Wild Wars: Family Battle!

with deckbox

Wild Wars Logo

The world of man has been depleted to the brink of extinction and now only a handful of people survive. Those that have, have allied themselves with hordes of animals from the five habitats: Land, Sea, Underground, Forest, and Sky. You are a general of one of these hordes and will work together with your animals to claim a new habitat to live in, fighting against enemy generals’ who seek to stop you in these Wild Wars for survival.

Unlike most other strategy and collectible card games, which use magical and fantasy creatures, Wild Wars is based on real world animals with actual abilities!

Wild Wars: Family Battle! is great for ages 5 and up, teaching the concepts of more complex strategy card games in a way that kids of all ages can understand and fostering a love of science and the world around us! 

The Family Battle! lets players experiment with animals from all five kingdoms, using universal food costs that're easier to understand for beginners and are great for as many as four players with just one deck, using a point gain system to make sure no one gets eliminated before the end!  As you keep playing, you'll be able to add expansions to add extra strategy and complexity, like Removal objects, Stealth objects, and even Generals!

What Makes Wild Wars Unique?

Wild Wars uses the incredible animals found in our own world to encourage a love of science and wonder of the world around us. By pairing actual abilities these animals possess with gameplay, Wild Wars creates a revolutionary form of enriched learning! Each card comes with a QR code to let you learn more about the animals, objects, and food sources you'll be using! Card abilities are based on real world animals and their rarities are based on how endangered they are. By using iconic images to show animals’ strengths and abilities, younger players can grasp strategy in a whole new way! More experienced strategy players will find Wild Wars far more relaxed to play than other games due to the easily recognized icons! Utilizing symbolism allows card abilities to be understood many times faster than words alone. Wild Wars boils down all the card types found in normal collectible card games to just THREE: Food Sources, Animals, and Objects!This means younger players can easily grasp the three basic concepts of:

1.Get food. 2.Food attracts animals. 3.Animals help you win!

Streamlined card types eliminate bloat, while keeping the strategy options of far more complex games. To challenge more advanced players, there are at least 4 color-specific, strategy-shifting generals available for every deck! Plus, each general is based on a real people group or job, encouraging exploration of the real world through the game! As with the other cards, each general has QR code to let you learn more about the real world job or people group described! For more experienced players, the use of designated General cards help add a variety of new strategies and deck building possibilities.Because Wild Wars is a CCG (Collectible Card Game), it's not limited to the core decks, so players start with a basic deck and then are free to swap in better pieces from other decks and expansion packs to more fully reflect their preferred game play as they learn and grow! Players are encouraged to combine kingdoms to create hybrid armies, to swap in all-stars from a roster of current and soon-to-be-released generals, and trade with friends to create the most powerful army! Combine kingdoms of animals to create super powerful combo decks that are unique to you as a player. The Wild Wars proprietary Power Star System allows the game to advance with the player’s skills. With complexity measured by stars, the more stars on a card, the more options it has--and the more advanced it is! This allows households with a variety of ages and skill levels within them to quickly transform decks to fairly compete! The Power Stars make tweaking your decks for different tournament environments and casual gameplay scenarios super fast and painless. To assist with gameplay that explores the world in a whole new way, Wild Wars uses artwork by master artists and inventors from the past four hundred years to illustrate each card and concept! In addition to more well known artists like Leonardo da Vinci and John James Audubon, there are amazing naturalists like Joseph Smith, William Homes Lizar, and Joseph Wolf, as well as unexpected artisans like British-thief-turned-Australian-Prison-painter William Buelow Gould! The QR codes on each card will let you learn, not only about the animal or general on the card, but more about the artist whose art was used, as well. Because of the amazing artists featured in each card, your awareness of the art of the past will increase with each game you play!

How many players can play?

Wild Wars is ideally suited to two players, but, with one deck per player, you can play with up to four. In larger games, players will enjoy the challenge of competing against multiple opponents at once, having to come up with more complex forms of strategy to deal with them. (We do recommend a starting life total of 15 for three players, and 20 for four players!)

How do I get started?

Unlike some more complex collectible card games, Wild Wars intentionally makes getting started really simple. While more experienced players may want to get a Solo deck and expand it (or even create one from scratch) to build the "ultimate" fighting deck, most people want to start with a game that has everything you need to start playing "in the box," so to speak. As such, one of our Basic Duel Decks is the perfect way to get started with Wild Wars. Each set includes two complete 42 card dueling decks (along with any requisite Spawn cards)--everything you need to enjoy rousing fights between major animals from two competing kingdoms:! (For more advanced players, the Deluxe versions are an even better value because they include 8 game-changing generals--four for each deck!)

Product Information
Original electronic Click for more information
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
