Ascension: Return of the Fallen is the newest set for the popular deck-building game Ascension: Deckbuilding Game. The 65-card Ascension: Return of the Fallen is playable as a 2 player stand-alone game, or can be combined with Ascension: Deckbuilding Game for an expanded game with up to six players. With its 65 all-new cards for the Center Deck, the Return of the Fallen provides players with the ability to face the God Samael in a final battle to determine the fate of Vigil. It also includes a new Fate mechanic that can change the game with a single flip of a card.
Ascension: Deckbuilding Game revolves around a Center Deck containing Heroes, Constructs, and Monsters. Players take turns recruiting Heroes or Constructs for their decks or defeating Monsters to earn honor and ultimate victory. Ascension: Deckbuilding Game joins other deck-building games including Dominion, Thunderstone and Resident Evil and Fantasy Flights Living Card Games (Call of Cthuhlu, Warhammer Invasion and Game of Thrones) as a new category of games that continue to increase in popularity. These games combine complexity of combat-focused card game experience with the benefit of not having to chase powerful randomly distributed, blindly-packaged cards.
For those of you who haven't had the opportunity to be a part of the Ascension playtesting groups, I thought I would create a faux-expansion for you to play with until Return of the Fallen comes out (or, heck, even after that game comes out).
