A Tranquility: The Ascent egy remek társasjáték, 1 - 5 játékos részére. Kooperatív jellegű, a játékmenet erősen épít a lapka-elhelyezés, a pakli tervezés és a limitált kommunikáció mechanizmusokra.

Starting at the bottom of the mountain, players are tasked with completing a pyramid-shaped grid from the base to the summit. The base of the mountain is nine cards wide, the row above that is eight and so on until the top row which consists of a single Summit card played once the rest of the grid is complete (like the Finish card in Tranquility). On your turn, a player may do one of two things: play a card or discard two cards. In Tranquility: The Ascent, cards are numbered between 1 and 12 and also in three different terrain types/colours. When playing a card next to another in the row, the player must discard the difference between the two cards e.g. placing a '7' next to a '4' would require three cards to be discarded.
Rows are completed from left-to-right and the numbers on the cards can ascend, descend or remain the same. Rows can start with/be made up of any number with only one restriction: the number must be equal to or higher than the number of the row. For example, a '1' can only be played in the first row whereas numbers 8-12 can be played on any row. You also cannot play two cards of the same colour next to each other in a row.
A new row can be started once at least the first two cards in the row below have been placed. Cards must always be 'supported' by the two cards immediately below them but they do not relate to the rows above or beneath in any way i.e. the first row could start with a '10' and the next row start with a '1'.
The players win the game by completing the grid and then topping it with a Summit card. They lose when a player cannot take an action on their turn.
