WizKids


Fungeon Party Now Available

It's a little bit dungeon delve. It's a little bit dexterity game. It's a little bit party game. It's a little bit country. It's a little bit rock-and-roll. Fungeon Party is the new game from WizKids where players take on the role of traditional dungeon-delving characters, but don't necessarily go about searching that dungeon in the most traditional ways. Bounce dice around a box, stack them, try and knock over meeples, and more.

WizKids Announces D&D Icons of the Realms: Waterdeep Dragon Heist

When playing an RPG, I know that I like to have figures that represent what we're fighting and for our characters out on the table. Sure, you could just throw anything out there and call it good, but if we're fighting dudes in armor with mauls, I want minis of dudes in armor with mauls. If we're fighting ghosts, I want minis of ghosts. And so forth and so on. Sometimes it can be hard to find just the mini you want, so having more is always helpful. Thankfully, there's always new sets of figures coming out, such as D&D Icons of the Realms: Waterdeep Dragon Heist from WizKids.

WizKids Announces Seal Team Flix

While Gaia's Hope might seem like just a bunch of tree-hugging hippies, they're really an eco-terrorist organization looking to solve things their way. They've gotta be dealt with, and the SEALS are just the team to do it. But the operations aren't going to be easy. SEAL Team Flix is a new dexterity-based cooperative game coming from WizKids. Travel through different terrain and eliminate your targets with surgical precision... or just flick your piece off into no-man's land. Whatever works for you.

WizKids Announces Spy Tricks Card Game

Seems WizKids is in that cycle where they announce a bunch of new games they're working on. One such is Spy Tricks. It's a new trick-taking game where you play as spies (ooooh, now I get the name). Players will be trying to play the highest and lowest cards during a trick, with those players being able to make a guess as to what the secret document is. Get it right and get a point. The player with the most points at the end is the winner.

WizKids Announces Fungeon Party

What happens when you combine a dungeon-crawling game with a party game and a dexterity game? You get Fungeon Party. It's a new game coming from WizKids wherein players take on the role of traditional dungeon-crawl classes, like wizard and barbarian, and head into a dungeon where their skills will be put to the test in unconventional ways. How many dice can you stack on your head? Can you bounce dice into a box lid? And how fast can you do it? Because this is a timed adventure. That's what you'll have to find out.

WizKids Announces Pathfinder Battles: Jungle of Despair Set

I just recently got into a new RPG group. The game takes place in a whole new world I've never played in before, with players I've never gamed with before. So it'll be interesting to see how everything works out. The DM does use a gridded map for when we play, and brings out the minis for us to fight against. But with a game like that, it's always tough to find just the right mini. Well, that's where the plastic sets come in. In this case, WizKids has announced a new one. It's Pathfinder Battles: Jungle of Despair.

WizKids has announced that they're coming out with a new version of the Mage Knight Board Game. This is the Ultimate Edition and includes not just the base game, but the three expansions that were released as well.

WizKids Announces Star Trek: Galactic Enterprises

Buying, selling, wheeling, dealing. Buy low. Sell high. When do you partner up and when do you go it alone? You gotta know when to hold 'em. You gotta know when to fold 'em.
I went to the stock market and did a business.
And business is the order of the day if you're Ferengi. In Star Trek: Galactic Enterprises, players take on the role of Ferengi traders, looking to make a profit on Deep Space 9. It's a new game coming from WizKids.

WizKids Announces Curio: The Lost Temple

A staple of the tropes in ancient tombs is the requirement to solve intricate puzzles in order to proceed forward. Theoretically, this meant that only true followers of those that built the structure would know how to get through them (oftentimes with deadly results for those that failed). There's often a time element involved. You must think fast and accurately, or all is lost. Such is the case in Curio: The Lost Temple, a new real-time puzzle game coming from WizKids.

WizKids Announces Endless Pass Card Game

WizKids seems to be in that pattern again of announcing several new games in rapid succession (nothing wrong with that, mind you). In this case, it's Endless Pass: A Viking Saga. Players take on the role of mighty vikings, searching the Pass as they look to defeat the Endless, a never-ending (ooooh, that explains the name...) group of monsters. But, being vikings, they're also looking for glory! As such, they'll compete against one-another as well. Whose story will be told throughout all time? That's for you to decide.
