Summer vacation is over! Steeped in ancient magic, invading aliens, rampaging super science, and heroic students, Takoashi University is no ordinary school. Within these glorious halls you and your fellow students are provided with the highest education in all of Japan. But Takoashi does not just educate your mind. No. You are also taught to become mighty warriors! You will learn how to defend yourself, how to strike, and how to move with the speed of thought. You will learn to become: Karate Masters!
A speed-matching card game, players alternate flipping cards to draw attack and skill cards which their opponent must attempt to block. Failure means your opponent wins the bout and takes the entire center pile of cards, increasing their strength. But, watch out! When a specific series of cards are played any player may slap the center pile and claim the cards. The player who wins all of the cards becomes the ultimate Karate Master!
