Tabletop University Play Report: Kaijudo

Cardboard Carnage was truly excited to have our very first guest host, Dominic G., offer to teach the trading card game, Kaijudo to gamers at our last Tabletop University event!!! Dominic came prepared to teach and run a free tournament that night. The turnout was beyond AMAZING! And, Dominic handled it like a pro!

The good news: a good-sized group of gamers joined together and battled it out for cool prizes. AND they had a lot of fun!

The bad news: we all read the disappointing announcement (on the day of the event…) that Kaijudo cards are no longer going to be printed… I think it still remains to be seen if a digital version of the game will be released for online play, to hopefully appease some of the fans.

Even with the bad news, Dominic put on a smiley face. The show must go on.
