Metazoo is a card game that features cryptids, which are creatures that are claimed to exist but have not been proven by science. Some examples of cryptids are Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, Mothman, and Chupacabra. Metazoo cards have a retro look and feel, and the game mechanics are influenced by the real-world environment. For example, if you play near a forest, your Forest Beasties get a boost in power.
Metazoo has become very popular among collectors and players, especially since the game was endorsed by celebrities like Steve Aoki and Logan Paul. Some of the cards are very rare and valuable and can fetch thousands of dollars on the secondary market.
