About

Welcome to the Summoners Kickstarter page.

Summoners is a dueling card game where you cast spells and summon pets. A theme found in many of our favorite collectible card games. The difference between this game and the others is the use of miniatures on a game board. These miniature pets have unique abilities, attack patterns, health, and movement. Games can be played in 10-15 minutes for 2 or 4 players. (See the rules pdf in the gameplay section to learn the features of this game)

In the core box each summoner class has a specific themed spell deck. The goal of this campaign is to also unlock stretch goals that will create a deck of neutral spell cards that can be used to customize a players deck to their play style.

Several of the illustrations are still high quality sketches and will be polished during the campaign and before production.

WIth day 1 pop goals If we fund on launch day 6 neutral spell cards will be added to the core set.

Rule Book

2 Game Boards (double sided, different theme for each of the 4 summoners)

40 Plastic Miniatures (16 unique sculpts, all on 1" bases between 35mm-50mm tall)

100 Spell Cards (25 spells in each deck)

32 Mana Cards

30 Punch Tokens (health and ability)

4 Plastic Character Sheets (5" x 8")

The Elementalist uses her summoning powers to call forth pets created from the elements. Her deck is used to deal quick damage, incorporating fast pets and control spells.

The Necromancer knows the skill of raising the dead. His deck consists of spells that enhance his pets and keep the Necromancer alive.

The Beastmaster has tamed many wild beasts to his control. His deck uses his monkeys in combination with his abilities to do devastating damage.

The two remaining Beastmaster pets will be created by backers or voted by backers.

The Warlock sold her soul a long time ago. The demonic pact she's formed with her pets is unbreakable and she uses her deck to draw quickly, curse enemy pets, and maintain a link between her health and her pets.

The two remaining Warlock pets will be created by backers or voted by backers.

Example Spell & Mana Cards

3D Prints

These are prototypes I printed myself. The detail is hard to see with white resin but they came out pretty cool, can't wait to see the custom molded ones from the manufacturer using a dark colored hard plastic, the detail should be great.

What about Kickstarter Exclusives you ask? Well as with my other games, I'm not a big game company and the games I produce aren't made with retail in mind, so this entire campaign is essentially a KS exclusive.

INFO: 2 or 4 players, 10-15 minutes per game. 

HOOK: High quality miniatures, fast paced gameplay, each card is its own piece of art.

BRIEF OVERVIEW: Summoners is a spell casting, card dueling board game. Players choose a summoner to command and duel head to head. Summoners all have their own unique abilities to use along with a spell deck of 25 cards. Each Summoner has 4 unique pets that they control. Gain mana to cast summoning spells and bring your pets to the game board or cast other spells to deal damage, enhance pets, or heal your summoner.

There are four summoner classes and each starts with 20 health. Attack with your pets or cast your spells cards to take your opponent's summoner to zero health. If you've played any CCG's such as Magic, Game of Thrones, or Star Wars, the dueling wizard mechanics will be familiar to you.

WIN: The first player to take their opponent's summoner to zero health wins.

This game is going to weigh around 4 lbs. once packaged and even more when we break into stretch goals. I'm trying to keep shipping costs as low as possible.

          

Risks and challenges

Risks should be minimal. I've already delivered three solid campaigns in the past 4 months. The artwork is nearly done, The sculpts are all finished aside from the possible backer designed miniatures. I have a manufacturing company ready to go so let's get this funded quick.

Thanks for the support everyone.
