Dragon Ball Z Perfect Cell preview

Release Date: March 2018 | Number of Players: 1-4 | Game Length: 30–45 minutes

From BGG:

The Cell Games are on and the world’s greatest fighters have gathered see if they have what it takes to defeat Cell, the perfect warrior. Teaming up to take him down, Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Krillin, Trunks and Piccolo must strategize together to stop the supposedly unstoppable machine.


In Dragon Ball Z: Perfect Cell, 2-4 players will each take control of an iconic Dragon Ball Z fighter and roll their dice to generate energy. Using custom icons, players allocate their dice into performing attacks, helping other players or buying upgrades. Players need to work together though, as Cell will continue to generate new threats that can heal him, damage all players or lock players out of potentially game-changing upgrades.

I know very little about Dragon Ball Z, but this is a huge franchise with millions of fans, so there should be plenty of interest in this game. IDW Games has published a couple of cooperative games I’ve really enjoyed (Escape from 100 Million B.C., The Game), so I’m looking forward to playing this one. There are other Dragon Ball Z board games out there, but I believe this will be the first co-op.

You can pre-order Dragon Ball Z: Perfect Cell from CSI and you can see more information about the game at its BGG page.
