Monsters' Night: Terror Stirs
by Jerry M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/24/2016 01:33:43

Alright, so this is a pretty short book. It has a story that takes up two pages and features two binders looking for a new MajiMonster, a page on Monster Night and the warning signs that day is coming, and then 10 brand new monsters that are all pretty cool.

Definitely worth the money. Good job yet again, Late Knight Games!

MajiMonsters: The Monster-Catching Role-playing Game
by Customer Name Withheld [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/09/2016 03:18:40

I've been a fan of the pet monster genre since the original release of Pokémon Red and Blue (and, of course, the original digimon virtual pet before the show ever came out). Later, I loved games like Monster Rancher and Jade Cocoon…

I've been searching for a similar experience with Table Top Roleplaying Gaming and everything before MajiMonsters always fell short. This game delivers the best monster catching/training/battling genre in table top RPGs thus far. Not only that but it gives you an implicit setting/system that is fantasy (high, heroic, and dark) meets quasi-post-apocalyptic. Since the setting is more hinted instead super documented, you (as a GM) can create whatever the hell you want.

I definitely recommend MajiMonsters to everyone who has an interest in unique fantasy RPGs and pet monsters/monster catching/monster battling.

I hear it's great for kids too...but I'm a grown ass man and love it. Getting my first group together to play soon. Enjoy.

MajiMonsters: The Monster-Catching Role-playing Game
by Jerry M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/25/2016 18:05:24

Like Kevin I participated in Kickstarting the game and watched it's updates. Sadly I missed out on the chance to playtest it. For the last few days though I've been going over the book and even created a character just to see how hard it was. It's not. It was slow at first because it was a new system, but the more I look at it the quicker I expect it to go.

I've tried to make game nights using other systems for very similar types of play, but this is the first game I've ever seen that does it perfectly. If you want to represent any kind of game where you control monsters, this is the one to use.

Without a shadow of a doubt this system is well made, well thought out, and just plain fun. I look forward to running MajiMonster games for my friends and even my nieces.

MajiMonsters Adventure: Echoes of the Lost Empire
by James M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/14/2016 17:29:03

I was able to begin playing through this adventure with my son last night and not only is it a fantastic adventure for beginners (to table top RPGs in general or just to the Majimonsters System), but it has an engaging story, tons of intrigue and a number of interesting NPC, as well as plenty of adventure hooks for continuing the adventure long past Echoes itself.

The best part is that my 5 year old cannot wait to play again. If you are looking for a way to introduce your kids to table top RPGs, Majimonsters is a fantastic way to start!

MajiMonsters: The Monster-Catching Role-playing Game
by Kevin G. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/11/2016 09:49:43

I signed up for the Kickstarter while it was running, and have followed this product all the way through. The finished work is beautifully done, well written, and (most importantly) fun to play. My niece, nephew, and son (4, 8, and 8, respectively) loved playing through this with us, and even my older friends who enjoy Pathfinder and D&D got a kick out of the system. It's easy enough to learn and has a lot of depth that makes decisions worth it when leveling up. You have the ability to take most monsters and turn them on their head with the right spread of stats and powers chosen.

Overall a wonderful product from an amazing, new publisher who I look forward to seeing more from for a good, long time.

MajiMonsters: Playtest 2
by Chase H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/30/2015 19:44:02

Most of my critique come from the playtests habit of making things unclear, such as how when doing AOE attacks, do you roll once to hit and anything within the area that can't defend itself from the attack roll is damaged, or is it once per creature. Another thing that confused me is the matter of binder vs monster combat. Here is the situation all of your bound monsters have been defeated by a wild horde, unbound monsters can attack humans, so the humans need to be able to defend themselves, but humans cannot deal damage to monsters, and running away isn't always an option. The book says that all weapons deal 1D6 damage, but thats only useful against other humans, and also doesn't make sence (a dagger does not equal a longsword) One last foggy area for me may be my fault, but I am a little unclear on what round options and response actions are and when I can do it, from my current understanding is battles go; Movement, Attack, Round, Enemy Turn, Enemy Attack, My response.

My suggestions on what to change and add are as follows

  1. Abandon the rule stating binders cannot damage monsters. Binder stats are so low anyways that it is NEARLY impossible to hit to begin with, but at least you have a chance.

  2. Create a dedicated Weapons list. 1D6 doesn't work for all weapons and is necessary for binder combat, I don't want to play as a monster task master, I want to fight alongside my monster. (Consider weapons affecting Wombatant armed trait)

  3. Within the how to play manual create a short and simple play by play battle, nothing fancy just enough to show when you can perform your actions.

  4. Create a larger inventory list (consider a full page, that includes how to roll damage for certain weapons). I realize that the current inventory list includes a lengthy description but currently with that description you can have 2-3 items in your inventory.

  5. . . ish. The rule stating that if your monster shares affinity with the technique it is using add its affinity bonus seems a little redundant, your being rewarded for knowing something that you know. (I have mixed feelings over this)
