Mage Knight

Mage Knight is a complex fantasy board game with some deck-building. Although based on the HeroClix-like game of the same name, this is a deep, thought-provoking game that's ranked in the top 10 over at BoardGameGeek. We play mysterious and powerful Mage Knights, sent to a foreign land to help the locals. Or are we there to overthrown the rightful ruler? We'll have to play to find out.

If you're interested in giving it a try, it looks like we have at least two copies of the game ready to run.

    Thanks for teaching the game. I hope everyone caught at least the end of the Seahawks game. Great game (both the Seahawks game and Mage Knight).

    Nicole and Laura, did your group end up winning by clearing the mines?

      No, we didn't clear ours, either. But it was a good learning scenario, I think!

      I made it home just after half time. :)

    Hey Laura and Nicole, We got it wrong, you didn't have to stay in the mine and defeat those monsters. Looking at the rules, you can optionally enter the mine each turn as your action IF YOU WANT TO. Sorry I didn't know that (had to ask the husband).

      I didn't know, either. Usually, once you engage you're stuck, although, to be fair, sorcerer's towers, keeps, etc., push you out into the neighboring hex if you lose a battle. Usually not so with dungeons, though.

    Thanks everyone for coming! Mage Knight is a hard game to simultaneously teach and do well at. But I'm glad that everyone seemed to have a good time.

    Thanks for teaching the game, Phil. I would be interested in playing it again at some point.

    So what happened in the game, did the players win?

    January 19, 2014

    • Matthew

      We had one mine at the end with a frost dragon in it that we couldn't clear out. You/Noah (who took over for you for the last round) ended up with the highest fame, as all those spells you had made you a dragon-killing MACHINE. But if we had won there would have been a final scoring round where points would have been awarded for how many mines each player cleared, apparently.

    That was so much fun! The group is very inviting and nice. I'll be back.

    Sorry for the late notice, my time just freed up. I will bring my copy so everyone can play.

    Just wanted to mention: If anyone needs a great overview of the rules the tutorials on YouTube by Ricky Royal in his "Box of Delights" series are great.

    Seahawks game will start at 3:30. Any possibility of starting this at 12:00 PM?

    1 · January 11, 2014

    • Michelle aka e.

      Ezzelin and I can make noon.

      January 11, 2014

    • Gene L

      It looks like everyone has agreed to noon so I've changed the time.

      January 12, 2014

  • Gene L

    Just a FYI, if the Seahawks win on January 11, they will be playing again on this day, not sure when.

    Looking forward to it and will bring my copy!

    Hi Laura, if your +1 is Phil, then he is listed twice :)

    December 30, 2013

    • Laura Walton A.

      Usually you'd be right about that, but this time I rsvp'd Steve, just in case. (He has the other copy of MK.) When he logs in and checks in, I will revise my entry. :-)
