What an amazing experience! Origins 2012 was simply a blast! Check out this interview creator, Bryan Pope, did with our friends over at Board Game Geek!
The Mage Wars team worked tirelessly to conduct a total of 500+ demos, giving away 700+ t-shirts and caps. We also took the opportunity to share a t-shirt and cap with Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day. The Mage Wars phenomenon went viral thanks in part to interviews with Board Game Geek, Play Unplugged, and Gamer Goggles.
After the exhibit hall closed, the Mage Wars team continued to entice players into the arena offering opportunities to participate in 16 player tournaments on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night. Players were given a random mage from the pool of Beastmaster, Priestess, Warlock, and Wizard. Most nights, players competed in a single-elimination contest for the grand prize of a canvas print of Mage Wars art.
The Origins 2012 experience was a very positive one for the Mage Wars team. We had the opportunity to add more people to our family, as well as, our fanbase. Thank you GAMA led by John Ward for putting on such a great show, and especially our fans who continue to make Mage Wars the best game in the business.
