Let’s Play Ascension – Rise of the Vigil @ascensiongame

I’m back!

I’ve been waiting for a good chance to get together and play some games! My best friend @jacery855 came to visit us at our new home and we managed to squeeze a few Ascension games in. I had a mission to win, as he had been undefeated with this new set – Rise of the Vigil.

A lot has happened in the world of gaming in the past several months. Kickstarter is becoming an amazing jump start opportunity for board games. Ascension is making a transition to a better digital platform and is coming to us as Ascension Online promising to surpass the IoS version produced by Playdek.

Be sure to check out all the details here:

Not the ideal hand for turn one this time. Truth Seeker seems to be the number one pick here on turn one. However, with only 3 runes our options are limited. The construct is decent but most games you only net one card from this. Although, it could be worth buying to help fuel cards down the line:

Magnet Monk

Treasure hunter can be beneficial in this set, sometimes jumping up and essentially counting as three power and is slightly better than buying a Heavy Infantry. This leaves the final option of buying a Mystic and killing the Cultist.

Remember though that this set does have a monster that you can kill for 2 power and it helps with the theme of this set: Energy.

Serpent Siren

There are several options here. You are unlikely to grab that Truth Seeker the following turn. Knowing the next turn you will have five runes to spend, I would recommend buying that construct and hoping for the Siren to turn up instead of buying a Mystic. This leaves you the option of buying a Mystic and the Treasure Hunter the following turn if nothing better turns up on the board.
