First of all, the game looks beautiful. In the box you get 4 painted mage knight miniatures, 4 painted cities, a punch of beautiful landscape tiles, a pile of villain tokens, and stacks of cards with great artwork.
The game works with you controlling a Mage Knight of your choice around a board that you will create as you play, to meet an objective set by the scenario you choose. You control your character using a deck of cards with the actions move, influence, attack (fire/ice/coldfire, siege, range), and block (fire,ice,coldfire). On your first turn you will draw five cards, and through clever manipulation of the cards in your hand, you can choose to explore, recruit or even engage in a combat. The challenge lies in deciding what is the best use of the cards you have drawn.Read more ›
First off - Mage Knight is not for the faint of heart! The game is complex and has a long play time. If that's not your cup of tea, this game is not for you. If you love intense games with a lot of strategic thinking involved then read on.
This game is like a beautiful, fantasy puzzle. Each player plays as one of four mage nights. You start off with a deed deck of 16 cards and a hand limit of 5 and over time - as you defeat monsters and explore - strengthen your character by leveling up (gaining skills and advanced actions), recruiting units, acquiring spells and artifacts and more. You use the cards in your hand to move, block, attack and influence (among other things). Figuring out the best use of your cards in hand is where the fun comes in (how can I do the most with the least).
The landscape changes from game to game leaving things fresh and new. You start off with a few tiles uncovered, and, as you explore, uncover new tiles and new enemies to fight.
IMO this game is best with 1 or 2 players. I can imagine there would be a lot of downtown in between turns playing with more. We play 2 player which means that - despite the length - it has been getting more plays than anything else on my shelf recently.
The components are beautiful. Replayability is high (plus there are a few expansions... which I don't have yet).
Note: if you buy this, I highly recommend 1) checking pricing at your LGS (mine was considerably cheaper) and 2) watching a game run through prior to playing. There are a lot of intricate rules and you wont get them all on your first play.

Perhaps I read too many glowing reviews and my expectations were just so high that it could never possibly deliver. Because for me it hasn't delivered. Read morePublished 11 months ago by S. Jones
