NECA/WizKids Announces the re-launch of the Mage Knight ™ Property

(WizKids to release Mage Knight Board Game by Vlaada Chvátil)

HILLSIDE, NJ – October 21, 2010 NECA/WizKids, the leader in collectible gaming, is proud to announce the re-launch of the Mage Knight property. In 2000, Mage Knight defined miniatures gaming by combining a rich back-story, detailed pre-painted miniatures and revolutionary game play. Mage Knight will honor that spirit of innovation within the property by expanding it across several platforms.

The initial Mage Knight offering for release will be a board game designed by Vlaada Chvátil, designer of the acclaimed games: Dungeon Lords, Through the Ages and Galaxy Trucker.

“For me, Mage Knights combine the greatest fantasy archetypes – honor and wisdom, strength and magic. I want to bring to life a Mage Knight as an individual who steers the wheels of history and gives birth to legends. My hope is to capture that essence in a new and engaging way for fantasy fans around the world” says Chvátil.

WizKids President Lax Chandra says “Mage Knight launched our company and created a new industry (CMG) of gaming. Ten years later, we have come full circle. We have wanted to work with Vlaada for a long time and we are thrilled with his vision to make this a new experience while still carrying forward the world that so many people fell in love with.”

In addition to the first boxed set, WizKids/NECA plans several brand extensions set in the Mage Knight universe, including a new take on deck building games and role-playing games.

Ha! I just posted the same thing over in the Black Mongoose Tavern. Very Happy

Vlaada Chvátil has a great background in board games, but what this press release seems to be describing doesn't sound that much like the original Mage Knight...

Yeah i was thinking the exact same thing. With any luck it'll be cool, and hopefully will respawn the MKD series.

I'd love to see that happen, but I think the likelihood of MKD coming back in a format close enough to the existing stuff that they could be used together is even slimmer than Pirates coming back in the same form.

At least with MKD, what we already have feels "complete" - they'd stopped adding to it long before MK died out, so there are no unproduced sets still floating around out there.


My guess is that it'll be a fully self-contained boardgame using the MK storylines and maybe a few familiar names/faces. It will use clix-based figures, but won't be directly compatible with the old figures without massive stat modifications. They'll likely dump the randomly-assorted booster format, so any "expansions" will be non-blind sets of single-faction armies or assorted figures with some common theme tying them together.
