What is Dark Mages?
Dark Mages is a fantasy card game combining dice rolling and RPG in which you play as powerful magicians competing in a magical battle. Using magic items, companions, hexes, scrolls, or spells, you must defeat your enemies on the battlefield. Each battle gives you the opportunity to increase your power and improve your combat skills to deal with enemies that can appear at any moment.
Dark Mages: The Arcane Order (Expansion Pack)
Immerse yourself in an adventure with our first expansion Dark Mages: The Arcane Order, including 60 new playing cards with 3 new categories that will broaden the basic game. You will also find new spells, new skills, special abilities specific to each character, new magic items and more. You will be tested by changing weather conditions, devious traps, and new tenacious enemies that you must defeat by joining forces with the other magicians.
Game Update v1.5
Dark Mages 1.5 is a revised version of the base game. In this version, rounds are more dynamic and fun, each character has now a basic attack (cantrip), character cards are better defined, the visual style is enhanced, and the text has been improved. If you already own the game, this update pack is for you!
During our first experience with Kickstarter, you supported us through your generosity, which has allowed us to create a game that is now played in more than 22 countries.
With The Arcane Order expansion as well as version 1.5 of the basic game, we can bring our project to the next level. We have a good strategy for the coming years, but as we are emerging game designers, we need your help to finance what is to come.
We have known each other for many years, we are web/multimedia developer, entrepreneur and IT manager. We decided to merge our ideas to create this great game called Dark Mages. We thought we could improve it, so we came with version 1,5. We are ready to take it to the next level with our new expansion, Dark Mages: The Arcane Order.
We know that mobile devices and computers actually rule the world, but we do think that friends and family members need to be reunited around a fun game and cherish those moments together.
Do not hesitate to share your experience with us:
" My name is Alex and I am a physician and hard-core gamer. I was at GenCon in 2016 and was strolling through the vendor booths with my 3 friends when we came upon two guys selling a game they created. It was called Dark Mages, the art was beautiful, and something about the game and box drew us four in.
Both Rick and Rick, the creators of the game, explained the game to us in minutes, and we started demoing an open-handed game. Five minutes into the game I knew I was buying it and so did one of my friends. I can't remember playing a game I had this much fun with from just the first time, and it gets better every time. I brought the game home from GenCon and tried it out on my 9 and 12 year old girls and they can't stop playing it with me. It is one of their rewards for good behavior! With a great degree of certainty I can assure you that this game will be one of the top games in your gaming repertoire.
Rick and Rick, were not only incredibly friendly, kind, and creative, but they put out a well thought-out, simple yet robust competitive game that you can't put down. If the base game is as much fun as it is, I can only imagine how phenomenal the expansion and the new improvements will turn out to be. Play test it, try it out just once, and I assure you, you will own the game. "

Risks and challenges
The game production is going well! The biggest risk of the project is the delay in the artwork because there are a lot of illustrations to do and we want the best quality of each illustration. The artists are professionals and working very hard to get this done!
We expecting to get the game done by the date we mentioned. The main goal is to deliver our game to you quickly as possible!
Dark Mages is an easy, fun and simple to play game. Support our project and in return, you will receive a very cool game.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
