WizKids Reveals Upcoming Magic: The Gathering Board Game and Token Miniatures
New Releases Featured at GAMA Trade Show

Hillside, NJ – March 12, 2018 – WizKids is excited to announce an upcoming board game as well as a series of miniatures based in the world of Magic: The Gathering, both set to release later this year.

In Magic: The Gathering: Heroes of Dominaria Board Game, players take on the role of a powerful Hero as they travel to the lands of Dominaria. As the player explores the ancient lands, they will need to build sites, rediscover lost artifacts, and confront the sinister Cabal in order to gain the resources needed to save the multiverse before rival Heroes do.

In this Euro game designed for 2 to 4 players, explore Magic’s most iconic plane and experience the trials and tribulations of being a heroic force on Dominaria. Visit storied locations such as Llanowar, Urborg, and Keld. Draw mana from the world to power abilities and recruit heroes to aid in quests. Discover powerful artifacts and create leylines to draw even more mana from distant lands. Build sites to increase your bond with a location. The land of Dominaria is filled with adventure and excitement! In true Eurogame fashion, use strategy to score the most victory points and emerge victorious.

Magic: The Gathering: Heroes of Dominaria Board Game will be available in two versions: Standard and Premium. Both versions include pawns, but the premium will also include 4 prepainted miniatures of iconic Magic: The Gathering Heroes!

A brand-new series of token creatures comes to life in Wizkids’ newest miniatures release, Magic: The Gathering Creature Forge: Overwhelming Swarm. Bring a new dimension of life to your battleground with these token figures that are sculpted in scale with WizKids’ D&D minis line.

The inaugural set will feature 28 tokens spanning well known creature types from Magic’s 25-year history. Discover never-before-seen three-dimensional representations of some of your favorites, like Angels, Soldiers, Goblins, Zombies, Bears, Dragons, Dinosaurs, and so much more!

Each token will come with a base that represents one of the five iconic colors that make up the foundation of Magic’s mana system. Mainstays like artifacts and multicolored creatures can also be found in the set, each with its own unique corresponding colored base. Game stats are also shown on the base, making these tokens perfect for both play and display.

Magic: The Gathering Creature Forge: Overwhelming Swarm set is expected to hit store shelves in July 2018, while Magic: The Gathering: Heroes of Dominaria Board Game Standard & Premium Editions are slated for an August 2018 release!

If you want an early sneak peek at either of them, be sure to stop by the WizKids Booth #315 at the GAMA Trade Show in Reno, Nevada!

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, 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.
