Just played this once but was immediately attracted to this. Unfortunately it seems rather pricey to import is generally rarely available.

The hidden move selection coupled with a few unavailable cards plus a rough feeling of what the other character is about (strategy plus special cards) makes for fair and enjoyable mind games.

Fighting game with a slight spatial component (like Flash Duel), where you outguess each other (Yomi) with 2-card combinations. Perfect information (unique) but with high nuance in perception of the game state.

On the plus side, there is infinite replayability with each character being a lesson in completely new ideas, mechanisms and strategy. The action cycling is used well here to make 'current' and 'future' states important and lend depth to the information state. Character asymmetry is more 'dense' in this game because every single move is half-completed by a unique character trait, as opposed to, say, Sirlin games, which feel like variations upon a core in comparison (poker deck, or a special character move only comes in after X # of 'base' turns). The fact that 5 character styles and 7 bases, 12 cards for each player, causes so much AP (and in an interesting manner because of the action cycling), is remarkable.

But also because of this, I wish the game were more 'playable'. Right now, it takes a long time to figure out the perfect move and what the stakes are, and there's a pressure to just 'get on with it' when part of my head wants to take forever and figure out everything. Suspect that among inexperienced players, you win by surprising your opponent with a combo (which he can figure out if he subjects you to a ton of AP), whereas if you're experienced, you might as well play a game that boils down the payoffs of the rock-paper-scissors more simply.

I'm just concerned with the long-term trajectory, since neither 'surprise your opponent because otherwise it'll take too long' nor 'I played paper because my internal calculator gives 83.353% chance of you casting rock, and you... just stuck 2 fingers out randomly' appeals greatly to me. Until then, I'm still interested in exploring this game, and maybe it'll be some sweet spot in between.

Some are born to move the world To live their fantasies But most of us just dream about The things we'd like to be Sadder still to watch it die Than never to have known it For you, the blind who once could see The bell tolls for thee...
