Welcome Back, Heroscape

On November 3, 2010, Wizards of the Coast announced the end of the official Heroscape line. Well, today at GenCon, August 3, 2022, Hasbro announced the return of Heroscape! See Hasbro's awesome official announcement, with cool new graphics, right here:

With the incomparable Craig Van Ness at the helm, design work on the new Master Set is well underway. Craig's team has included our own community's dad_scaper, dok, kevindola, skyknight, and xorlof, and Craig himself has been running point.

There is lots that the team members can't discuss right now, but some that it can. For instance, we were told early on that this revival is possible because of you! That's right, the ongoing community support for our beloved game was one of the essential ingredients in the decision to bring it back.

For now, let's just sit tight, and wait for more information, while we pick the brains of the team members for as much information as they is authorized to share.

Welcome back, official 'Scape!!!

I’m gonna agree with GaryLASQ, my Christmas list just got redefined. HeroScape Club is going to see a resurgence at school and Canuck and I will have to get back to videos.

So happy this is happening. This game was too good to let die.

Excitement to the maximum extent. Heroscape is coming back, Craig Van Ness is leading it again, Heroscapers community members will be involved, the new Heroscape will be under Avalon Hill and not Wizards of the Coast. Simply stated just awesome and can't wait!

I just had to log in to say thank you Craig and the rest of the team. I wish you much success. And thanks to all y'all who have been keeping the Heroscapers site going.
