In 12th Century Japan, you rested after the Gempei War, retiring your ninjato sword, desiring a life of peace. But, once again, the ruling families call for your special skills to establish their honor. You will need stealth and strength, cunning and intrigue, and the swiftness of your Kodachi sword!
In Kodachi, you seek to steal treasures by facing guards in one of two ways. With strength, you must play cards with higher numbers than the guards. With stealth, you play cards with lower numbers than the guards. Successfully acquired treasures can be used to generate rumors, bribe envoys, and strengthen your skills. By playing acquired envoy cards, players can gain clan tokens, and when the last available clan token is taken, the game ends and player with the highest score wins!
