i recently found some hidden treasure at a local thrift store:
a dutch 1989 copy of heroquest in near mint condition.
the box is a little beat up, but the figures are all still on their frames,
the cardboard is unpunched and the cards are still in the plastic wrapper.



i'm not quite sure if i want to sell this or not, but i am curious what i could ask for if do?

Not much. Soon the superior 25th anniverary edition will be out and no one will want the old version anymore then.

Definitely around $100. Possibly a bit more since it looks like it is in good shape and the figures are still on the spruce. Do a quick search on eBay to see what they have been going for. I've seen a few hit $300 in the last year or two, but they were still factory sealed.

Drool.

Can't say what it would be worth, but I'm willing to be that it will lead to a small bidding war on e-bay. Stuff still on sprues and in plastic always does.

Mind you, it being the Dutch version might limit things a little.

Dat is jammer .

However, Dutch is much the same as English. "Avonturen in een wereld vol magic". Run it thru a spellchecker, and you have English!

Maybe for some. Me, you could not pay me to take a version that wasn't in the right language. I passed up on a box (just the box, mind you) for Wizards of Morcar recently because it was the German version.

The board is folded over on its self the wrong way, that won't be good for it and not a good sign to potential buyers.

I recently sold a version still on spru for £80. The dice and card deck had been used though.

You could always just sell it for the minis, furniture and dice not to Germans. A set of new dice is worth £10. Otherwise... Check German ebay.

actually the board is supposed to fold that way.
it's due to being the older 1989 version. the one that came out in the 90s had it the other way around.
