Academy-SetupMage Wars isn’t a new game but Arcane Wonders is consistently making great releases for the system.  Here is the Product Description for Mage Wars .


Mage Wars Academy pits you against your opponent in a Mage’s duel, using a unique Spellbook mechanic that provides you access to all you strategies rather than relying on the luck of the draw.  Train in your school, craft your spellbook, and test your skills at the Academy!

The Mage Wars Academy Core Set is everything two players need to begin their duels in the world of Etheria.  Items included in the Academy Core Set are:

  • 2 Mage Cards
  • 2 Mage Ability Cards
  • 2 Four-pocket Spellbooks
  • 2 Status Trackers
  • 131 Spell Cards
  • 62 Markers
  • 6 Attack Dice
  • 1 Twelve-sided Effect Die
  • Rules and Codex

All Pre-Orders will also receive two new promo cards at Gen Con, the Gorgon Spearthrower and Shock!


What I find to be awesome about this is that it’s a stand alone game with no board.  It’s super light and super easey to carry from place to place, plus it plays faster.  Oh and did I mention it’s completely compatible with Mage Wars Arena. I’ll be chatting with Arcane wonders next week about this and some of the new DTE games.
