Hey, you got your Ascension in my Star Realms!
So this deckbuilder just got a simultaneous digital release on PC, iOS, and Android. It’s good! The designers of the boardgame are the same folks who designed Ascension, and the four factions will immediately remind you of Mechana, Void, etc - with less cringey artwork. But there is a Star Realms-like component in which you directly attack your opponent and/or their cards, usually with escalating damage.
A few cool innovations: certain cards can be “fast-played”, which means that you use the ability immediately and then trash the card, rather than putting it in your discard pile and waiting for it to show up. It might sound like a waste of resources, but if you are building a green deck but want to thin your deck with a purple card, it’s nice to have the option to use it once without it forever clogging your deck.
Also, there is a Mastery resource that you can build every turn. As it goes up, your cards unlock new powers. When it reaches 30, one of your cards gets the “Instawin” power. An interesting option for people who want to focus on an economic engine instead of damage.
The digital version was developed by Temple Gates Games, who also developed the Race for the Galaxy app. If you liked that UI, then you will be very comfortable with this one.
