We are big fans of the Ascension deckbuilding game. We have all the sets. When DriveThruCards started letting fans create their own cards, we were thrilled. So thrilled, in fact, that we jumped in and made our own alternate starting cards.
So, what are these alternate starting card you ask? Well, simply put, in the game of Ascension, each player starts off with 8 Apprentice cards and 2 Militia cards. These are all considered Hero cards, but they have no faction, or suit associated with them. Since so many of the expansions in the game have abilities triggerd by playing certain cards with factions, we thought "how cool would it be if you started with cards that had a faction." And that's what we did.
Using their art and card layouts from their custom card creator tool, we have been able to make 10 cards that you use instead of the normal starter cards in the game. Playing with them is fun, and it really ramps up some of those cool faction-based powers.
Go pick up 2 copies of each of the following cards today, and replace your starting cards with these fancy faction-ified ones.
Oh... and then go make your own Ascension cards, too. It is pretty fun.
