    Default And so ends one year of Summoner Wars for me...

    So yeah. On February 7th, it'll have been one year since I first bought Summoner Wars. It's been a crazy ride thus far, I'll say.

    Some quick numbers after one year:
    - I've played 874 regular games, 224 of that on VASSAL.
    - I've played 159 custom faction games.
    - I've played 441 solo games ("Theory Wars"), consisting of 108 solo regular games, 209 custom games, and 134 with a mix on both.
    - I've introduced 78 different people to Summoner Wars, over three continents.

    Some crazy experiences along the way:
    - I've been killed in the TO's first turn by a Fighter when I played as the Cave Goblins (I went first).
    - I've killed Grognack with Rahlee using Precise twice.
    - I've killed a Summoner and discarded the last card in that player's hand at the same time using Raechel once.
    - I got to summon Sairook four times in one game as the Deep Dwarves.
    - I had a winning streak of 13 games at one point in VASSAL, while my biggest losing streak is 19 games.
    - I had a game where I rolled 1s or 2s 82% of the time, and I won that one. (I wasn't playing PE.)
    - I had a one-wound Tacullu go up against Grognack, Summoner to Summoner. He finally killed me after I brought Grognack down to one life (from seven).
    - I did a turn with the Cave Goblins where I used Goblin Horde Attack, Goblin Rage, and proceeded to hit five different targets with a boost of +2 or greater, all double-attacked.
    - I killed seven Units with Walls of Ice Shards at one time.
    - I've gotten killed by the Phoenix Elves without having an auto-wound inflicted on any of my Units five times.
    - I've finished games with a Freeze left on a Summoner and no other Units of that side left to face six times; two against, four for.
    And finally,
    - I've never lost a game with Shadow Elves that I didn't have a Shadows in hand to "whisk away Selundar" to fight another day. (Yes, I know Shadows isn't legal on Selundar; it's an inside joke.)

    Discouting solo games,
    - The faction I've used the most is the Cave Goblins: 386 times.
    - The custom faction I've used the most is the Planes Kingdom: 42 times.
    - The faction I've used the least is the Mountain Vargath: 11 times.
    - The custom faction I've used the least is the Draconic Shamans: 8 times.

    Favorites:
    - My favorite faction is the Cave Goblins, no doubt. They literally throw themselves hard into their battles.
    - My favorite custom faction is the Plaid Hats, for obvious reason. Who wouldn't want to "play with" the playtesters?
    - My favorite regular game matchup is the Swamp Orcs vs. Sand Goblins. Whose trickery reigns supreme?
    - My favorite custom matchup is, again, Plaid Hats vs. Rios Clan. Playtesters are fun to play with, what can I say? Draconic Shamans vs. Lawful Magistrates are a close second. "We call forth our sleeping dragon..." "We say no."

    Custom Factions:
    - As of right now, I have 25 complete factions (though some without reinforcements) to my name.

    First Batch (aka not very good)
    - Scrap Machinery (name keeps changing)
    - Mage Brotherhood
    - Guardian Dwarves
    - Urban Goblins
    - Bladed Elves
    - Bedouin Orcs
    - Forest Manyaro
    - Wild Krackits

    Second Batch
    - Draconic Shamans
    - Vast Illyiet
    - Woodland Cult
    - Bodyguards
    - The Origin
    - Lawful Magistrates

    Factions Drawn from 3rd party material
    - Slime Family
    - Slime Family [Second Summoner]
    - Masters of Orion
    - Enigmatic Quesha
    - Sengoku Era
    - Wise Kingdom
    - Fool's Empire

    Playtester-Oriented Factions
    - Plaid Hats
    - Rios Clan
    - Forsaken Gods
    Here's to another year of Summoner Wars and Plaid Hat Games!
    The night's shadow exists, not sleeping at all,
    The toil of the light is its only call,
    Behind the scenes lurking with shadowy gall,
    Its face never showing; height never too tall.

    Without a cry wherein dissent finds respite,
    The multitudes safer in the billowing light,
    More likely than not to strike evil at night,
    Then silently vanishing to be out of sight.

    Wow! That's certainly a lot of Summoner Wars! If i would just remember to update my games, I'd have a number too, but nothing like 800.

    I can bet that there will be more experiences to come. Everyone has their own reason for playing Summoner Wars: for me, it's the experience.

    I like seeing who has this much experience over just posts. Lets me know who's advice is true rather than typical forums "talk".

    Bumping this because this iOS app is going to dramatically boost my number of plays. I just barely cracked 1200 a couple of days ago, but I got in 22 today, which is much more than I used to do when I was playing this IRL heavily. Thanks to this, I might be able to actually reach 2,000 games on my second year. Who knows?

    Those numbers are pretty crazy tns. Hopefully we'll get an in-person game at GC against each other.

    I think I have something around 200-300 games, but I really have no idea. I should get on Vassal more though, that will get a lot more games in and practice. Also had a short but successful SW gameday with my bro and friends today, and I decided it would be awesome if we had a set day out of the week to play SW, like every Sunday. That way my friends can get a grasp on more and more cards that are new to them in games. That would get me some more in person games for sure.
