Attack on Titan: The Last Stand

First Edition

Not a TTRPG, But the Closest Official Option
Contents

Publisher Description

A GAME BY ANTOINE BAUZA AND LUDOVIC MAUBLANC

Play as your favorite Attack on Titan character … or as the Titan! Attack on Titan: The Last Stand is based on the highly successful Attack on Titan anime series.

In the game, one player takes on the role of a fearsome Titan, threatening the last remaining human city. The other players act as brave Heroes, as they try to protect the weak and preserve the supply depot in the last bastion of humanity!

Not an RPG, But it is Attack on Titan Tabletop Combat [ edit ]

Unfortunately, the creators of Attack on Titan have yet to license an official role-playing game, which means that (currently) unofficial games are your own real option for Attack on Titan tabletop role-playing.

However, if you really want to play an official Attack on Titan game, and at least have the fun of combat with official AoT game pieces ... or if you just want to use those pieces for your unofficial TTRPG, you may wish to buy the 2017 board game Attack on Titan: The Last Stand.

The Game

Like an RPG, Attack on Titan: The Last Stand splits the group, only instead of a DM and players there's a single "Titan player", and everyone else plays the heroes from the show.  The entire game focuses on only a single combat (the fight to defend the Trost supply depot), and while there are (cardboard) minis and dice, gameplay is clearly that of a board game, not of a "board game that wants to be a role-playing game" (like say Hero Quest or Gloomhaven).

The game also comes with a cardboard tower and titan, the latter of which has slots on it to allow (cardboard) miniatures to be placed on it, simulating the way the characters of Attack on Titan use their mobility gear to scale a titan.  This item is also probably the most attractive piece of the game for those who don't plan to actually play it, as I'm not aware of any other way to get a scalable (cardboard) titan mini.

Should You Buy It?

Again, this is not an RPG: if you buy the game expecting one you will be disappointed.  But, if you're a fan of Attack on Titan who refuses to play unofficial products ... or if you just want a backup game for nights when some of your players don't show ... or if you want the scalable cardboard titan "mini" for your unofficial RPG ... Attack on Titan: The Last Stand is not a bad option.

If you pick up a copy on Amazon it will cost you less than $25 (as of July '22), and with over a hundred reviews on that site the game has a very high 4.7 out of 5 stars, so it clearly is a fun game that lots of Attack on Titan fans have enjoyed playing ... it's just, unfortunately, not an RPG.
