Ready yourself for Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn, the breathtaking first release in our newest expandable game system from acclaimed designer Isaac Vega.
Featuring visionary art by Fernanda Suarez, Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn introduces the world of Argaia, where powerful Phoenixborn have saved humanity and now face off against each other to claim ultimate godhood.
Choose from six Phoenixborn in this set, using imaginative cards and custom dice to summon faithful allies, combine powerful spells, and outwit your opponents in a fast-paced back and forth barrage of well-crafted magic and strategic skill.
Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn brings a pile of unique twists to the customizable card game genre, putting the control of the powerful Phoenixborn into the hands of the players. Here are a few stand-outs:
Choose your first hand! The First Five mechanic allows players to start the game with five cards of their choice giving them a solid footing in the direction they intend their deck to work.
Use dice as resources! The Dice Pool mechanic gives players the resources that they need to bring out powerful spells and creatures moments after the game begins, while still offering an interesting array of powers on their own.
Unique back and forth gameplay! The Player Turns system allows players to choose their targets carefully and consistently plan their strategy around their opponent’s upcoming actions. Turns consist of short actions that keep players engaged and allow for adjustments in play as the round progresses.
Ashes also offers 3 exciting ways to play, giving players endless variety inside 1 box:
Choose a deck and jump right in! 6 Phoenixborn included, each with a pre-built deck and assigned dice, lets you start playing quickly.
Build your own deck! With 247 cards and 40 custom dice included, this box alone contains billions of build options.
Draft a deck! A group of players can build customized decks together in minutes with the deck drafting rules.

Duelling card games with a fantastical theme is a crowded space over which Magic the Gathering has long reigned. But of all such games, Ashes is in my opinion the very, very best. Combining cards and dice in a way that actually minimises luck, Ashes has many unique features. A 30-card draw deck offers consistency and a secondary 'conjuration' deck means you'll never lack the ability to summon a unit during a round. You also pick your opening hand of five cards - so there's no fear of drawing a dud hand. And you start every round with 10 dice, which are used as resources to pay for your cards, so there's no worry that you wont be able to play things. Complementing all of this wonderful game design are sumptuous artwork and rich theme. The same artist, Fernanda Suarez, has provided art for every card in this 'core set' and the first 10 expansion decks. Ashes is also one of the most inclusive games I've ever seen. In the core box, there are more female than male characters to choose from and, while Suarez's depictions of female characters are always beautiful, they are not exploitative. Notably, particularly in the expansion decks, you can see that many different nations and cultures have influenced her designs. I can't praise this game enough.
