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”.
