When we first saw the box for Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn at GenCon this year, we immediately took note and added it to our short list of titles worth serious consideration. Any company that cares enough to produce a game as stunning as Ashes – from the box, to the inserts, to the cards and components – likely cares deeply about every other facet of their business. Having already known the beauty of Summoner Wars and observing the culture of Plaid Hat Games over the past few years, we knew that this game was worth every bit of our attention.
On October 1, 2015, we officially added it to our line of supported games, began selling Ashes products, and added it to our Covenant Subscription service. We started hosting monthly Ashes tournaments at Covenant Tulsa, archiving the streams on our Watch page, and added the game to our in-store league.
And now, it is time to kick things to the next level!
Ashes Weekend is a joint event between Plaid Hat Games and Team Covenant, featuring the amazing people behind the game, early Ashes products, stunning alt arts, and exclusive prizes. It is designed for both the laid back and competitive player, with only one goal: celebrate this incredible game.
