Greetings WizKids Games Supporters!

This fall, WizKids Games returns to Essen Spiel in Germany to celebrate the debut release of Trains and Stations, The Hobbit: Journey to the Lonely Mountain strategy game, and the Mage Knight – The Board Game: Krang Character Expansion!

  • Trains and Stations, designed by Eric M. Lang, is a light strategy dice-game wherein players construct railways and industry buildings to score victory points as they expand their railway empire!
  • The Hobbit: Journey to the Lonely Mountain strategy game, also designed by Eric M. Lang, places players in the roles of Bilbo Baggins, Gollum, the Goblin King, and Azog as they each compete to achieve different objectives during the quest to reach Middle-earth’s Lonely Mountain.
  • Mage Knight – The Board Game: Krang Character Expansion, designed by Vlaada Chvátil, adds a new playable character to the award-winning epic fantasy board game series.  The Orc Chaos Shaman, Krang, is sure to delight new and established fans of the Mage Knight Board Game series!

Essen Spiel 2013 will be the first opportunity the public has to purchase these three incredible strategy game offerings.  Also available for sale will be the 2013 DC HeroClix: Trinity of Sin and the Marvel HeroClix: Shuma Gorath exclusives in limited quantities.  Be sure to come to Essen Spiel Hall 1, Booth #F117 to get your copies at the show!
