How do the the Advanced Quest (Master Quest) rules differ from the regular US version? And, for that matter, how do the US rules differ from the UK rules in the basic version?

Advanced Quest Edition utilizes UK rules. There are no new rules added for this edition, it simply adds a multi-part quest "The Dark Company". As for differences between US and UK, the list is way too long, see threads under HeroQuest ...

The main problem in attempting a US version/Advanced Quest mash-up is that monsters in the British version only have 1 BP. Thus Advanced Quest Doomguards only have 1 BP whereas an American (regular) Chaos Warrior already has 3 BP, and so the Doomguard is underlived in comparison (aside from specific Defense rules.)

This is just one example, but all Advanced Quest specific monsters would suffer from same. The Dark Warrior Mercenaries are also different than regular Heroquest Mercenaries in addition to also being British system based.

The American/British BP issue could easily be solved by house-ruling Advanced Quest monsters additional BP. The question would be how many? This may have already be done and tested by someone else, and it might even be available online, but I've never done a search.

The issue is exemplified by this comment by an American fan who probably did not realize the difference in edition: "Had weaker monsters than the US version but had one extra Quest that needed four boards!"

And certainly didn't bother reading the booklet which explicitly details how it works on one board...
