Enter a World of Witches and Demons in Approaching Dawn: The Witching Hour – Coming Soon
August 3, 2017


Hillside, NJ – August 3, 2017 –WizKids is pleased to announce the upcoming release Approaching Dawn: The Witching Hour, designed by Ken Shannon for 3 – 6 players.  In a world where Witches cast spells and Demons exist in the darkness, will you be able to banish the evil?

In this cooperative new board game, players are members of a coven who are blood bound – what one witch does affects another member of the coven. Work together to use your magic to bind and banish the demons, imps, fey, possessed animals, and warlocks that are entering the world.Each witch starts with different abilities and their own spell deck, but not all spells are cast the same. Each card can be played as Black Magic or White Magic. Black Magic is powerful and can help you but will corrupt the other members of your coven. White Magic can be used to heal your own corruption or assist your allies.Throughout the game, witches can gain corruption to learn new spells, get familiars, and collect artifacts. How they choose to use these new cards each Hour will determine the success of each scene (mission).

In Approaching Dawn: The Witching Hour each scene determines the goal of the game. If the scenes are played in order, they form a story arc, but players can play any scene in any order.

Approaching Dawn: The Witching Hour will be available as an early release at Gen Con and will be available in stores in September.

Pre-order Approaching Dawn: The Witching Hour from your Friendly Local Games Store for $59.99 today!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
