Announcing The Maguss Wand Fan Art Competition

What is the Maguss Wand?

It’s been over a month since the Maguss Wand has been part of the Higher Eclectic Ground community.  Built of durable plastic and finished with a traditional wooden texture, the Maguss Wand lets users step outside with their friends and engage in duels by casting spells, defending themselves and gradually growing into legendary wizards. Yes, spells. Rather than have magic at play however, these ‘spells’ are cast by performing their corresponding motions which are then picked up by ‘receivers’ worn by each user participating in the duel. The received signal is then routed to the Maguss servers by the user’s smartphones, where they are evaluated and sent back as battle scores.

Over the course of last month, the Higher Eclectic Team has worked closely with that of Maguss’ – through their acclaimed Kickstarter campaign, events , expos and now through the course of the wand’s development over the course of next year – bringing with us the latest previews and snippets and helping Maguss grow in the process. Our community’s loved them.

1st Place – Rare Collector’s Replica, Your Own Spell And Maguss’ VIP Mailing List.

 

  • A 34 cm long, 5mm-2cm wide replica of the Maguss Wand (App and Receiver not included) as seen in the image above. While the actual wands themselves are still being tweaked and developed to perfection far from their state of production, consider this replica a rare collector’s item that you can brag to the internet about once the Maguss Wand hits shelves worldwide.
  • The opportunity to create, register and name a spell of your own for the Maguss Wand, that will eventually be made available to Maguss owners worldwide once production begins. It is worth noting that this privilege was only available to those who had previously contributed up to $1,000 to Maguss’ Kickstarter campaign.
  • An inclusion into Maguss’s VIP mailing list that will have the team personally send you development updates, exclusive snippets and a lot more via E-mail, allowing you to provide suggestions and opinions on Maguss’ growth.

 

2nd Place – Maguss T-shirts, Naming Spells and Maguss’ VIP Mailing List.

 

 

  • An official Maguss T-shirt as worn and distributed by the team at this year’s IstroCon in Slovakia. Wear it, flaunt it.
  • From the 2nd to the 7th of this month, Maguss is putting up graphic art of each of the six spells that the Maguss Wand is current capable of, inviting fans from all over the world to suggest a name for each of them. Now while each spell is likely to receive hundreds of suggestions, the art competition’s second place holder will be given the opportunity to pick the best community suggested name for at least one of the six spells.
