Monster World in the anime
Monster World is a tabletop RPG (Role Playing Game), similar to Dungeons and Dragons, from the manga, which also appears in the first series anime.
- The board is Bakura's custom 10x20 setup, including a town, forest, and castle areas.
- The Dark Master plays the monsters and the "boss" of the adventure. The adventurers try to defeat the Dark Master.
- Bakura used his computer to enter the character data.
- In areas where monsters appear, Bakura rolls two ten-sided dice, to get a number from 0 to 99. If the number is less than the probability of a monster appearing, a monster will appear. The monsters are stronger the lower the number rolled.
- If a player rolled a 99 (critical fumble), or Bakura rolled a 00 for Zorc (supercritical hit), the player would be trapped inside their character's miniature.
