[Wiz-War Tournament] Game 2 - This war is over (stever777 WINS)

Game 2

Welcome to the maze.
The Game has started. Get your counter-spell orders in now.

READ. THE. RULES.

And the FAQ.

Some changes to the above to make it playable over a forum
Counter-Spells - Because no one wants to have to wait for everyone to say whether or not they will counter any given spell by another player, all players will instead queue up their counter/reaction spells with conditions. For example, if I had a Full Shield (Counter any spell targeting me) in my hand I could queue it up by saying "Cast only if someone targets me with an attack that does damage" or "Cast if someone targets me with any spell" or "Cast if someone targets me with [specific spell]". These conditions can be as specific, multi-tiered, and creative as you want them to be. These should be PM'd to me once you get your starting hand/draw new cards and can be changed whenever and as often as you like. If you don't set anything up for your counter-spells, they just simply won't get played when its not your turn.

Turns - Turns will also be PM'd to me. You will have 24 hours after the previous player turn is posted for you to PM me your turn (this may change based on various factors or majority player demand). Your PM will contain the exact movement and timing of all the castings of your spells. Because there are counter-spells, however, if something gets countered in the middle of your turn, then it gets countered and your turn will continue on. In order to account for this, you can put conditionals in your turn order. For example, "Move down, Cast Lightning Bolt targeting Red Wizard. If lightning bolt is countered, then transform into Gnome and move Up, Up. If lightning bolt is not countered, then cast Fire Wall on right side of A-4 and move Up, Up." These can be as complicated or as simple as you want/need them to be.

Communication - All communication should be done in this thread. No PMs. Absolutely no sharing direct information about your cards.

READ. THE. RULES.
If you need clarification on any rules or cards, send me a PM.

    Does the lightning mean anything? I notice only blue and red have it.

  • ObiFettObiFett Use the Force As You WishRegistered User regular
    The boards are double sided and the lightning is how you differentiate between which side is the old version and the new version of the board. Purely cosmetic.

    Note: as we discovered in game 1, your board is missing its portals. Imagine there is a set of portals connecting A2 with J7 and another connecting A7 with J2. They will magically appear sometime soon.

    This map should now be updated with portals. If you don't see it, just refresh the page.

    re-reading the rules it seems like you're supposed to use the same side for all four sectors.

    Too late. :-) Honestly I can't see it making that much of a difference balance-wise and this way we get very different boards across all games.

    Teleportation sickness did a number on the four wizards brought in to the maze. After recovering, each wizard takes a moment to check out their surroundings before making any movements.

    Finally, Tayrun makes a move. Tayrun summons a Powerstone in one hand, to give more energy for future spells, and the mighty Wizardblade in the other hand. Time to do some damage. Tayrun boosts and heads towards the nearest non-red area seen. With an enemy treasure conveniently around the corner, Tayrun doesn't hesitate and picks up the green treasure.

    Held items and non-map changing maintained spells are listed in the player status list. Stats for those two are in particular are listed under Tayrun's name in the player status.

    Dropped items and map changing spells are listed in that box next to the map.

    stever777 senses the massive surge of creation energy head north. "Might as well check out what was left behind", he thinks as creates a Spellstone, hoping for inspiration at some point. He decides to boost and heads towards the energy source's original location. Walls, walls and more walls are all he comes across. Sick of walls, stever777 concentrates and makes himself immaterial long enough to pass through one wall. And jackpot! stever777 finds and picks up a Red Treasure.

    Bottom of page 10 says squares can be diagnally adjacent. Which is weird because thats not how I learned it in other games.

  • DarianDarian Registered User regular
    That's a misprint.
    http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/767353/adjacency
    This is, unfortunately, a rules-editing error on my part. Diagonal is NEVER adjacent. This will be in the FFG FAQ on the next rev (very soon).

  • DarianDarian Registered User regular
    You do have LOS to that door, yes. (Checked by a line drawn from the dot in your location to the center of the door; that line doesn't intersect with a wall or column.)

  • BedlamBedlam Registered User regular
    You'd be adjacent if you moved one space down, then.

    SHOULD HAVE GONE WITH MY GUTS!

    jdarksun chooses flight and boosts. He springs to the door and locks it. With magic. Then jdarksun runs through the nearby portal hoping to escape this crazy maze. He is greeted with only more of the same stone floor and walls, except this time everything is giving off a feint blue hue. Exploring further reveals a blue treasure that he picks up.

    He got three, check out what he is holding:

    Spellstone - Magic Stone : While carrying this item, you may draw 1 extra card each turn, although you still may not exceed your maximum hand size. If you suffer any fire damage, all magic stones you are carrying are destroyed.

    Its all in what you do with them. ;-)

    After looking at your cards, you have some pretty good ones. They just will have to be used creatively.

    And the game is far from over.

    stever777 boosts and heads back to his zone only to hear the sounds of an intruder on the other side of a wall. In his zone! How dare he/she/it! He creates a door, summons a large rock and opens the door just enough to throw the rock at the intruder. The Green Wizard barely got turned around before the Large Rock hit him square in the jaw and fell to the floor. "Get off my lawn!", stever777 yells as he shuts the door.
