As I´m a huge fan of anime, WWII, card games and pin-up art, I got quite curious about Kamikaze Games sexy anime WWII card game “El Alamein.” As the game is a mix of all those things, and what a great combination “El Alamein” is. However, I´m not familiar with Kamikaze´s previous card game “Barbarossa”. So I will have to check that one out as well. Anyhow, since “El Alamein” launched on Kickstarter on the 17th of September, things have worked like a charm for the Kamikaze team. Because the original goal was to collect $10,000, and so far “El Alamein” has raised over $136,000! (and there is still over two days left to go as well). In other words, Kamikaze Games seems to have a huge card game hit on their hands.

The Alternate art stock photo editions will be limited to 2,000 copies each and will both include a Limited Edition authenticity card that will only be in the first printing.

And it didn´t take me all that long to understand why a lot of people have backed “El Alamein” on Kickstarter either. Personally, I fund a huge liking to the game when I watched Board to Death TV´s “El Alamein” gameplay video. And luckily enough for us, “El Alamein” has been fully translated from Japanese to English, and the game is truly beautiful thanks to Atsuo Yoshizawa (the game Designer of Barbarossa and El Alamein). So what is “El Alamein” really all about then? Well, it´s a deck building card game (for 2-5 players ) that´s set in a fictional WWII universe where cute and sexy German military girls fight the British army forces over Africa. And “El Alamein” starts where Barbarossa left us off (you don´t have to own “Barbarossa” in order to play “El Alamein” though, as the game is an stand-alone extension).

Think what you want about “El Alamein”, but the art is top-notch with no doubt.

So what is it that makes “El Alamein” “special” then? (besides the things which I have already mentioned). Well, for starter. Many of the games cards can stay on the table in your front line, and they will remain there until an effect (battle circumstances) removes them. There is also a unique and interesting combat system to be found in “El Alamein”. And there exists many different card types in the game too (all of which operate differently from one and another).  You also get to keep one card at the end of each turn to bring with you to the next turn. So “if” you enjoyed “Barbarossa” (or similar card games to “Barbarossa”) then you´re probably going to enjoy “El Alamein” as well. And “hopefully” I will get a chance to try the game myself in the near future (as I really enjoy card games).
