Product Description

Ni-Shi-Ki (two-four-chess) is the chess-like board game, using cards as chessmen, that features conflicts between warring states in Medieval Japan.

Cards representing Units (like spearmen or bowmen) and Warlords (like Oda Nobunaga or Uesugi Kenshin) are put on the sliding plates. Plates with cards are ready to slide over the surface of the game board to attack the enemy cards or enemy castle. Each battle is resolved by comparing the sums of strength of each card and a die roll.
