"Sanshiro's chances of having an adventure are slim to none in his tiny island hometown, until the day a mysterious stranger invites him to play a game. Without warning, Sanshiro is taken to a backwards universe to play BakéGyamon, a game pitting monsters against monsters. Along the way he meets other players who have a particular reason for being there -- to obtain the wish that is granted to the winner. But how far can Sanshiro get when the monsters he's been paired with are a bunch of little mud balls?" -- p. [4] of cover.

A fun adventure awaits you in this monster mash-up where children's games have taken on an advanced appearance. Everyone participating is trying to obtain their wish, except Sanshiro, who just wants an adventure, and to make friends. His co-operative nature, kindness, enthusiasm, and courage make him a likeable boy. Behind this seemingly innocent game could be more than they bargained for though. There are quite a few mysteries to solve before they will understand the true meaning behind everything.
