Henshin! is a easy to learn, fun to play narratively driven role playing game. Rather than rely on complicated dice-driven mechanics and a metric monster-ton of rules, the Cave of Monsters Games have focused on replicating the feel and mood of Japanese costumed superheroes.
What I particularly loved about Henshin was that there are never any "bad" decisions or "wasted" turns to make. Each choice contributes to moving the story forward in compelling ways that reward players for ROLE playing rather than ROLL playing. The collaborative elements of the game really shine through, with play books that help inspire you to think about how your archetype might respond to a situation, while giving you the freedom not to be bound up by complicated class and feat systems or the arbitrary roll of dice. The designers thougtfully have included modules and additional options that will keep the game going as well as the tools to help you and the rest of the players come up with creative and fun ideas on the fly that will make you feel like you are in your very own TV show WITHOUT expecting you to know a lot of lore about the properties that inspired Henshin!
Finally, the design of the book from the art to archetypes make it clear that this is a game made for EVERYONE, not just the "traditional" sorts of gamers. Representation matters, and Henshin makes sure you know that this game is for everyone, and that is super important.
I backed the Kickstarter and I am pleased with the product I received! (P.S. I am the Fandom Menace)
