This just in! Summoner Wars made it all the way to number 5 in Tom Vasel's top 100 Games of All Time.
Tom makes a special point to mention the simplicity, high number of options, and great theme, and he's spot on with each point. I might add that there are so many options I still haven't mastered the new master set factions because I can never decide which to play. I haven't even managed to play as the Mountain Vargath yet!
I really don't think it could have happened to a better game, although I must admit, I think it deserves to be number 1, but hey, there's always next year.
