Wizkids releases first details of new Magic boardgame

WizKids has released first details of the new Magic boardgame at the Gama Trade Show in Las Vegas:

In Magic: The Gathering: Heroes of Dominaria Board Game, players take on the role of a powerful Hero as they travel to the lands of Dominaria. As the player explores the ancient lands, they will need to build sites, rediscover lost artifacts, and confront the sinister Cabal in order to gain the resources needed to save the multiverse before rival Heroes do.

In this Euro game designed for 2 to 4 players, explore Magic’s most iconic plane and experience the trials and tribulations of being a heroic force on Dominaria. Visit storied locations such as Llanowar, Urborg, and Keld. Draw mana from the world to power abilities and recruit heroes to aid in quests. Discover powerful artifacts and create leylines to draw even more mana from distant lands. Build sites to increase your bond with a location. The land of Dominaria is filled with adventure and excitement! In true Eurogame fashion, use strategy to score the most victory points and emerge victorious.

The game includes (not final) a game board, 4 player mats, 16 hero tokens, 24 site tokens, 32 leyline tokens, 150 mana tokens, 1 turn tracker token, 20 cabal tokens, 15 artifact tokens, 20 site mana tokens, 50 card Dominaria deck, 45 card quest deck, 10 public quest tiles, 20 card artifact deck, rulebook, and two-part organizational tray. Release is planned for August/September.

Wizkids announces Beyond the Edge

Wizkids is continuing to expand their board game line and has announced Beyond the Edge:

In Beyond the Edge, created by Ken Shannon, the players are heroic starship captains trying to preserve the tiny remnants of a universe where the very fabric of space and time has been mangled by ancient wars. Setting out from the free planet Orion, they must contend with pirates and other threats as they discover what exists out in space. The game uses a system called “Evolve/Beyond” that allows players to retain what they have gained from one game to the next, creating a story for their character that carries through with each playing in a manner similar to “legacy” style games. The decisions players make and the groups they ally with determine what abilities and upgrades they can earn in later games. They can even use the “Dry Dock” system to take their characters and ships and use them in games with a different group of players.

Expected release date for the legacy-style game is April and we will offer it for pre-orders as soon as we have the details for the UK release.

2018 is here – a (late) Happy New Year to everyone!

We are back in action and the first two days last week have already been quite busy. On Friday we received the first new games of the year:

And the good stuff keeps on coming: for this week we are finally expecting the release of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle and The Monster Box of Monsters, the first expansion. Also expected to arrive is the reprint of Altiplano and Tybor the Builder, the new Mayfair Games card game set in the world of Longsdale.

And to look a bit further ahead: We’ve just added the pre-orders for Dark Souls – The Card Game and Alien Artifacts: Discovery (first expansion pack for Alien Artifacts) to the website. Both games/expansions are expected to be available sometime in March.
