WizKids will release Dungeons & Dragons: Rock Paper Wizard, a new stand-alone game, in January.

The game imagines a conflict between wizards trying to claim a vanquished dragon’s treasure.  Each wizard has a number of iconic Dungeons & Dragons magic spells at their disposal, represented in the game by cards.  Each card shows a Rock, Paper, Scissors style hand gesture that the player must make in order to cast their chosen spell.  Chanting “Rock, paper, wizard,” all players simultaneously make their spell-gesture and point at a target for their spell, which might move them towards or away from the dragon’s hoard or manipulate the game in some other way.  The first wizard to collect 25 gold pieces wins the game.

Dungeons & Dragons: Rock Paper Wizard is designed for 3 - 6 players.  MSRP is $19.99.
