The Tanto Cuore Card Game - International Kickstarter will bring the hit anime themed deck building card game to Europe and beyond! Our goal is to fund four languages during this campaign: French, Spanish, German and Italian. If at least 250 people back the Base Game Pledge Level for each language, we will commit to making the Tanto Cuore Base Game in that language!  

In addition to funding on Kickstarter, Japanime Games will be tracking funding across all five crowdfunding campaigns, in five different languages! Why is this exciting? Because stretch goals will be announced based on the TOTAL amount raised across all 4 campaigns! This means more stretch goals will be reached in less time!

How do I get Promos!?

What if you don't need Tanto Cuore in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish? Don't worry! There is something for everyone in the Tanto Cuore International Campaign. The $25 Playmat Pledge Level will get you the Tanto Cuore International Kickstarter Exclusive Playmat AND a set of all Stretch Goal Promo Cards, so you won't miss out on any of the Tanto Cuore fun if you already have a copy of the game! 

What if my language does not receive 250 backers? What happens to my pledge?!

If your language does not receive 250 backers towards the very end of the campaign, Japanime Games will have two choices:

1. If we are close to 250 backers AND there is extra funding, we might just make it anyway!

2. If we are not close to 250 backers, we will be forced to cancel the campaign for that language edition of the game and you will not be charged.

We feel confident the there are backers who will enjoy Tanto Cuore in every language! But we need your help! Please share and promote your language with your friends and online network. Tanto Cuore is a great game, and we know there are at least 250 people in each language who would love to have this game! But they need to know about it, so sharing is essential.

Also, if you have any recommendations on websites, blogs, forums, social media or new sources in the Anime or Boardgaming community please let us know so that we can have someone on our team contact them. Anyone that helps spread the word (please let us know via PM or email! ) will be eligible for extra promo cards to be sent along with their game - we've got Toni Darling promos, Mimoza promos, and some very cool and very rare promos to offer up as well!

What is Tanto Cuore?
What is Tanto Cuore?

Not familiar with Tanto Cuore? Tanto Cuore is a deck building card game for 2-4 players. The players take the roles of “Master of the House,” employ a lot of cute maids, and are served by them while slowly filling out their house (card deck).

But take care! The maids can become sick or get bad habits. When the game ends, the player who has the most Victory Point-gaining maids on his staff (all his cards) is the “perfect master” and the winner of the game.

Tanto Cuore has been a huge success in Japan and the US, and Japanime Games feels confident that international backers will enjoy it (especially playing in their native tongue!)

How do you play?
How do you play?

Each player begins with a deck of seven "1 Love" cards and 3 "Colette" cards. After shuffling them thoroughly, players draw five cards to keep in their hand. Players can then take turns using their Love cards to employ maids from the Town. Once a maid is employed it goes in to the players discard and will be shuffled in to the deck to be played later. 

Set Up
Set Up

The most unique aspect of Tanto Cuore is the Chambering Effect. Certain maids, like Private Maids are put directly in to a Masters Private Chamber where their effect will be activated for the entire game. Other maids have greater benefits when they are put in to the Private Chamber such as enhanced Victory Points or Victory Point bonuses at the end of the game.  

The game ends once 2 piles of maids from the Town are empty. The player with the most Victory Points at the end of the game, wins!

Shipping Info: There is no extra shipping cost for this playmat if you live in the EU, US or Canada. If you live elsewhere please add $10 extra for shipping. 

Why get a playmat? To protect your cards from wear and tear on table tops, and to give your Tanto Cuore card stacks a designated area to be organized! Not to mention the playmat is simply a gorgeous thing to have around!

What is a standard sized playmat versus an oversized playmat? Standard sized playmats are often used for card games like Tanto Cuore or Magic the Gathering and measure 14.25"x24.24." For deck building card game such as Tanto Cuore, an oversized playmat can offer more set up and play space than a standard sized playmat.

Risks and challenges

Japanime Games is dedicated to improving our process with every Kickstarter.

- Our pre-press production team has been working tirelessly to get everything ready for this campaign before the launch of the Kickstarter. A few elements of the production process are still waiting on approval and/or have not been finalized yet. The translations are still on going, however we have a lot of experience in translating and producing games and we feel confident in our estimated production schedule!
- The living Production Schedule graphic will be available regularly and will facilitate more updates with more details about exactly what we are working on. This has greatly increased our transparency as a company, so you know exactly who is doing what, when and where.

Given the extensive time and research we have already put in to this project, we do not expect delays. However we will notify you immediately if any delays or the potential for delays do occur. We will explain in detail the source of the delay and offer a new estimated time frame to the best of our ability. AND we added 2 extra months to the expected time frame for this campaign, just to be safe.

One other thing to mention: While we are always open to your input and suggestions regarding both our Kickstarter management and the game itself please keep in mind: we are publishers, not the game developers or designers. This means that we do not control the game content. Art and game play is finalized. Please keep that in mind when suggesting new promotional items and ideas.
