Wizard, a game that is in AMIGOs portfolio since 1996, still finds a rising number of players around the world, Saboteur has the same since 2004.
Since the start of National Championships, a tournament series was founded where every player can participate and compete at the Wizard and Saboteur World Championship that is held once a year.

This year the World Championship takes place in Riga, Latvia. Champions and even runner-ups from many different countries compete versus one another to determine the World Champion.
Last year Robert Laschkolnig from Switzerland won the title of Wizard World Champion while Steven Chu from Hong Kong claimed Saboteur World Champion.
