Boost The Temple of the Flying Blades! You can preorder as many copies as you wish.

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 rumors. 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 5 players designed by Néstor Romeral Andrés and illustrated by Viole Rodrigo (special thanks to Nathan Morse for revisions and narrative). It includes a variant for 4 players. You can also play The House of the Flying Blades with this set.

The artwork is in progress. You can see some drafts of the board, case logo, counters and cards on the nestorbooster site. Click on the images to enlarge. We will update the images as the artwork gets closer to the final product so please come back every 3-4 days to see the progress.

Components: 2 cotton cases (house and temple), a board (pad) depicting the House of the Flying Blades (9x9 cells), A 6×9 board (pad) that transforms the 9x9 house into a 15x9 temple, 160 ninja counters in 2 dojo colours. Additionally, you can purchase chibi ninja (ninja-meeples) separately so you can use cool, thematic pieces instead of the flat counters. The chibi ninja are made of 9mm thick laser-cut acrylic. You can see the projected shapes below.

Notes and goodies:

The Temple contains all the components of The House already (plus some more). So you don't need to preorder both. The fueling indicator adds up the preorders for both games.

If preorders reach 1000 Eur, all preordered copies will include a special turn marker: The Flying Blade; a 'silver' acrylic shuriken with 3 or 5 blades, depending on the game.

Preorders above 100 Eur (or 0.16 BTC) will receive a nestorgames backpack. Remember that preoders in Bitcoin have a 30% discount instead of 20%. If you wish to pay with Bitcoin please email me. Shipping is only 9 € no matter how many copies you preorder.

Final price:
35,00 € ($ 48.30)
28,00 € ($ 38.64)
or 0.07 BTC

Goal = 500€
Ends: Mar-10
