A Collectable Miniatures Game (CMG) is a new type of game
that combines collectability and pre-painted miniature figures
into a game with the fun and challenge of chess.
All of WizKids CMGs are sold in Starter Sets
and Booster Packs and are played by two or more
players. A typical two-player game takes less than one hour.
A player can build an army out of a single Starter Set and
can add to his collection by purchasing Booster Packs.
Larger games are common, with scenarios taking from 30 minutes
to two hours. Fast game-play is possible due to the innovative
Combat Dial base on each miniature figure. Each Combat Dial
has all of a figures statistics: Attack, Defense, Movement/Speed,
Damage, and Special Abilities. This means players dont
have to cross-reference numbers in charts or rulebooks. The
Combat Dial Base also does away with bookkeeping, because
the figures statistics change as the dial is rotated
during the game.
The plastic figures are created by the best science fiction
and fantasy miniature sculptors in the industry, and each
figure is incredibly detailed. There are 100 or more figures
in each release, with six levels of rarity ranging from common
WizKids CMGs successfully combine a visual Wow
factor with collectability and offer a great gaming experience.
