Tried out the new version of Wiz-War and realized that the classic version was much more fun for several reasons.
1) The new version ends too quickly for any one of pulling off hilarious moves. You only need 2 points to win.
2) The wizards die too easily.
I can agree with both of those. I only played the new game once.
There were 4 of us. One of the players went in a grabbed a treasure got in a brief scuffle with another wizard before fleeing back to his home board. Then I stepped in, killed him and took the treasure back to my home. 2 points, game over.
It seemed like the game was just about to get interesting and it was over. In part, I can see why they do this, dead players don't have long to wait before the game is over, but I'd rather dead players just respawned back at home and continue the game to some higher point total.
