Anima: Shadow of Omega Game Night

December 15, 2007

Tonight I got to play Anima: Shadow of Omega card game. It is published by Edge Entertainment and distributed through Fantasy Flight games here in the U.S.

Game play is fast and fun. It has the feel of munchkin when you have to defeat encounters (monsters) or get advantage cards (treasure), along with backstabbing opportunities via interrupt cards.

There are different lands come into play which players can explore and also directly combat each other. A single D6 modified by your parties current attack along with any other advantage cards is used to resolve combat between you and encounters or other players.

Each player has 2 basic missions where they must at least full-fill one. Missions vary from defeating a creation to escorting someone to various areas. After a basic mission is full-filled, one of 3 final missions is revealed and the first person to finish the final mission is the winner.

Anima: Shadow of Omega retails for $19.99 and is well worth it in my book. I can hardly wait for the next expansion to come out.
