Arcane Wonders announces a new addition to their successful Mage Wars family, Mage Wars Academy.  As a standalone game system, this new version of Mage Wars will be fully compatible with all other members of the Mage Wars game family.

Academy is designed with both new and existing players in mind.  New players will find it the perfect “jumping on point” to the rich and vibrant Mage Wars® universe.  Experienced players will be excited to find new spells that are all compatible with Mage Wars® Arena, offering them new options in their battles.  In addition, both player types will find Academy fast paced, strategic, and portable to take their duels wherever they want!
