With the upcoming Kickstarter campaign for the HoMM3: The Board Game my interest in board games really increased. Since the release of the Heroes 3 Borad game is still a long way off, I decided to look for something similar. I found Mage Knight, which I pre-ordered back in December 2021 and assumed it would be as a gift for my birthday in March, oh, how wrong I was :D.
Mage Knight: Ultimate Edition arrived on August 1, 2022. It’s a massive box full of content and minifigures. I just have to learn the rules and maybe I’ll play it during Christmas. Do you have experience with this board game?
Where to buy?
I have a reprint in the Czech lang and I bought it on ihrysko.sk
The Mage Knight Board Game throws you and up to three other Mage Knights into the sprawling and ever changing world of the Atlantean Empire, a land that is but a distant memory since your transformation into a mysterious Mage Knight. Build your armies, defeat bands of marauding enemies, and eventually conquer cities in the name of the mysterious Void Council.
Designed by renowned designer Vlaada Chvatil, Mage Knight is a game of Epic Exploration and Conquest that mixes character development, intrigue, and the clashing of swords to create a truly unique gaming experience.
Mage Knight Ultimate Edition CZ, 2. edition
As a Mage Knight you must control your reputation and walk the line or embrace the role of benevolent leader or brutal dictator. Accumulate Fame and experience to acquire powerful Spells and abilities, then use your power to influence units to join your ranks. Will you destroy an ancient Draconum and gain favor with the people, or burn down a monastery to steal the powerful artifact hidden there? Both paths may lead to victory, but the decision is yours to make.
Ultimate Edition CZ – side view
The Mage Knight Board Game comes with a variety of campaign options, allowing you to play both competitively or cooperatively. Will your path intertwine with your fellow Mage Knights as you quest to conquer the Atlantean cities, or will you be sleeping with one eye open?
I’m really excited to hear that you got a fucking MAGE KNIGHT ULTIMATE EDITION ! xD
A really great game, pure Chvatil for better and for worse, imho. 🙂
I can’t wait to hear from you about about this game…
By the way, if you want better components for the game, you can find them easily, for example on Etsy.
Cheers from France and keep up the good work on h3W.net ! 😉
yes, it’s an amazing Ultimate Edition that includes significantly improved miniatures according to what I read on FB comments 🙂
Etsy? I have to find out what it is first 😀 I’m just getting into playing board games.
I will definitely like to add something about Mage Knight to shorten the wait for the Heroes 3 board game.
Wow, what a kickass edition of a kickass game. My hat’s off to you, and consider me envious.
I have been waiting for this version since December 2022. But the wait was worth it.
Have you played it yet? I couldn’t find a review on your website.
Hey Liso1, thanks for the reply !
Etsy is an e-commerce site focused on handmade or vintage items and craft supplies!
In particular, there are people who sell improved material for certain board games.
For example for Mage Knight, there are several visual improvements (board, buildings, figurines, etc.). Take a look in particular at the PlanszowyDobromir’s shop : https://www.etsy.com/fr/shop/PlanszowyDobromir?listing_id=790183715§ion_id=28178509
On BoardGameGeek, there are photos of the result that this can give, for example: https: //boardgamegeek.com/image/6168923/mage-knight-ultimate-edition
But I agree with the fact that this new edition already presents figures of better quality than the old version!
Maybe you should test the game several times first before investing !
MK is a great game but it takes a lot of time and energy (the rules are a bit complicated too) imho.
Hope this helps a bit, it’s the least I can do with all you do for me with heroes3wog.net !! ;D
