Hi, I'm a Kamen Rider fan since 1971. I'm think of making a strategy game based on the first generation Kamen Riders. I will use a point to point system map of Japan (like Pandemic). The Kamen Rider players must cooperate to stop the evil plots of Shocker player before it's too late (like Middle Earth Quest). What do you think? Anyone classic Kamen Rider fans here?

The map would be like this:
 



Some counter samples:


Some card samples:

 


Any ideas are welcome.cool

In Japan, I've been told that Kamen Rider is usually for children and their mothers. At least in regards to the new series', with their action fight scenes, toy marketability and handsome young male actors.

By using the older series' you can pick up on the nostalgia of it, which I think is a plus. And from what I've seen of Kamen Rider (which, I admit is very little), the older series' would make for more mechanic possibilities, as the new Kamen Rider series' seem to be more about one on one battles.

I've not played Middle Earth Quest, so I don't know how those mechanics work.

From the description it's a little vague for me to imagine how the game will pan out. Seems interesting though.

Did you come up with the game to match the theme, or the theme to match the game?

You're right. The main purpose of making this game is to retrieve the nostalgia feel of classic Kamen Riders.

I always dream of making boardgames based on my favorite TV shows in childhood: Ultraman, Kamen Rider, and Mobile Suit Gundam. After making an Ultraman-theme game (check here) and a Gundam game (check this), I decided to make one for Kamen Riders. It's not easy to create a good mechanic for it. The project is pending until I played MEQ recently. I found the mechanics of MEQ fit the Kamen Rider theme. So I started the project a couple of days ago. But not all systems in MEQ can fit into the KR game. The KR game is still in early stage. I need more ideas from other Kamen Rider fans.

I think it's not easy to get Kamen Rider fans here, even in this forum. I'm glad that you shared something about Kamen Riders with me.
