World of Yo-Ho, the pirate game in which your smart phone is your boat, is getting a significant update to the mobile app in October! The update will be completely free and players who already have the game will get to enjoy the new version as soon as the update is available.

Here’s a list of the changes to come:

  • Fixing bugs in how the app works.
  • Fixing typos in the text.
  • Improving the stability of in-game wi-fi connections.
  • New team modes: play in teams and share victory or defeat with your partner!
  • Abandoning missions will now cost 20 swag points. Choose your missions with care…
  • Instead of opening up the menu on launch, the app will now automatically try to reconnect when a player disconnects.
  • Many new treasures and artifacts.
  • 30 new missions (attacking monsters, discovering treasure, peaceful missions, and more!) to spice up your adventures.
  • New objects to use during battle to weaken your opponent or speed up your victory.
  • New rule for the Walrus: he has to rest every 5 turns, but visiting a Port counts as a rest.

There are more to come, but this is already very exciting news!

New releases – World of Yo-Ho & Mexica

We’re excited to announce two BIG (seriously, these boxes are heavy) games that are joining the IELLO family today: World of Yo-Ho and Mexica!

World of Yo-Ho is a fantasy game of adventure and piracy on the high seas. It’s a new type of game, for 2 to 4 players, that combines the tangible and social pleasure of a board game with the interactive mechanics of a video game. Become the most famous pirate of this parallel world full of intelligent animals, lost islands, and wild magic. The app is free and brings hilarious animations and sound effects to your battles and explorations. Though gameplay is more dynamic with a phone, the game includes material to allow you to play with four phones, or even just one phone. Tom Vasel from The Dice Tower picked it as his top game of December and also put out a fun review that shows gameplay! Check out our World of Yo-Ho youtube playlist for more gameplay and review videos!

Mexica is the third installment of the legendary “Masks” trilogy designed by W. Kramer & Mr. Kiesling. Tikal and Java were the first two games in this series, but we’ve redone the art to modernize it. Mexica is an investment game, requiring players to successful block their opponents while vying for majority with simple and subtle rules. Judiciously use your action points to build neighborhoods, dig navigation canals, build bridges … and counter the plans of your opponents! The game comes with sturdy resin temples to place and beautiful artwork on the map. Check out our Mexica youtube playlist for gameplay and review videos!

Upcoming release: World of Yo-Ho

Do you love board games? The joy of spending time with your friends, face to face, while challenging your brain. Do you also think of your cell phone as an extra body part? Keeping you constantly plugged in to the infinitely incredible world of technology. If the answer is yes, you need to keep reading.

Our friends at Volumique have spent the past few years developing, World of Yo-Ho; the perfect combination of social interaction, physical elements, and software that takes advantage of digital space. They’re so close to finishing the final product but need your help to make this unique new game reality.

We believe in this project and will act as the publisher when it’s ready to launch. We tried it out at GenCon and had a fantastic time playing it. At Essen, the fans were taken aback by the slick design and compelling game play. This isn’t like anything else we’ve seen and know it’s going to make a great splash.

Please spend a few minutes checking out the World of Yo-Ho kickstarter page. We’ll see you later on the high seas!
