Im willing to buy collection and expansion if the price is right not talking about ebay prices

Hit me up with offers we can negotiate via facebook or private message here

I live in canada but i can ship in us i got an adress there too

For payment we do paypal goods and services so we are both covered :)

What are you searching for exactly?
On ebay you can find prices very variable. I see the same pack sold for 30 or for 150.

Some of these expansions are rather difficult to find. Finding them reasonably priced is even harder.

I wasn't able to find Frozen Horror or Mage of the Mirror at a decent price, but you can find 3D print files for the figurines on line. If you're lucky a local library may be able to make some for you.

This website does offer the cards and tiles if you wish to recreate those. Sadly it's the path some of us have to take to make up for what cannot be found.

You may just have to bite the bullet and pay the ebay prices if you really want them for your collection, thats what i did a couple of months ago.

FYI these are the average prices they are going for as of late, of course condition plays a role:

HeroQuest (Base Game) - $200+ (price has increased as of late)

Kellars Keep - $100+ (price has increased as of late)

Return of the Witch Lord - $100+ (price has increased as of late)

Against the Ogre Horde - $350+ (price might start going up as there are fewer lately to purchase)

Wizards of Morcar - $550+ (price has dropped as of late)

Mage of the Mirror (Elf Quest) - $1000+

The Frozen Horror (Barbarian Quest) - $1000+

Some of those prices are insane. Thank the Gods that this place exists as an alternative.

Holy balls! I thought my Frozen Horror was expensive at just under $200...

I went the route of buying cheaper incomplete expansions and finding the missing pieces separately.

I don't agree with the list above...
It also depends if you are talking about UK or US versions.
My idea for the prices are the following:

Game System (US)- 140/160 USD
Base Game (UK) - 80/120 GBP
Kellar's Keep / Witch Lord (US) - from 80 to 100 USD (depending by conditions and if boxed)
Kellar's Keep / Witch Lord (UK) - from 30 to 70 GBP (depending by conditions and if boxed)
Ogre Horde (UK) - 180 /250 GBP
Wizards of Morcar (UK) - approssimatively 300/400 GBP
Barbarian or Elf Quest Pack (US) - vary from 400 to 700 USD

I guess it's nonsense to pay more than this.
The problem is... if you buy at that high prices they will continue to sell for that price. If no one will buy the prices will go down.

Also with 3D printing or resin clones people are fullfilling their miniature needs often so they will have to drop down the prices because peple will not need them anymore.
Another consideration of mine is that people searching for HQ rare stuff are usually of the age of 40 or more... until they start being busy with children work or other stuff and will (sadly) no more be nostalgically interested in HeroQuest.
