WotC Announces 5 Player Starter Box for Magic: The GatheringAugust 27, 2018
Wizards of the Coast has announced some new goodies coming out for folks who are new to Magic: The Gathering, or just like to collect one of everything for their favorite card game. In addition to a new holiday gift pack, they’ve announced the new 2-5 player starter box they’re calling Magic Game Night:
MAGIC GAME NIGHT
Imagine this scenario: a group of friends, maybe a monthly board game group, stop in looking for something new to try out—something they can all pick out, learn, and enjoy together. It happens all the time, but rarely are store owners able to hand them something Magic related. Which is a shame, because Magic is awesome.
Magic Game Night is for those gamers. It’s an out-of-the-box introductory multiplayer Magicexperience in a way similar to Planeswalker Decks. But for multiplayer.
Magic Game Night contains five preconstructed decks—one of each color—plus all the accessories you’ll need to play the decks: spindown life counters, life counter platforms, +1/+1 counters, and five reference cards.
Releasing November 16, Magic Game Night will be available in local game and mass market stores around the world. The MSRP is $39.99 (applies only to the United States and Canada).
The article goes into depth with card lists for each of their decks, named after the colors of mana in the game: White, Blue, Green, Black, and… Mountain?
