Some ads are hidden when you have more than 10 karma.

Gold

Gold is the currency you can buy to change into Jpops, or buy cards in our game. You can not transfer Jpops back to gold. You can buy gold here. You gain 10 gold everyday you login into JpopAsia.com

Game

You can join and play our board game where you can collect cards from your favorite artists and trade them with other members. A cards value is determined based on the popularity and activity of the artist or group.

Going bankrupt

If you roll the dice, you will receive an offer depending on the cell you land on. Most offers expire in 24 hours, which give you the time to acquire the required Jpops. If you are not able to pay or let the offer expire, you will go bankrupt and we will sell your cards for half the current value in the market, until the debt is paid off. You might lose all your cards this way!

Your game position and total round numbers will reset to 1.

Remember that you always have 24 hours to collect the Jpops to pay for your outstanding amount. You can either get Jpops through adding videos, lyrics etc., trading cards, or buying Jpops.
