Anyone tried Mage Knight (2011)?

Post by andrewp » Tue Dec 13, 2011 11:54 am

Has anyone tried the new Mage Knight boardgame? From what I've read it's really complex (towards Magic Realm) but also highly regarded among heavy Eurogamers.

Nothing is like Magic Realm. Not even Magic Realm is like Magic Realm.

This is a spin off on the Mage Knight miniatures game I assume?
Power tends to isolate those who hold too much of it. Eventually, they lose touch with reality... and fall.

It's part of the franchise but apparently they took great liberties with the storyline. The game itself is a complex adventure game, designed by the creator of Dungeon Lords, Galaxy Trucker and Through the Ages.

Played it five times - like it a lot. Not Magic Realm complex (what is?), but there is a very rich game space to explore.

I'm back. Was just playing 'The Thing' and 'Cutthroat Caverns' with Stompy and Ryan at Dockers just now.

When are we playing Mage Knight?? Want to come to EGF this Sunday?

Nobody won. Predictably, everyone died. To my surprise though, four of us survived to make it to the final boss!
