Our game group just got into Summoner Wars and dig the tactical aspect, and the mini wargame-feel using cards.

So looking for similar games to take look at.

Feel free to add ideas for us.

I get the feeling this one might have influenced Summoner Wars a bit.

everybody seems to say this one should appeal to a SW fan.

Sadly what appears a large learning curve, spell building time between games and 90 minute playtime are all major turn offs

This one feels more like a traditional minis game using cards. There is also a historical version.

It isn't a traditional board game so consider if this is a good fit. To me it almost feels like a turned based RTS.

My group loves Summoner Wars. I'll admit this game hasn't hit our tables but I haven't tried as I have many younger players.

This one has come to my notice recently, and I'm wondering about it. No board, the cards are so thick that they become tiles, and shorter play times than SW, but it does use dice with asymmetrical forces.

Sure looks like it's in the same family, although word has it that the obviously similar theme is belied by the very different mechanisms involved.
