This article summarizes everything that has been revealed so far by the Shiba Inu team ($SHIB) about their next card game, which is called “Shiba Eternity”.
On November 27, 2021, Shytoshi Kusama, the pseudo project lead Shiba Inu shared how the team is gearing up to make a very impressive debut into the gaming world.
In a Medium blog post titled “The future of the game is Shib“, Shytoshi began by saying that, although he could not provide information “requiredon the game his team is building (due to concerns about how quickly other people would try to steal the concept), he revealed that their new games division – Shiba Inu games – has hired video game designer and developer William David Volk to lead the design and implementation of the game, which is being developed by a “AAA Game Studio“.
William David Volk – former VP of Technology at Activision – who indicates on his LinkedIn page that he has been freelancing for Shiba Inu Games since the beginning of the month, said:
“I’m honored to work with an amazing team on what will become one of the most important games of all time.”
Shytoshi noted that this “would provide unique opportunities within the Shiba Inu ecosystem ($SHIB, $LEASH & $BONE), while Shiba Inu Games remains completely separate from this business“. Furthermore, he pointed out that “revenue from Shiba Inu Games in-app purchases also provides opportunities for Shib & Leash burns“.

In case you’ve never heard of this earlier type of game, here’s a description from Wikipedia:
” A collectible card game (CCG), also called a collectible card game (TCG) among other names, is a type of card game that mixes strategic deck-building elements with collectible card features, introduced with Magic: The Gathering in 1993….”
“Typically, a player can start playing a TCG with a pre-set starting deck, then customize their deck with a random assortment of cards acquired from booster packs or from trading with other players, to build their own card library. When a player customizes more cards, he can create new decks from his library.”
“Players are challenged to build a deck within the limits set by the TCG rules that will allow them to beat decks built by other players. Games are usually played between two players, but multiplayer formats are common.”
“The game is usually played on a turn-based basis, with each player starting with a shuffled deck and, in turn, drawing and playing cards to attack the other player and reduce their life points to zero before their opponent can defeat them. the same has chosen. GCC tournaments allow expert players to compete for prizes.”
“GCCs are generally themed around fantasy or science fiction, but also horror, cartoons and sports, and may include licensed intellectual properties. GCC Cards are specially designed decks of playing cards. Each GCC map represents an element of this game-oriented GCC theme, and can fall into categories such as Creatures, Upgrades, Events, Resources, and Locations.”
