Are those fun?

Lets say I liked the first two sets and wasn't in love with the second two.

Dawn of Champions ended up being the most fun of all the expansions we've played (we haven't gotten the most recent two yet). It's definitely not the "best" of all the expansions in terms of game design and might even be completely broken, but man... Is it ever fun. It adds a player-specific card and power set and mixes up a lot of the core ideas.

The newest ones seem to have been received well, but at this point I'm skeptical of any Ascension expansion review because the only people buying them are in it for 10 expansions already. That said, the night/day mechanic in Ascension X sounds like it could be really fun.

If you liked the first two specifically for their straightforward simplicity and relative balance, then I'd steer clear of anything more recent.

For solo, Dreamscape tops the charts for me with Dawn of Champions + Realms Unraveled following up in second. Ascension X is third.

That's surprising, I think Storm Of Shadows and Immortal Heroes are the best 2 set of all of Ascension.

Great deal for a physical copy, but the app has ruined the physical copy for me.

The app is a great bang for buck for those interested in a digital version.

As great as the digital implementation is the preview row variant is the only way I'll even consider playing Ascension now and it's unfortunately not an option in the app.

Greatly improves the game by reducing luck and adding interesting decisions. I'd rather play one physical game with a 5x2 preview row than 2-4 games digitally in the same time.

Fixed!

Looks like there was a price mistake but they are still honoring the people who got in on the drop. Good for them! I'm happy too as I was one of those people.

Great news! This was a fantastic price - and these are three sets I need to complete my collection - but I was worried it was too good to be true.

Will have to order more there in the future.
