Showing loyalty to your clan is a big part of Legend of the Five Rings and so when Fantasy Flight Games puts out a selection of new mats for you to choose from, you better make your decision wisely.

L5R Mats

There is a mat for each of the different clans giving you a flavour of their Champions as well as their style and feel in the game. I think the half-and-half style of their designs works really well as it's not cluttered and won't absorb your cards into the background of the art.


I've promised myself that I'm not going to get into this game as I already play Destiny and Game Of Thrones but the factions are looking great, especially Crab, who you can see above with their playmat design.


Mats are one of those things that, while not essential to playing card games, just make things feel cooler when you have them down on the table.


One of the factions, Dragon, in particular, looks like it's going to be very popular and you can see why when you look at the artwork for them as a Clan. They also play really well on the tabletop too.

Which clan do you support?
