Wizkids games aims to make only games which are the product of a lot of imagination and creativity and will be exciting to gamers everywhere. While Wizkids focus on producing collectible miniature games,l these games are not just for collecting - the miniature figures are greta for bringing a lot of excitement to tabletop gaming.

Booster Packs And Starter Sets

You can get started with the various collectible miniature games from Wizkids either in their Starter sets or Booster packs.

The combat dial is an innovative feature which no other collectible miniature game manufacturer offers that Wizkids gives to gamers. These give players all of the most important information they need right at their fingertips. Statistics for the figures included in each set are also present, saving players a lot of "look up" time.
