What better way to spend a Saturday evening than blowing your friends up, repeatedly?
The latest addition to my game collection, Epic Spell Wars, is a mix-and-match spellcasting game. Players take on the roles of coked-up leprechauns, enraged genies, and princess-mounted unicorns in something that can only be described as a heavy metal pro wrestling cage match. Each player will attempt to form a legal spell from cards in his hand. The spells then go off, inflicting damage on opponents (and sometimes oneself), and sometimes causing other effects. The last wizard standing wins the round, and winning a second round wins the game.
It’s not a complicated game, and could make a good opening act for an evening’s gaming.
