Japanime Games


As I mentioned, a lot of different countries rolled out new regulations and closures during the outbreak. Japanime Games is being affected by these new orders and have temporarily stopped shipping product.

One of the things about everyone not being able to go out is that a lot of local businesses aren't able to stay open during this time. Either they're sending their workers home or there's nobody to come in to begin with. It's rough. And considering most gaming shops are small, local businesses, it can be extra tough for them. Well, Japanime Games is hoping to help. They're giving 50% of their sales from their online shop to game stores during this time. You can stay isolated and still help your local shop.

Big Eyes, Small Mouth lets players dive into their favorite anime and become part of the action like never before. The latest edition of the game, the new 4th edition, is available to order now from the Japanime Games website. There's the deluxe edition, regular edition, naked edition, and more that you can all put your name down on the list to get as soon as they're released. Be the first gamer on your block with these products when they hit shelves.

The wreck of a massive ship, sent from an advanced civilization, has been found. Different adventurers, research teams, and more have tried to investigate the area, but none have been ever heard from again. What's going on inside the massive hull? That's up to you to find out in Testament, a new cooperative card game from Japanime games. It's up on Kickstarter now.

One of the original anime RPGs is getting a new edition. Big Eyes, Small Mouth (often also called BESM) is going into its fourth edition. This new version is brought to you by the teaming up of Japanime Games and Dyskami Publishing. Considering their areas of expertise, it seems like a perfect fit. You can check out the game up on Kickstarter now.

Japanime Games and Dyskami Publishing are joining forces to bring you some more games based on the fan-favorite anime, Sailor Moon Crystal. The two are partnering up on a distribution deal, with new games making their way to you the rest of this year and into 2020.

Japanime has a whole anthology of games up on Kickstarter now. It's called The Domina Anthology, and it spans through Argoat, Miraris, and Pralaya, a trio f card games that you can play in a row, or separately. Check out the campaign.

Japanime Games has announced its next Kickstarter. And it's not just for one or two games, but an entire set of three, forming the Domina Anthology. They're Argoat, Miraris, and Pralaya. Japanime has set up a preview page with information about each game, as well as links to their rulebooks, so you can know what you're getting into long before the campaign even launches.

I'm sure a lot of us remember the debacle that was dating in high school. Secret crushes. Emotional rivals. Flirtations that were entirely not picked up on. Good times. Well, Japanime Games is looking to bring that to your tabletops with Love Battle! High School, a new competitive board game they're releasing this fall.
The year is coming to an end. 2017 has been full of twists and turns. 2018 is looking like it will certainly be an interesting one. Certainly one of potential change. To all of you, I wish you a happy and prosperous New Year.
I also wish you would read all of these review articles.
Actually, you don't really have to read all of them, but they're here if you want to check 'em out. ;)

This week we have: Dragon Pets, Too Many Bones, Circle the Wagons, Shipwrights of the North Sea, The Ruhr: A Story of Coal, Pile-Up Rush, and Summit.

Who wouldn't want a dragon for a pet? I mean, really. I'd love a dozen! And that's just what you can get in Dragon Pets, now available from Japanime Games. In it, you'll be competing in the 1783rd Dragon Breeding Competition. Go out and catch the most wild dragons and get them... umm... together... (this just turned from G to NC-17 in a hurry) and show that you're the best dragon breeder around.
Occasionally, games need to be redone. They were good, and had a good premise and mechanics. But over time, things need to be updated, rebalanced, and re-thought out. Such was the case with Kanzume Goddess. And Japanime Games has done it. It's now Kamigami Battles: Battle of the Nine Realms, a PVP deck-building game. The game's been cleaned up and is now up on Kickstarter.
Japanime Games has started taking pre-orders for a new card game called Terrifying Girl Disorder. It takes its inspiration from the novel Dogra Magra. In the game, players are highly-psychically-powerful women who have lost their memories. The goal is to regain that which was lost, though each character has their own, unique win conditions for the game as well.
Japanime Games has announced that Tanto Cuore, their deck-building game of budding relationships, is getting a new expansion. Winter Romance looks to add whole new dynamics to the game, including butlers. They also have new interactive game mechanics they're bringing in. And, as you'd expect, the Kickstarter will have all manner of exclusives and extras for backers.
Love is a many-splendored thing. At least, so I'm told. *is a grump and single, but waddyagonnado?* Couple get together, go on dates, fall in love. All that mushy stuff. But love is also fickle and a battlefield. Dates can and will go wrong. Will the happy couple remain one at the end? That's what you'll be trying to find out in Love Formula, a new card drafting game from Japanime Games that's up on Kickstarter now.
Well, this has been quite a week. Monday had the site down for reasons that are still not 100% identified (it blipped again a little earlier today, but was once more fixed by our outstanding IT guy, Lucas). Tuesday was busy playing catch-up. Plus, there's been article-writing and such behind-the-scenes for other stuff around here. Just a busy week. I know I could use some extra energy. And I think a bunch of bite-size gaming stories can do that very thing.

