HeroQuest Official Quest Order

Your unofficial source for the Official HeroQuest quest play order.

What order should I play the HeroQuest Expansions in? This is a question that I see often. Hopefully this I’ll put your mind at ease. Here is the official Quest Order, confirmed by Zargon on Twitter[1] Avalon Bill on the Avalon Hill Discord[2].

I will attempt to keep this page updated with the most up-to-date list from Avalon Hill. If you notice any errors or corrections that need to be made, feel free to reach out to me in the comment section below.

Please Note: The Classic quests listed here are not part of Avalon Hill’s official Play Order and are purely the opinion of fans in the order they take place, nor is this a list that must be adhered to. It is completely up to the players on what order the quests can be played, this is merely a suggestion. This list also is not in order of difficulty, just because a quest appears later in the list does not mean it is more difficult than a quest that appears earlier, quest difficulty is varying throughout the journey.

Added purchase links for Prophecy of Telor, Spirit Queen’s Torment, and Against the Ogre Horde which are all now available at retail. Also added download links for the quest books of: Prophecy of Telor, Spirit Queen’s Torment, and Rise of the Dread Moon.
  • Update 07/18/2023: I’ve now included the classic EU quests in this list. Using community feedback, we’ve made the decision to place them directly following Return of the Witch Lord in the sequence.
