Press Release: Seven Seas Launches Tabletop Games Division/Kickstarts its First Game: Space Dandy

Seven Seas Entertainment is delighted to announce the launch of its all-new tabletop games division, Seven Seas Games. Combining its passion and expertise in the manga and anime fields with the ability to create high quality original products, Seven Seas Games will meld the anime aesthetic with strategic card and board games, introducing fans to a whole new way of experiencing their favorite titles.

From deck-building card games to strategic board games, to games incorporating miniature figures, Seven Seas Games will offer a wide variety of exciting new games based on popular anime properties, and original titles as well.

“Both manga and board games are cited as two areas of growth in the publishing industry,” says Seven Seas President Jason DeAngelis, “We’ve decided to combine both, appealing to manga and anime fans as well as gamers in a whole new way.”

Upcoming games released by Seven Seas Games will be available for purchase through a variety of retailers and distribution outlets starting in late 2015.

Seven Seas Games, the newly-formed gaming division of Seven Seas Entertainment, is thrilled to announce the launch of a Kickstarter for their first game title – Space Dandy: Galactic Deck-Building Game. As seen on TOONAMI™ on ADULT SWIM™, Space Dandy is a hit anime series created by legendary director, Shinichiro Watanabe, best known for his work on the series Cowboy Bebop. For its millions of viewers, this Space Dandy card game brings the show’s zany space-faring antics straight from their screens to the gaming table.

Space Dandy: Galactic Deck-Building Game is a strategic card game in the same vein as other deck-builders like Dominion and Ascension. The game contains over two hundred cards, forty star tokens, four player boards, one “orbit” board, and a full-color rulebook. The Kickstarter campaign will offer fans the opportunity to purchase the game early at discounted prices prior to its retail release. A premium limited edition of the game is also available, exclusive to Kickstarter, that includes a foil-stamped box sleeve, a series guide-book, stickers, posters, and other bonus swag.

“This is a really exciting project that I’m thrilled to be a part of,” said Clay Gardner, the designer of Space Dandy: Galactic Deck-Building Game. “Space Dandy is a unique series with outrageously fun characters that deserves an equally unique game. Through this Kickstarter campaign, we are going to bring fans an out-of-this-world experience.”

The Kickstarter campaign launches on March 4 and ends on April 8.
