability because players can also build their own quests and create their own stories.
