L5R - Legend of the 5 Rings

#1 Post by Elric » Fri Aug 13, 2010 6:24 pm

Just curious - has anyone played L5R, or does anyone still have anything for it? I picked up the Wrath of the Emperor starting decks at GenCon for $5, and after doing some more research the game looks pretty cool. It has very involved gameplay and I like the storyline idea. Haven't played it yet, but I'm still reading through the directions... ;)

Anyone?

I've tried to play it many years ago. Still own a ton of cards too. A lot more involved/complex than Magic, but still doable. Many consider it one of the best CCG, but you really have to get into it.
Captain Yid - Hell, for 25 million I'd still play. It's not like he is being dared to eat cat crap or anything.

I played it quite a bit back in it's heyday...but most of my cards have gone the way of the dodo... or the kid i sold them all to when i started getting heavy into deadlands instead...
I may not be perfect, but parts of me are pretty awesome.

Card game? Wait!

I thought it was a mini's game!?



Then I wonder what the hell is in those four heavy boxes I bought way back?
Trolls exist!
They steal your socks. But only the left ones...

...what's with that?
