    "I enjoyed playing the board game so decided to download this to play. It is even more fun since I now live on my own and it is hard to get others to play board games. You get the same challenges and enjoyment but you don't have to have a group to play. The design is the same as the board game and play is easy and interactive. I still play all the time and am so happy I got this game."

    ""Ascension" reminds me a a lot of the "Magic the Gathering" game. You collect cards, each with there own individual characteristics. If you are into a game that have mythological creatures, this is it! Personally not my cup of tea, however the idea is intriguing."
