Every time I think I’ve seen it all, an app comes along that proves to me we’ve not yet even scratched the surface. Presenting The Battle of the Wordsmiths, which, dare I say, is the first game to combine chess, collectible cards and the Yoruba visual arts. Yoruba is a region of Nigeria, and the game conveys the area’s native art through character cards which are composed entirely out of words. The result is incredibly hip, and definitely unlike anything else you’ve seen before on iOS.

The starter deck allows players access to Creature and Element cards, and the developer has promised that the deck will be expanded in future updates. We don’t yet know if the expansions will be free or require an in-app purchase, but considering The Battle of the Wordsmiths is free to download, it would make sense to anticipate some sort of freemium model for future additions.

If you’re interested in the game’s art style then check out the intro trailer. Sadly there’s no gameplay to be seen, but you’ll at least get a feel for what the game has to offer visually.
