Tabletops will quake come this September when Bandai unleashes the latest official GODZILLA CARD GAME!
We’ve compiled all available info along with the game’s brand new Toho kaiju artwork to get you as pumped for this September release as we are.
Courtesy of the immensely popular Chrono Clash System (of Dragon Ball Super Card Game fame), the GCG will feature dozens upon dozens of our favorite classic kaiju from Toho’s Godzilla pantheon in 60-card decks – each set for customization and expandability. This unique, engaging card system was created by Ryan Miller, whose credits include Magic: The Gathering, Duel Masters, and Kaijudo – so Bandai’s latest Big-G tabletop experience is in excellent hands.
According to gaming site ICv2, Chrono Clash works as follows:
Instead of traditional turn-based play, in this system players share a power resource track, moving the token back and forth based on the power value of the cards they play. The position of the token determines when play passes to the other player.
The boxed set will release at $49.99 retail and include everything needed to start the game – and then some.
Inside you’ll find:
- four pre-constructed 50-card decks plus a 16-card sideboard
- 24 double-sized cards
- 4 turn sequence cards
- 4 play mats
- multi-language play manual
The Godzilla card game is made for 2 to 4 players, and Bandai states the experience should run about a half an hour to play each time. They’ve set the accessibility for all-ages, too – so fellow G-Fans as young as six can play along (GCG is intended for players 6 and up).
To support the launch of the title, Bandai is preparing in-store organized play events this October-forward. ICv2 states:
Participating stores will receive Tournament Kits which include support materials for up to eight participants, promotional posters, and tournament prizes featuring Tournament Packs with exclusive foil cards and a playmat for the tournament winner. Retailers can get one free Tournament Kit for each case of four games ordered.
**As a final note for those who enjoy other Chrono Clash card games, Bandai does note that The Godzilla Card Game cards will not be compatible with other Chrono Clash games, including the upcoming Summer release of their Naruto Boruto.
You can view the game’s official trailer below, courtesy of Bandai, and look for the GODZILLA CARD GAME at your favorite tabletop & gaming retailers this September.
As an avid tabletop & card game fan, I’m truly excited for this one. This will be my first foray into the Chrono Clash system – so here’s to hoping it’s all it’s cracked up to be.
