Help Wanted Turn based multiplayer from scratch (no PlayFab)

    I work as a web developer, and I recently acquired a new hobby - game development.

    I tried making some small games - top down shooters, basic platformers - just to get a feel of the Unity Engine.
    Now I want to try my hand at creating a basic turn based multiplayer board game - something like Uno or Ludo or a card game.

    I had initially tried such a project using web technologies. At that time, I was able to achieve the same thing by running Socket IO on a NodeJS server.
    The clients connected to that server using JS.

    How do I achieve similar functionality in my Unity game? Most of the tutorials involve PlayFab or some other service.
    I don't want to use them.
    I am not looking for any advanced features.
    All I want is to write some basic server side code that I can host on an EC2 instance (or something similar) that my Unity clients (standalone / webgl) can connect to and communicate with in real time.

    I don't want to end up using a ton of boilerplate code from existing plugins (like Mirror).
