Magic: the Gathering Strategy Board Game

From appearances alone, this game barely qualifies as "not Heroscape." I bring you, Magic the Gathering Board Game:


How 'bout that?

It's a joke, right? A mean, mean, cruel prank? Did you notice this part?

EDIT: This will be great for C3V, mini-wise.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Those flat tiles aren't bad looking. I hope they're fully compatible.

Heroscape spiritual successor?

Hasboro and WotC announced during Essen Spiel a Magic the Gathering tactical mini's board game, developed by the team behind Heroscape. While early in development, it looks like Heroscape.

The outer edge looks distinctly incompatible, while all the other edges look like they are actually Heroscape tiles. I wonder what they ultimately end up looking like.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Seems like they should make them compatible, just so they can sell a bunch of sets to Heroscape fanatics. I'm not sure what the downside would be for them.

Re: Heroscape spiritual successor?

Scooped! by @Dad_Scaper . Although a separate thread for discussing this seems appropriate.

--

I'm really excited by this news. I hope the game isn't dumb; although how can it be if the people working on it are what that release seems to imply. More importantly, if it proves to be a cool game, I hope they sell it at a price where they can make a profit and keep selling it indefinitely.

Here is a link with pictures:

I'll have to admit, the figures look great, and this would mean more terrain.

I'm just sayin.

AWESOME!

I do hope the terrain is compatible, but some if it doesn't look like it. Hopefully we'll be able to use the figures and terrain.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Wonder if copyright actually prevents them from being compatible? Although if its the same companies, it shouldn't. And that other company seems to be putting out compatible tiles! Well, any development is a good development! Cheaper materials such as may become available from 3D printing will eventually get us going again with new stuff...maybe.

If you're talking about HeroScape, I'm not sure it was making enough money to be profitable, which is what the shareholders of a company want.

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!
