It’s a deadly game of cat and mouse. A ninja is loose in the house of the Emperor. The samurai dedicated to protecting him must find out where the ninja will strike next and catch him before the Emperor is killed. That’s just what you’ll be doing in Bushido Breaker, a new hidden-movement card game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
It is the Sengoku period, an era of great unrest within the gravely compromised empire of feudal Japan. Your emperor is nothing but a figurehead while the shogun holds the true power. There are many men who desire to hold the title of shogun and then there is You…
Bushido Breaker is a 2-4 player card game that takes, on average, 30 minutes to an hour to play.
Bushido Breaker is a hidden movement game that involves deduction, strategy, reading people, and calculated risks. You choose to play as the ninja or as the samurai while your opponent plays as the rival faction.
As the ninja, You are secretly moving from location to location, killing samurai and/or sabotaging the alarms along the way. Your main goal is to kill all the samurai or sabotage the required number of alarms, before going into the Shogun’s Chamber and assassinating him.
As the samurai, You control up to seven samurai; each in a different location. You are looking to catch the ninja by noticing him in the act of moving locations, sabotaging alarms, etc., or by countering a ninja’s attack and killing him.
The campaign’s a bit more than 1/3 of the way to its goal with still 33 days left on it.
