Summoner war is an exciting action-packed card game that puts you in the grandiose role of a Summoner. This is a digital card game coming from developer Playdeck, Inc that instantly became popular and gained a large base of online fans. Since its first release in 2009 it received critical acclaim from a variety of board game review sites. Summoner war is a very simple game, but the various factions and unit types make this game a perfect mix of easy rules and compelling depth.
In Summoner war you are given the role of a Summoner with incredible powers that will help you call powerful creatures and allies in your battle against opposing Summoners. In order to win at this game, you will have to be the only one left with a Summoner card. As a player you are able to control the Phoenix Elves faction and battle against all opponents or go online where you can play against others. Call walls of stone to protect you in combat and help you summon your warriors. In the game’s in-app store you can find nine additional factions such as Tundra Orcs, Guild Dwarves and Cave Goblins with each faction offering unique play and requiring players to adapt to the special strategy of each faction. If you want to take the game to the next level, a deck editor will allow you to select the cards into their factions and reinforcements and that way build a custom deck to play with. If you change the cards, the game play will change meaning that this game is completely customizable.
The game play tutorial is fantastic for it prepares the players for every aspect of the game. Having a strategy will help you to shape the composition of each deck of cards and how they are used while tactics will determine the effectiveness of those cards in a battle.
What makes Summoner War outstanding and makes a case of the superiority of digital board games is its multiplayer. The revolutionary design is in its asynchronous play. It’s up to the players to determine how much time they can have to play out their turns, just like a chess clock. If a player’s timer hits zero, they lose. If you want to micromanage several games at a time on a leisurely pace there are time options that extend anywhere from short sessions to two weeks.
As long as two players are online at the same time, they can complete their game in real time no matter of the extra time that’s left on their clock. All we can say is that the system, for lack of any other word, is perfect.
Summoner War has a price point for a full buy-in, but it is free to try and has a flexible IAP system meaning that it’s more than worth to check out. This game is likely to become the flagship title in the case for digital board games. It has a perfect multiplayer, it’s prettier, it’s less hassle. This is a must-buy for every fan of strategy games and even if you are not, Summoner War is free to try, so you have nothing to lose.
