Ninja: Legend of the Scorpion Clan is a new board game coming from Alderac Entertainment Group. Designed by veteran game designer Fréderic Moyersoen, Ninja features fast play, hidden movement, limited information, bluff and guile. It is sure to challenge players and bring hours of enjoyment.

Ninja marks a major excursion of the vaunted Legend of the Five Rings property into a board game format. L5R, as it is called by its fans, has become a staple of hobby gaming over its 16 years, thanks in large part to its loyal and devoted fans. It has won numerous awards for both its collectible card game and its role-playing games versions, and the property has also spawned novels and a miniatures game. Ninja: Legend of the Scorpion Clan brings the depth and detail of L5R’s fantasy samurai world to board gamers in a fast-playing exciting, and accessible manner.

    looking forward to this, i’ve always been interested in the world of L5R, but find that its difficult to jump into the card game.

    how close is the relationship between AEG and FFG anyways? i would love to see a LCG format for L5R…
