Disney Theme Park Merchandise is introducing a new trading card game in August that is based on Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. This at-home game includes a way to obtain those super rare spell cards plus a whole bunch more.
“We wanted a way to extend the magic found with the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom experience beyond the park,” explained Cody Hampton, Associate Developer for toys and games. “We created a trading card game that allows guests to use the cards from their in-park experience in a whole new way at home.”
The trading card game will contain seven randomly selected spell cards (including at least one super rare spell card), one of four game boards, game rules, new tokens and a complete spell card checklist.
“We worked closely with Walt Disney Imagineering while creating the game,” said Disney Design Group Artist Quynh Kimball. “They provided images from the in-park experience for the at-home version. There are four different game boards featuring Maleficent, Dr. Facilier, Jafar and Cruella DeVil. Much like the in-park game, the goal is to work together as a team to get the villain’s power level to zero. The game rules are very thorough but easy to understand. I think anyone ages six and up will have a fun time playing.”
The cards sold in the “booster pack” will work with the in-park game. They are the same cards (numbers 1 to 60) that are distributed at the Sorcerers recruitment center on Main Street, USA. The super-rare cards will also work with the in-park game. The “free packs” with cards 1-60 will continue to be distributed at the Sorcerers Recruitment Center. There are no plans at this time for cards 61-70 to be included in the packs distributed at the Sorcerers Recruitment Center. They will only be found in the retail booster packs.
A new mystery pin set is also planned for release later this year.

The game will be released at several Walt Disney World Resort locations, and it will be carried via the online Disney Parks Store at a future date. The entire trading card game set which includes the booster pack of seven cards, one randomly selected game board, and tokens will be $11.95 each.
