This article pretends to be a short update to my most successful entry to-date. Surprisingly for me, the article I wrote about Hero Quest is the most visited in the (short) history of this blog. Several weeks ago, I found Wizards of Morcar in a flea Market, and bought it, unfortunately without the box.
In that article, I already talked about some of the expansions that were released in the early 90s. This one was the last expansion released only in Europe, what makes it a complete rarity, and very difficult to find (as you can notice from this image, also shown in the first Hero Quest article).
The first one is already known from the “Hero Quest – Master Edition”, and is the 12 Henchmen figures with interchangeable weapons, which help the heroes in their quests (plus the cards to play with them).
The second one is the four magicians of the title, which are evil and have to be defeated. Each wizard has his own spells cards and characteristics, but all of them are evil and have to be defeated. The new card plates are also related to the magicians, like different types of blockades, mist or crevice.
The base game rules turn quite complicate when playing with such an expansion, and not to mention, if this expansion is combined with some more… this game is really only for experts.
The instructions and adventure book comes again with great artwork. Sorry for the pictures of the magicians, I should have taken a different background colour.
