    The actual game of Ascension is a somewhat refreshing spin on fantasy-based card games in that instead of building a specific deck that you use in battles, you're building your deck on the fly from game to game.

    A clever and tactical game that just lacks the extra features to truly ascend to the top of the deck.

    A unique card battle game with some good ideas, but it lacks the collection part and the design is awful.

It plays fast with easy-to-learn rules and the AI is good enough to be a challenge for casual players. Due to its tactical nature it's important to pay attention to what your opponent is doing and what the cards in the center row have to offer. There is no single strategy with which you can "solve" the game.
