The Joy of Unboxing: Archmage

By March 15, 2019August 28th, 2019Boardgames, Unboxing, Videos

I’m too old for this sort of thing. Just wake me up when the planet’s destroyed.

Let’s peek inside the Collector’s Edition of Archmage by Starling Games!

Occasionally I get involved in the promotion of Kickstarter campaigns for games that I find interesting, and I was happy to be part of the campaign for this one, Archmage. Game Salute asked me to create one of my rules summaries for the game, which they had printed and put in the box as a stretch goal.

I’ve since received my Collector’s Edition copy and played it, and really enjoyed the game, an interesting and attractive mix of worker placement and spell-building with a healthy competitive streak (or perhaps that’s a reflection of my player group and its grudges, or my frustration at being badly beaten!) Here’s a look inside the box. By the way, there’s an expansion on the way, Archmage: Ascendant.

Look out for the Archmage rules summary on this site tomorrow!
