Since we started selling TC through our site, a large portion of customers is Japanese, which made us explore the web in order to find any content in Japanese related to Tank Chess (タンクチェス). We were pleasantly surprised to find out how much people have written about this game.

A site very similar to BGG has a page dedicated to Tank Chess and Fun Set

The following links are just a part of the content we came across and a common feature is that they all praise the game, the quality of the components, and especially the gameplay.
