Posting on behalf of BoardGameGeek. Can't wait to see all the great Summoner action!
Woo hoo! This is the culmination of my master plan! I am pleased to announce the BGG Summoner Wars Digital Showdown 2014. This 16 person digital tournament will use Playdek’s new organized play system and will be streamed on Twitch!
