World of Warcraft Miniatures Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Sep 19, 2008
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Wage fantasy battles with the World of Warcraft Miniatures! Here’s our toy review.

World of Warcraft is one of the most popular games on earth for one simple reason - it kicks butt. Full of orcs, wizards and weapons so pointy you can put an eye out just looking at them, the online game rules and the WoW card game is a blast too. Now the fantasy warriors are coming home as plastic minis that you can build into teams and challenge your friends with! Here's our review.

Rockin' the Fantasy World!

The way this game works is to give you a pile of fantasy characters, each with ratings for attack, defense, life and then a few special powers to spice things up. Each player makes a team of warriors, sticks 'em on a map and then takes turns hauling butt towards the other team and clobbering them.

Turns and Time

There are ten time ticks per turn and each miniature uses them to move, attack and use abilities. But the time ticks happen one at a time for each warrior, so if a big bruiser uses four on a powerful attack, they have to wait for everybody else to spend their four before they can do anything else.

Smashy-Smashy!

When you attack, you roll your attack rating in dice and the target rolls their defense rating in dice. Any leftover attack points cause damage! You score a bunch of points for knocking out a warrior, but they get to respawn so they'll be back!

Power-up Cards

You can also spice up the game with special cards. You start with a few, face-down so your opponent can't see them, and you flip them up as you play them during the game.

How Awesome?

The World of Warcraft Miniatures game looks good. It has fantastic looking figures for the Alliance and Horde, plus Monsters and six epic figures for special battles. Tracking the time ticks is a bit annoying, but works once you get the hang of it. This game will be a lot of fun for fantasy fans when it hit stores in November 2008.

Thumbs Up:

  • Easy to learn.
  • Awesome fantasy figures!
  • Warcraft = super popular = lots of people to play with.

Thumbs Down:

  • Tracking the turns is frustrating.
  • Ten-sided dice? Six-sided would have been way easier.
