Well, people have been chomping at the bit over at BGG waiting for this (including me), and it's finally here!!

Summoner Wars [direct link]

Unfortunately, it's in "unavailable" hell right now.

Seriously, it was submitted almost two weeks ago!  Shut up and take my whatever the meme.

Looks like I'm not one of the lucky 30%.  I get a product unavailable message when trying to download.   icon_frown

Not sure what the problem is. Tried downloading it on my PC, my iPhone, and my wife's iPhone to no avail.

Just got my ass kicked...in the tutorial. icon_redface  They turn you loose to fend for yourself once the initial mechanics are explained, and I got wiped pretty quickly.

Will need to devote some time to figuring this one out.

I downloaded it this afternoon, and after figuring out how to start a single player game I realized I had no clue what to do.  I didn't realize there were tutorials, but I just found them in the menu.  I have a feeling that this is going to be one that I put aside for when I get around to getting an iPad though.

Yeah, I was able to download it at around 8 or so last night.  Then I had 3 more hours before I could download any factions.

Oh I screwed up a few phases too.  It really needs an undo. I understand why they don't have it on the attack phase because of the dice rolls but they should let you roll everything back until you make your first attack.  Also, can't believe they still dont have in-game chat for their games.

And you make me laugh too.

I can't decide what's the most amusing: beating Hark on round 2, him throwing a game he clearly was going to win, or Kato killing his own summoner.

Man, I've tried 3-4 times to get into this and I just can't manage to dredge up much interest for it.  It should be right up my alley (I typically love anything that combines fantasy and strategy), but SW just leaves me completely cold for some reason.  Wish I could put my finger on why.  frown

Have you tried the physical game?  For me, there's a disconnect that happens with the iOS version, and I think it has to do with needing to take the extra step of clicking on the cards to see what they do.  I'm nt sure why that's an issue, though, since even IRL I have to pick up the cards to remember, but I definitely enjoy the physical game more.

I still like the iOS version, though.

I actually gave Dragon's Dogma another look (had to after hearing all the praise everyone kept heaping on it) and have been really enjoying it.  Must have just been in a bad mood the first go 'round.  smile

Yeah, I love the iOS board games but nothing beats sitting down around a table with a group of friends and playing on a large board with pieces you can easily read.  I view iOS board games as handy substitutes, but they'll never replace the real thing in my book.

I am very much addicted to this game.  Unlike the other games I don't feel like I'm playing 'chicken' with my opponent.  It feels more like chess.

Loving it.
