Part of The Compass Archive (The North, The South, The East, and The West): a series of two player card games set in a weird, dark future.  Strange machines known as Ancients roam, their tasks forgotten.  Looming Facilities dot the landscape, their potentials unknown.

Each game of these games explores this world using different in-games mechanics, but with overlapping themes of combo building, hand management, and multi-use cards.


Two Players.  30 Minutes.  55 Cards.

​​THE WEST: ASCENDANT is a set collecting game for two players, utilizing multi-use cards and hand management.   


Players will take turns gaining Facilities from the middle of the play area to trigger effects, make Doppelgates, build Loci, and complete Cityengines. 


At the end of the game, the player with the most points wins.
