This Summoner Wars Master Set has everything you need to play including:
6 Complete Faction Decks
1 Premium Board
1 Revised Rulebook
5 Six-Sided Dice
20 Wound Markers
1 Plastic Tray (with space for more Faction Decks)

The 6 Factions included are all completely new and ready to play:
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!

Summoner Wars is proud to have a brand new printing company working on the game. The quality of the components are better than they have ever been before.

This Master Set is scheduled to arrive in June of 2011 and will retail for $49.95. It is available for pre-order now at PlaidHatGames.com.



Also coming June of 2011 is Hawk’s Strike and Goodwin’s Blade. Hawk’s Strike includes more Cloaks, Jungle Elves and Mercenaries. Goodwin’s Blade includes more Fallen Kingdom, Vanguards, and Mercenaries.

Each of these packs will retail for $9.95. They are available for pre-order now at PlaidHatGames.com.

Wow, I saw the title and thought to myself...."dang, I finally broke down and bought the game a few weeks ago and of course they announce the deluxe version right after that". Six entirely new factions though, released all at once? Count me in for this for sure...that's even cheaper than just purchasing six factions!

(heh, I sound like a huge fanboy, don't I? Can't help it, that's just a really good deal)

Sweet. Now I'll hold out to get that for a second premium board to play 4-player.

I'm very impressed that you guys aren't duplicating the sets that are already for sale - that makes it a "must buy" for me!

Same here. I just picked up the last of the small packs, that were recently released, today. The only thing that bums me out... the wait.

this is like a dream come true.
how many factions can the box hold? considering the reinforements.
also, looking at the other thread, i see that we are finnaly going to see those terrain cards. 15 vine walls sound duper cool.
also, it seems like torodin (champion of the vargath) is going to have his own event. I want to see how that works out.

Fantastic! And now a box to hold all my cards. I've been trying to figure out storage issues and now I can just throw them in the new box! Wonder if you can fit 2 deluxe boards in there? I almost ordered a second one the other day, so glad I didn't.

Same here, I just ordered a premium board from the site last week and was kicking myself that I didn't toss in a second one.

I'd be curious to see what the plastic tray looks like and just how many faction decks it can hold.

Finally the big box to store it all.
NEW Promo option too!

Nice.
Any chance on the updated rules being posted soon?

Is it going to be the same mounted board as was already available?

If so I’ll have to consider having two for four-player games or picking up some more faction decks and gifting my board to a friend with two factions, dice, and some wound markers...

That Master Set looks fantastic. And the price is great too - 6 factions for the price of five, plus all the extra components.

Will the plastic tray accommodate sleeved cards?

I hope the back of the box shows images from the other 8 existing factions. That would make it less painful to discard the old boxes and keep everything in this spanking new box.

Yay.

I suppose we'll be able to buy the new factions individually?

This is a must-have. More publishers should do things like this. The box is going to be packed with value.

Wow! This is awesome news! I went ahead and made my first order through Plaid Hat Games for this, I even added the expansion packs for the Cloaks and Jungle Elves even though I haven't ordered them yet! Hurry up June!

Great value! Chalk me up for one.

I hope the box isn't too big. I like how portable the game is right now (especially with a cloth board). That said, 14 factions and a premium board will need more storage space. More than anything else, I hope you're making money with your game; you could easily set the MSRP at $60 and it would still be a great value.

Now I just have to wait for the video game that is probably on the way!

Holy crap!

Edit: yeah, put me down as another person relieved and amazed that the Master Set is going to come with NEW factions! I mean, with all the talk of a Deluxe set, I'd resolved myself to re-buying some old factions to get the new hotness but there you go, Colby, surprising me again.

Edit Edit: you have a faction called The Benders. There MUST be a spell called "Kiss my shiny metal ass." Do this and I will just mail you my credit cards.

Now I know what the kids can get me for Father's Day.....hint hint

SW is such a fun, fast playing game and the price is certainly right. I finally got on board awhile back when Plaidhat was selling the starter sets for $10 each. After buying the original 2 starter sets, I had to have the premium board and the new factions. Now I am the proud owner of all the sets that are currently out. Come on June, hurry up and get here.
