World of Yo-Ho is a fantasy game of adventure and piracy on the high seas!
It's a new type of gaming experience that combines the tangible and social pleasure of a board game with the interactive and adaptable mechanics of a video game. The game features a high-quality board that represents the minutely detailed world of Yo-Ho and a free, downloadable app that turns your smartphone into a ship that any filibuster would be proud of. Simply place your phone on the map and set sail for adventure!
Become the most famous pirate of Yo-Ho, a parallel world teeming with intelligent animals, lost islands and wild magic! The call to adventure echoes throughout this land and although life on the high seas is a dangerous game, for those that truly embrace the pirate spirit the promise of glory is worth any risk.
As a captain in search of fame and fortune you will explore the vast world of Yo-Ho, solving its mysteries, battling sea monsters and other booty hungry corsairs in tactical naval engagements. The needy and the powerful will solicit your services, demanding you sail the nine seas searching for buried treasure, trading with friend and foe alike, collecting the bounty on the heads of the most notorious pirates and sometimes fellow players as well as much, much more! All this will allow you to fill your holds with plunder that you can use to upgrade your boat, acquire more powerful weaponry and useful items, or just give your captain that little bit of extra flair! Stock up on Swag and show the world just how good of a pirate you are!
Each captain is master of his own destiny: Will you be a bloodthirsty swashbuckler, brazenly hoisting the Jolly Roger as you plunder all those you cross? Or will you choose to stand as a defender of the innocent and a peaceful merchant? Whatever your freebooting predilection may be, the stage is set and each captain can play a vital role in the great events to come.
Game mechanics includes:deck/pool building, grid movement, and variable player powers.
