November 14, 2017 – Hillside, NJ – WizKids, the leader in high-quality pre-painted miniatures and established board games, today revealed plans for an upcoming miniatures line and board game featuring the world-renowned trading card game, Magic: The Gathering. The new IP extends WizKids’ existing licensing partnership with leading game creators Wizards of the Coast, which already includes the famed Dungeons & Dragons.

The announcement combines the expertise of WizKids’ sculpted miniatures with the original Trading Card Game brand recognized the world over, immersing fans in the world of Magic!

The initial pre-painted sculpted miniatures will focus on token creature card favorites, adding a premium touch to the player’s table top experience while the board game will pull from the original trading card lore. Players will play as Planeswalkers, exploring the landscape of Dominaria as they establish connections to their mana sources, gathering power before their opponents do and building their hand of spell cards.

“We’re introducing a long-time, beloved brand to an all new medium,” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids. “Producing high-quality miniatures and bringing to market captivating board games is at the heart of WizKids. We could not be more excited to extend our relationship with Wizards of the Coast with Magic: The Gathering.”

The new miniatures line and board game are set to release in Fall 2018.

Congratulations to this year’s Origins Award recipients!

The capitalistic city-state known simply as The Factory, which fueled the war with heavily armored mechs, has closed its doors, drawing the attention of several nearby countries. It is a time of farming and war, broken hearts and rusted gears, innovation and valor. Featuring world building and art by Jakub Rozalski, Scythe is a competitive 4x game set in an alternate-history 1920s.

Clank! is a deck-building game that challenges players to sneak to the depths of a dungeon guarded carefully by an angry and protective dragon. Each adventurer must collect at least one artifact in order to escape, but they must do so as quietly as possible to avoid attracting the attention of the dragon. 



Each careless sound draws her attention, and each artifact stolen increases her rage. You can only enjoy your plunder if you make it out of the depths alive!

SKU: RGS 00569
MSRP: $25.00
Players: 2-4

Following an extremely successful launch, it has been reprinted numerous times and recently expanded with Clank! Sunken Treasures. This new expansion adds a double sided board, new underwater mechanics, and additional cards to continue the adventure.

The Mensa Awards do a great job of celebrating the use of games to explore all the facets of our mental abilities,” states Scott Gaeta, President of Renegade Game Studios. “We’re honored to be presented with this prestigious award for the fourth year in a row.”
