First Impressions: Ascension: Return Of The Fallen

29 Jun

Ascension: Return of the Fallen hit the mark!  This expansion to the ever popular Ascension: Chronicle Of The Godslayer adds even more depth in the gameplay.

Let me start by saying this expansion includes everything you need to play a 1-2 player game without owning the original game itself.

Yes, you heard me right.  I did say ONE to two players.  You now have the game to play as a solo variation when you are alone or just looking for a cool Solitaire style deck building game.

Today, I played a solo variation (which is included in the rulebook) and it played really well.  It was very balanced.

Components: 120 Cards including 2 start player decks, Heavy Infantry, Mystics, a Cultist card, and the other Heroes, Constructs, and Monsters.  It also includes more of those great looking victory point crystals.

Overview: This expansion now allows you to combine it with the base game and play up to 6 players even team play.  I think this is an awesome concept, and I can’t wait to try out a team play round or two myself.

First Impressions: If you’re looking for a deck building game, this may be the time to purchase.  It costs $29.99 suggested retail and will be a satisfying purchase for the price.

I do recommend you sleeve your cards, because they do get shuffled a lot.  The artwork is really good quality.

I’m hoping that some of the folks in my gaming group that have”fallen” away from playing Ascension will come back and plays some “Ascension: RETURN OF THE FALLEN”.
