Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Hijinx at Hell High Releases in 2 Days

High school. Even if it was decades ago, many of us can remember it just like it was yesterday. The social cliques. The classes. The various events like dance and football games. And, of course, the battle wizards. How can one forget the battle wizards? Well, if your school was distinctly lacking in battle wizards, you can still live vicariously through Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Hijinx at Hell High, a new expansion that's coming August 12th.

From the article:

Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of tabletop games, trading cards, and collectibles, today announced the August 12 release of Epic Spell Wars™ of the Battle Wizards: Hijinx at Hell High. The fifth entry in the hugely popular Epic Spell Wars spellcrafting card game series brings all the trademark over-the-top humor and art to the world of high school. In the game, 2-6 players move up and down the Social Status Board, which ranges from the Ultimate Loser to Class President, and utilize the new keyword “Bully” as they try to annihilate their fellow Wizards.

The game looks to continue the growing popularity of the Epic Spell Wars series, which has gained a legion of fans since the first game was featured on TableTop, the web series hosted by Wil Wheaton on Geek & Sundry, a YouTube channel with over 2.12 million subscribers. In addition to the five spellcrafting games, Cryptozoic released Epic Spell Wars™ of the Battle Wizards: ANNIHILAGEDDON Deck-Building Game last year, which will have its own upcoming expansions.

“As we wondered how to set the fifth Epic Spell Wars game in the most horrible, evil, blood-thirstiest place in all of creation, the answer quickly became obvious: high school!” said Cory Jones, the creator of Epic Spell Wars. “The art, card names, and card effects are all inspired directly by high school experiences. As players channel their fury into red-hot death spells, it’s going to depend partly on their Social Status. It all leads to an Epic Spell Wars experience that will let you relive your own traumas while casting spells and having tons of fun!”
