Wiz-War 8th Ed.
Wiz-War is a card and board game of battling wizards and stolen treasures! Each wizard starts with 2 treasures in his sector and 7 cards which represent spells he or she can cast as the game progresses. As the Wizards use spells against each other, they replenish their "spell hand" with fresh spells from the deck of cards. Eventually one Wizard will move into other player's sectors and steal away the two treasures needed to win the game, taking advantage of his or her spells to perform such actions as becoming invisible, turning to mist, creating walls, casting fireballs, making thorn bushes, forcing other players to drop objects, along with numerous other actions available in the deck of cards. Wizards have a chance to draw from over 90 different types of cards as they combat one another (possibly to the death).
Components: 4 game boards, 4 wizards, lots of cardboard tokens, 160+ cards, rule booklet, and treasure tokens!
Number of players: 2-4 for the basic set.
Price: $49.95. Check out our order page.
