US: WizKids debuts new Dungeons & Dragons card game, Rock Paper Wizard

Players take on the roles of wizards who must try to outwit their opponents in a race for loot.

WizKids has launched Rock Paper Wizard, a new Dungeons & Dragons card game.

In Rock Paper Wizard, three to six players take on the roles of wizards who must try to outwit their opponents in a race for loot, using spells from Wizards of the Coast’s Dungeons & Dragons game.
 
Each player chooses their spell and casts some magic by repeating one of the hand gestures found on the cards in front of them. Everyone says “Rock, Paper, Wizard”, and upon saying “Wizard", forms a hand gesture and points it towards a target.

Each card describes the spell’s effect, which can push opponents towards the exit, advance themselves towards the hoard or manipulate the coins that the wizards must collect to win. The first wizard to collect 25 pieces of gold wins the game.
