This is the download page for Wagic, the homebrew. Wagic is an internationally acclaimed open source Trading Card Game simulation, made by card games fans and backed up by a large community of players and modders. The project has been active since 2008 and supports a massive amount of cards. Wagic is especially adapted to mobile devices (PSP, iPhone, iPad, Android,…) but also works on Windows and Linux PC. If you’re looking for more info about this project, check the following links:
Wagic FAQMedia (Wagic Screenshots & videos)Wagic forums

Wagic works on Windows, Linux, the nokia N900 (maemo), the Nokia N9 (meego), Android (tablets and phones), OUYA, iOS(iPhone/iPad/iPad2) and the Sony PSP (Wagic does not require you to hack your PSP).

Download the latest version of Wagic

Disclaimer: I have not personally been involved with the development of Wagic since 2012. The latest “official” version released while I was driving the project is version 0.18.6, which can be downloaded in the next section below.

However there is an active community of fans and developers who keep maintaining Wagic. Although I cannot guarantee the quality of the recent releases (not that I don’t believe the people working on it are good, but only – again – because I have not been involved in the project for years), I recommend you give them a try:

Download Wagic 0.18.6 (last version released by Wololo, 2012)

Each release is extensively tested on several machines including my own PSP/Computer/Android phone. However Wagic is a work in progress so please check the buglist.


For some of these builds, you will also need the Core files when they are not included in the archive. Wagic 0.18.6 Core files: all platforms except iOS  – iOS version.

Wagic is 100% free.

Updating Wagic


If you have version 0.16.1 or lower, it is recommended that you erase your current Wagic install and reinstall from scratch. Go to our forums for detailed help on how to keep your progress

If you have version 0.17.0 or higher, follow these steps:

  • IF you have mods: It is recommended that you delete all mods from your current Wagic install
  • Erase all files named core_*.zip in your Res folder (Note: this is not compulsory but strongly recommended for performance reasons)
  • Simply extract the zip into your existing Wagic installation folder, in order to overwrite the current binary (EBOOT.PBP on the PSP, and Wagic.exe on windows). You’re done


  • If you have version 0.17.1 or lower, first uninstall your current installation of Wagic (in “Manage applications”)
  • It is strongly recommended to delete all “core_*.zip” files from your current Wagic installation. This is not done automatically! Keeping these files should not prevent the game from running, but could yield weird results and will be bad for performance
  • Once the two previous steps are done, install the Wagic apk like you would install any other third party application

If your android refuses to install a new version of Wagic, please make sure that you uninstalled the previous version. We had to change out certificates recently (in 0.18.0) which prevents Android from installing wagic 0.18 over a previous 0.17 install.




Windows Version

If you get an error complaining about MSCVP100.dll missing you probably need to install the following Visual++ package from microsoft here. If you still have problems, check the forum thread

Android and iOS versions

The Android and iOS port of Wagic are still very early releases and we are aware that they are not perfect. If you’re a dev and think you can help making this project even better, please contact us!

Linux Version

We don’t officially support the linux version, it is distributed here for convenience. However if you have issues running Wagic on *nix, ask for help on the forums, you might be lucky and a good soul could have an answer for you

    Wagic is a terrific game, but I have hit a bug. Every time I cast Coalition Victory, the game freezes and shuts down.

  2. Tim says:

    A great addition to the android version of the game would be to make it turn based like words with friends. So you can stop and start play.

  3. reymon says:

    great game!! can’t wait for new cards to arrive

  4. bob says:

    Its worthless anyways iv tryed playing several games and on most of tgm i only got one or 2 pieces of land before i was killed atrifacts enhancements and sorcery dont work half the time and whn u block you always lose that card no matter what this is indeed wagic and not magic uninstalled oh yea im running android

    • wololo says:

      All thecards are extensively tested and work fine. If you find bugs with specific cards, please report them. There is no known bug with blocking so what you describe is unlikely. Finally, if you dont have enough lands you might want to build better decks. This will happen as you get more credits to buy more cards.

      • Itachi says:

        good afternoon sorry I’ve been searching and searching but can not find anything and I wanted to ask a question, and download some of the images of the cards and I have on file. rar and decompressed folder and passed my question is … Where do I get those folders or files. Rar so that they appear in the game pictures. Wagic thank you very much for this beautiful, I have 50% of all cards XD

    • zethfox says:

      sounds like you’re someone that doesn’t follow install instructions. it’s a shame because the game is no where near as buggy as you are making it sound.

      FOLLOW INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS. problem solved.

  5. jorge says:

    hello, is there any chance that I can play wagic on a Ps Vita??

