100% Orange Juice is a goal focused board game, played with charters from other popular anime games which have been released recently. The game has been on Steam since mid 2013 and has an estimated 150k owners.
The rules of the game to begin with seem very overwhelming, dice are being rolled, characters are moving and you have no idea what is going on. I played/read the tutorial and this does help a bit to teach you the rules; but you will get more benefit out of just playing a game and learning as you go. Each board/stage has various different squares, monster squares, pick up a card from the deck, teleport, coins, drops, and home. You roll a single D6 to move around the board. You have to complete 5 goals to win the game. The first goal that everyone starts each game with, is collect 10 coins.After you have completed this goal you then get to choose your following goals, you can continue hunting for coins, or you can switch to try kill a certain amount of monsters or players. My personal preference was to go for killing players as also drop goal too, meaning I could swap between the two goals to keep them as easy to accomplish as possible.
The graphics are generic anime style; although I watch a grand zero amount of anime, the art style does appeal to me. The cute sprites and levels are really colourful and are pleasing on the eye.
I did struggle for the first few stages of the game with the difficulty; but this was probably because I was still learning the rules, but once you pass the second level you should be plain sailing, I would recommend you play the game on the highest speed setting as some stages can go on for upwards of 40+ turns.
I finished the single player campaign with one character in just under four hours. Most of the gameplay and content for this game is to be found in the multiplayer mode; sadly I didn't see the option for a local multiplayer but you can certainly connect with friends online to play a round.
I can happily recommend 100% Orange Juice; it will have a home in some people's libraries if they are a fan of board games, it is not a fast paced game so some people may not like it; but if you want an evening of sitting back in your chair rolling dice over a cute little board game, 100% Orange Juice will easily quench your thirst (I'm sorry for that horrible pun!)
