Description Edit | History

Ascension: Deckbuilding Game — originally released as Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer — is a fast-paced deck-building game designed by Magic: The Gathering Pro Tour champions Justin Gary, Rob Dougherty, and Brian Kibler, with artwork by Eric Sabee.

Ascension is a deck-building game in which players spend Runes to acquire more powerful cards for their deck. It offers a dynamic play experience where players have to react and adjust their strategy accordingly. Each player starts with a small deck of cards, and uses those cards to acquire more and better cards for their deck, with the goal of earning the most Honor Points by gaining cards and defeating monsters.

13 Mo's Realms Solo Variant
This is a solitaire variant inspired by the official solo rules of the game Star Realms, The Nemesis Beast. This variant should work with any iteration (or combination) of the Ascension line of games. Thanks to the encouragement and help from user, garyrbrooks, who created this file. We hope you enjoy it. English Rules, v1.0 Edit 29-Dec-2014: Corrected Gary's username spelling.

2 Quick Play Summary
This doesn't have all the rules on it but it's just the bits which I need to remember when starting the game with expansions. It also includes the expansion icons for all expansions up to Darkness Unleashed. It's very basic but I hope it's useful to someone.

4 Ascension Tuckboxes
These are my updated homemade tuckboxes for Ascension. They are designed to hold UNSLEEVED cards from CoG, RotF, SoS, all year one promos, and six starter decks. There are a total of five tuckboxes: 3 ea that hold 100 portal cards, 1 ea that holds 59 always available cards, and 1 ea that holds 35 promo cards. They are designed on 10" x 14" paper (similar to size A3). This was the only way to create tuckboxes to hold 100 cards each. Thanks for looking!
