WORMWOOD HAS FALLENEvery tribe on Apsyntion has the same origin story - the same apocrypha retold for generations. That once, our people came from the stars.
That their homeworld was lost, swallowed by Wormwood, and the ancestors built the arks in a last desperate gasp, releasing them to the sky like so many seeds in the wind.
That the people of the ark, so roughly deposited on the soil of an alien Eden, fought for the right to rule this new world and remake it in their own image.
WORMWOOD is an expandable card game, where each player controls a burgeoning far-future society at the brink of war. You will build an empire from the ground up, managing civilians and military units while striving to collect Echoes any way you can. Forge them yourself, or steal them from other players - build or conquer, it’s up to you. These relics from humanity’s distant past will ensure your faction prospers, while others fall.APSYNTION is the first set for WORMWOOD, comprising 8 unique Factions which compete for dominance in this new world. Each expansion for the game features a new set of 8 factions and a new planetary setting, which can be played standalone or combined with previous sets.
Combining elements of worker placement and combat games, WORMWOOD offers enormous replayability, with over 240 different cards.
