Zipang Portable is an exciting, fast-paced card game for 2–6 players. Players are taken back to the 17th century in the distant land of Zipang—the ancient name for Japan meaning “The Island of Gold.”
It is the Sengoku period, a period of bloody civil war that affected everyone: not only brilliant military strategists, fearless warriors, and stealthy ninjas, but also enchanting princesses, rich aristocrats, and venerable monks—even the almighty Emperor himself…
In this “pick one, play one” card game, you must master the skills of these characters, battling with captains, subverting defenses with ninjas, or inciting peasant uprisings. But be sure to keep your honor intact, lest the Emperor frown upon you and retract his support. The game both plays quickly and supports deep strategy, so you’ll want to play it again and again.
“This game is extremely addicting,” said Rick Martin in his review at the Armchair General.
Zipang Portable is available for $19 on Kickstarter, providing a discount for those who want to get their hands on it first. Additionally, for $70, retail outlets can purchase five copies of the game, each including all stretch goals and digital rewards.
To learn more about the game, which includes 30 character cards, 30 Mangoku coins, 2 reference cards, and a rule sheet, please visit the Kickstarter.
