I've always been intrigued by this game, but have never bought or played the physical version, because I don't know anyone that would play this kind of game with me.

But now that the iOS app is DAYS away (maybe even out already by the time you read this), I will finally get to play it. If you are in the same situation and the app will be your first time playing this game, let us know by replying in this topic.

Maybe we can get some "noob" games going and learn this thing together before we get pounded online by the vets.

Not out yet, hopefully soon. Tonight or early tomorrow would be nice, I'm riding down to Florida tomorrow afternoon and it would be a great way to help the time go by. Normally it only takes us about 7.5-8 hours but this is the first time we'll be traveling with a 17-month-old so I expect that to shoot up to more like 10 hours.

It'll be my first foray into this game too, just it was my first time playing Magic last week, with the new app.

A great time to have an iPad!

I'll be a first time player myself, though I've almost bought the master set several times.

First time as well! It was on my "check this out" list, and iOS seems like a great way to do that before investing in the hard copy ...

I was very close to buying this game when the Master Set came out. But I knew that because the game is primarily a 2P game it would not get played much in my game group. I have been very excited for it ever since the iOS version was announced and I just held off buying the physical version because of it.

I've waffled on buying the paper version a few times, but never actually took the plunge. I've heard so much good about it that I'll probably give the iOS app a go at the price point it's likely to launch at.

The price point for the app itself is actually going to be free, and will come with one faction that you can play against the AI. Other factions are IAP, and buying at least one will unlock asynch online play.

Never played before, but heard some much good stuff about it. I'll stick to the iphone unless the game REALLY impresses me. For example I've got the ios ascension game and wouldn'T consider buying the tabletop version, which would take 1 hour to play rather than 10 minutes.

I fall in this category as well. Day 1 purchaser of the iOS app, but not an owner of the physical board game.

Yeah, I am a long-time listener (Plaid Hat Podcast), first-time player.

Been looking forward to this app coming out for a while and can't wait to actually play the game I've heard about for so long on the PH Podcast. I know they've mentioned on their podcast they couldn't imagine anyone listening who hadn't owned or at least played the game, but we people exist. If I get hooked on this game on the iOS platform, I'm sure I'll be buying the Master Set IRL as well.

Well, got to go check the App store again.

Yes. However I have watched enough play vids to have convinced myself that my son and I will enjoy the paper version as well. Not to mention my gaming buddies.

Seriously lookin forward to my first play through.

went into a board/card game buying frenzy and this game was in the mix..until I found out it was coming out for iOS. It'll be my first time playing this game too! Keeping busy with Ascension and M13 on the iPad at the moment.
GameCenter ID is jefflovv if anyone fancies a game of either!

I'll be giving Summoner Wars a shot for the first time upon iOS release. Been following the game on and off for awhile now but never pulled the trigger because of lack of opponent and opportunity.

Am I the only one who is not able to start the game?

The game just refuses to start (the screen fades to black in a split of second then nothing happens).

My iPhone version worked fine. iPad (1st gen) had that problem, though. I killed the app and did a hard re-start and then it worked fine. Not ideal, but better than nothing.

How do you kill apps/processes and make a "hard" restart?
