Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game is a player-influenced LCG (Living Card Game). It sees two players take on the role of one of the seven Great Clans of Rokugan, vying for military and political control of the land while maintaining Rokugan society’s strict code of honour.
How the game is played
Each player commands their forces with two separate decks. A Dynasty Deck fills their provinces with characters and holdings. Meanwhile, their Conflict Deck consists of tactics, manoeuvres, followers and attachments; these can be used to turn the tide in a struggle for supremacy. During a game, players will engage in conflicts, both political and military based; their goal is to break their opponent’s stronghold and win the game. However, the rules of society are absolute, and even in the fire of battle and heat of Rokugan’s courts, clans must remember the tenets of Bushidō. Otherwise, they will lose everything in their single-minded pursuit of glory.
The Legend of the Five Rings Core Set
