On the Third Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me, Three Anime Games
On the Third Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me,
Three Anime Games,
and Legend of the Galactic Heroes Keychains
Some of you might not know this but I'm really into playing board games. Our collection has grown quite a bit over the past year which is always exciting. Here are some anime themed ones!
Card "board" games are always fun. My favourite being Dominion but Tanto Cuore is just the same as Dominion yet adds anime maids. So really who can resist that if they are into anime AND board games? I've only played it once so far but it was alright. I really want to give it more time and get the expansions for more maid girls! Because moar card, moar fun! The holidays shall prove to be quite enjoyable playing with more anime maids~
So Tentacle Bento started off as a kickstarter project (A lot of board games get made this way these days), it got cancelled because people were like waaaaaa rape or something because you know... tentacles and school girls. Anyway it still got funding and in the end voila, a card game. I don't have much to add that Landon didn't already cover in his post honestly. There is one thing I'll add though. The game play has a huge hole that my friend figured out really fast. I soon figured out what he was doing and started doing it too. (cause if I didn't there was no way to play against my friend) It kinda sucked and took the fun out of the game for me honestly. We need to play with a house rule that makes it so you can't have a million cards in your hands or something along those lines.
Still it was pretty fun and silly if you aren't offended by girls and tentacles. I also got a good laugh that one of the school girls has my name XD
Technically I'm cheating with adding Love Letter here, but well a Japanese guy named Seiji Kanai created it so close enough right? XD Love Letter is very simple but oh so addicting. I was introduced to it and fell in love instantly. Since then boyfriend and I have introduced it to plenty of our friends and all have loved it too. So much that some wanted to get copies of their own.
Basically you want to have the princess in your hand at the end of the round. And if you do you get a little red cube. Our group of friends quickly called this "cube club". Not sure why this amuses us so much but it is always fun to keep some players from joining "cube club" (specifically my boyfriend). Tis pretty much a memory game so playing while drinking gets interesting but always ends up being super fun!
