Japan makes card game to help kids raise disaster prevention awareness

The Japan Self-Defense Forces and Okayama Prefecture are trying to get kids in particular more interested in disaster preparedness with a new card game. This is the first time the Japanese military has developed a card game. The game has its own elaborate setup, rules, and custom characters that represent different branches of the military.

In the game, players are presented with disaster scenarios in event cards such as torrential downpours, blizzards, earthquakes, tsunamis, and even biohazards. Players then draw seven cards from a shuffled deck and combine different character cards and vehicle cards to win against the event card.


Right now, the card game is only available in Okayama Prefecture, which is one of the areas hit particularly hard by typhoons last year. Judging from the card’s website, the game could be made available in other areas of Japan in the future.
