[Excerpt from the manual of the officers of the Commission of Counter Ghoul [CCG] commonly referred to as “The Doves”]
“… for ghouls, eating regular food is totally impossible. Their organisms cannot assimilate anything but human flesh, with the exception of coffee. That is why a large number of them congregate in coffee shops, and act like humans to better blend into the population and commit their misdeeds.”
Tokyo is haunted by Ghouls, cannibalistic monsters eating human flesh. Humans are considered an easy prey, but the Inspectors of The Commission of Counter Ghoul (CCG) are watching. Their mission: finding and killing ghouls!
In this bluff-and-deduction board game, play as one of 15 different characters from the anime, including Kaneki, Touka, Juzo or Rize. Whether you are a mere human, a ghoul, or an investigator : roam the streets of Tokyo, keep your identity a secret, investigate, and cover your tracks!
It is up to you to uncover the other player’s real nature and come out on top. In the hostile environment, always keep in mind that everyone you run into might be a killer!
In Tokyo Ghoul, you will play as a Human, a Ghoul or an Inspector from the CCG. Your identity absolutely must remain a secret until the end of the game! You have one or more Objectives to complete to be declared the winner. For example, you must survive if you are a Human, or devouring a Human if you are a Ghoul, or killing a Ghoul if you are an Inspector.
Move from one place to another in Tokyo, thanks to the Locations tiles of the game: you may be able to interrogate any other player and may exchange one card with them if you want. Pay attention to the Actions with a red background: they are mandatory for all players and they might draw suspicion on several players…
