Players take the role of the guards protecting a castle, or a ninja and traitor trying to sneak in, wreak havoc, and escape. Tactical cards give each side unique abilities, and miniature figures dramatically enhance this tense game of cat and mouse. The night is quiet, but somewhere in the darkness shadows are moving. A ninja and a traitorous samurai sneak into the Lion Clan’s castle, intent on completing their dastardly tasks. Though alert, the Lion guards are as yet unaware that anything is amiss… This tense standalone game pits the Lion against the Scorpion.
As the ninja or the traitor, you will use hidden movement to sneak into the castle, eliminate guards, find your mission objective, and escape. As the guards, you will use your wits and loyal samurai to thwart the sinister Scorpion. In this exciting new game set in the world of Legend of the Five Rings, you will use your limited resources, wits, and guile to outthink and outmaneuver your opponent. Deductive reasoning, planning, and a little luck will determine whether you triumph or meet your fate at the end of three feet of steel.
