Classic strategy, colorful character

Shop Mythic Mischief

1-4 Players | 30-90 Minutes

A critically-acclaimed abstract strategy game full of colorful characters & monstrous fun

Mythic Mischief is an approachable assymetric strategy game that scales to any level of experience. The core rules can be learned in minutes, while true mastery would require more computational power than human brains can muster. 

Easy to learn, hard to master

Whether you're looking for an entry point to basic strategic thinking, or a challenging duel for masters of strategy, Mythic Mischief scales to any level of experience.

Playable asymmetry

Each faction's abilities follow the same structure, with minor differences to how they affect the mythics and board state, making learning a new faction easy.

Highly replayable

With 4 factions in the base game and 3 additional expansion factions, it will be a long time before you’ve played every combination, each with a different strategic twist.

Meet your classmates

Each faction in Mythic Mischief is filled with three colorful characters.

Wizards

At first glance, this crew looks harmless. A second glance will reveal that they still look harmless, but don’t underestimate them — these portal-popping punks are here one second and gone the next! It’s like all the greatest wizards (and biggest nerds) say: “Less sun on the skin, more power within!”

Zombies

And you thought that kid in your class smelled bad... These care-free carcasses shred through the hallways like they own the place. But it’s not just grind-rails and graffiti for these ghouls, they also love a good practical joke. Teachers and monsters alike beware, these undead pranksters are rot-to-trot.

Frankenstein's Monsters

Bolt, Bash, and Beast are an all-star, bad-dream scream- team. This Varsity crew of cadavers reeks of body odor, rigor mortis, and deodorant spray. Hall monitors beware — these monsters do not scare, and these three sporty spooks are dying for something to do!

Vampires

You thought you were cool in high school? Guess again, little fool. This gang’s too ghoul for school! Decked out in dark leather and greased up in gel, mousse, and adolescent “sheen,” this trio is the epitome of bad atti...err — BAT-attitude!

Three Faction Expansions

Expand your asymmetric options with a troop of trolls, coven of witches, and gaggle of ghosts.

BGG Review

This is superb game, loved almost everything about it - artwork, length of game, asymmetric abilities but not too complex, small table space, yet does not take anything away from the game, good tactical puzzle, head to head action, yet good enough variability with layouts and before/after lunch cards to make it unique and different, so yeah in general very very good abstract game with cool theme slapped on. My only negative and it might be just a feeling than actual negative, some teams feel waker than others, or it might just be that they feel weaker against specific team, but general definitely will be bringing this to the table in future and will probably hunt for small team add ons to get more variability with teams.

Love it. Lovely theme and gameplay. But be warned one mistake and your opponent can really capitalize so it requires deep thought. Moving the shifting bookcases around perfectly to where your opponent didn’t see something only to lose one of there Mythics is such a joy. Lovely stuff and very rewarding. I love the theme and miniatures. Great production.

BGG Review

A really clever puzzle game! The way every character has a little twist on two main actions (moving opponents and moving bookshelves) is great.

The solo mode is quite challenging and is great for people who like games where you have to figure out the best combination of actions to outsmart your opponents.

BGG Review

I recommend this game. I have played so far only 2P games but I can already say this game shines in 2P, in 3/4 it will gain a coop mechanic. Except for the rulebook which could be more streamlined, I'm very satisfied with the game as a whole. Production quality (including the insert) is excellent, rules are easy, variability & replayability are also very good and game mechanics entertaining.

BGG Review

Brilliant game. A relatively lite, thematic, competitive movement and puzzle game with slightly asymmetric team abilities. It does have a bit of analysis paralysis (AP) because turn-to-turn board-state changes so fast. Rules are clear and quite specifically worded, and we haven't had an issue deciphering any of them. Pretty fast to teach, and only moderate to master.Only detractor is that AP can be high (recommend using blitz rules or a turn timer after you know the rules) and wish that point scoring was more satisfying (for the most part, you'll score 1 per turn).

BGG Review

Another amazing game from iv studios, note that this game rewards multiple play throughs -the more you play, the faster you get at it and the more interesting it becomes. First turn on the first game had us locked in AP with so many possibilities but the turn where I did my first board clear taking out all 3 of my opponent's characters felt simply fantastic. Great game, always tight in the scoring.
