I've been a fan of the pet monster genre since the original release of Pokémon Red and Blue (and, of course, the original digimon virtual pet before the show ever came out). Later, I loved games like Monster Rancher and Jade Cocoon…

I've been searching for a similar experience with Table Top Roleplaying Gaming and everything before MajiMonsters always fell short. This game delivers the best monster catching/training/battling genre in table top RPGs thus far. Not only that but it gives you an implicit setting/system that is fantasy (high, heroic, and dark) meets quasi-post-apocalyptic. Since the setting is more hinted instead super documented, you (as a GM) can create whatever the hell you want.

I definitely recommend MajiMonsters to everyone who has an interest in unique fantasy RPGs and pet monsters/monster catching/monster battling.

I hear it's great for kids too...but I'm a grown ass man and love it. Getting my first group together to play soon. Enjoy.

Like Kevin I participated in Kickstarting the game and watched it's updates. Sadly I missed out on the chance to playtest it. For the last few days though I've been going over the book and even created a character just to see how hard it was. It's not. It was slow at first because it was a new system, but the more I look at it the quicker I expect it to go.

I've tried to make game nights using other systems for very similar types of play, but this is the first game I've ever seen that does it perfectly. If you want to represent any kind of game where you control monsters, this is the one to use.

Without a shadow of a doubt this system is well made, well thought out, and just plain fun. I look forward to running MajiMonster games for my friends and even my nieces.

I signed up for the Kickstarter while it was running, and have followed this product all the way through. The finished work is beautifully done, well written, and (most importantly) fun to play. My niece, nephew, and son (4, 8, and 8, respectively) loved playing through this with us, and even my older friends who enjoy Pathfinder and D&D got a kick out of the system. It's easy enough to learn and has a lot of depth that makes decisions worth it when leveling up. You have the ability to take most monsters and turn them on their head with the right spread of stats and powers chosen.

Overall a wonderful product from an amazing, new publisher who I look forward to seeing more from for a good, long time.
