Local Area Gamers Finding Success With Wizard Miners

Learn about these local gamers and Wizard Miners Anthony Petruzelli, founder of Petro Gaming Group and creator of Wizard Miners, along with Wizard Miners game tester, Mike Gonski, were on The Beasley Philadelphia Public Affairs Show to discuss how they created a family-friendly board game called Wizard Miners, and how to play Wizard Miners. It has been tested at GenCon for six years and will be available to purchase in 2024. Here is a summary of how the game is played: A race to the treasure under the mountain requires a great mining company. Why not one run by a wizard? Dig, drill, & blast your way while casting spells to slow your opponents down! In Wizard Miners, each player has a Mine Deck of cards that represents the cave they are mining. The object is to clear all of the cards from your deck first. As you mine, you will find gems in the rock. With these gems, you can buy more and better tools with which to mine and dynamite to cave in your opponents’ caves. But what’s the point of having a wizard in charge if you aren’t casting spells? Each turn, each player can cast spells to make their tools mine better, break other players’ tools, blast rock from your mine, or cave in your opponents’ mines. If you enjoy playing games, hearing how the game was created, developed, and tested is fascinating. There is a lot of detail work put into the creation of a game. Petro Gaming is an inspiration for people who love gaming. You can get more information about Petro Gaming Group, here. Follow them on social media, just search Petro Gaming.
