Grab your headband, practice your favorite jutsus, and get ready to run with your arms stretched out directly behind you. The ninjas are hitting the arena floor in Naruto: Ninja Arena. This new competitive board game is available to order from Japanime Games now.
From the announcement:
Naruto: Ninja Arena is a competitive, fast-paced game all about simultaneous dice rolling for 2-6 players, ages 10 and up. You and your opponents all take on characters in the Naruto universe battling it out in real-time to be the last ninja standing. Take control of your favorite Chuunin Exam Hidden Leaf characters and fight to survive!
Every character has their own abilities and each player has their own dice pools. As a round starts, all players roll their dice at the same time, trying to match symbols on their dice based on what character abilities they have (as seen above). As players activate abilities, they will mark their opponents for potential, future damage. Once a player has correctly collected the necessary symbols for their ultimate, special ability, they'll slap an Uzumaki spiral in the center of the board to signify this, and the damage is dealt.
In this brief pause, the player who slapped the spiral last will take extra damage and the players will resolve the effects. This damage is applied based on the markers distributed by players activating their abilities.
