In GOB, collectible cards are NFTs, owned by players for trading or battling, with rarity linked to limited print quantities.
Goons of Balatroon (GOB) is a trading card game where players battle each other with 300 wacky and quirky cards. The title seamlessly integrates NFTs into its gameplay with Risk-To-Earn mechanics. This approach to gaming offers players a dynamic ecosystem that redefines the concepts of play, ownership, and a new angle to the traditional card genre.
In the world of GOB, collectible cards are more than just virtual items; they are NFTs that players can buy, sell, and trade. Each card has a fixed number of prints, ensuring its rarity and value. The rarer the card, the fewer the prints. Players have complete ownership of their cards, granting them the freedom to use them in battles or trade them in the marketplace.
Goons of Balatroon players have the option to engage in ranked matches that influence their leaderboard standings. These matches can be initiated through two primary modes: constructed or random. Interestingly, the matchmaking system pools players from both these modes together. This means that a player who has chosen the constructed mode might find themselves pitted against someone from the random mode, and vice versa.
For those looking for a more relaxed experience, the game offers the "Challenge a Friend" mode. This casual mode allows players to engage in friendly matches without any impact on their leaderboard rankings.
Diving deeper into the gameplay modes, the "Constructed Mode" is for those who prefer strategy and preparation. In this mode, players bring their meticulously crafted 30-card deck to the battlefield. While every player is provided with a randomly generated 30-card deck to start, they have the freedom to modify this deck or even craft new ones to suit their strategic preferences.
On the other hand, the "Risk Mode" is for the thrill-seekers. It mirrors the gameplay of the constructed mode but adds an adrenaline-pumping twist. Players can wager tokens on themselves, and the stakes are high – the victor walks away with the tokens, leaving the defeated player empty-handed.
For newcomers or those wanting a change of pace, the "Random Mode" is an excellent choice. It provides players with a randomly assembled deck from the entire active card pool. Given the equal chance of any card being selected, decks in this mode can sometimes be imbalanced, offering a unique challenge.
Lastly, the "Challenge a Friend" feature fosters community and camaraderie. Players can easily add friends using the Friends Tab and invite them for a match. These matches are purely for fun, ensuring a stress-free environment for both participants.
