This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we take a look at HeroQuest, the Milton Bradley/Games Workshop board game that proved to be one of the prime gateways in to tabletop RPGs for throngs of kids in the early 90s. In no small part because of the gorgeous miniatures. And the furniture. We kid you not.

So as to GW being super litigious, they got screwed over by Blizzard way back, Blizzard wanted to make a game based on warhammer, gw decided against it, Blizzard made warcraft, which is ungodly similar, then they did it again with starcraft, at this point gw decided that things had to change and since then they’ve been all about the lawsuits. I find it a bit silly considering a big part of the original warhammer imagery and iconography is lifted straight from Michael Moorcock.
I did not know this! Super interesting, thank you!
Not sure if you guys have talked about this in more recent podcasts since I’m still catching up – but there is a new reissue of HeroQuest from Hasbro and Avalon Hill with updated miniatures. Love the podcast! Keep it up.
