Mobile Suit Gundam Jabro - Hexagonal Gundam Strategy Board Game 30th Anniversary Re-Release

Mobile Suit Gundam Jabro (Order Date Begins: Aug 29th 2011, Price: 7630 yen) *5 business days delivery, Japan*
MSG Jabro is a 30th anniversary re-release the masterpiece Gundam hexagonal strategy board game that would sold in Japan all the way back in the year 1981.  Definitely a colleciton item for the old-school gamers and a great strategy game for the Gundam armchair general inside of us.  The game includes game board maps that ranges from desert to urban settings, game rule book, score cards, and game pieces.
First, let's look at what you get in the box.
Its name is "Jabro."
Rather that the newest technology, this original Gundam simulation is a classic analog board game.
Released thirty years ago by Tsukuda Hobby during the first Gundam boom, it was enjoyed at home and at clubs by many Gundam fans.
And now, Jabro will be reprinted by Megahouse!
With box art just like the original, with pieces just like the original!
 - The Jaburo map, for replaying the assault on the Federation HQ.
- The field map, for replaying the confrontation with Denim's squad or the Black Tri-Stars.
- The desert map, for replaying the battle with Ramba Ral.
- The city map, for replaying the battle with Garma's detachment.
Unit sheets
The units are the unique point of the game, and vital for its play. They're tiny and there are many different types, so be sure not to lose any!
There are three unit sheets: One for Federation mobile suits, weapons, tanks, and flak; one for Zeon MSes and weapons, and one for pilots and status. Each is just waiting to be neatly punched out and placed in the unit tray.
MS units must be combined with pilot units and weapon units before entering combat. After taking damage in combat, they are first marked with a status unit, then destroyed and removed from the board.
Unit trayA tray to hold the detached units. The tray in this release is just like the original! It holds a vintage-style black die and white die.
The player's fate rests on these dice!
Data sheet
Used to smoothly resolve combat. Contains hit and firepower charts, and damage, close combat, and melee tables to cover all kinds of combat.
The password is "Miracle snake eyes! Critfail on a 6!
RulebookA reprint of the Second Edition rules. Read this, punch out the units, and you're good to go!

  1. Might have to get that, somehow...

  2. Hey GG, any plan to stock this? Because... Well... I want it. <_<

    I'd hope I'm not the only one who'd get it either (maybe you should start having polls of which novelty items, special figures,etc blog viewers/customers would want). It would certainly be an interesting item for you to have in stock.

  3. Any chance of this being released in English?
