WizKids have announced that they will be releasing a board game and miniatures based on the popular collectible card game, Magic: The Gathering.
The Magic: The Gathering: Heroes of Dominaria Board Game (or just 'Heroes of Dominaria' is fine) is a Euro game for 2 -4 players. In it, you play as a Hero, traveling Dominaria, building sites and recovering artifacts, all while protecting the multiverse from the Cabal.
In more detail, players can discover artifacts to draw mana from distant lands. Mana can be used to enhance their abilities and recruit fellow heroes. Players can also form bonds with locations by building a site.
Heroes of Dominaria is planned to have two versions upon release. The Standard version, will feature just pawns for characters, whereas the Premium version will include 4 prepainted miniatures depicting playable heroes from the world of Magic.
WizKids also have plans to release miniatures based on the Magic world. Magic: The Gathering Creature Forge: Overwhelming Swarm will depict token figures, which are scaled to size with the official Dungeons and Dragons miniatures.
This pack will include 28 tokens, including Angels, Soldiers, Goblins, Zombies, Bears, Dragons, and Dinosaurs. Each of the token's bases will be coloured to represent the creature's mana, and will detail the in-game stats.
Magic: The Gathering Creature Forge: Overwhelming Swarm set is expected to hit store shelves in July 2018, while Magic: The Gathering: Heroes of Dominaria Board Game Standard & Premium Editions are slated for an August 2018 release!
Overwhelming Swarm is slated for a July 2018 release and Heroes of Dominaria is due out August 2018. Both will preview this week at GAMA Trade Show in Nevada, U.S.A.
