Magic: The Gathering is a game that, I'd be fair to say, that most of us have played. I know it was the game that I began with. I.E. - it was my "Gateway drug" to gaming. Back then, Snow-Covered Land didn't do anything special. Oh Ice Age, such an interesting set.
But anyway, enough of my trip down memory lane. Arena of the Planeswalkers, the board game based on Magic: The Gathering, is now available.
Arena of the Planeswalkers takes the feel of Magic and gives it some new dimensions... literally. Instead of the linear "attack at your opponent," you've now got a hex board that you can use to outmaneuver and out-flank your opponent. And it's controlling the board that makes all the difference. And going into the 3rd dimension, the game comes with miniatures that represent your Planeswalker and the various beasts and allies that they summon onto the board.
