The Wild Kingdoms is a new unique and intriguing board / card game where you can battle people globally through the online multiplayer feature or skirmish against each other using one device. Set in the Yoruba Kingdoms, your job is to build armies of creatures, control the forces of nature, and use magical charms against your opponents.
Your first job is to build your deck of creatures and elements. Each creature card has its own stats that determine Range, Power, and Health which can then later be combined with another element to make them more powerful. You then set up your pieces on a chess-type board and take turns trying to capture a "King" or "Son" using your creature cards. Unique power-up cards appear at random and you must use an element of strategy when moving your pieces in order to win.