    • wololo says:

      Yes, but for that you need VHBL. VHBL is not available for now unless you have one of the exploitable games, but we are working on a new release of VHBL soon

  6. help says:

    i downloaded wagic on my psp but i cant find it on my psp

  7. MarilynKidman says:

    Hi! Can anyone tell me how can I have de images of the cards for wagic on my iPhone. Thanks!

  8. NokiaNeedsWagic says:

    I’d still be interested in a Symbian version of Wagic. I could test it out on the Nokia E5 (s60v3).

  9. Markus says:

    where can i find a detailed instruction for the game?

    thx alot

  10. luis says:

    Hello i just install wagic for windows and give me an error tell’s me that msvcp100.dll not found.

  13. Anibal says:

    Hi. I downloaded WT H0.18.6 For Windows, but when i try to use it i get an error message “An unhandled win32 exception occured” and then it tries to debug using visual basic or something like that. I have Windows XP 32-bit. Do you know what can be causing this?

  14. Bob says:

    I installed Wagic 0.18.6 on my iPod Touch 2G on iOS 4.2.1
    but when I start it it always crashes, what’s the problem??

    • wololo says:

      I don’t know iDevices very well, but you need at least the iphone 3GS for good graphics support. If your iPod was released before the iPhone 3GS, there is a risk it is too old to support Wagic.

  15. Bob says:

    I miss Wagic, I used to play it on PSP 🙁

  16. mark says:

    Thank you. I have a query: Is it really that slow/laggy playing this on a netbook [1.8G cpu, 2GB mem] ? Is there no way to disable all the animations?

  17. naxil says:

    wow.. i have a real deck. from 1999 blue/black ..
    tnx for this games!

  18. Pete says:

    Hi just to say the game rocks! Still learning to play (like using mana in Upkeep… – untap unused mana would be great) but it’s FUN as heck – always wanted to play that game but not had a chance. Bought 8th edition starter pack ages ago and tried playing with my wife but she wasn’t keen at all. Why WotC didn’t release MtG as a proper iphone/android app is beyond me. They miss on $$$ bucks big time. anyway, **** them – can’t praise what you did enough!

    Using Galaxy S3 – UI is a bit fiddly sometimes though I know it’s a port… what annoys me is that it freezes once the phone goes to sleep – possible bug? Also saving a game would be great.

    Anyway, thanks!!!

  19. David says:

    I setup it in my iphone3GS,but it don’t have picture.
    then i download the picture pack,but i don’t know how to
    put it in my iphone
    anywhy thanks

  20. Jakstone says:

    Every time I play a game.. I tap the correct amount of land and it still doesn’t let me play the card. It happens in 100% of games. I’m using swamp if that matters, but I can’t win a game because my cards don’t play.

    • wololo says:

      What version of wagic do you have, and on what platform? Did you modify the game in any way, for example by adding card pictures?

    • Chris says:

      I continually make the mistake of tapping my lands during the draw phase, forgetting to skip to main 1. You can only cast instant spells outside of the main 1/2 phases.

  21. McHuberts says:

    I try to install Wagic on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 with Android 4.0.

    After installation of the game, I start the game and it starts to download a zip-file. After downloading it gives the message: “Failed to initialize storage space for the game. Please verify that your sdcard or internal memory is mounted properly.”

    I tried to install the game both on my internal memory and external sdcard, which both have plenty of free space.

    What am I doing wrong?

    • wololo says:

      Not sure. try to manually download the zip file and put it in /Wagic/Res on your sdcard.

      • McHuberts says:

        Yep, that works.
        Thx for the quick reply 🙂

        • M says:

          Hello, just got a Galaxy S4 and have the same problem as McHuberts. The solution was to manually download the zip and transfer it to your SD card. I’m not doing this correctly, because when I try to run wagic it just tries to download the zip file again. Could you please go thru the steps in doing this, appreciate any help. Thanks

          • Mr.K says:

            When copying the core_xxxx.zip file you need to transfer it to the folder /wagic/res.
            For myself on the S3 running MIUI, it was on my external SD card. On my old S1 it was in the phone storage.
            If you have a /wagic/res folder on each storage space just copy it to both to be safe, and it shouldn’t download and will load straight away….

  22. anthony says:

    I can compile to PC no problem. I’d like to know how compile to Android (to test current SVN, I have Android 2.3.4 on my phone). I’ve searched the net and forums but there are no guidelines or steps on how to compile/port to android. I already have Android NDK, SDK, ANT and VS-Android. If you can please email me the steps. kevlahnota@yahoo.com


    • wololo says:

      haven’t done it in a while, but:
      1 – compile the c++ sources by typing “ndk-build” in the wagic android folder
      2 – open the eclipse project, it should compile automatically
      3 – done

      • anthony says:

        thanks, I’ll try to use eclipse.

