Two new ready-to-play Ashes decks for Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn are available for pre-order from Plaid Hat Games. Each deck is available separately and is a mono deck using a single color of dice. These decks may be mixed with the base set and previous expansions for custom deck construction. Both expansions will be available at Gen Con on a limited basis, and are expected to have their regular release soon after. If you’re planning on picking this up at Gen Con, I’d make the Plaid Hat Games booth an early stop because this could sell out very quickly.
The Roaring Rose deck, with new Pheonixborn Leo Sunshadow contains 42 cards and requires 10 Charms (pink) dice to play. Leo’s special ability allows him to summon a Glow Finch as a side action. This gives the player a huge amount of strategic options for how to use his other units. His Unique card make your opponent choose between lose of life or lose of cards in hand and dice in action pool.
