Imagining the Game Using Anime themes and characters, I will create a board game playable by 2 to 6 players ages, ages 12 and older. Theme of this strategy game: All players begin at the same point and have the goal of reaching the highest level possible. They can accomplish this by strategy cards that give special powers to them, take powers from competing characters, or allow attacks against other players. two versions: Tabletop game for home play; a magnetic version for playing while traveling in a car will follow success of 1st version
