Mage Wars Academy will be at Gen Con 2015!
« on: June 15, 2015, 10:24:57 AM »
The AW team is very pleased to announce that we will have a limited supply of Mage Wars Academy available at Gen Con 2015 this year!  We have pre-orders for Gen Con Pick up available through our store online to ensure you can secure your copy.

The full release of Academy will most likely be late September / early October, pending manufacturing and customs, but we wanted to go all out for Gen Con and have a shipment available there for players to enjoy and have a sneak peek at what's coming!

The team is very excited about this release.  Academy will be a stand along game that both offers new players a lower price point and less barrier to entry game to jump into the Mage Wars universe, but also offer experienced players new cards, new game play options, and a more portable gameplay option for "Mage Wars battles on the go".

Let us know your thoughts and we look forward to seeing you at Gen Con!

This is exactly what the forums have been asking for. Expansions that come out in a timely matter, and that really make you change how you see (and play) the game. I am really excited to see this get released.

Well there is at least one card with Druids in mind, in Academy.

These are great news. I am really looking forward to academy.

Hope both core sets will be released soon.

Can you give us any info on card distribution? Will it be the same as in recent arena expansions or will it be totally different?

Academy has a slightly different limit on the number of copies of a spell you can have in your spellbook. So, Academy will be giving their playsets based off of that. As we get into the previews for it, I'm sure we'll go into it more.
