Pick Your Favorite Genre of Anime Tabletop Games!

Let's dive into the different types of anime tabletop games. First up, we have role-playing games (RPGs). RPGs allow players to create characters and embark on adventures in a fantasy world. Next, we have deck-building games, where players build decks, collecting strategic cards to use against their opponents. Lastly, we have board games, which follow more traditional gaming conventions you might be used to if you haven’t gamed recently.

What’s your favorite Anime World?

Anime is an escape into fantastical worlds filled with superheroes, bounty hunters, or monster slaying army cadets. Anime tabletop games offer doorways into these worlds, immersing you amongst characters and plots that are designed to excite fans from everywhere. Sailor Moon Crystal Dice Challenge, for example, is a dice game where players compete to be the first to collect crystal tokens; and Cowboy Bebop Space Serenade is a deck-building game where players take on the role of bounty hunters and compete to capture the most bounties; and, last but not least, Attack on Titan: The Last Stand is a board game where players take on the role of the Survey Corps, fighting against the Titans to save humanity. The world you want to escape into is ready for you to explore!
