YU-GI-OF DUELIST OF ROSES
Retelling the infamous War of the Roses conflict of 1485 between the English houses of Lancaster and York, Duelist of the Roses is admirably based in factual history. Instead of the guns and bayonets used in the Battle of Bosworth Hill, however, this narration is played out with mystical card battles and gigantic summoned monsters. In the most basic of terms, its structure is a modified “Rock, Paper, Scissors”. Combat is entirely turn-based with a consistent 7×7 grid map serving as the battleground. Each player can summon up to five monsters simultaneously, with powers and abilities determined by card type, location, posturing, offensive and defensive point values, square terrain, and an experience-based rank system that determines its power.
