The Basics
Yomi is a fighting game in card form where physical dexterity is replaced by hand management skills. Just like in a fighting game, you have to know your character, know the matchup, and know your opponent. Each character has a deck that follows the same conventions as a deck of playing cards. This makes it easy to learn the contents of your deck: numbered cards are normal moves, face cards are special moves, and aces are super moves.
A Strategy Game for Thousands of Plays
While Yomi is good for a quick session and portable enough to play on-the-go, it's also a serious competitive game with a community that strives to improve. It's a strategy game with a high skill-ceiling so it's something you can play over a thousand times. Years of development and lots of tournament play means you can count on it holding up no matter how deep you get into it.
Lots of Characters and Modes
This set has 4 characters, though there are 16 more characters to collect, each with their own special abilities, creating over 200 matchups. Find the character whose personality matches your playstyle. You can play Yomi in the classic 1v1 mode, an over-the-top 2v2 tag team mode (similar to Marvel vs. Capcom), a practice solo mode, or a 3v3 mode (similar to King of Fighters).
Character Highlights

This product contains four characters:

Quince (challenging to play well)

  • Quince can play TWO cards in combat sometimes!
  • Quince can spin his combat card around after what the opponent played! 
  • Politicians are straightforward and truthful, but this deck is very tricky to play

Onimaru (easy to understand)

  • Onimaru has attacks that can beat any other attacks in the game.
  • Onimaru relies on single hits for high damage, rather than big combos.
  • He can guard crush through an opponent's block. 

Bal-Bas-Beta (very difficult to understand)

  • Put your opponent at long range and they can't even damage BBB, but BBB can damage them.
  • BBB can play relatively safely while dealing low damage, then shift to high damage plays to end the game. 
  • Robots have a lot of moving parts, so it takes some thinking to understand BBB, but once you do he isn't as hard to play as it seems.

Troq (easy to understand)

  • Troq is simple and powerful.
  • Troq smash. 
  • Troq throw 'u'.
Did you notice?

Quince's lies and illusions are cloaked in truthiness and patriotism.

Onimaru is Quince's general in charge of Flagstone's military.

Geiger built BBB, then General Onimaru adapted the technology to create clockwork soldiers.

Troq is a soldier for General Onimaru, but Zane tempts Troq into switching sides by offering him more Giant Growth potions.
