Ashes of Creation board game

An Ashes of Creation board game is scheduled for release at around the time of the MMORPG Beta phase.[3]

Just to be clear, a board game doesn’t impact any mmo development. They are 2 very different sets of employees.[16]Steven Sharif

It is a resource management and combat game with an action economy.[3]

  • Each player chooses a Class and attempts to build a Guild that takes over a server on Ashes of Creation.[3]
  • The more guild members, the more action tokens the guild will receive. These tokens can be spent on actions on the game board and during battles.
  • Guilds gain income by constructing Caravans.
  • Players have a pool of resources that they keep secret.
    • Followers.
    • Gold.
    • Combat resource (gained from guilds participating in PvP).

There are several types of combat in the game.[3]

  • Attacking caravans.
  • Arenas (instanced).
  • Guild wars.
  • Raid bosses.
    • Attacking a raid boss makes the game co-op. Other guilds can then join in to fight the boss.
    • The raid boss' level is based on the level that the game board is at.

The game comes as a complete set with an adjustable map that players construct every game.[3]

  • The map is comprised of six components that are placed together.
  • The game board is made of of zones that evolve as players complete activities and actions.
  • Over forty different buildings can be built.

There game comes with six standardized characters.[3]

  • Players have a character sheet with tracked abilities and skill levels.
  • As a character levels they become more powerful.

Players compete for server firsts.[3]

The game is playable by two to five players.[3]

  • The game will last about 30 minutes per player.

There will be expansions, but the base game can be played stand-alone.[3]

  • Expansions will come with additional map tiles with new locations to gain resources from.
    • Map tiles from expansions can be switched out.
  • Expansions come with additional structures.
  • Expansions will have characters that are race-specific to Ashes of Creation.
    • Each race will have certain advantages and abilities.

The game will probably not be funded by Kickstarter.[3]

The estimated retail price is between $50 and $100 US.[3]
