An upcoming Card Battle Game,

by Chris Lin

Shoubu is currently in a new phase of development with a new team and publisher, on track for launch during or before 2022. 

Let the battle begin!

Take on the role of an Entrant, whose unique fighting style is represented by Standees and Decks with wildly different mechanics.

Card-built mechanics.
Shoubu's core rules are relatively basic, with a reaction system that allows both players to take actions on each others' turns. This leaves the development of each deck's mechanics to the cards themselves - combined with beautiful Standees, Shoubu brings a level of physical, real-time immersion often missing from tabletop gaming. 

Here are the most current rules.

Shoubu is built on an excitingly deep lore.

We'll be fleshing out the story and world of Shoubu beyond the traditional scope of a card game, approaching it as one might approach an open world RPG world - that means character design sheets, landscape sketches, and more! Each Entrant will even be getting a Piano Solo theme to build their characters even more!
