Samurai Jack: Back to the Past

Inspired by the fifth and final season of the animated series, Samurai Jack: Back to the Past puts players in feudal Japan where the warrior’s home is at the mercy of shape-shifting Master of Darkness, Aku. Take on the role of Jack’s beloved companions and help him banish inevitable corruption by earning Honor and gathering Allies, Weapons, and Traits for defense.

Samurai Jack: Back to the Past

The journey starts in your hands with seven impeccably sculpted vinyl movers, including the Scotsman, Ashi, Monkey Man, Sir Rothchild, and Max. Each adventurer will follow Jack and Aku’s figures through a colorful path of hexagonal tiles that randomize familiar locations from the series. Movement cards will facilitate their way through each turn, while three different sets of Support cards can be played as protection to thwart enemies and collect valuable Honor points.

Followers of Samurai Jack’s story will know the relevance of maintaining his “Sanity Meter” on the game board, which monitors Jack’s mental soundness in the wake of chance circumstances. Deterring the counter from reaching the end of the track will ensure our time traveler will survive the psychological torture brought on by battling Aku and other enemies!

A group of 2-5 players aged 13 and up can all rally to help Jack defeat villains and safe keep his senses. Lose collective control of the Sanity meter, and the game ends for everyone! But play wisely, and you can be the player with the most Honor points over the course of three rounds and win!

Pick up Samurai Jack: Back to the Past before an evil spell flings you into a future where harmony is no longer attainable. Your chance to settle the score for future generations is just a trip to your local game store away!
