The beloved king Shapiro has perished in a freak catapult accident, but not before his most suspiciously named and irrefutably trusted adviser, Evil Wizard Mordak, claimed credit for his “murder” and legged it through a hastily conjured portal to the WORLD OF ETERNAL AND UNCARING DARKNESS. Mordak promised the kingdom he’d return in 8 days with semi-phenomenal cosmic powers to take his rightful seat upon Shapiro’s ruined throne! A lofty promise for an amateur Wizard…

Originally I was thinking Playing as Mordak, you are OP and players don't stand a chance, but After a few games playing as Mordak, it's a good challenge, you can really make 1Vmany play hard. Digging this game! looking forward to the new game!

Great mechanics, very thematic. Definitely overpowered toward villain at 2 vs. 1. Hoping to try 4-5 vs. 1 for better balance.
