Mage Wars (Video Review)

15 October 2012 3 Comments

Mage Wars® is the customizable strategy game of dueling mages. Players take on the role of powerful mages, stepping into the arena to battle for supremacy. Mage Wars® is a unique genre-breaking concept, combining the best elements of customizable card games and tactical miniature games.

Players can play as a Wizard, Warlock, Beastmaster or Priestess; each with their own unique strategies and style of play. The game is fast-paced and exciting, with tough tactical decisions every turn.

Players build their own custom spellbook, with over 300 spells to choose from! The game is not collectible – players have equal access to the same spells. There is no random card drawing – players choose exactly which spells to cast, when they want to cast them! This allows for an unprecedented level of rich strategy and tactics.

Summon powerful creatures into the battle, hurl lightning bolts and fireballs, adorn yourself with mighty weapons and armor, or lay a network of hidden enchantments to take your foe by surprise. All of this and more awaits you in the arena of Mage Wars! With subtle strategies and diabolical surprises, the balance of power can shift each round, keeping the game exciting and victory unpredictable.

Future expansions will offer new mages, spells, and strategies! Very important: Mage Wars is customizable, but not collectible. Everything you need to play is in the box, and players can carefully choose just the expansions they want.

    Excellent review! You really hit on all the points I love about the game so far. I’m just about to wean myself off the starter spell books and attempt some custom kick-ass. I bought two cores and the tomb so I can have teaching books at hand & build a couple of custom powerhouses.

    Doh. I’m using an iPad and miss clicked on your review giving only 1 star. There isn’t a way to change it. You deserve 5!

    Hah! No worries. Wow… two cores? I’ve been tempted just for the extra books and board.
