Wizkids’ Mageknight LIVES!

The classic Mageknight  game from Wizkids comes back with a vengeance!

December 7, 2011 sees the release of MageKnight in a fresh new boardgame format. Fans of the game might remember it as the foremost ‘clix’ (figures with clickable bases for their stats and abilities) game of 2000. Wizkids came up with the clix concept at the turn of the new millenium and since then, a slew of collectible miniatures games followed suit including the ever-popular Heroclix (also by Wizkids).

In this new format, the boardgame will have players as Mageknights, powerful adventurers off to gain fame and fortune. But it would ot be easy as monsters and other Mageknigts will be there to thwarth their plans!

The game will include an impressive amount of components: 240 cards, 8 intricately painted miniatures, 196 tokens, 20 map tiles, 54 mana crystals, 7 mana dice, 2 game mats and 2 rulebooks. SO far, Wizkids has not yet annnounced if the game will have expansions in the future.
