Welcome to Offland, a realm where thousands of races exist. Surviving in a tight realm is not easy, and conflict happens anywhere and at any time. A mighty mana gem is unearthed every 10 years. It is so powerful that it can grant its wielder the right to rule the realm for the next 10 years. After 10 years, a competition is held in the arena at the center of the realm in order to find the next worthy king of Offland. You, a representative of one of the many races in Offland, shall show your power!

Please note that Magecraft only contains component for a two players game. You will need 2 copies of Magecraft for playing 3/4 players game.

This is a tutorial for the game.

2. Magecraft has a lot of depth

Easy to learn does not imply that the game is simple. You will need to make the proper decisions on balancing between different winning conditions, controlling multiple resources and minimizing luck factors to ensure your victory.

"Coming with a nice set of artwork and 5 different player characters with small special abilities, Magecraft offers a really high entertainment value especially for 2 players. With more players the game will be different since there will be a higher dependence on timing and on spreading damage among the opposing mages, but especially for 2 players the game is highly recommendable." - Frank Schulte-Kulkmann

Risks and challenges

For most Board game projects, there are two core factors that might affect the delivery of the projects.

1. Production delay
This would be a relatively small challenge for Magecraft. As our game designer Percy lives in Hong Kong, he can closely manage the China factory production process and update project if there is any accident issue. However, we already confirm that the printing factory will be available in mid November and hopefully can deliver product before Christmas!

2. Shipment
Shipment would be a relatively large problem as products will be ship from China directly. We are going to mail with postal services and in case of any damage, please let us know and we will deliver you replacement components.
