Magic: The Gathering: Wizkids Board Game Incoming!
Some exciting news coming out of GAMA Trade Show that’s happening right now in Nevada!
The popular card game franchise Magic the Gathering are teaming up with Wizkids to create a new board game featuring miniatures.
Check out the press release below for all the information you need…
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.
Magic: The Gathering: Heroes of Dominaria Board Game will be available in two versions: Standard and Premium. Both versions include pawns, but the premium will also include 4 prepainted miniatures of iconic Magic: The Gathering Heroes!
A brand-new series of token creatures comes to life in Wizkids’ newest miniatures release, Magic: The Gathering Creature Forge: Overwhelming Swarm. Bring a new dimension of life to your battleground with these token figures that are sculpted in scale with WizKids’ D&D minis line.
The inaugural set will feature 28 tokens spanning well known creature types from Magic’s 25-year history. Discover never-before-seen three-dimensional representations of some of your favorites, like Angels, Soldiers, Goblins, Zombies, Bears, Dragons, Dinosaurs, and so much more!
Each token will come with a base that represents one of the five iconic colors that make up the foundation of Magic’s mana system. Mainstays like artifacts and multicolored creatures can also be found in the set, each with its own unique corresponding colored base. Game stats are also shown on the base, making these tokens perfect for both play and display.
While the Creature Forge is scheduled to land in July of this year, the board game itself will be following shortly after in August.
All sounds pretty cool huh? As a long time fan of Magic the Gathering I’m looking forward to seeing more of this!
