Herein brave heroes and vile fiends shall find tomes and grimoires of lore and wisdom.

There are three parts to Advanced HeroQuest: the miniatures; the rules; & the game boards/counters.


If you want miniatures, they’re not really something you can download. The game’s original creator, Games Workshop, still sell a nice selection of Warhammer Fantasy Battle miniatures suitable for AHQ. Failing that, a number of other suppliers also sell suitable miniatures.


The rules, are what this project is all about! We have re-written the rules for clarity, tweaked a few of them for balance and/or to make the game flow better, and expanded them to make a fully rounded-out system.

For ease of reference, we have divided the rules into a number of volumes. You could combine these into a single volume, but we find that by separating them, it is much easier to access the needed rules.

The introduction explains what everything is by way of game material, including detailed information on the books.

The rule book contains all the core rules that will be referenced by the other booklets. It will teach you the game.

The various appendices contain specific information for one sub-part of the game. If, for example you find treasure, then Appendix IV – Treasure will be where you look to see what treasure you find, and what it does.

We have the rule books made (or being made) in four formats. The content is the same, it’s just the presentation that’s different. Not everything is available in all formats yet, it will appear over time. Keep an eye on the main blog!

There are a LOT of books. These are plain text with minimal (greyscale) illustrations, excellent for self printing.

With a few splashes of colour and quite a bit of art, these are suitable for those with access to a cheap colour printer.

Full colour, illustrated volumes, suitable for professional print & bind.

Just the text, suitable for editing for projects inspired by this one, or for translations. If you are going to translate, please let us know, so we can link to you!


The cool chaps over at STC-Zero have decided to host printable board sections, designed with walls and without the jigsaw joins. You can then print & play to your heart's content once their uploads are complete.
