Mini Expansions include:

Influence Tokens:
7 Archangel tokens and 7 Devil tokens that correspond to the archangel and devil cards. When you play with this expansion you will take a corresponding token every time you put an Archangel or Devil card in play. During step #1 of the turn order you then have a choice of using the +1 ability, or you may place the corresponding token on a soul in play.  You can then influence the soul where your token is placed, regardless of the mortal weakness or virtue of the soul. However, once the soul is reaped, the Archangel or Devil will no longer influence souls.

Asymmetrical Bonus Scoring:
The second mini expansion includes a deck of cards that adds secret scoring goals for each player. Can you complete your goals and stop your opponent from completing theirs?

Asymmetrical Player Powers:
The third mini expansion will include variable player powers that can be selected before the game begins to further focus individual play styles.

Blessing & Curse Tokens:
3 of a kind now also earns you a Blessing or a Curse token. A blessing or a curse can be immediately placed on a Soul. A blessing can prevent 1 unholy point from being added to a soul, and a curse can prevent 1 holy point from being added. Remove the blessing or curse once triggered. Only one blessing or curse is allowed at a time on any one soul.

Free Stuff:

Make your own Soul cards and print them for your game using Greenflame Digital's Soul Card Creator! Use your own images and pick your own Virtues and Mortal Weaknesses! The souls you create can also be used online in the Tabletop Simulator version of the game!

ACHIEVED! $30,000: We will print mini-expansion quick start rules on cards and include them with every expansion. 1 card for each mini expansion.

ACHIEVED! $35,000: We will add a second velveteen bag to the deluxe edition.

$45,000: We will add another Holy Relic and another Unholy Relic to the expansion.

$60,000: We will add two more asymmetrical powers to the expansion.
