Description Edit | History

Wizard Kings is an exciting fantasy battle game with armies of elves, dwarves, orcs, undead, and three human armies (feudal, barbarian, amazon). Players customize their armies and fight for control of strategic cities and terrain on geomorphic maps. Wizard Kings 2nd edition is a re-release of the sold-out 1st edition.

Wizard Kings can play in as little as one hour or be used as part of a miniatures campaign for months. Victory conditions vary with the many possible scenarios. The new version is multi-player out of the box. A collectible expansion blockset has been released at the same time.

Wizard Kings 2nd edition includes 4 new maps, which are compatible with existing maps from the first edition. There are many new unit types and artwork, although first edition units remain valid for play.

6 Unit Inventory and Trade Tracker
This file includes all the units and allows the user to track units, by army, that they "own", "want in trade" and have "for trade." It includes a few tools, like filters to view one army at a time, and a pivot table that totals the units in each category, by army. Please feel free to make suggestions for improvement. I hope this tool will be useful for anyone interested in tracking their army and/or wants to make trades to help fill it out. Thanks! PS. The file comes populated with sample data so you can see how it works, but just delete it and enter your own.

9 WK Custom Unit Creation Template - Photoshop file
This is a Photoshop file that I use to design custom units. All numbers, titles, symbols and steps are in separate layers so that you can change colors and turn on or off any of the layers to create clean unit stickers with a consistent design. The units in my "Wanted: Lurkers" addition file were created using this file if you'd like to see a sample. Enjoy!

17 WK Battleboard w/ helpful information
This is a battle board for WK designed to simplify the combat phase, including areas to track combat rounds, moon phases and listings of the Chaos Spell, Cleric Rituals, and optional Wizard Spells without cluttering the main field. Based off of KitRock's wonderful Hammer of the Scots battle board. Thanks Robert! Enjoy.

4 Wanted: Lurkers - small addition to WK games
Wanted: Lurkers In these dark days of war there are more dangers about than those posed by invading armies. Beasts and thieves, unaligned with any agenda save their own roam the lands, taking from farmer and soldier alike. A good bit of coin might be made by those brave enough to claim the bounty. Lurkers is a small, flavorful addition to any WK scenario/game. Each player picks a coin and a Lurker tile at random without looking and places them, face down, in a location on their opponent's map. Lurkers start at full strength when revealed and the gold is added to any city when the lurker is defeated. You will need to find / create a few small tokens to act as coins as described in the file when you download it. I used some from an older game I cannibalized. I may revise the file to...
