Lucky enough to win in a raffle. Can the other mage wars games be added as expansion? If so does this just increase card content etc?

Academy can be used as an expansion for Arena. But not the other way around.

You can add Academy cards to Arena but you can't add Arena cards to Academy.

That'll be at DragonDaze then Congrats! I was running demos during the event.

Academy expansion (of which two are currently released) add a new Mage, complete with their 40 point default cardset plus a load of cards to expand your collection of cards to build from (and more tokens).

Academy can then be used in the big Arena game (if you so wish), mainly to fill out the lower level spells. Arena cards can not be used in Academy due to being overpowered.

What about the board game? Can that be implemented into academy or vice versa?

As everyone said, Academy can be added into Arena, but not the reverse because it's over-powered

There is only two version;
Academy - quick streamline version (20-30min)
Arena - more strategic with board (75 - 120min)

And a subset of the second version:
Domination - basically Arena, but played on a modular board comprised of tiles that include terrain, and with an additional win condition (you can still kill the other mage, but you could win without killing the other mage if you achieve a specified number of victory points "V'tar"). It's more conducive to multiplayer free-for-alls and team play. Kind of feels a bit like "capture the flag" where you need to acquire and hold objectives defended by NPC's and/or snatch them away from your opponents - or you can choose to ignore the objectives and kill the other mage(s) before they achieve another win condition.

That's Mage Wars Arena: Battleground - Domination.
Battlegrounds is an expansion which changes the style of play, but still uses the Arena rules set.
