Magic s’essaierait-t-il au jeu de plateau ?

0

La news était passée en catimini mais lorsqu’un de mes potes m’a envoyé le lien, ça a réveillé en moi mes envies de jeux de plateau à base de figurines. C’est peut être l’une de mes déceptions d’ados, je n’avais pas dans mon groupe d’amis de joueurs de Warhammer ou autre. Du coup, acheter des figurines, les peindre et ne pas jouer avec, c’est quand même hyper frustrant. J’avais donc laissé ce loisir de coté.

Mais là c’est Magic The gathering qui vient d’annoncer, sans date précise (mais en faite si, voir la FAQ plus bas), l’arrivée de son jeu de plateau. Prévu pour deux à cinq joueurs, on contrôle un Planeswalker et ses armées sur un champ de bataille où il faudra se frayer un chemin jusqu’au Planeswalker adverse afin de l’éliminer.

Si le jeu semble en phase de test/beta pour le moment, quelques photos ont déjà filtré. On y retrouve le principe des cinq couleurs de mana, des armées à peindre ou non et des cartes qui font irrémédiablement écho aux plus célèbres d’entre elles dans l’univers Magic.

Bref une belle surprise, j’ai hâte d’en savoir plus, pas vous ?
