Update: The Ascension expansion to It's a Wonderful World is live on Kickstarter, and the campaign will run for 16 days. There are two pledge levels, one just for the expansion, and the 'all-in' that also gets you the Heritage edition of the base game. You may also customize your pledge by adding the campaigns and exclusives from the game's previous Kickstarter.
Our preview post below was published on January 23.
It's a Wonderful World is a 1-5 player card drafting and engine building game about building an empire (developing technology and infrastructure faster than your opponents). An expansion called It's a Wonderful World: Ascension is now planned to launch on Kickstarter on January 28.
The expansion adds new Ascension cards that will be mixed with the Development deck and will modify the rules, plus components for a 6th player. If you already have the retail version of the base game, you will have the option to get the campaigns included in the Heritage edition during this Kickstarter.
The base game has scenarios for solo play, asking you to construct specific cards in the game (for example, to clean pollution by building a Recycling Plant, Turbines, Vaccines and Aquaculture). The expansion will contain extra solo scenarios too.
