Ravnica: Inquisition – A social deduction game set in the Magic: The Gathering universe

February 17, 2019 - 6:52pm

WizKids has announced a new social deduction game set on the place of Ravnica in the Magic: The Gathering universe. In Ravnica: Inquisition, players take on the role of a representative of a Ravnican guild that is either loyal to the Gatewatch or an Agent of Bolas.  The Gatewatch loyalists are tasked with discovering who the Agents of Bolas are, while the Agents simply need to survive in order to further the schemes of Nicol Bolas.  During the game, the players will elect leaders for each of the 5 colors. Each color leader has a special power they can use to further their goals, so it is important to gain those positions and keep the opposition from gaining control.  Once all the color leaders have been elected, a vote is held to eliminate 1 player. Once the dust has settled, players will reveal their roles, and if the Agents of Bolas were eliminated, the Gatewatch wins!

Ravnica: Inquisition plays 5-10 players, ages 14+, in 15-30 minutes.  Contents includes 10 role cards, 10 guild cards, 5 color leader cards, 5 targeting cards, ablaze marker, ultimate price marker, notepad, pencil, and a rulebook. Look for Ravnica: Inquisition at your friendly local game store in June 2019.
