The Laws of Lions and The Song of Soaksend are two new deluxe expansions for the 2016 expandable card game, Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn by Isaac Vega. The expansions are also designed by Vega and are slated to come out at this year’s Gen Con. Ashes is an absolutely amazing head-to-head card game where each player takes a Phoenixborn and either their pre-constructed deck or build one around the character.
The players will actually roll ten dice of different colors which will become the manna that they use to bring out units or cast spells during the round. Each player will take a turn and then the next player will follow up with their action and this will continue each round until both players pass with no other actions they want/can take.
This game is in my top of 2-players games of all time (although you can play with up to 4 people with it) and thus I am exited to see more expansions coming out. I even have both the French and English boxes of this game.
Both of these expansions really look interesting because they are bringing two new colors of dice to the mix and that will just add more interest and variability to an already amazing game. I can’t wait to try these decks out!
