Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

It looks like there is a second Master Set coming out with 8 decks and they will all be hybrid factions. Here is the discussion on PHG's website: http://www.plaidhatgames.com/sum_for...-in-the-future

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

Recent mentions of Summoner Wars and Heroscape on The Dice Tower's YouTube channel:

At 4:18-5:50 on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnZM2oDBqrg during their "Top Ten Strategic Two Player Games" topic [published on Mar 14, 2014], all three reviewers included Summoner Wars on their personal lists (as #2 for Tom Vasel, #1 for Sam Healey, and #7 for Zee Garcia). Only reviewer Sam Healey included Heroscape on his personal list, as #10. Healey cited long set-up times as a detriment to Heroscape. At 29:59, Tom Vasel references Heroscape when he talks about Duel of Ages II as his #4.

At 38:00-40:32 on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhfD3Rp5lNg during their "Top Ten Games That Murdered Other Games" topic [published on Apr 10, 2014], reviewer Zee Garcia declared Heroscape as his #3 pick on the list, murdered by Summoner Wars. During the clip, Garcia was presented with a plaid hat by Tom Vasel.

The Dice Tower crew have always been huge fans of Heroscape and PlaidHat. I got to play Tom Vasel in Heroscape a few years back and wiped the floor with him. I used Mohicans.

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

Cool.

I really like Tom's reviews, and I think it's because he and I have similar tastes. I don't think SW "murdered" Heroscape, though they do scratch a very similar itch. Heroscape, with its painted minis and colorful terrain, is more theme-y, and is more flexible with easy options for 3 player and scenario play that are not so simple in SW.

On a (mostly) unrelated note, we have Yomi, which I like, but we just traded for BattleCON: Devastation of Indines, which looks like it might murder the heck out of Yomi. That's ok, we got our money's worth out of it.

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

I'm pretty certain Tom would not ever list Summoner Wars as murdering Heroscape (Zee though would, of course).

Tom is much more into Scape as a bigger thing, I think. He came up for a tourney and had some fun, but I think he likes bigger maps, multi-player, hodge podge play. That was the sense I got, anyway.

I'm not sure he thinks of it as a "two-player game."

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

Summoner Wars wouldn't exist without Heroscape. Colby stands on the shoulders of kyrie.

PHG in its current form owes a lot of its existence to the community fostered on this website.

Hey if any of you are in the Dallas Fort Worth area and want to play in a Summoner Wars tourney then you should check out this event on FB. It's free to entry and there are some pretty good prizes being offered up.

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

Hello Fello Scapers/Summoner wars players.
I was hoping you may be able to help me out.
I am on the look out for two Summoner wars decks I can not find local to me in NY.

I am Looking for the Fallen Kingdom Faction deck ( that includes Ret-Talus )
I am also looking for The Filth Faction Deck.

It would be awesome if anyone could help me locate these two decks. Thanks.


You shall not pass!

Re: Summoner Wars by Plaid Hat Games

Both are out of stock at CSI and Miniature Market. I saw a Filth on Amazon but the guy was gouging people by charging $30 for it.


Might just have to wait until they get back in stock at those places, unless someone can find them in a local game store and mail them to you.


Looking at the Plaid Hat site, several of the SW stuff is getting reprinted and sent from China, so if you can wait, they will be available again.
