“Mangaka is a keeper.…While I’m not a skilled artist, my kids and I love drawing and storytelling. Sharing the comics and laughing with each other’s jokes and drawing (or lack of drawing) skill was a great family experience.”—Ryan Hiller, Geekdad
“A hell of a lot of fun.”—Jonathan Bolding, The Escapist
The world’s only comic-drawing game! Funded on Kickstarter, Mangaka is a hilarious, creative card game where you & your friends play comic artists competing for fame over 4 rounds of frantic drawing. Start by drawing three Theme Cards to determine the subject of your comic. Then, you and the other players must draw comics about your Themes before the timer runs out. Fleeting Trend Cards add another dimension of strategy: will your fickle readers this round demand Science Fiction, Fantasy, Sports or Destruction? When the final round ends, the winner is the one with the most Fame Tokens…but every player ends the game with a comic of their own creation.
Designed by Jason Thompson (Manga: The Complete Guide) with art by Ike (Golden Sky Stories) and Eric “Woof” Muentes (Blue Revolver), Mangaka will challenge your speed and cleverness, and amaze your friends (and yourself) with your comic skills, even if you can only draw stick figures!
