Take the role of a ninja student during his final trial: An all-out battle with his classmates! Facing other young students, you are cocky and less aware of your own abilities. Players simulate this by facing their cards outward, so only their opponents can see them. This forces players to strategize and bluff in unique and entertaining ways.
As the game progresses, players accumulate hit points. For each hit point a player receives, he turns one card to face himself. This allows for some much-needed secrecy from your opponents, as well as a strategic advantage. But be careful, if you get 3 hit points, you are knocked out of the game!
But that's not all! Players will also have their own special items at their disposal to mix things up!
If you are the last ninja standing, you win the game! Please see the Rulebook and video below for more gameplay details.
The game includes a Rule Booklet, 66 Fight Cards with fun ninja illustrations, 42 Item Cards to surprise your opponents, and 12 Team Cards for optional team vs. team play. More cards might be included! (See Stretch Goals).
