  • Tokyo Game Market 2023 Autumn: Part 1 (Board Games Recommended for English Speakers)

    "Tokyo Game Market" is the largest event in Japan (Over 1,000 booths will be set up) where Board Games are sold! I will also be participating as a customer! When I posted on the Twitter (New: X), it was viewed over 7,000 times, and I received over 50 comments... As a board gamer who can speak English, I felt some sense of duty to share it on my blog and YouTube. I'll be introducing things based on the comments I received, completely subjectively, like "I like this! It seems interesting!" I'll also mix in things I think would be exciting if they were in our store. (We plan to put it in the cafe as soon as we buy it, so please play in "DyCE" cafe.) By writing this, I'm worried that what I want to buy on the day might be sold out, but someday, I'll come across it, and I want to introduce Japanese board games to the world. So, I'll update the blog simultaneously in Japanese and English! I hope that Japanese board games become even more widely known among people overseas! So, this time, the following is what I tweeted... Games that can be played in both Japanese and English Games that take 45 minutes or less Liked by girls / Liked by foreigners / Even better if it's hilarious! DyCE is the first Board Game × Language Exchange Cafe in Japan! As Part 1 I want to recommend it to people for English Speakers! (By the way, I haven't seen the actual products, so please make the final judgment at the venue.) ~~~~~~~~Board Games : Recommended for English Speakers~~~~~~~~~~ ① Prejudice Profile (偏見プロフィール) Booth: Both days "サ(sa)-17" Price: ¥2,000 Time: 10- Players: 2- Age: 12- Language: Japanese / You can play with foreigners if you translate the topics! Points to note: Judging people by appearance! ? A cooperative game enjoyable for everyone! Using cards featuring fictional characters created by "AI," participants respond to prompts related to appearance, hobbies, favorite songs, etc. The starting player then tries to determine if they can identify the AI-generated character based solely on those responses! If you try it, you might hear discussions like "Ah! I understand!" "Huh? Why does that happen?" Because conversations will be lively, it might be good for studying Japanese / English or languages! Game details: ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ② Your Ranking 7 (あなたランキング7) Booth: Saturday "ス(Su)-07" Price: ¥3,000 Time: 30-45 Players: 3-8 Age: 8- Language: Japanese / You can play with English speakers if you translate the topics! Points to note: It's not just about scoring points by guessing the opponent's ranking!? From there, creating roles with ranking chips adds a unique twist, which is great! You can discuss why the other person likes or dislikes something, making it a potential language learning opportunity in Japanese/English and more! If you play with someone from overseas, the differences in perception between countries could make it even more interesting!! Game details: ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ③ Okonomi (オコノミ) Booth: Both days "テ(Te)-26" Price: ¥2,000 Time: 10-20 Players: 2-5 Age: 5- Language: Japanese / Even without language, you can play if you read the rulebook! Points to note: Like making real okonomiyaki, choose ingredients and flip the dough! It's a game! A game that makes you want to teach Non-Japanese what "Okonomiyaki" is. The components are so cute, so I thought, "I want to buy it." hahaha Game details: ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ④ Snow Planner (スノープランナー) Booth: Both days "ト(To)-16" Price: ¥7,000 Time: 40-120 Players: 1-4 Age: 12~ Language: Japanese / English. Individual boards and each card have both Japanese and English, and actions are also indicated by icons, so you can enjoy playing with foreigners! Points to note: It's quite a heavy game! Perfect for me who likes heavy games too much! And when it comes to winter, it's skiing! Become the owner of the hotel on the slope and satisfy the guests! It seems like it would be a lot of fun during a ski and snowboard trip at night! Game details: ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ⑤ Madorite (マドリテ) Booth: Both days "ナ(Na)-09" Price: ¥2,000 Time: 10-30 Players: 3-5 Age: 12- Language: Japanese / If you understand the rules, all actions are indicated by icons! Points to note: For those who want to gradually increase the difficulty and challenge themselves in board games! Create layouts that respond to customer budgets and requests, aim for more contracts and higher customer satisfaction! A game unique to Japan with the setting of a Japanese-style room! and allows you to teach Japanese culture to foreigners who may not be familiar with "tatami"! Game details : ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ⑥ BAN Booth: Both days "ノ(No)-62" Price: ¥1,000 Time: 10- Players: 3- Age: 3- (This is an estimate as there is no notation.) Language: Japanese / Since action cards are read by everyone, you should be able to play! Points to note: Well. I like this kind of silly game too! lol The person who collects the most pairs wins. However, the cards also include command cards such as "Keep your hands raised the whole time" or "Do not show your teeth when speaking"! With each matched pair, the game becomes progressively more chaotic and amusing. If you play with good friends, there will be lots of laughter. The scene is expected to become chaotic! lol It's even more chaotic if you drink alcohol. It's the best! Game details: ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ For now, this time's Part 1 (Board Game Edition Recommended for EnglishSpeakers) is the above 6 selections! If there are board games you're interested in, I'll update this page again! For those who can't go to Game Market, try playing at DyCE, a board game cafe in Shibuya! My wish is for cross-cultural awareness of board games between Japan and overseas. So, if I have free time, I can also provide immediate translations for the latest board games from Japan and overseas, so you can play them right away! The owner is a woman, and the cafe is free-spirited and super casual, haha. So feel free to enjoy yourself, have fun! --------------------------------------------------------------- 🌎DyCE Global Board Game Cafe🌎 First language exchange Board game cafe in Japan Make friends, enjoy games & practice Japanese in Shibuya! ◆Web & Booking: ◆Google Map: 5min from Shibuya Crossing< /a> 2F Sg Building, 2-17-3 Dogenzaka, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 150-0043TEL: 03-6161-1100 ◆Instagram:< /p> ◆YouTube: ◆Facebook: ◆X (旧 : Twitter)

  • DyCE Global & Board Game blog start

    Nice to meet you. I'm Marina, the owner of DyCE Global Board Game Cafe. I've always wanted to share the worlds I've seen, both overseas and in Japan, through streaming. Finally, I've decided to give it a try. As for updates, they will happen whenever I feel like it, and I'll write about things I want to share, such as: - Thoughts about my future during university - The story of a woman in her late twenties suddenly quitting her job and starting a business - Backpacking and studying abroad experiences - About board games from overseas - About board games in Japan - Views on love and marriage between Japanese and foreign individuals - Thoughts on working and perspectives in Japan and abroad Anyway, the blog will mostly revolve around board games and travel, so if you're interested, please check it out. By the way, although it might appear that I speak English, as a Japanese individual, please understand that there might be mistakes in spelling, grammar, and everything else. I plan to write this blog as I please, while drinking, whenever I feel like it. I hope you enjoy reading it, whether you share the same feelings or have opinions. I appreciate your warm support, whether you find it relatable or have something to say. For those who visit the cafe, I'm Marina and am occasionally around, so feel free to chat anytime. So, with that said, the blog has started. -------------------------------------------------- ---------------- 🌎DyCE Global Board Game Cafe🌎 First language exchange Board game cafe in Japan Make friends, enjoy games & practice Japanese in Shibuya! ◆Web & Booking: ◆Google Map: 5min from Shibuya Crossing< /a> 2F Sg Building, 2-17-3 Dogenzaka, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 150-0043TEL: 03-6161-1100 ◆Instagram:< /p> ◆YouTube: ◆Facebook:
