On Friday four of The Delvers met to play the board game Wiz-War by Fantasy Flight Games. This is part board game, part card game and comes with high quality card tokens and a set of nicely sculpted plastic miniature playing pieces representing the Wizards. The aim of the game is to steal the enemy wizards treasure or, better still, kill them. Either action will earn the victor one victory point and overall victory is achieved when a Wizard reaches 2 points.

Each game lasted about an hour and was easy to learn and master. The game can be played by two to four players against each other or as 'teams' of two per side. The rules provide loads of scope for backstabbing, deception, traps, murder and mayhem, making it fun, fast paced and a good laugh too. We certainly enjoyed it and I expect this game will get played at future Delvers game nights.
