Description
Digimon Battle Evolution is a fan-made Digimon card game for two players. It is based on the Playstation 1 title "Digimon World: Digital Card Battles" with several changed and updated rules, many altered cards (plus new cards) and completely new game features and concepts. Pick a powerful partner Digimon that easily evolves. Play a deck containing any of eight types of Digimon, or mix-and-match types.

Each player will send out their Digimon, evolve, and support them with their own cards. The Digimon battle until one player achieves 4 KOs! Digimon Battles is an Expandable Card Game, (ECG) and is free for life. Several expansion sets are currently released, with more planned.

This module comes with a two-player setup ready to go. One side will take control of the partner Agumon and the Dragon's Rage deck. It fights ferociously, showing no mercy with increased power. The other side will partner with Gabumon and the Nature's Howl deck. It fights tactically, trying to keep its health up and win a war of attrition. These decks are tested and balanced against each other, while also serving as a jumping-off point for players to construct their own decks.

The cards for construction are sorted by type and are fully searchable! The base set features 200 different cards to get started. The Executed Code (EX) set contains 100 additional cards to expand your game—which is integrated into this module already. Data Breakers (DB) set contains 50 additional cards and several new card types, all integrated into the module. Bit Depth (BIT) contains 70 additional cards with several new mechanics and a throwback LCD art style.

Digimon Battles also has a set of convenience buttons: "Peek" - pulls the top card of the deck facedown for the owner to check; "Trash" - sends the top card of the deck to the discard; "Recycle" - opposite of trash, sends the top of the discard to the deck. Each of these are somewhat common effects in the game that can be very fiddly without the buttons. Special thanks to ZoeyWP co-contributor for scripting these.

The rules to the game are organized in the NOTES section by category for ease-of-use. If you like, you can check this link to the standalone rules, which is better formatted (and has a video):

(Note: The linked rules are updated more frequently than tabletop simulator's "Notes" section!)

What Zod said. Thanks for putting this together, it's ridiculously well made.

Dude, you rock. Thanks for the uplifting comment!
Print quality will hopefully be coming soon with 300 DPI. We're just working out our workflow and optimizing for 350 (and growing) cards. Plus balancing that with the workload of a new set. But I can guarantee if you arrange some properly scaled copies from https://v-mundi.com gallery into Microsoft Publisher and print @300dpi color laser, they're sexy. We have a whole set printed in laser.

Cheers, and look forward to our expansion projects

This is game is AMAZING! Great look, borrows from the fun PS1 system, and the new mechanics and rules work well; the Destiny system to replicate the Partner system and incorporate Megas is straight-up inspired. I only wish we had print-quality files for everything to make physical versions. It's not like Bandai/TOEI are gonna make another card game any time soon, and it definitely wouldn't be as good anyway.

There's something on the near horizon...

@Hank Hill; thanks for the compliments. Indeed it was months and months of work designing, playtesting, errataing, and round and round for all the cards. I think there's at least a year of work into it thus far with more coming. Well I hope you get to play with friends soon!

This is fantastic. I haven't given it a try yet but you've put a lot of work into this and the Digimon Card Battle for PS1 is definitely one of the better card games for any video game. I'll give this a try when I get a chance! (currently working on a Digimon board game) :steamhappy:
