Houkago Saikoro Club is a manga series written by Hiro Nakamichi, which was first serialized in the Monthly Shonen Sunday in March 2013. Anime News Network describes the manga’s story as such:
”The manga centers on Aya, who moves and starts to attend an all-girls high school in Kyoto. Her first friend is her reserved classmate Miki. After school one day, the committee chairwoman Midori takes them both to an analogue game specialty shop called “Saikoro Club” (Dice Club). There, they start playing a German board game without thinking. Thus begins Aya and Miki’s search for fun through the world of analogue games.”
