Kamakura is a card game of feudal Japanese warfare in which you attempt to defeat an opponent by taking their territories before they take yours. This is done by carefully choosing combinations of weapons, soldiers, and arrow barrages to attack with while defending your own territories with a myriad of defensive techniques. Strategy, deception, and bravery will be your most valuable assets in the complex and varied game of Kamakura.

Is it easy to learn?
Going over the rules takes roughly 15 minutes. With a couple practice rounds, you'll be battling your friends in no time!

Who's it for?
It's easy enough for all ages!

How Long does it take to play?
In general, each match ranges from 5 to 15 minutes.

How many people can play with a single deck?
2 or 4 players.

How Competitive is it?
Kamakura can be played casually or competitively. It's a game that's as intense as you want it to be.

What's the difference between version 1 and 2?
Kamakura was successfully funded by Kickstarter. Version 1 is the result of that campaign. However, with the first run of printing, there were complications such as color inconsistency and poor coating that causes the cards to wear easily. Version 2 has since been released with consistent color, strong coating, added "Clan Power" cards and an updated rule set that makes the game even more fun and balanced!

Is Version 1 still playable?
Absolutely! it's just a slightly different game.

Beautiful cards. Great game! Basic enough to easily learn yet with subtle rule changes it can become more challenging. Really nice game to add to my collection. Thanks, Sharyn

I love this game because it's unique, and you can develop strategies as you play along (it can get pretty intense). But you can start playing Kamakura right away and keep it simple. Great quality cards with beautiful, unique art work! We use one deck for four of us to play. But you can use more decks for larger parties. The matching posters frame beautifully!
