But, but, but...that's...statistically...UNPOSSIBLE!

It should really be called "Onehammer Quest". Seriously, though, it was funny until it wasn't. But I'm getting ahead of myself...

Warhammer Quest is a game from what I like to call the Golden Age of Games Workshop. WHQ was released sometime back in the early nineties when GW was churning out all sorts of games. The big ones that we know of today, Fantasy and 40K were around, but so were forgotten gems like Man'O'War and Necromunda, Mordheim and Bloodbowl. This was also the time that GW was producing a lot of stand alone games that you could buy in a box for about $50. It was the time when GW was packing SO much value into their boxed sets that if you were to buy them today, they would easily go for $250. Not joking. Look at ebay. Warhammer Quest is one of those $250 packages.

As it turns out, though, WHQ had never popped up on my radar (I blame Space Hulk) until Mark and Christian started talking about it recently. I have to admit that I wasn't chomping at the bit to play the game. I'm more of a Sci-fi fan than fantasy and the idea of a dungeon crawler isn't really my cup of tea. That being said, I sat down to a game to give it a shot.
