Ashes: Rise Of The Phoenixborn
« on: October 09, 2015, 06:17:39 PM »
Been grokking the pre-release hype about this head-to-head card game, and it just started shipping to retailers. 

At first, Ashes looks like some MtG clone in LCG format, with some small mechanical additions such as resource dice.  But the more I see of it, the more I dig the different mechanics (and, of course, not being of the "Collectible" type).  Having to manage the casting resources from your dice pools looks like a lot of fun.

Then I watched Marco's video review.  We all know how this ended.  With me pre-ordering it from CSI.  I think Rodney did some 'Watch It Played' vids on it too.

I know Plaid Hat has shown it off at more than one Con this year.  Anyone happen to check it out?  I believe there is a tentative Tabletop Simulator module for it.. not sure about a Vassal one, haven't checked yet.
