Tower of the Wizard King

board game

In 1993 Parker Brothers produced the board game Tower of the Wizard King, a race and battle game with one intriguing feature. Players may enter the plastic tower during each turn, and be transformed--via clever mechanics--into another warrior creature with different powers and weaknesses. In this way, a player may vanquish another player until her or his turn, when another transformation is an option. Review comments praise the game's novelty.
