HeroQuest, or otherwise known as Hero Quest was a game that was created in 1989 by Milton Bradley and Games Workshop. The contents of the box and the game itself contained a variety of monsters, hero players, furniture, cards spells, rules, and much more.

The detailed list below will let you know what the contents are in the boxed HeroQuest game or, contents in a box of Hero Quest!

This list will help you if you are looking to replace missing parts of your game to sell, or if you are looking to make a ‘complete’ edition of your game to collect.

Keeping track of what was actually included in the original game can be difficult, but hopefully, this list will make it slightly easier!

* Note: The UK edition of the game comes with somewhat slightly different content than the American or European edition.

This ‘content break down’, ( or list ) is also mentioned in another article that discusses where you can buy the spare HeroQuest parts.

The original sources for this list were read from Board Game Geek for clarification and myself, being a once proud owner of the game.

I believe all that is written to be as accurate and true as possible from both memory and online sources. Keeping in mind, that this was the UK only edition, and a little while ago.

If this has answered what are the contents of a HeroQuest Boardgame or what do you get in a box of Hero Quest, feel to share this page.

HeroQuest was a great game. ( still is )

All the best on your journey… or should I say quest!
