Following the worldwide success of Sorcery: Contested Realm, Erik’s Curiosa is excited to unveil its latest expansion, Arthurian Legends, at Spiel Essen from October 3-6. This eagerly awaited release promises to enchant both new and veteran players with beautifully crafted cards featuring more than 250 hand-painted pieces of art, for standalone use or alongside Sorcery’s Alpha and Beta editions.

A New Chapter for Sorcery: Contested Realm

Sorcery: Contested Realm has captured the hearts of TCG enthusiasts with its unique blend of strategic gameplay and stunning artwork. Arthurian Legends continues this tradition, drawing inspiration from the rich tapestry of Arthurian mythology, while building upon the foundations laid out by Sorcery’s previous editions.

"Following Sorcery's Alpha and Beta editions was a lofty task, having seen it breaking Kickstarter records and selling out worldwide," says Simon Swan, Director of Operations at Erik's Curiosa. "Our design and development team have proven more than equal to the challenge and we are excited for players to continue on their journey in the Contested Realm and for them to welcome new friends to enjoy their favorite hobby.”

Players can look forward to encountering legendary characters and locations from Arthurian tales, as well as fantastical creatures, each brought to life through intricate, hand-painted art.

Simon shares “As we move later into 2024, our aim is to directly support our stores and players with the Sorcery Play Network, and to work with some showcase events such as Spiel Essen, so people can fully appreciate the scale of the tremendous community which has supported us and established Sorcery’s success."
