7 things about life I learned from the game Ascension – Part 7

7. Sometimes it really is just the luck of the draw

One of the things that you have to remember is that Ascension is a card game, and therein lies an inherent element of randomness. This can be mitigated and controlled to some extent but invariably there will be situations in which there are no good plays or there are amazing plays that materialize for the opponent.


Sometimes this will happen, and sometimes it won’t happen for you.


Take a deep breath, take a swig of beer, and lean back and bask in the absurdity of the thing that just transpired. Learn to appreciate that ridiculous mega-turn the winning player had. There’s always next time, and there’s always tomorrow for you to take a mega-turn and run away with everything.
