Not the 2011 version (2013 from pegasus).
Small Game with bluffing, not complex, awesome artwork.
played it 3 times, horrible with 2, better with more.
give it 6/10, can be used as a small filler.

Played it 2 times.
Good Chvatil-Game but i think its not his best.
Activate Stones to summon creatures is very cool! But it felt in the second play like a puzzler not a battle. Very good is, that you can play the game in various ways. for me it felt unfinished, it felt like you could buy more races to pay with or shuffle with future expansions.
i give it a 8/10

Heard from that Game 2 days before Spiel13 was.
Its so funny! Played it 3 Times with 2 and 4 players.
One of the best Games of Spiel13 (dont compare it with heavy games).
With 2 the games feel more tactical, with 4 its little chaotic.
The Components are sweet and the humour is superb.
after i buyed it, i have fear that it would be a childreen-game, but it makes fun with adults and they love it.
give it a 8/10

I stand by the publisher and i looked at a mage-wars clone (dont know the name) that feels totally awesome. i dont save enough money for the clone but i want a darker game so i bought that. dont played it yet, i dont think it would be totally awesome but hope its good enough for funny hours.
