My all-time favorite. Two-player fantasy skirmish with lots of tactics and dice True, the dice and card draw can mess you up, but still, the better player will win most games and has a quick play time. Some factions are OP, but I've shelved them. Exps add a lot to deck-building.

This will be a must buy for anyone even remotely interested in Summoner Wars. I love all the new factions and they each play very differently. Totally worth it and a must buy!!

There are many who bash on this game, but it remains my favorite. I like that you have to make the best with the card draws you get, because you can burn through the deck faster if you want or need to and you won't have people you play ALWAYS playing every game the same way with the same cards first. I like the speed of play, the cleverness of the abilities, the tactile movement of the cards, and the randomness from the dice to let you pull off those critical hits at the perfect time to win (or even that tough loss when you really thought you had it in the bag). I don't know if I necessarily need to keep expanding into second summoners, but everything up to that point is giving me more options than I could hope for in most games. A great, great game that you do NOT have to play hundreds of times to know what you're doing or be great at (regardless of what a couple of reviewers have said).

After obtaining the entire set of factions and reinforcement packs I have to say this game is well balanced, fun, dramatic, creative, and provides unlimited variability... increasing my rating from 9 to a 10. Great job plaid hat games!

Quite simply the best 2 player game I own. Solid mechanics, and a ton of variety with the expansions. Sadly it doesn't get played as often as I'd like since I rarely if ever have one on one board game opportunities. Even so, I'll continue to purchase future expansions, with the hope that one day it will get much more playing time. I rate Summoner Wars as a whole (i.e. All factions and reinforcements) a 10. While what I have rated the individual expansions may slightly differ, The game as a whole is more than the sum of its parts.

Pro - Adds even more reason why this game deserves 10/10. 6 new but yet unique factions. It is rare to have a game like this where all 14 factions is this unique yet perfectly balanced... Comes with a great graphics battlefield hard board. A must.

Con - Makes other game pale in comparison...

Ever have the itch to pull out those nice painted miniatures and clash with another army on the tabletop, replete with fantasy theme and special powers, but only have an hour? Not going to happen with minis. It CAN happen with Summoner Wars, though. This fantastic card game gives you the same feel of moving your units across the table to vanquish your foes, but with a deck of cards. You almost have to try it to believe me that it feels like a full minis game. The artwork could be better, but it does its job evoking the theme and setting the tone. Tons of replayability in the future with deck-building aspects and new factions. Another MUST HAVE for anyone who enjoys a tactical fantasy battle.

See Summoner Wars. This is an excelent starting point (was my first set, since was impossible to get anything SW related before in large parts of Europe) and Mountain Vargath is my favorite faction so far. Sold my 1. st edition and bought the second printing instead so it can actually fit on my shelves.

Summoner Wars is one of the best games out there. The Master Set, though a later addition to the family, is really the best place to start. In addition to new factions, this set added some much-needed components (i.e. a box to store everything and a nice board).

The advent of the iOS version of the game only heightens my deep love for Summoner Wars. It is one of the only games my non-gaming family will play, and I feel it has helped me be closer to some family members whom I rarely see. It is also a great platform for learning the game.

The Master Set, as I mentioned, is another great jumping-on point for new players. Actually, I would recommend it before the so-called starter sets, just because it has more user-friendly components.

Short story, Summoner Wars is a masterpiece. Anyone who doesn't know it yet needs to learn!

A finely crafted army duel game, each army plays with different feels and strategies, with combat being at the right level of unpredictability to allow swings and surprises without it overwhelming the whole game. I don't plan on doing any custom deck building with this, but I don't need to - it plays wonderfully out of the box, with surprisingly sound balance (with the possible exception of the Vanguard, although maybe I'm just bad at them).

Rating is for 2-player, out-of-the-box. I've played a little bit of 3+ player, and I'm fine keeping it as a 2-player affair.

Review after 30-40 (Master Set) plays - Outstanding. Amazing replayability. Ridiculously good value for all the hours and hours of entertainment contained in the box.

After playing Summoner Wars for almost 2 years now I still can't quite figure out how so many of the games come down to white-knuckle, stand up for the final deciding roll, crazy finishes. All I know is we love the game and it just keeps getting better and better.

I really enjoy the new factions. Shadow elves and Benders especially. Wasn't expecting as much but the Sand Goblins and Swamp Orcs are also fun to play. Deep Drawves are also a great addition. Still getting a feel for the Vargath.

Excellent addition to the first factions produced for Summoner Wars. I still have to learn and get used to playing the new factions. My only gripe is that the box is gigantic and does not fit well with my current shelving.

Tactical card game that offers up 1v1 or team based play. The game's core is simple to get to terms with but the depth comes from the natures of each Faction and how they best need to be played.

Combat favours the attack, which ensures that games don't become too defensive. The Event cards ensure that surpises and combos can be found at every turn.

A wonderful game for fathers and sons and gamers alike.

The Master Set also offers great value for money.

Awesome game! The only problem is with the box, that is unnecessary big and the cards get mix up if you hold the box in vertical position. Despite the change to a new box in second print, it could be better (like Nightfall box).

This is the first game in a long time where the more I play, the more I want to play. I've already played all races at least twice and barely started to explore the possibilities and match-ups.

The six races have very different playstyles, and though the game is easy to learn, it's hard to master. Everyone will find races to love and others to hate.

Logging all Summoner Wars plays under this entry.

Amazing. The Master Set is excellent and the other factions I've tried have really added a lot to the game. The different factions all play differently so they offer a ton of replay value.

Update 10/01/2012: Still absolutely love this game. Even when playing with the same factions again, every game is still much different. The custom faction dice really add to the visual appeal of the game.
