Ask Craig Van Ness...

Hey guys,

I've got an opportunity to do an interview with Craig for an upcoming feature on Heroscape that I'm writing for the newspaper here in Sac that runs my regular column. It'll be a general introductory piece on Heroscape, its design, its history, and its value for those looking for family entertainment on a budget.

So, with that in mind, I have about 15 questions that I can ask Craig and would love to get some questions from you guys that you might want to see answered. Bear in mind that this is going to be a general-interest piece to an audience uniformed about HS, so technical/strategy questions aren't really going to make the cut. But if there's something that you've been wondering, please post and let me know- I'll see if I can work it in.

...Just another nerd.

Re: Ask Craig Van Ness...

I was under the impression that Craig no longer works directly with Heroscape as he's with Hasbro and WOTC now deal with Heroscape?

That's correct. But because I wanted to do an interview with one of the creators and their inspiration for the game, WotC was able to hook me up with an interview with Craig, even in his capacity with Hasbro.

I'm also dealing with the current Brand Manager for Heroscape, so more recent questions regarding the brand will go through him, not Craig.

Cool. Ask him why Taelord costs so much?

I do not have a question but I'd love to see the article when it runs. Does the paper have an online edition?

Re: Ask Craig Van Ness...

For Mr. Van Ness: From where did you get the inspiration for HeroScape? How many games have you designed? Where would HeroScape rank among those?

For the manager: What are you doing to ensure that HeroScape remains popular into the future? Would you consider taking pre-orders of the next wave to assure that their is still a large market? Can you get all the big retailers to continue to stock HeroScape (like Target and Toys'R'Us)?

Oh yeah, and don't forget to ask for an autograph.

Ugg. It does, but is also a completely bothersome system. I'll get an archive of it up here when it runs.

Re: Ask Craig Van Ness...

HeroQuest, Stratego Legends, BattleMasters...
all seem like stages in evolution to HeroScape...
Will there be another stage?

Re: Ask Craig Van Ness...

To Mr. Van Ness -- Do you and Steve Baker have any plans to do any games together in the future? Any chance on making an updated Heroquest? I know you want to.

Please ask him this question. Toy's R Us needs to start selling Heroscape again. Then I can buy some Valcarean Wasteland and some flagbarrers.
