Osprey Games has to announced they will be publishing a game based on Susanna Clarke’s popular novels series Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. I just got hooked on the BBC television show TV series starring Bertie Carvel and Eddie Marsan on Netflix so I am really excited to hear about the game!
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell: A Board Game of English Magic was designed by Marco Maggi and Francesco Nepitello (War of the Ring, The Battle of the Five Armies) and illustrated by the talented Ian O’Toole (The Gallerist, Stockpile, and Lisboa). It tasks 2-4 players to compete to become the most celebrated magician of the age.
Francesco Nepitello said “working with Duncan Molloy and the team at Osprey has been a fantastic experience. In their hands, our design was not simply transformed from a rough prototype to a beautiful, polished product, but it has been tweaked and improved in so many subtle ways that we cannot wait to get our hands on it. Real magic!”
In Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell magic has returned to England and as an aspiring magicianyou will need to collect tomes on magic, impress everyone with your magic, and build up your power in order to face the ominous gentleman with the thistle-down hair.
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell: A Board Game of English Magic will hit stores in June 2019.
