Take Matters Into Your Own Hands in Maiden’s Quest —Available Now!
August 29, 2018

Hillside, NJ – August 29, 2018 – WizKids is thrilled to announce that Maiden’s Quest, its new hand-based card game, is now available in North American game stores!

In this fun and easy game designed by Ken Shannon and a primarily female creative/playtesting team, a fair maiden, tired of waiting for her knight in shining armor, decides to take matters into her own hands and rescue herself from her tower. Players will become 1 of 8 different maidens, leading them through a tower, battling monsters and collecting supplies in order to ultimately take on and defeat 1 of 10 captors. The game features an innovative spin-and-flip mechanic which allows cards to represent up to four different obstacles or items.
Additionally, the game can be played entirely in the hand, as cards are cycled to the back of the deck throughout play. This enables players to play anytime, anywhere, and, since each encounter resolves separately, the game can be stowed away at any time to be picked up again later. The game can be played solo, co-op, or even competitively. There is a Serendipity mode where you use your deck to help someone else and as a reward for doing that, sign special cards so that when you get enough signatures, the cards gain an ability that can be added to your deck. The possibilities are endless!
Take matters into your own hands and pick up Maiden’s Quest, available at your Friendly Local Game Store or online 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.
