Villains Get Trickier: Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom "Hard Level" Rules Change


The Disney Blog reports that as of October 10, 2013, the game offers three levels - Easy, Medium and Hard - which can be accessed based on how often and how much a guest plays. Changes were recently made to the game's existing "Hard" level and now each time a guest plays at this level, a villain's weakness will change, making the game different and more challenging each time.

Merlin the Magician just shared some hints with us as to how to beat villains at this level:

To figure out which spell types (Gross, Charming, Strong, Flying, Wishful, Quick or Energy) will defeat a villain, simultaneously cast several cards of differing spell types on the first turn of a battle. On that first turn, watch the power levels of the spells you’ve cast. If you watch carefully, you’ll learn which spell type worked best against the villain. When you see a spell hit the villain at full power, you’ll know that’s the type of spell you need to cast.

No changes have been made to the Easy and Medium levels.

 

Casting a Spell: Guests are Part of the Story in Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., Jan. 30, 2012 - Inspiration meets innovation when Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom opens to Walt Disney World Guests in late February of this year. This immersive, role-playing game features unprecedented interaction with Disney characters who come to life in previously hidden areas throughout Magic Kingdom park. Families, friends and individuals can take on the animated Disney Villains by casting spell cards featuring Rafiki, Rapunzel, Woozles and more than 60 other characters. Individually created by Disney artists and trading card game experts, these beautiful, collectible cards will come in packages of five free to Guests ready to take on the villains.

"Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom gives our Guests a new way to become the hero of the Disney story, taking Disney innovation to a new level," said Jonathan Ackley, Producer & Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering. "It's a great game of discovery and excitement that plays off our wonderful theme park and incredible family of Disney animated characters."

Imagineers spent more than four years creating and perfecting this unique experience, which can be played in 15 to 20 minute segments throughout the Guests' visit to the Magic Kingdom, or continuously for up to three to four hours. More than 95 minutes of original animation was created for Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom – equal to a full-length animated film. While trading card games are popular with about 60 million people in the US, this is the first time players can experience the challenge in such a complex environment. Guests of all ages will love the storytelling, the engagement with Disney characters and the discovery of hidden details of the Magic Kingdom.




1/31/12 -- Deb Wills writes: Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom continues to have periodic soft openings. Sunday afternoon I was fortunate to finally find the Fire House door open with a sign that Sorcerers were wanted! A Cast Member checks you in by swiping your admission ticket (you can only play once a day) and hands you a map, 5 Sorcerer Cards, and a special key card that activates the portals. There are a total of 70 Sorcerer cards which are divided into nine different spell classes, such as Princess cards, Hero cards or Warrior cards. Your job, as Merlin’s apprentice sorcerer, is to save the Magic Kingdom from the Disney villains. In the practice area you swipe the key card to learn the location of your first portal. Since I only played at 3 portals I don't feel I had enough experience to give you a review, just a few observations. First, remember that the game is still in testing. I found at least one portal that was not working properly and I encountered lines of folks waiting at all 3 of my portals. The map shows locations in Fantasyland, Adventureland, Main Street and Liberty Square-Frontierland but I was only in Adventureland. The cards are colorful and I can see how you'd want to collect a whole set. Once the game is fully online there will be various levels of play and additional features. And, if you get duplicate spell cards, well there is always trading!

You start at the fire station; however, from the maps it looks like a second location will open in Liberty Square. You are given a key and five power spell cards. Your first intro is at the fire station and then you are given your next location. You go to various points all in the same land, not running all over the park. Most of the screens were behind windows with curtains. There is a symbol on the ground to help. I think we went to five places before our mission was over, however, we could continue in another land if wanted. Each power card has an energy attack, energy boost, and energy shield point value. There are 70 different cards to collect.

From fireballs to frantic frogs and cyclones, there are spells to bring down each and every villain, with a simple flick of the wrist.
