I have Terror in the Dark, and I got it from an American.

Yes Advanced HeroQuest, the Paint set and Terror in the Dark expansions all were sold in the U.S.
I got mine in a hobby shop that sold D&D, Warhammer, comics, and other board games.
HeroQuest, the 4 U.S. HQ expansions (but not Wizards of Morcar or Against the Ogre horde or the Design kit) and Battlemasters were available in larger retail stores. I got mine at K-Mart and Shopko.

Hero Quest, KK & ROTWL and Battlemasters were definitely released in retail in the US. I wonder if those specialty shops imported Advanced Hero Quest from the UK and that's why they carried it? I guess if the suggested retail price was in pounds vs. dollars that would answer that question.

Does anybody recall seeing EQP or BQP in regular stores? I never saw them and never heard about them except through the mail order fliers included with KK/ROTWL.
