I'm wondering if any kindly "graphic savvy" HQ fans would consider making some original art that could be used in conjunction with something like Game Crafter to create new dice for HeroQuest. By that I mean, simple, clipart style images of a skull, a white shield and a black shield.

Seems to me if someone did this, and the art was original and not directly copied from the original game, that we would all have the ability to have new dice made for ourselves using a service like Game Crafter.

I suppose I could hunt down some legal-friendly clip art online and make my own on Game Crafter, but it occurred to me that it might be really easy for someone else to do this and make it available to the community here. I'm betting that person would make a LOT of HQ fans happy!

Any thoughts?

I think the distribution of skulls and shields is different for each color.

I'm having trouble reading the German. I'm also not up on my currency conversion, but I'm thinking that looks pretty pricey for a US customer like me.

Oops! My mistake. Didn't notice it the first time because the file name is kinda funky-random. I suppose with this I could bypass Game Crafter and buy some indented dice on Amazon to do the work myself. Think I might still look into price comparisons though. The best price for indented dice on Amazon right now looks like $0.95 each! Makes me tempted to try non-indented dice, but it seems to me the stickers would come off much more easily if I go that route.

I'm using Heroscape dice as extra Heroquest dice. The blank side equals a black shield.

They are. I show their distribution here:


They are VERY nice though, a bit bigger than the originals and very high quality. They work out only slightly pricer than equivalent normal D6's.

Those are really cool. Why are the distributions different? Didn't the original HQ just come with the white dice, or did some expansions offer these others?

The different distributions are for houserules/homebrew content.
