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!

1. Magecraft is easy to learn
Only 5 effect symbols appear through out the whole game in Magecraft. You can quickly understand how gems interact with areas under the assistance of your character sheet.
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.
3. Magecraft has high replay value
Everytime you setup Magecraft, you only use 9 out of the 19 advance spells.Similar to most deck building game, your strategy varies in every game, according to the combination of the selected advance spells.
4. We need your help to complete a better Magecraft
With the current game components, we can only support a limited number of playing mode. However, with your supports, we can add additional parts and the boss raid mode could become true!
5. Playtest the game before you get it
We now support an EXE file, an APK file.You can try the game in various ways before you pledge our game!
"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

Hello for those who reach here! My name is Percy and I am the game designer of the game Magecraft. I have been working in App game company as a game designer and producer for 3 years. However, I love board game and I think I can contribute to the community with my ideas.
The first prototype of Magecraft was built 3 years ago, which evolve, simplify, tidy and enhance through out last few years. Early this year, I start to work full time in this project and Magecraft finally become a product that I can proudly present to you. If you are interested in how Magecraft is developed, you can reference to my Blog.
If you want more than 4 copies, please add the following price from the options below to your pledge. You will be asked what you want at the end of the project.
Additional Magecarft after first 4 boxes: +20USD/box
Bags with Magecraft Logo(KS ONLY): +5USD/bag
PNP PDF file for Magecraft: +10 USD
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!
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.
