Do you love Final Fantasy-style JRPGs (Japanese Roleplaying Games)? Who doesn’t! Would you like to play a JRPG as a card game, moving your party from region to region, encountering enemies and events along the way in the search of getting stronger to defeat a final evil?
Anima: The Card Game is a trilogy of stand-alone anime, dark fantasy, adventure expandable card game sets within the same universe as the Anima: Beyond Fantasy roleplaying game. There are currently 3 available sets: Shadow of Omega (core set), Beyond Good and Evil, and Twilight of the Gods. Each set brings new adventures, characters, and enemies to this fantasy world.
Anima: The Card Game is designed to be played with 2-5 players with each player attempting to build a party of adventures that will take on Omega and other forces of darkness. We’ll cover all three games in this review, as the mechanics remain the same throughout with some minor changes and additions in the stand-alone expansions. The gameplay is simple and has a lot of similarities to Talisman, but without the board.
