Animal Kingdom Pirates One Piece Card Game Review

Animal Kingdom Pirates

Embark on a thrilling One Piece Card Game adventure with the fearless Animal Kingdom Pirates Starter Deck, led by the legendary Captain Kaido, in the enchanting world of One Piece! As fans engage in epic battles and experience the fascinating saga first-hand, this Trading Card Game (TCG) brings the beloved anime series to life. Get ready to embark on an exciting journey into the realm of One Piece card gaming with the Animal Kingdom Pirates Starter Deck!


This deck is packed with impressive crew members, featuring Captain Kaido himself, Captain Ulti, Sesaki, Sheephead, Jack, Ginrummy, Who’s Who, Black Maria, Page One, and X.Drake. Decks like this one are designed for offense, displaying powerful characters like Kaido, whose power level reaches 10,000! In addition, the deck also contains great events and character abilities that let you "discard" Don cards to defeat enemies quickly. The characters in this deck each bring their unique strengths to the table, adding excitement and depth to the gameplay.

Ginrummy, Sheephead, and Black Maria are also featured in the deck; they might not pack a powerful punch individually but are perfect for filling out your character area, especially during the early game.
The ingenious use of Don cards is what sets this deck apart. Don cards can be added or discarded to perform a variety of abilities. These versatile cards allow you to execute various strategies.

What I Think

With its unparalleled offensive capabilities and exciting Don card manipulation, the Animal Kingdom Pirates Starter Deck delivers an exhilarating and joyous gameplay experience. The deck leans more towards offense, so you must be strategic if you want to defend appropriately. No need to worry because the deck includes four Blast Breath event cards that boost your counter-power by +4000 by simply returning or discarding one Don card. Using these event cards, you can defend against your opponents with style and finesse. Moreover, you can intercept and discard enemy cards with the help of blockers like Queen and Black Maria.

Captain Kaido is the star of this show! Get ready to unleash his mind-blowing Activate: Main ability. You can eliminate your opponent's top life card by discarding seven Don cards. This can lead to victory by leaving your opponents trembling and putting them on the spot. The Onigashima Island Stage card also features a helpful ability. This card allows you to accumulate and preserve valuable Don cards by adding one Don rested card to the Cost area.


Overall, the Animal Kingdom Pirates Starter Deck brings an exhilarating and joy-filled gameplay experience to the One Piece Card Game universe. For players seeking excitement and adventure on the high seas, it's an absolute delight. It may not be suitable for beginners due to its unique mechanics, but it is an absolute gem for experienced players looking for a thrilling and rewarding experience. So gather your crew, chart your course, and prepare for an unforgettable journey filled with epic battles and memorable moments.
