Wizards have revealed the Magic: The Gathering Strategy Board Game, hex-based miniatures game with modular terrain where you play as a Planeswalker.
The team behind Risk Legacy and Heroscape are helping with the design, and the aim is to create a 2-5 player game based on key M:TG mechanics. Here’s the official blurb:
In the Magic: The Gathering Strategy Board Game, players customize the battlefield by designing the map then placing terrain and powerful gylphs. Then players choose one of five different Planeswalkers and move their figure and unique creature squads around the map in a race to out-maneuver opponents and gain tactical advantages! Cast devastating spells, summon powerful squads, and tap into your unique Planeswalker abilities to defeat your opponents. Be the last Planeswalker standing to win!
The game is set in the “mana-rich world of Shandalar” and stars five Planeswalkers, only four of whom have been revealed: Chandra Nalaar, Jace Beleren, Nissa Revane and Liliana Vess. The white Planeswalker is as yet unknown. Here’s some pics:
