Japanese: the Game—Salaryman
Japanese: The Game is a language-learning card game. The cards in the game each have a Japanese word on the obverse. Players use these cards to build melds following a colour pattern that forces the melds to be grammatically correct Japanese sentences.
The game has solo, collaborative, and competitive modes to allow for play and learning in both individual and social situations. The game play in competitive mode allows for building and improving one's melds to gain points that enable the player to eliminate opponents' melds.
The educational focus of the game is to practice sentence-building in a fun environment. This practice has the side-effect of exposing players to the vocabulary on the cards as well as training the mind to create proper Japanese sentences with any Japanese words they learn or already know.
We’ve all been there, dead tired after a long day at work, and the Japanese are no different. An entire culture surrounds the life of your average white-collar worker, and this is a deck that brings some of those concepts into your game. Not only are there words for your typical office work space, but terms for your superiors and fellow co-workers. At least playing with the Salaryman deck is a lot better than being at the office!
Each expansion to Japanese: The Game adds new vocabulary words, and thus the rules that go along with how each noun, verb, or particle can be placed to make a sentence.
The expansion decks are shuffled in with the main deck to accommodate more players (the game plays 2 by itself and needs either an additional core deck or an expansion to accommodate more), or just to add less common words to the mix for 1-2 players.
