Classic. Direct. Goofy. Fun. Full of laughs. One of the greatest beer and pretzel games ever. I know people who have made copies of this games since it is so hard to find.

Light fun. Way too much luck though, even for a beer and pretzel game.

Light, fun, and highly replayable. Scales well from 2-6 players without losing interaction and conflict.

My criterion for ranking games



http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/147053/item/2300390#item23...


1) Sense of wonder: Every game plays out so differently. Depending on what type of spells each wizards has and what strategy each one tries the game gives a different story each game. Plus the spells themselves are so flavorful and fun.

2) Meaningful/fun decisions. Using your spells and deciding to run or fight are the decisions you make from beginning to end and the decisions are so much fun and affect how the game plays out.

3) Player interaction: Combat, turning each other into stone, etc. This game has a TON of interaction.

4) Components/artwork: Pretty awful components, board, cards, etc.

5) Game length/complexity: Perfect length of the game. Everyonce in a while the game will take a bit too long, but overall goes just the right amount of time. The complexity is not too much that it is too hard to teach.


Bottom line: This is a super fun game with combat, wizards, awesome spells, fantasy theme, great miniatures, and a great experience for 2-4 players.

I can definitely see this as an inspiration for MtG. It's an enjoyable game for two. I'll have to try it with more players, but I wonder if it might bog down. Rating may be subject to "new game" syndrome and fall a bit upon further play.

I liked it. The production value isn't anything spectacular and the cards are made out of paper that isn't very conducive to dealing (to much friction). But the game itself is a lot of fun. There's a ton of different spells to cast and things you can do to mamipulate the situation.

FINALLY got the 7th (Classic) edition in a trade. Then I hear the 8th edition is coming out soon. DOH!

Silly, random, Ameritrash goodness.

You play a Wizard trying to move across a dungeon to steal two of your opponents treasures and take them back to home base (essentially a 'capture the flag' variant). The heart of the game really lies in the cards you hold These are 'spells' or weapons you can use to attack other players, change the layout of the dungeon etc.

Fun in its time but gameplay might be too random for the modern Eurogamer.

a favorite beer & pretzels game, wizards duel and play capture-the-flag in a maze, we made lots of our own cards and houserules just like everyone else over the years, traded this to get new shiny FFG version...

Better reprint before someone comes up with a nifty replacement. I'm losing the urge to play it again.

Box has some wear.
Played but in excellent condition.
One player token has been coloured in blue by hand as the game came with two yellow player tokens.

A classic that's getting a bit long in the tooth - while Richard Garfield credits CE as his inspiration for Magic: the Gathering, I've always wondered how much the card interaction in this doozy affected him.
