About this project

 

A long-lost temple fort of Artheastam, the Kingdom of Light — or is it rather a slaughterhouse? Several adventurers have been brave enough to attempt to discover the secret of the temple, yet none returned to tell the tale. What could this secret be? Why do so many go about risking their lives? Are they aware of what lies ahead of them? The Kingdom of Artheastam has come to the decision to send its three most excellent warriors to face the peril. This will surely not be watched from the sideline by either the offspring of darkness or the Mountaindeep or by the dispersed spacebenders. The future of their world is at stake, and they want to get hold of their legacy. In Magitics, players control a team of heroes that must confront the other heroes in a variable arena. Their aim is to be victorious and gain a crystal with magical powers hidden by Sethemet, the space-time magician.

Magitics is a tactical fighting board game for 2-4 players set in a mystical and magical world. In this conflict, all players control a group of heroes. During the battles, the heroes gain spells, magic items and valuable loot to strengthen them. The players' aim is to overpower their opponents in combat by making tactical decisions, or to outright defeat them.

 

Action point driven mechanism: Players have a specific amount of action points to spend for a hero in each turn. Manage action points and combine your skills to ensure success. Plan ahead, as multiple activations of the same action will cost you more.

Hero customization: Power up your heroes by gaining items, loot and cards. Each hero can carry 3 magic stones (modify basic characteristics), 3 items (new abilities) and unlimited amount of single use loot. Each item can hold 1 additional magic stone, these give you additional speed, power, knowledge or protection. Items can also be upgraded for enhanced effects.

 Important: The final look of the materials and art are subject to change.

Shipping is a great challenge as always. The product should arrive on time, in mint condition and without exorbitant shipping costs. We decided to use Happyshops and Funagain for their fulfillment services. The shipping cost will be added automatically to your pledge amount based on your location (FREE to US and Zone 1). Our campaign is EU and US friendly, it is guaranteed that you will not be charged with any additional fees on your pledge amount. We are shipping from within these regions. For other regions in some cases you may expect additional customs charges depending on your local regulations, but we and our experienced fulfillment partners will make sure to keep these fees as low as possible. We set the estimated delivery to October 2017.

FREE Essen pickup (26th - 29th of October, 2017): As in previous years, we will have a booth again this year during the Essen Spiel. We invite you to come to our booth and pick up your games personally. For the Essen pickups the ordered game quantity is unlimited. Please use the ESSEN PICKUP pledge levels, if you would like to get your games in Essen.

The summarized shipping prices:

Maximum 6 copies allowed per order.

In order to offer the best possible deal, there is also a chance to add more games to you pledge. Buy more and lower your cost per game! For your pledge you get your second and further copies with no additional shipping cost.

Risks and challenges

We are aware that producing a game is a great challenge. This is our second crowdfunding project on kickstarter, following the success of our first project, Ave Roma, which met the target in a bit over a day and closed on almost 400% funding. All extra copies of Ave Roma sold out in one day at Essen 2016 and it’s currently undergoing its second printing due to the huge demand. A few lessons were learned from that campaign, we are sure we have an even better process for the packaging and delivery of our games worldwide.

The idea of Magitics was born 6 years ago and since then, the development and play testing took hundreds of hours. The game had many changes over time, but during the campaign all the graphics, rules and minor fixes will be finalized and applied. Our new main manufacturing partner is located in Poland, they have plenty of experience with several large publishers already. We are certain that we will have high quality components produced. As in our previous campaign, shortly after the campaign ends, the game will be in production. The fullfillment will be done through Happyshops and Funagain. For the freight shipping we will use our usual partner Kuehne + Nagel. When the production is done we will send out the games to our fulfillment partners immediately.

We want to keep you updated with all the relevant information about the progress of the project. We are confident to give you the best possible product and support. :)
