Description Edit | History

From the back of the book

WIZARD... the basic magical combat system from THE FANTASY TRIP. Test your skill and imagination as you create real and illusionary beings and send them against your foe -- or attack directly with a bolt of lightning! Successful wizards gain skill and power... losers die.
WIZARD may be combined with other games and components from THE FANTASY TRIP such as MELEE (basic combat). Can you defeat swords with spells? Find out... on THE FANTASY TRIP.
Introductory level for two or more players. Includes rules booklet, play counters, map and die.
