The game’s main goal is to evade the relentless pursuit of none other than Satoru Gojo — the strongest sorcerer in Jujutsu Kaisen.

That’s right — instead of playing the heroes, you’ll take on the roles of the series’ popular villains.

The Japanese board game will make its debut in Spring 2024.

The majority of players embody cursed spirits, each navigating the perilous challenges within the game. However, one participant will assume the formidable role of Gojo, tasked with tracking down and confronting the elusive villains.

The battle between Gojo and Geto’s forces in Shibuya is pivotal in Jujutsu Kaisen’s story.

On October 31, 2018, Geto initiated his intricate plan to trap Satoru Gojo in the prison realm.

Shibuya becomes a battleground as special-grade cursed spirits, including Mahito, Jogo, Hanami, and Dagon, unleash havoc, attempting to gain the upper hand in the Jujutsu world.

Fans familiar with the series know all too well that facing Gojo head-on is a futile endeavor.

The board game uses this fact and creates a scenario that challenges players to employ cunning strategies and run away from the virtually unbeatable blue-eyed sorcerer.
