Summoner Wars is a board and card game where two players use units represented by cards on a board to defeat the other’s leader, the eponymous Summoner.
It’s been a terrific year and I am only so happy to still be around and feel as enthusiastic about the podcast, the website and the gaming world as I did a year ago.
Of course, when one has the opportunity to cyber-mingle with amazing people like Colby Dauch, the creator of Summoner Wars, my hobby becomes a privilege.
Inside the box are an updated rulebook that clarifies some old and new rules, plenty of lovely dice and wound markers, a gorgeous playing board (replacing the wrinkly paper mats from the Starter Sets) and, most importantly, six new decks of cards representing six spanking new factions.
Summoner Wars, released in 2009 by Plaid Hat Games, the brainchild of Colby Dauch, is a fast, card-based battle game. Although primarily a two player game, there are rules for up to four players.
