A French startup called 'Anthea Editions' recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for a 3D-printed board game called 'mARENA The Elementary Gladiators.' By combining the nostalgic elements of Pokémon with contemporary game play, mARENA gives adults an opportunity to train like gladiators in a fantasy world.

mARENA is a two-player board game that uses 3D-printed animal figurines as game pieces. Each animal is assigned different advantages and disadvantages, which are kept secret until the players engage in combat. Each player must then rely on magic and a series of strategic moves in order to claim victory. The format of the game is similar to Pokémon, giving it a hint of nostalgia that many adults are sure to appreciate.

For those looking for a fantasy game that is both engaging and entertaining, mARENA is the perfect option.
