Description Edit | History

Summoner Wars is a fast-playing, action-packed card game for 2-4 players in which they take on the role of Summoners: powerful beings who harness the power of mysterious Summoning Stones to lead their race to conquest on the war-torn planet of Itharia. These Summoners wield terrible magic on the battlefield, freezing their foes in place, draining their enemies of power, and even bringing rains of fire down from the heavens. But most notoriously, they summon their great race's hordes of warriors to the battlefield, to clash in the never-ending struggle for supremacy. A Summoner is both mage and general, and must combine their wizardly might with clever tactics to defeat the enemy Summoner on the opposite side of the battle.

The Summoner Wars Master Set contains six new and different complete factions from which to choose:

• Play as the Shadow Elves and conceal your plans in swirling darkness!
• Choose the Benders and confound your foe, turning his own troops against him!
• Command the Vargath, mountainous goatfolk who call lightning from the heavens!
• Select the nefarious Sand Goblins and delight in malicious trickery!
• Muster the Deep Dwarves and control the forces of Geomancy!
• Lead the ferocious Swamp Orcs to war and hack upon your foes as they are snared in your vines!

Strategy shapes the composition of each deck of cards and how they are used. Tactics determine the effectiveness of those cards in battle. Call walls of stone to protect you in combat and serve as magic portals for you to summon your warriors. Call your forces forth and send them in a surging wave against your enemy. Cast spells that bolster your forces and cut down those who would oppose you.

Victory can come only from the death of your opponent's Summoner...

11 Summoner Wars Attack Odds Reference Card
Summoner Wars Attack Odds Reference card inspired by a thread on Plaid Hat Games forum (Never tell me the odds). The card has 2,5x3,5 ratio (so it's not the Summoner Wars ratio). There is front and back on the picture.

0 Four-Player Summoner Wars: House Rules
Players 1 & 3 are allies against Players 2 & 4. The highest roller determines which player goes first (i.e. who will be “Player 1”), and standard first-turn rules apply. Turns go 1-2-3-4, repeating. 1. a) Allies share one communal Magic pile and one communal discard pile. b) “Your side of the Battlefield” refers to your team's collective half of the boards. 2. Units may move and attack freely between the two Battlefields as if the inner buffer between the game boards did not exist. The outer edges of the Battlefield are absolute. 3. During your turn, your ally's Walls are considered “under your control” – you may summon to spaces adjacent to them, and Events/abilities that affect/employ Walls which “you control” extend to your ally's Walls as well. 4. During your turn, you...

My own German translation of all Tundra Orcs Cards included in the Starter Set. Just print them out and put them inside your Card Sleeves or sellotape them on your English cards to make it easier to teach the game to someone struggling with English, now that Uhrwerk Verlag has stopped to publish a German version of the game.
