▼What is an analog game?
A general term for games that do not require a power source, including board games, card games, table games, TRPGs (Table Talk Role Playing Games), TCGs (Trading Card Games), murder mystery games, etc. While the games themselves are fun, they are also attracting attention as a face-to-face “communication tool” in recent years as digitalization continues to advance.

Game Market is a major event where people of all ages can enjoy analog games all day long. The event has been held for over 20 years since it was first held in 2000, and has grown in size year by year, with the number of visitors currently reaching around 20,000 each year.
