Summoner Wars

20160827_154013Anthony played a mining faction (Deep Dwarves maybe) and Jeremy played a different dwarf faction (Guild Dwarves).  The factions have different special abilities and strengths depending on the cards.  Anthony ended up winning this game by killing Jeremy’s summoner despite Jeremy’s number of dice in the picture above.

Summoner Wars

A game for 2 to 4 players that takes about an hour to an hour and a half to play.  The game play is a combination of magic like cards including characters and special abilities that go with different races, movement on a map, attacking with dice, and sacrifice to pay for more characters being placed on the map.  The goal is to take out the other player’s summoner before they take out yours.  Each race has different special abilities included in their standard deck as well as the possibility of mixing in other characters and abilities.  There isn’t that much deck building involved though. A good game of strategy with many facets.
