Alamaze is the multi-award winning fantasy war game set in the fantastic realm of Alamaze. Magic is often paramount, but players must also wisely utilize their military, economic, political and covert resources in order to see their kingdom prosper. It makes its exciting return now in mid-2013 under the direction of its original designer.
The Fantasy Kingdoms of Alamaze are widely varied along multiple lines: military composition, magical power and limits, political clout, strength of economy and covert resources. Kingdoms include traditional fantasy powers such as the Elves, Dark Elves, Dwarves, and also the Warlock, Sorcerer and Witch King, along with several unique kingdoms such as the Ancient Ones, the Demon Princes, the Red and Black Dragons and the Underworld. Each has different strengths and weaknesses, and secret objectives that change game to game.
Character development is important. Military leaders gain rank through experience as do spellcasters. The comprehensive magic system includes more than 60 spells that can be researched, increasing the power of your spell casters. Spells vary by kingdom. Other unique and important game concepts include The High Council, Skeletons in the Closet, Regional Control, and unusual sightings where artifacts may be discovered.
The Fantasy Kingdoms of Alamaze is a turn based, multi-player campaign styled game where each campaign will provide enjoyment for months, as players have several days between turns to consider their actions and implement their strategy in the grand tradition of text based PBEM gaming that Alamaze helped define.

"Among the many innovations in Alamaze is the truly fantastic magic system, unequaled anywhere in PBM. Not only does the magic system fit in with the entire game system hand-in-hand, it also shows the depth and massive amounts of designing and programming time spent lavishly in this game."
