Game Market 2020 Autumn - November 14-15 2020
(The official Japanese site: Game Market 2020秋)

It's been a while since I've posted about the Tokyo Game Market since I took a 4-5ish year break. But this year I am slowly getting back into the swing of things.

I only have a small budget this year so Here are my hot picks for some games to keep an eye out for. Since I WANT all of these games this is my little key (legend):

MUST WANT
REALLY WANT
WANT
CURIOUS

Most of these games in this Geeklist only have Japanese text, but it might be interesting if you like to follow games from Japan.

EETENKI MUST HAVE
Players are priestesses in Japan divining and manipulating the weather to grow the best rice crop in their land. On a players turn they must risk/don't risk their rice crop in their production fields to try gain better quality crop. If they predict well they can gain rice/jade rewards. But the weather is a fickle creature, a thunderstorm could devastate all your crop if you don't plan well.

PLAYERS: 2-4
TIME: 45-90

LANGUAGE: Japanese version at the Game Market (English version in the works)

WHY IT's ON MY RADAR:
This game has so many unique elements to it. At first I was on the fence, but the game is so thematic and different to any other game I've ever played. I think it might be my favourite for 2020.

Dragon Scary-go-round MUST HAVE
Gather around adventurers...come and fight the dragon in the castle. In this lovely coop, players are trying to work together by planning their moves to attack the dragon to take him out, but watch out for those scheming ghosts! You always have to plan way in advanced, if you can setup correctly then you can attack the dragon at the start of your next turn.

PLAYERS: 2-4
TIME: 40

LANGUAGE: Japanese version at the Game Market (English version in the works)

WHY IT's ON MY RADAR:
This was the game that really got me back into the swing of things this year. I've only tried the online prototype version, but fell in love with this game instantly. It's really doujin, and it's really special. It feels like one of those games you will remember having a good time with and feeling that positive nostalgic feel about.

Izayoi MUST HAVE
Learn the way of a Japanese artisan by trying to collect the best art. But don't be too greedy, if you embarrass your master and overshadow them you can never win. Take a breath, and keep your hidden master a secret, if others find out which one of the Japanese arts you are going for they may force your hand.

PLAYERS: 3-5
TIME: 15-30

LANGUAGE: Japanese version at the Game Market (English version in the works)

WHY IT's ON MY RADAR:
I had the privilege of trying this game out this year, and my friends and I loved it. The artwork is soooo beautiful plus it is a very thematic game. It resonates well especially to those who love Japanese culture. Just don't outdo your master!

ミステリーパーティー ・イン・ザ・ボックス
MYSTERY PARTY IN THE BOX (series)
THE ENDLESS MIDSUMMER
WANT
and
THE WITCH GONE WITH THE DUSK

This is a brand new game in their series of MYSTERY PARTY IN THE BOX.
This is #6 and #7 of the series. Each box contacts a set of resources and clues. Players are given a character. Work together to solve the crime.

PLAYERS: 6-7
TIME: 150 mins
CREATORS: Cosaic & Group SNE

LANGUAGE: Japanese version at the Game Market. Very language dependent.

WHY IT's ON MY RADAR:
The box looks awesome. Plus I'm wondering why it hasn't crossed my path before. It must be good if they made 2 more boxes. Now I want to know about the other series.

タングルウィード TANGLEWEED MUST HAVE
I submitted the game registration into the BGG Game queue
Roll on down some タングルウィード tangleweeds (tumbleweed)! Read the wind and see where you can send the tumbleweed. But new land to expand the playing feed. Roll the tumbleweed as far as it goes. Where ever it lands it'll drop a seed.

PLAYERS: 2-4
TIME: 60min (ages 10+)

LANGUAGE: Japanese version at the Game Market
Language specific. The cards have text.

WHY IT's ON MY RADAR: A game about rolling tumbleweeds? Hello, how cute!

BEASTORY WANT
I submitted the game in the BGG game registration queue
Players work cooperatively to travel on a 5 day journey deep into the Emerald Forest to battle the monsters. They can upgrade their skills along the way, but may encounter difficulties. The deeper into the forest they go, the more dangerous it becomes.

The game name is a play on words:
Be a story
BEASTORY

PLAYERS: 1-6
TIME: 45-60

LANGUAGE: Japanese version at the Game Market. Heavy language dependency.

WHY IT's ON MY RADAR:
The art caught my attention. But since a lot of the components are in Japanese I wonder if I will be able to decipher the game.
