Feudal Japan. Your dojo sends an unstoppable group of 27 ninjas to seize control of the Nesutāgēmu temple. Truly, this night will be remembered as the night of the 27 ninja! Upon arrival, you discover that your ninjas are not the only ones with this agenda. Four other dojos have precisely the same plan! A smirk creeps across your face, for two dojos’ weaknesses have been a particular study for your school of martial arts; the smirk stops, and your eyes narrow, as you see the fourth and fifth dojos’ ninjas eyeing you with the same smirk! Not to worry: Your dojo is feared for its secret techniques, known only as incredible rumours. Sagely, you wonder what secret techniques these rivals might bring to bear. In a moment of clarity before the maelstrom of shuriken, you remember the Chinese tradition of wǔxíng, about which the Onmyōji have taught your dojo, in which there are five competing elements: Two over whom you have mastery; two who know your vulnerabilities. Nevertheless, you know you must prevail at the temple of the flying blades!

The Temple of the Flying Blades is a ninja-fighting board game for 2 to 5 players designed by Néstor Romeral Andrés and illustrated by Viole Rodrigo. For 2-3 players only please visit The House of the Flying Blades instead. You can play both games with the Temple, but only 2-3 players with the House. If you already own The House of the Flying Blades you can upgrade to The Temple of the Flying Blades for 10 Eur plus shipping (email me here).
