I literally miss my games of heroquest, played it a lot when a was really young!

Now I'm getting older and my childs are growing up, maybe I can start getting a couple of games with minis, heroes, monsters and dungeons... but which ones?

I've started making a list. Some already ordered some under investigation. Please comment or suggest other titles I've missed!

While I was ordering the original set the new KS project started... I'm a backer at the moment and I think to get this one too.

I never played the original but this should come with a lot of revised rules and gamemode (and revised deck also for previous products).

Sauron was not of mortal flesh, he could never again appear fair to the eyes of Men, yet his spirit arose & returned to Mordor. There he dwelt, dark & silent, until he wrought a new guise, an image of malice & hatred made visible; the Eye of Sauron.

One moment only it stared out as from some great window immeasurably high there stabbed a flame of red, the flicker of a piercing Eye. The Eye was not turned on them, it gazed north but Frodo at that dreadful glimpse fell as one stricken mortally.

I don't have this one (yet) but the first Dungeon Twister. They don't have miniatures (they're printed cardboard) so I posted the "expasion" Prison. They have real miniatures. For the first DT you can buy mini's but they're kinda hard to find & expensive.

From the discription: The introductory level is simple enough for an eight-year-old to learn.
So you can start playing next year with 1 of your kids.

OK, also here no minis. But it's fantasy, cool new art and physical interaction that seems to be kids friendly and fun.

Only problem is that the KS project is HUGE and getting all is going to cost.

A bit Dungeon Twister a bit deckbuilding and a bit skirmish... plus you can use this as expansions for Ravenloft and the other full D&D boardgames.

I have played this one since my sons were 6 and 8. Other than Summoner Wars, this is the game we have played the most - and SW takes 30 - 45 mins, while this game takes 1.5 - 2 hours! We are pretty experienced now, times might be double that to begin with. It is excellent with 2 people and very good with 3 (but don't recommend playing with more than that, but shouldn't be a problem with your group).

This is not a dungeon crawl, it is overland adventure. I actually prefer overland, but ymmv. It is definitely fantasy and miniatures.

The fantasy world is proprietary, and seeing the same heroes or monsters or even images has been a good way to pique their interest and introduce them to other games and game mechanisms, e.g., Rune Age, Rune Wars, and maybe eventually Descent.