Today on the platter we have: Khurasan starts 15mm Late 14th Century Range, Acheson adds 28mm Gorillas, Love Formula Coming To Kickstarter This Month, Game Master Digital GM Tools Up On Kickstarter, New Quickshade Washes Available To Order From The Army Painter, Killbox Games New Releases and Kickstarter News, Khurasan releases new 15mm undead/evil wizard sets, English Version of Master of the Galaxy Coming to Kickstarter, The Component Collector Up On Kickstarter, and New Dvergr Commandos Available From Kromlech.

The folks over at Japanime Games have a new board game coming out later this spring. It's called Alicematic Heroes. It puts players in charge of their own kingdom. But you're not cordial neighbors. Each wants to expand their territory outward. But how will you go about building and expanding your kingdom? With five aspects you can work on, there's no single way to best-win the game.
You know, one of the things people say they want out of games is to be "immersed" in it. You know, to feel that you really are your characters and that your actions have real consequences. In the Sword Art Online anime, "immersion" takes on a whole new level. Much like the Matrix, if you die in the game, you die in the real world, too. The only way to escape is to defeat the game. And that's just what you and the other players are trying to do in the Sword Art Online board game, up now on Kickstarter.
Well, it's finally Friday. Seems like it's taken forever. Also, who wants to take bets on me clocking out this evening and then suddenly feeling like I'm clocking in on Monday morning? You know weekends never work like the work week. It's going to just go by in a flash, I'm sure. Well, so I have enough energy to get through the rest of the day and then to zip through the weekend, I should load up on bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Paymaster Games launches Aztec Kickstarter, KaYo Miniatures Running Clown Army 28mm Miniatures Kickstarter, Dhovaine RPG on the horizon for Higher Grounds, Wu Wei hits Kickstarter on March 20th, New Quad Lascannon From Kromlech, Final Days for Dragon Empire Army Up On Kickstarter, One Page Rules Releases Battle Sisters and Dark Elves Lists, Sword Art Online the Boardgame: Sword of Fellows Coming To Kickstarter, Brigade Models Release New 6mm PacFed, Imperial Agents Weekend Promo From Kromlech, and Rebel Minis Releases New Sci-Fi Horror Packs.

I used to work in a hospital. I've seen things that most people really shouldn't see. I've seen amazing things, though, as doctors and nurses are able to help heal patients back from what seems like certain death. If you want to help others like those medical personnel, you might want to check out Dynamite Nurse, the new deck-building game up on Kickstarter.
Is this week going by quickly for everyone else, or is it just me? I woke up this morning and sort of shocked myself with the fact that I was putting on my Wednesday shirt already. We'll be getting to the weekend before we know it. But in the meantime, we should stock up on some bite-size gaming stories.

Japanime Games wants everyone to be able to play their games. Particularly, right now, they're focusing on making it so a whole new audience can enjoy Tanto Cuore, their deck-building game. As such, they've launched a Kickstarter campaign for Tanto Cuore International Edition.
It's going guys. The week is continuing on. We'll make it. The weekend will be here as soon as it can.

In order to make sure we have plenty of strength, we should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: 5E RPG Condition Cards on Kickstarter, Polyversal Update- 300 backers, new stretch goal, new add-on, new video, Lairs Coming To Kickstarter Soon, New Orc Bust from NonSenseminiatures, A Few Weeks Left In Dark Art Studios Painting Contest, Frostgrave: Into the Breeding Pit Nickstarter Deals from Sally 4th, Raging Heroes Flesh Eaters Unveiled, Red Panda Miniatures Posts The Design Process For Roland, Warriors of the Apocalypse with great weapons preview, The Far East War 1592 Coming Soon To Kickstarter, Tanto Cuore International Crowdfunding Campaign launching June 14th, HOPE launch on Kickstarter Thursday at 12pm, Hitech Miniatures Releases Soothsayer Sybilla, Dungeon Monsters UPDATE #1 ( adding Zombie and Skeleton singles), and New Sons of Thor Legs From Kromlech.

It's almost here, everyone! The weekend will be here before you know it! Along with the gaming, I'm certainly ready for pizza for dinner tonight. The Ramen I've been having is getting a bit old on the palate. But in the meantime, I can nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

I can't draw.
Well, that's not entirely true. I took a couple drafting classes. But as such, if I want to draw a stick figure, I need a drafting machine, t-square, and a set of French curves. Thankfully, you don't have to be a Doc Nickel, or Rickard Jonasson, or Lar DeSouza in order to win the game. But you will be writing a comic.
