A lot.

Congrats, and I'm super excited about mine showing up soon.

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

Yeah, not a bad endorsement there at all eh?

Played a game of SW with my son last night and we used our new custom dice for the first time. We loved it, added another layer of theme (at least for us). I went back online today to get the rest of the sets but they're already sold out.

truth, any chance you're going to be selling more of them?

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

Truth,
Just last Wednesday I recieved my first Summoner wars. I recieved the Guild Dwarves, Caves Goblins, Vanguards, and Fallen Kingdom from another person. Since then, myself and my two cousins have basically become addicted. My cousin learned the game, and the next day edited the Guild Dwarves deck so that he beats me EVERY SINGLE TIME! Incredible. I absolutely love the game so much and plan to buy everything eventually.

I do have a couple of questions however.

1: It's likely been asked already, but when will the Master Set actually start shipping. Both myself and my cousin really want one, and can't wait to play the new factions.

2: Will more of the original starters become available? I am attempting to find the Tundra Orcs and Pheonix Elves wherever I can, but so far no luck.

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

Congratulations on the addiction, scapemage921.

As far as the Master Set is concerned, it has already begun shipping and should be available directly from plaidhatgames.com or, in some cases, your local FLGS, depending on whether they stock Summoner Wars or not.

As far as question #2, I think some of the Starter Sets may be reissued a bit down the road, depending on Master Sets sales, if I recall correctly. Again, check your local gaming store, as they may have them in stock now. I've had good luck in that department here locally.

Hope that helps.

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

I think there is some confusion, and I suffer from it as well. But I think it arises from the fact that plaidhatgames.com still lists the Master Set as a pre-order item, that will not ship.

Maybe this display is just outdated, but I saw it when I was looking through the store.

Must be.

I do not know. All I know is that I have my copy in hand and have had it for several weeks now.

I would guess that the display is most likely outdated with truth and company having to prepare for Gencon and not having much time to update the website. But that's just a guess.

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

Sweet! I'm going to order first thing tomorrow then! That is great news! Sadly I doubt my FLGS will have any, because although they sell Heroscape I don't think they know Summoner Wars exists.

Well then Scapemage, it's your job to make sure your FLGS knows Summoner Wars exists. I bugged my FLGS owner right after the game was first released and he finally got it in and then the other factions packs. I'm sure he'll get the Master Set in as soon as he can get them.

I am actually planning to run a tournament at the store... if they stock it it will be awesome!

So tomorrow morning, I'll be ordering the Master Set, Jungle Elves, and Cloaks. I will have to borrow some money until I get my paycheck next week, so if for some reason I can only get one, should I buy the Cloaks or the Jungle Elves? I also want Goodwin's Blade only to make the Vanguards more competitive, but I'm not sure if that will be in the same order.

Ha, ha, ha. That's like asking 'apples or oranges'?

They both play differently and I guess it would depend on your playstyle. JE are agressive, in-your-face, hard hitting and quick. Cloaks are more duplicitous, sneaky and manipulative.

I also think that the JE are much more straightforward and somewhat easier to play than the Cloaks, but that for sure is a personal opinion.

The bottom line is that, if you're addicted to the game like I am, you'll end up getting them both sooner or later anyway.

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

Well I've had some good experience with the Jungle Elves, as has my nephew. And the Cloaks didn't have a good first showing vs. the Dwarves, but then they did a number on my Jungle Elves. Those 2 Assassination cards from the Cloaks are brutal against the Jungle Elves' Lioneers.

Jungle Elves are fast and aggressive, the Cloaks take a little more finesse and timing. When the one Cloak can bring another one adjacent to the defending figure if it wasn't killed, that's a brutal thing, especially when the other Cloak is their Summoner borrowing the powers of the one that can bring him adjacent to the defending figure.

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

Actually, it's true. The master sets are still a pre-order. There is a second shipment for the pre orders going out very soon, but it still hasn't been changed to a normal order because there still aren't any that Truth has that aren't either A. Already spoken for or B. Slated to go to gencon.

It's a good sign though- far more people are buying than expected!

(someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I've been following on PHG and that's my understanding)
