I always wanted this game as a kid and Santa never delivered the goods. I'd forgotten about it until the other day when one came up locally so I snapped it up but unfortunately is missing the dice, quest book and 1 treasure chest.

I've been looking on ebay but not found any yet for the right price. Does anyone here have extras they could help me out with?

Thanks! Cant wait to get a game going!

P.S I am in USA but can also get mail in UK.

The quest book is on the Hasbro website in pdf form.

You can make your own dice with labels on regular dice, or you can buy new sets online. They aren't that hard to find IIRC.

yeoldeinn.com is the number one place to go for Heroquest fans.

I know what you mean. In the case of HQ, however, it's a little trickier to get affordable original pieces for some stuff. And in the case of the dice specifically, they were made of wood with painted faces, so they have not always held up so well.

There are a few options including some reproduced versions out there, and the easy short term solution is to take the original distribution of symbols on the dice and replace with standard d6 rolls.

1-3 = Skull
4-5 = White Shield
6 = Black Shield.

It is not a new edition! It has the same name but different rules and components.

Depending on the set. HeroScape dice can be used, or modified to work as well. From the same designer.

Someone is getting authentic-looking wooden HQ dice produced, should be available in the next month or so.

Hope the purist has a sizable bank account!

Anyway, for dice, the Magic: The Arena boardgame has dice suitable for HeroQuest and HeroScape. Prices have dropped, with some sales for $5 or so. Reaper Bones and WizKids prepainted and unpainted miniatures has a treasure chest miniature, as does Mantic Dungeon Saga's Furniture set.

I have the dice and the treasure chest.

I might have the booklet...I don't know.

I have 6 dice. I think they are the right ones, I have all of my dice together. These are wooden with lion shields, skulls and bug looking things.

EDIT: I also have the two red dice with pips
