Only once you have achieved all three can you take your place among the exalted ranks of the Summoners. Summoner's Isle is a beautifully illustrated, light, portable, area control game. The board folds down to fit into a small box, setup time is minimal and the rules are easy to follow. Whether 2, 3 or 4 players, the gameplay is always tight and enjoyable.
Summoner's Isle is a game of area control and resource management with elements of luck and cunning. Form uneasy alliances, time your strikes well and maybe you'll take the mantle of Summoner for yourself. To win you must attain energy. You do this through battle, through clever positioning of your creatures and by dominating territories. However, summoning creatures costs you energy, so the need to carefully manage your energy reserves will be vital.
