The buzz is building for some of Plaid Hat Games' upcoming releases!

You've been reading our Specter Ops previews, of course. (You have, right???) That game is getting closer on the boat, so there's not much time left to pre-order!

Meanwhile, Zee Garcia of the Dice Tower recently featured two more of our upcoming games, interviewing Plaid Hat Games Lead Game Designer Isaac Vega at the GAMA trade show, a convention for members of the Game Manufacturing Association.

AshesFirst is Ashes, which is aiming for a GenCon release. This 2-4 player customizable game takes place in the world of the Phoenixborn, powerful magic wielders who are fighting to become gods. Each deck is infinitely customizable, and you can also build a pool of the custom dice that come with the game. Six Pheonixborn are included out of the box each with their own deck. With base deck, customized deck and draft deck formats as well, this back-and-forth game is a deep well to explore. Keep your eye out for tons of info on Ashes in the next few months right here at PlaidHatGames.com leading up to its release.

Second is Tail Feathers. Taking place in the Mice and Mystics universe, it's mice and rats. On birds. Fighting each other. We're talking bird miniatures, and mice miniatures on top of them that can be switched in and out, both with their own abilities and skills. Pure awesomeness.

Isaac mentioned playtesting in the video. We are now using the Plaid Hat Corps to source our playtesting, and its been great for everyone involved. If you want a chance to apply for our next playtesting opportunity, make sure you're signed up for the Plaid Hat Corps, and you'll get an e-mail when it happens.

Enjoy the video below!

I'm curious as to what the deck size is in ashes, how many of each card you can have in your deck, and how many of each card comes in the game. Will I need to be buying more than one core set? I hope not. Please don't make me buy 3 of them like WH40K Conquest did :P

I am so incredibly excited for Ashes. Am I correct in understanding that draft play only requires one box? If so, that is truly brilliant move! I can wait for more previews (and the full rules)!

So, since Ashes is headed for a GenCon debut - any chance there'll be Ashes release tournaments?

So is Ashes similar to the Master Set of Summoner Wars, where you have 6 prebuilt decks for 6 Phoenixborn? Or can you mix cards in between them?

joepinion commented:

In Ashes you can put most of the cards in any deck. But otherwise yes it's like Summoner Wars in that you ahve 6 full complete decks (not like Netrunner where you have a set of cards you have to put with each other one).

@Tortugatron, Ashes deck size is 30 cards, you can have up to 3 copies of each card in your deck. I don't believe there will be rarity in the base box like netrunner, and there are TONS of deckbuilding combos...I'm super psyched!!!

30 card decks with a preset starting hand? Wow, way to cut down variance issues, this game keeps getting more exciting - this sounds like the kind of game I can get my LCG-averse friends to play!

Okay just like W40K Conquest, will there be must have cards that should go in every deck? I hate that part about Conquest.
