Fantasy Flight Games Releases More Information About Legend Of The Five Rings

April 20, 2017 by stvitusdancern

Fantasy Flight Games has released more information about the upcoming release of the new version of Legend of the Five Rings card game.

The biggest difference you will learn right off of the bat is this will no longer be a CCG (collectable card game), but an LCG (Living Card Game).

According to the announcement…

Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game is a player-influenced LCG® that 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 honor.

Each player commands their forces with two separate decks: A Dynasty Deck fills their provinces with characters and holdings and a Conflict Deck consisting of tactics, maneuvers, followers and attachments that 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, with the goal of breaking their opponent’s stronghold and winning the game. But 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, lest they lose everything in their single-minded pursuit of glory.

The Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game Core Set comes with everything a player needs to explore the seven great clans of Rokugan, the Crab Clan, Crane Clan, Dragon Clan, Lion Clan, Phoenix Clan, Scorpion Clan, and Unicorn Clan. It also includes a variety of tokens, cards, and rule sheets that make the Core Set the definitive starting point for the Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game.”

I have a couple of the older sets and the new artwork is just as stunning so from that perspective alone it is worth grabbing the set.

We here are fans of the FFG line of card games as we have and play Star Wars, Game of Thrones, and Lord of the Rings. I think this will make a nice addition to the collection.

What do you think? Will Legend of the Five Rings see a resurgence?
