2x3 battlefields common variant???
« on: September 03, 2013, 11:58:08 PM »
Hey guys, new poster here. I've been seeing a lot of pictures related to organized play with people using 2x3 zone boards. How common is this? Is this a variant for quick games?

On another note, what are some of your favorite ways to play with regards to spellbook creation, spell points, different boards, and 4 player?

2x3 boards are mainly used for apprentice play...for new players

2 vs 2 with a combined spell book point limit.(both mages use a combined total of 120 pts divided as they choose between the two mages...reguarding epic, mage only, and total card limits) on a 3x4 board with all mages starting in different corners with the teams on same side.

Or a 1 vs 3 on a 3x4 board

Solo mage receives an additional QC and starts with normal stats all opposed mages start with neg 10 life and cannot summon creatures on their first turn

Are alternate sized boards pretty common for casual play? I thought a 3x3 board might be good for a quicker 1v1 and 4x4 might be best for FFA. Maybe even some weird shapes such as...

OOOOOO
OOOOOO
     OO   
     OO   

I have even seen someone mention a 5x5 board for large games.