      • Woland says:

        So, do I really need all this stuff like Android NDK, SDK, VS-Android (except Ant) to compile Android version? Is there any SVN source where latest Apk stored?

        • wololo says:

          Yes, you need all of that if you want to compile the SVN version
          No, we don’t have nightly builds. Any specific reason you want the svn version rather than the last official release?

          • Woland says:

            I reported this as defect 929. Sometimes I should pause playing and then can see that Wagic hangs so I should restart duel once again. Second reason is that testing for defects is better to do using latest build… So I will be glad if you could send latest SVN Android build to my enail vladimir_gl(at)mail.ru

          • Woland says:

            I will be appreciated if someone could send me one of the latest APK(stable or nightly) please? Thanks in advance!

          • Unknown Player says:

            I can’t see the images of cards on my psp game can you please help me?


  23. Brandon says:

    First, this is a great game. I downloaded it for psp and it’s amazing. do you think you can make it compatible with java phones like lg gs390 prime? also i play a lot of yugioh but my tag force 5 disc stopped working and i dont feel like buying a new one (poor) could some one make a yugioh mod for this? i suck at coding. Thanks. and again great game.

  24. Doomslayer says:

    all my wagic variants have no pictures, where i can get the pictures BTW Goog job =)

  25. MUD says:

    I cant get my Android device to connect to the internet where can I get the User/RES files for the Android?

  26. Karma control says:

    Didn’t know where else to go, the Wagic forum wouldn’t let me register. 🙁
    Said my email was not allowed to be used, but I used the same email to register to talk forum, so I tried an alternate Gmail account, and it said the same thing.
    I just had some issues for Wagic on both Windows and IOS platforms. On iOS, it seems the game isn’t registering my taps right. Say for example: I’m in the deck editor, and I tap on “filter”. It will display stats instead of letting me choose a filter. Or when I get it to actually go to filter, I’ll click on “Add filter” and add, let’s say green cards only”. When I try to click done, it will usually register that I’m pushing clear. Or if I try to add a secondary filter, and then want to cancel, it still says “card” like it’s waiting for me to put a filter in, but I can’t get rid of it even if I try to push cancel on it’s drop-down list.
    It’ll also start displaying stats if I hover over a card to read it’s effect, which gets in the way a bit.
    I guess I don’t know how the navigation is supposed to work, or if it’s just buggy. I can’t even get it to work because I try to tap something, and it registers my tap as something else.

    So for the PC version, I downloaded it, made sure I have visual++, but it still won’t run. It just says “Wagic.exe has stopped working”

  27. Karma control says:

    Any help would be much appreciated!
    Thanks in advance! 🙂

  28. keith says:

    I used 0.13 now I use 0.18.6

    But, certain card can’t use their ability such as “Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, black card, 4/4 creature in ROE sets. The ability is “XBB, target creature get -0/-X”

    It worked in 0.13.. Is there something I missed?

  29. Canseco says:

    I ported Wagic to OpenPandora:


    Sound doesn’t work, but the rest it’s ok.

  31. lukas says:

    Hi, i’ve installed Wagic on Samsung galaxy note and game works except story mode. When i start on “01. Where it all begins” screen freezes and games hangs. Maybe there’s a workaround or this is just a bug and need to wait for the fix. Tahnk you

  34. Kenny says:

    Stuck. Whenever i finish my move it says “opponents turn – you play” which is the most bs statement ever. Stuck, clicked, pushed every button i can think of. Help?

  35. hello!! says:

    I download the wagic file and for some reason I get it empty. Help please?

  36. Gabriel says:

    Dear Wololo !

    Thank you for your great work, I´m very impressed !!
    But I have some thoughts : I´m a little bit confused about the so called “story mode” –
    I started with 0.18.6. and there was just a tutorial…
    I think I have to download the missions from the forum´s page and put them in the campaign folder, yes ?
    What I really would like to know : Why are they cards getting so much more expensive in the shop, when I achieved more and more sets ? I didn´t understand.

    And what about beautiful cards like Exhume, Necromancy, Dance of the Dead, Show and Tell, Oath of Druids, Chain of Vapor, Impulse, Tangle Wire, Smokestack and Hatred ?

    Are they too difficult to create into Wagic ? And if yes, is there a chance to “hope” for them in the future ?

    Thank you , wish you all the best in everything !

  37. Excuse Me says:

    hello, can anyone give me the link to the images for the cards and where to put them? any help is greatly appreciated 🙂
