EARN THE TITLE OF MAGE!
Learn Mage Wars as you and your fellow apprentices
battle to the death in this customizable strategy game of dueling
mages. The event will use the Mage Wars Core Set with
no expansions and consist of four total rounds.
Round 1: APPRENTICESHIP
This is a 4-heat round with players using the Apprentice Mode
with the pre-built spellbooks from the Core Set. These will be
available on the Arcane Wonders tournament site (http://www.arcanewonders.com/news/tournaments)
for players who don't have the game yet. Mage Ability Cards will
not be used and the Arena size is reduced in half for the first
round. Players can enter in any or all heats of Round 1, but
must play a different Mage in each of the heats they enter. The
top scoring eight players after Round 1 will Graduate to Full
Mage status and advance to Round 2 for single elimination play.
Method of Advancement to Graduation Round 2
Tournament Points (TP) awarded for each heat using the highest
of the following: Kill Opponent=5TP, Highest Remaining Health
(Life minus Damage)=3TP, Lowest Remaining Health-1TP, Mage Death=0TP.
Tie-breakers in priority order: Highest Total TPs for Wins, Highest
Total TPs of Opponents Played, High Roll of D12 Die. Players
will be ranked by total points scored during Round 1 with the
top eight graduating to Round 2.
GRADUATION: ROUND 2
In Round 2 players are given an additional hour to select one
specific Mage and upgrade the apprentice spellbook of that mage
with additional spells from the Core Set up to the Spellpoint
limit of the Mage selected (120). The selected Mage and Spellbook
will be used by that player for the rest of the Tournament Rounds.
These matches will also use the Mage Ability Card and the full
arena. Players will be coached on the Spellbook design rules
during the first hour of the round as needed to prepare their
mage for the battles to come.
After Round 1 all players will advance in a single elimination
format using the Tournament Point system to determine the winner
of each match.
Arcane Wonders will provide promo
cards for entrants, promo packs for those who advance, and a
Mage Wars poster for finalists.
