|Naruto Shippuden: The Board Game is a cooperative game based on the travels of Naruto and his friends at the beginning of the Naruto: Shippuden series.
Each player has a character card showing Combat Ability, Chakra Reserve, and Strategy Value, as well as an experience track that allows them to power up over time. Each character also has a deck of fourteen ability cards, some common to each deck but most unique to that character.
Each turn a character takes two actions from move, meditate, or fight. When you fight, you roll dice, hoping for shuriken. You can play cards to increase the number of dice you roll, but you must spend Chakra to play them and both cards and Chakra are limited. The enemy fights back if you don't deal enough damage to it, possibly triggering special powers and additional effects in the process.
Naruto Shippuden: The Board Game features three levels of play and a large variety of enemies, making each game a unique experience.
