    NECA/WizKids Announces the re-launch of the Mage Knight ™ Property

    (WizKids to release Mage Knight Board Game by Vlaada Chvátil)

    HILLSIDE, NJ – October 21, 2010 NECA/WizKids, the leader in collectible gaming, is proud to announce the re-launch of the Mage Knight property.  In 2000, Mage Knight defined miniatures gaming by combining a rich back-story, detailed pre-painted miniatures and revolutionary game play.  Mage Knight will honor that spirit of innovation within the property by expanding it across several platforms.

    The initial Mage Knight offering for release will be a board game designed by Vlaada Chvátil, designer of the acclaimed games: Dungeon Lords, Through the Ages and Galaxy Trucker.

    “For me, Mage Knights combine the greatest fantasy archetypes – honor and wisdom, strength and magic.  I want to bring to life a Mage Knight as an individual who steers the wheels of history and gives birth to legends. My hope is to capture that essence in a new and engaging way for fantasy fans around the world” says Chvátil.

    WizKids President Lax Chandra says “Mage Knight launched our company and created a new industry CMG of gaming. Ten years later, we have come full circle. We have wanted to work with Vlaada for a long time and we are thrilled with his vision to make this a new experience while still carrying forward the world that so many people fell in love with.”

    In addition to the first boxed set, WizKids/NECA plans several brand extensions set in the Mage Knight universe, including a new take on deck building games and role-playing games.

    Tired of the traditional Hack n' Slash standard game? Want to try something just a little bit different? Then keep you eye out for the download section for scenarios for MKD (Mage Knight Dungeons)! Our first scenario is a zip file with 2 pdf files in it. The first is the scenario "Necropolis Prisons" and the second is special tokens and map tiles you can use for the game! Can you save the prisoners before time runs out, or the other team gets them first?

  • Dungeon Deck Play Tested

    Posted on March 23rd, 2004 Highland_Piper No comments

    So here I have been making all these tiles and cards and I still had not tried them out.

    I was not able to find anyone to play a game with me so I tried it out with the Solo Rules. All and all I must say I enjoyed it very much.

    I took 11 dungeon cards and the tiles that represent them. I picked my starting position and drew my first card. I will not into major depths into the battles and magespawn I fought as this is not a battle report but a play testing report. o­n the following picture I labled the tiles as I drew them.

  • MKD Dream Team 4

    Posted on October 4th, 2003 Highland_Piper No comments

    When thinking of the Dream Teams the first thing I try to do is make a combination that is different and rarely used by most players. Why you ask (or even if you did not ask)? Because I've noticed a trend in teams that most players use, and they are all about the same. With all the different options of Heroes out there I knew that different combinations can be used. Besides they would o­nly collect dust at the bottom of your storage bin, and that is a waste of money. The next thing I look for is to make the team fun and challenging, even difficult at times. This time I also wanted to add a theme. I got several. This team is a Range Combat Team, Has o­ne figure from each Dungeons booster (Dungeon, Pyramids, Hero Quest, and Dragons Gate) and by accident they are all Female.
