I would also put TSR's DragonSrike on the list, but there are really no good web sites for it. No small wonder, though. It is more cheesy than a triple cheese pizza. Still the boards are nice and are featured in the Do You HQ link Jim provided.

The more I look at options for room tiles and overlays, I'm wondering if it would be worth my while to just build a big empty board with a grid on it. The board would be the same space count as the original HeroQuest board.
On this I can place the corridor and room tiles as we explore. This way all the rooms and corridor parts are separate. This way I can still use all the adventures designed for the game, but have a clean dungeon layout. And especially nice, a clear board.
I am also thinking it can me coded, numbers on the top row with letters down the side. This way pre-programmed solo adventures can be played by referring to the space code and placing the right tile or figure for the adventure.
I'll have to think about this some more. It does open up the possibilities of using the area of the HeroQuest board, but have truly unlimited versatility. This would also limit the size of the dungeons to what will fit on the board.
If someone has already tried this, I haven't seen it.
I also might try converting some of the Decent adventures to HeroQuest format. I also have a cute idea for incorporating my Arthur figures, a Monty Python inspired adventures for each of the main characters, a Sir Robins quest to rescue his minstrels, King Arthurs quest for the Holy Grail, Sir Galahads quest to attack the fortress Anthrax, you get the idea, could be fun.
I can't wait to I get enough figures done to take a break and fiddle around with some games! JIM

I had a lot of fun with Warhammer Quest - and still have my sets. The rules used to be available as a free download (by permission of GW) but it appears that they are gone now. So, let me add another to the list for WH Quest - The Museum, which once held those rules.
Awesome! I just recently did about 4 miles in Mammoth Cave (KY), tho I didn't get to do the wild cave tour Maybe another time. I did do the wild cave tour at Blanchard Springs (AR) a few years back, that was a blast. Do you just do local caves (meaning Arkansas), or do you travel out of state?
There are three kinds of people in this world: those who can count and those who can't.

Mostly caves in Arkansas. I've caved in Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana, too, but not in at least 15 years. I've got some friends that just came back from a weeklong survey in Mammoth - they have been trying to get me to go for a while, but right now just isn't the right time. Maybe someday! ;D

Toman: the bikes now go in the fenced back yard now. after nine years never had an issue with bikes, we did end up with an extra scooter last summer that no one could identify. I think because it was kind of a piece of junk

cowboyleland: Apparently bike theft is rife. Covid makes people want to bike instead of bus so it is a sellers market in the bike world. :/
