The story of the Phoenixborn is a little tragic. Phoenixborn are powerful humans who developed magical powers to drive back the chimera threat. They unified to cleanse the planet and worked together to restore peace and usher in a new golden age for humanity. However, their individual powers later sought to come together and in doing so, they would need to fight one another – until there could be only one.
Ashes – Rise of the Phoenixborn from Plaid Hat Games is a tactical, turn-based, expandable card game for 2-4 players. The core set was recently released to critical acclaim for its innovative new approach to the genre. Early previews were very encouraging and so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.
