Incantris is a board game of magical combat for 1-4 players where you control a team of three wizards, each with unique spells and abilities. Incantris is a fast-paced and thought-provoking game that pairs strategy with a beautiful gaming environment.

  • Features 25 different spells and abilities ensuring that each game of Incantris will be a unique experience
  • Uses a modular board and 3D terrain to create a different battlefield for every game
  • Depicts six types of wizards with 12 detailed miniatures
  • Engages players with an exciting and intuitive spell casting system
  • The balanced and asymmetric teams challenge you to utilize your strengths while exploiting your opponents' weaknesses

"What separates Incantris from the rest of the many, many miniatures games available today is its ease of play and accessibility that does not reduce the game’s strategic and tactical depth." - Father Geek

The Wizard Design Kit gives you full control over your Incantris team for a more advanced experience.

  • 12 additional wizard miniatures, which gives you each wizard type in all 4 colors (blue, red, purple, grey)
  • Try different combinations of wizards to find your most lethal team.
  • Customize your wizards by choosing which spells to equip them with.
The spell card deck is divided into the three spell powers, Astral, Elemental, and Spiritual.

In addition to the goal above, we had a social media challenge to share this Incantris Kickstarter announcement post 100 times. Now, Incantris will come with a solo version for single player battles!

The modular board lets you create a variety of arenas. In one scenario, the shifting arena brings even more depth to the game.

"It feels well play tested...There's a lot of variation to it, so it's going to have a lot of replay value" - Board Game Closet in their video preview:

"Gameplay is fast, spells are satisfying, and between the modular board and different scenarios there’s a lot of replayability here." - Purple Pawn's Preview of Incantris.

Everyone had a great time playing Incantris in the First Exposure Hall at Gen Con. It was awesome to share the game with such enthusiastic gamers.

A very special "thank you" goes out to all of the many playtesters who helped to make Incantris what it is today. We've set up an Incantris page on Board Game Geek for everyone to enjoy right here.

All promo packs will feature four crystal altars. The altars can be used in particular game scenarios to hold the players' crystals, and they can also serve as obstacles that obstruct movement without blocking line of sight.

Risks and challenges

We couldn't be more excited to return to game design and bring Incantris to the gaming community. It's a privilege to be entrusted by so many people to bring this project to life, so we will work hard to make sure it is as smooth as can be. Each Kickstarter project that we complete brings many valuable lessons learned. After launching our first board game, War of Kings, and the entire TerraTiles line we feel very confident in our ability to deliver a quality game to you.
We have allotted time for final art and rulebook preparation at the conclusion of the campaign, and then we will roll right into production. Miniatures are always a challenge, so we have already completed the sculpts and have been working hand in hand with our manufacturer to ensure production will proceed smoothly. Strong relationships with our international fulfillment partners have been incredibly important and give us great confidence in our ability to deliver your rewards to you in a safe and economical manner.
With our experience, we also know that unexpected issues can arise. Final preparation that can only occur after the Kickstarter campaign could take longer than expected due to unforeseen circumstances. When the product is inspected for quality control, a flaw could be found and a part may have to be remade. We will not sacrifice quality for any reason, even if it pushes the schedule back!
When you support Incantris, we promise to keep you up to date about its progress from the campaign’s close all the way to when the boxes are shipped. As you can see from our previous campaigns, we regularly post updates. It is our responsibility to let you know what we know, when we know it!
