Developers of the Aotu World board game, hardcore card e-sports community iYingdi, has boldly stepped forwards in partnership with IP founders 7Doc for a new collaboration in the field of domestic animation derivative works. So as to better cohere with Generation Z audiences' ideas toward board games, iYingdi decided from the start to distance this title from the over-complex rule systems of some hardcore board games. While staying true to the IP's storytelling style and design as a basis, they came up with a clever amalgamation of strategy and gameplay for a release that players can jump straight into.
The game's creativity revolves around its use of cards with social interaction element that players must use as they fight to win. You're given freedom in how to launch the offensive—both sides flip a coin to launch an attack, which is deceivingly simple at first glance, but means it's always possible for the tables to be turned. Guessing the coin toss only adds to the collective fun of the game, and also allows for some great mind games between players, too. Even newbies to the genre can get up to speed in just five minutes. You could even become a serious board game pro in no time flat!

As for how the game plays, its turns take place with a rapid rhythm and there's always the chance to gain the upper hand: so it's really easy to get started. There's loads of fun to be had in utilizing your abilities and buffs to double your card effects all in a single turn; and even if you want to stick with just a single character, you can still have a blast by mixing up your abilities and cards in hand, too.
