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, not 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.

  • 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. If you would like to only see the currently available quests made by Avalon Hill, make sure to toggle off “Classic Quests” using the toggle buttons below.

This is really awesome, including the EU campaigns is really great, thank you so much for doing this. If I’m not mistaken, the only official content missing would be the classic Japanese campaign (Neef Island), but I’m not sure if that would fit somewhere in the list or if it should be played as an individual spin-off campaign from scratch. What do you think?

The Japanese Edition questbook I think may be played at any time, it is not linked with any other events of HeroQuest campaigns. I see it an aisle adventure happening in islands far away from the Empire domains, where Mentor could send the Heroes for another quest fighting for the free peoples, therefore I think it could be compatible with the rest of HeroQuest stories, not an alternate Universe needed in this case, imho.

Thinking about whre Knight Fall should be placed… in my humble opinion I don’t see clear if online quest Knight Fall occurs after MOTM.
The only details we can derive about its story are that it occurs after ROTWL and before ROTDM, which allows a lot of options where to be placed.
They only official information about it is that Hasbro recommends to play it before ROTDM, but I think we don’t know exactly when its story actually happens.

Before the title of “Knightfall” was revealed, it was referred to as “Rise of the Dread Moon Prequel Quest” for those demo sessions at GenCon. Plus it uses the (spoiler) Specter figure and some furniture pieces found in ROTDM, so it is primarily intended to show off that pack and for owners of it (though easy enough to run it with proxies if you wish). So having it take place immediately before ROTDM makes sense. Whether you play something between MOTM and it of course is up to you…

Fully agree with the order you selected for AtOH, WoM and TDC !! (Just based in storytelling reasons)

Knight Fall is an official quest that will bridge Mage of the Mirror to Rise of the Dread Moon. It will be available to download free after it’s YouTube introduction on “Hasbro Day” 2023, July 15th.
