The pre-ordered games from GenCon will be shipped via UPS.

Just a heads up, I moved this to the rules forum. Some of our mods get auto-alerts whenever someone posts in their specific sub-forum of expertise, posting in the right forum gets you much much quicker responses!

Looking into this right now and will get back to you!

We're working hard to implement alternate shipping methods on the store so that international shipping won't be so difficult.

One way you can help is to request from your local retailer that they pre-order through their major distributor. If their distributor isn't carrying the game, they should definitely contact us!

General Discussion / Re: Card sorting.
« on: August 23, 2012, 02:29:42 PM »
I sort by spell type first, and then alphabetically after that.

Depending on how many cards you end up with in your set, maybe sorting by school first and then by type would be better.

We definitely won't be doing any live video footage, so be aware of that :-)

I hadn't really been planning to blog live from Gencon, I generally try and update the Facebook feed at least once a day, and then try and give a recap at night.

If there's some substantial interest from you guys, I'll get Patrick to commit some time to live blogging, what does everyone think?

Strategy and Tactics / Re: Favorite way to deal with Beastmaster
« on: August 08, 2012, 11:51:52 AM »
Another way to deal with him is to summon one huge creature. Someone that when buffed up can do 6-7 damage a turn. The beastmaster's creatures when swarmed are generally pretty weak. So you send your giant creature to attack (and nearly destroy) one of them per turn. While your Beastmaster is spending all his mana trying to keep the rush up, you're killing them as fast as they are summoned. Generally this means you'll be able to get the mana advantage. The thing with the swarm is: if you stop summoning, you're dead.

Throw in some tangle vines to stop his creatures, or turn them to stone, and now his army isn't going anywhere. I personally prefer 1 giant creature to 4 weak ones.

Spellbook Design and Construction / Re: List of Common Spells Needed
« on: August 08, 2012, 11:47:38 AM »
Marked for Death - Ench. makes all attacks against a target +1 dice
Bear Strength - Gives target +1 melee
Ghoul Rot - Target takes 1 direct damage every upkeep phase

I play with these constantly, no matter what spellbook I run. Ghoul Rot is crazy good on a mage, Marked for Death as well. It's basically like playing Bear Strength on every creature that chooses to attack the mage, so there's a lot of bang for your buck.

General Discussion / Meet the Mods
« on: August 07, 2012, 01:55:03 PM »
Hey there all you Mage Warriors,

Welcome to the forums and thanks for helping us build such an awesome and active community.

In this thread we'll have various moderators introduce themselves and let you know what they do for MW, and what kinds of questions they'll be good at answering. As time goes on we'll update this thread with any new information in terms of who is modding what thread, etc.

For now though:

I'm Sean, I'm the Director of Operations over at Arcane Wonders - I came on board about two years ago and instantly loved the game. I'll probably be answering more questions pertaining to the logistics of MW as a product (ship dates, events, planned expansions, marketing, etc.), but I hope to also answer some questions about story, art and design as well while I'm here. I'll try to be as transparent a resource as possible.

Other than that, I love gaming and even (shameless plug), co-created a game "Two Rooms and a Boom" that premiered over at ProtoSpiel 2012 and will be published sometime in the next year.

And with that, MageMods- sound off!

Edit: Oh, I run a Beastmaster Unicorn Power spellbook, so bring it on noobs ;-P

General Discussion / Re: Spell books for sale?
« on: August 07, 2012, 01:42:17 PM »
We'll definitely have some third-party spell books for sale at Gencon. They won't have the custom Mage Wars art, but they should help you start building more custom spell books!
