The West: Ascendant is the second card game set in the world of The North: Provenance. Two players take turns acquiring unique Facilities for effects (and to cause the other player to lose points). Those acquired Facilities are then used for a variety of different in-game scoring opportunities and to acquire new cards.

The West: Ascendant combines set collection and hand management, with a multiple scoring avenues, in a 30 minute card game for two.

During the game, players take turns acquiring Facility cards and playing the cards they've acquired several ways. The game play is driven by the Turn Sequence card, which is passed back and forth throughout the game. As the game is played, players lose points, acquire new cards for their hand or Zone (play area), and score points at the end of the game for the cards in their Zone. Additionally, players lose points at the end of the game for the unused Facility cards in their hand.
