Two New Deluxe Expansions for Ashes from Plaid Hat

March 9th, 2017

Plaid Hat Games have been very busy lately developing new, deluxe expansions for Ashes, their fantasy card game.

They have announced that there will be two new sets coming out soon. They also give some info about a new organized play kit and a bit of the future of the game.

Well hello, everyone!

I know, I know, I KNOW it has been forever! Sorry to everyone that has been upset about the silence. Believe me, we didn’t want to keep quiet this long, but in order to get things figured out we had to keep details internal for a while.

We have been working with our new parent company – Asmodee – to bring you some new amazing stuff in the Ashes line. The transition has been going great! They have been so awesome and helpful throughout this shift. Everything that we have been doing is really helping to make Plaid Hat Games better, and we couldn’t be happier!

Fan: Enough of the Plaid Hat Asmodee romance… where are my cards!?

Ok, ok! Without further ado, here is what we can announce at this time:

These two Deluxe Expansion Sets are slated for release in late spring / early summer. They’ve also given a look at the new Dice and awesome Storage Boxes for your Ashes sets!

The next OP kit will release alongside “The Law of Lions” and “The Song of Soaksend”. This OP kit will contain enough prize support for four tournaments and this kit will include the alt-art Enchanted Violinist they have promised!

Two new Ashes decks for Pre-Order

June 13th, 2016

Plaid Hat Games has two new decks available for pre-order for Ashes. Pre-order now and get the exclusive Phoenixborn Orrick Gilstream for free!

The Roaring Rose, featuring new Phoenixborn Leo Sunshadow, uses charms dice, supporting your own units and eating through your opponent’s deck.

The Duchess of Deception, featuring new Phoenixborn Victoria Glassfire, is the ultimate illusion deck, manipulating dice and cards and relying on surprise!

Both can be pre-ordered today, and when you order from PlaidHatGames.com, you receive Orrick Gilstream, a new exclusive Phoenixborn with his exclusive ally, Gobi Sunshield. Like Dimona and Lulu before him, Orrick requires a customized deck from other sets to build out his deck and play.

Orrick can also be pre-ordered separately.

Ashes Expansion Decks pre-order open

February 8th, 2016

Plaid Hat Games have opened pre-orders for the Brennen Blackcloud and Rin Northfell expansions for Ahses

Each expansion features a ready to play thematic deck of all new cards. The growing Ashes fan base is ravenous for new cards to deck build with and new decks with new strategies to explore and these products deliver!

When you purchase either of these decks you’ll also get your choice of either the Dimona Odinstar or Lulu Firststone exclusive Phoenixborn for free. You can also pre-order Lulu and Dimona separately.

In addition, they are providing dice for sale in packs of 5 (ceremonial, charms, illusion and natural). Rin uses 10 Natural dice while Brennen uses 10 Ceremonial dice. These are all included in the Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn base set, but if you intend to play every possible Phoenixborn combination using just the dice from 1 base set, you may find purchasing 1 of each of these products useful.

New Ashes Expansion decks on their way in 2016

December 13th, 2015

In late April Plaid Hat Games will release the first Ashes Expansion Decks; The Frostdale Giants and The Children of Blackcloud

“The Frostdale Giants” will be a mono natural magic deck, and “The Children of Blackcloud” will be a mono ceremonial magic deck. Pre-orders will go up in early February.

These decks will kick off  an expansion schedule where they plan release new Ashes decks every 3 months. After the April releases, illusion and charm magic mono decks will be released at GenCon in August. Following that, a box set with 4 decks and two new types of dice, Sympathy and Divine magic, will arrive in November. That will be followed in 2017 by going back to releasing two decks every 3 months, each of which will feature decks that explore combining the old and new dice!

Ashes and Tail Feathers coming from Plaid Hat Games

April 1st, 2015

Plaid Hat Games has announced that they’re working on two new games to be released soon.

First is Ashes, which is aiming for a GenCon release. This 2-4 player customizable game takes place in the world of the Phoenixborn, powerful magic wielders who are fighting to become gods. Each deck is infinitely customizable, and you can also build a pool of the custom dice that come with the game. Six Pheonixborn are included out of the box each with their own deck. With base deck, customized deck and draft deck formats as well, this back-and-forth game is a deep well to explore. Keep your eye out for tons of info on Ashes in the next few months right here at PlaidHatGames.com leading up to its release.

Second is Tail Feathers. Taking place in the Mice and Mystics universe, it’s mice and rats. On birds. Fighting each other. We’re talking bird miniatures, and mice miniatures on top of them that can be switched in and out, both with their own abilities and skills.
