WizKids Games is excited to announce the timing for the English reprint of its 2011 smash-hit epic fantasy board game Mage Knight by acclaimed designer Vlaada Chvátil.The response to the Mage Knight Board Game upon its initial release in November of 2011 was so overwhelming that the first production run— which was anticipated to sustain the market for the entirety of the calendar year— was sold out in just 20 days!
Among other accolades, the Mage Knight Board Game has recently been hailed as the 2011 Game of the Year by two online game review sites— CrackedLCD and RockPaperShotgun (Please Note: strong language used on this site). The Dice Tower Network game reviewer Tom Vasel calls Mage Knight “THE best adventure fantasy game I’ve ever played— by far!” in his best games of 2011 podcast and rated Mage Knight as his #2 Game of the Year for 2011— beat out only by another 2011 WizKids release Star Trek: Fleet Captains! (The Dice Tower Episode 240: approx. time stamp: 1:20:20)
Look for your opportunity to live the adventure starting on April 18 when Mage Knight will be available to North American retailers. For international customers, please contact your distributors regarding product availability. Local languages are planned for German and Czech currently with more in the works and exact timing to be determined.Thank you to Vlaada and to all the fans!
