Re: Magic: the Gathering Strategy Board Game (Looks HeroScap

Finally caught up and will add to the chorus. Others have already voiced it, but this game will not be Magic or Heroscape but will be inspired by both. Given the designer and the base games it's drawing from, I think it's very likely to be a good game that is a lot of fun on its own. And sure, you can always mine parts of it for Heroscape just as you can do with many other products. In this case, you could probably even draw inspiration from the design.

It seems that people are a little split over the Magic brand, and reasons for that vary from person to person. I've heard people complain about it for the cost involved and it being a CCG, for the community built around it, or for the crazy combos players can put together. I can't remark on what sort of collectible aspect they'll have with this game, but all of those concerns should be curtailed by the fact that it is going to be smaller. A new product can't suddenly have 20+ years of material behind it and producing miniatures has a much different cost profile than printing cards (molds are expensive). It will appeal to a more niche community and will likely not draw some of the more polarizing elements that have pushed many people away from the game.

I recommend putting aside expectations of this being Heroscape born again and just look at this game for what it is. I'm willing to keep my eye on it and see how what time brings in the coming year.

Spoiler Alert!

I don't see why the squads being unpainted and have more than 1 life is a problem if you want to use them in HS. You could just call it as a new mechanism in Heroscape, summoned squads. I think it'd be very easy to use this in HS with little adjustment. I like it!

As a base layer I am. That layer would save a ton on the set-up time & make your other tiles go further since you wouldn't be wasting them on the base layer.

Nah. I'd be surprised if it weren't Ajani.

This.

I just don't think they've nailed down who they want to use. Ajani seems the most likely to me though.

Re: Magic: the Gathering Strategy Board Game (Looks HeroScap

It could always be Gideon, too. With Elspeth out of the stable of white planeswalkers, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if it's some new character that they'll debut in the card game around the same time as some cross-promotional thing.
