How to play (rules)

 

Deal 12 cards (= a hand) to each player. The remaining cards (= deck) are placed face down in front of everyone. Each player draws 1 card from the deck in turn. If you can collect 3 cards to form a name of Sengoku general, then show it to everyone. When all cards from the deck are gone, the player with the least number of cards in hand will be the winner!
 

*The number of family crests drawn on one card indicates the number of Sengoku generals who have that kanji letter in their names. The more family crests drawn on a card, the better chance to complete a general’s name using that card!

* The actual card size is the same as the standard playing cards (8.9×5.7cm). 

Why is this game fun to play?

 
  • The same kanji letter is frequently used in many of Sengoku-bushos’ names!
  • Each “Family Name Card” has 1 family crest drawn on it, but each Kanji letter card = “First Name Card” has multiple family crests drawn.
  • The number of family crests drawn on 1 Kanji letter card indicates the possibility of completing the names of Sengoku-bushos.
  • The cards with many family crests are “precious cards”! Don’t discard them, keep them in hand and you will have a bigger chance of completing a Sengoku-busho name!
  • Your strategic approach on how to complete a Sengoku-busho name will be tested in this game!
  • Strategic approach will be required in winning this game, and that’s why this game is so much fun because all players need to really use their brain power to win it!
