Like “Bang,” but with Anime

“Shadow Hunters”

designed by Yasutaka Ikeda, published by Z-Man Games

Players take a hidden role of either Hunters, Shadows, or Neutral characters in this anime-themed card game. Each role has a specific win condition: Hunters must eliminate all Shadow characters and vice versa while Neutral characters will have unusual conditions. Roll dice, move around the board, and play cards to deduce the identities of the other players before you attack them and utterly kill them. Or get killed yourself by an anime girl armed with shotgun, rusty axe, and chainsaw.

Love the art, love the theme, and the deduction cards make the game more focused and less random than “Bang.”
