Free people of the Great Empire, we have undergone so many fights, so many power-greedy leaders, and so much cruelty. While threats are growing from everywhere, the Supreme Citizen wants to initiate our Ascension in order to bring peace, wisdom, and prosperity to the other Empires! Expand your game to six players and introduce FOUR new card types to your base game of It’s a Wonderful World. From now on, each turn, you will play a mixture of classic Development cards and new Ascension cards. Corruption cards appear in every Empire, destroying resources and spoiling production, but with the right tools, Corruption may eventually serve your schemes. Super Production cards won’t be easy to build, but they can make all the difference in the race for productivity. The greatest of achievements are held in Master Projects, but can you build an Empire capable of constructing one? Finally, Pair-Scoring cards will benefit Empires who take two development paths, splitting their focus and reaping the rewards. Ascension & Corruption adds a host of diversity and complexity to gameplay and opens up exciting challenges for the players who are will to risk it all.
