Denkosekka means ‘lightning speed’ in Japanese and that’s exactly what this new battle system game requires. Players use precision, strategy and speed to collect rare and valuable disks with the end goal of achieving the highest score and becoming the Denko Master.
The battle begins with each player armed with a Denko Catcher – a retractable yo-yo that has a single magnet securely embedded in its covered base. An adjustable loop at the end of a cord attaches the Denko Catcher to the player’s finger, enabling the catcher to quickly return after being thrown toward the ground to retrieve Denko Disks.
If the magnetized tip of the catcher lands on the metal-coated center of a Denko Disk, the disk will adhere to the catcher. The player who threw the catcher will keep the disk. Disks with smaller metal-coated centers or thicker (heavier) frames are harder to catch and offer higher point values. At the end of each round, players add up the points displayed on their disks to determine the new Denko Master.
Denko Catchers and Denko Disks come in different weights, colors and themes. Disks that match the color of the catcher are worth double points; incorporate battle mats to earn quadruple points. Depending on their rarity, size and shape – Denko Disks are valued at 10 to 50 points each, with highly collectable 100-point disks in limited circulation.
Players can take a defensive strategy and aim for their opponents’ high-value disks, or they can play offense and focus on retrieving as many of their own disks as possible. Each battle approach will vary depending on who is playing, which catchers are in use and the quantity, value and position of the disks.
