I knew something like this would be the answer
No interest in playing guards at all?

I'm looking forward to both!
The management aspect of playing the guards, or the immersion in the individual ninja and their cooperation, either sounds interesting!

But I 'm sure that like many game owners, I'll end up playing mostly the guards...

P.s. Hi Peer! I'm Brimstoner over on Kickstarter...

I'll end up playing both. Like all asymmetrical games, I want to see it from all perspectives plus the best way to learn one's weakness is to play them for their strengths. No better way to learn.

Hey guys,

Both are cool, guards will get even better if we unlock Minato, he's a real bruiser and will offer a fun alternative to the more reserved and calculating Kenta.

I never played one against three in a board game so I think I am going to try the guards first.

I'm going with Guards. There's already a lot of board and video games where you play the sneaky ninja assassin, and here you can finally turn it around. Besides, I like the game master-ish aspect of it, and going 1 vs all

Both, its a bit like SJ's Ogre, you have to play both sides to get to the real essence of the game.
How many times have you made a play and then straight away seen the weaknesses in it even when your opponent hasn't? The next time you see an opponent make that same play against you, you instantly know the best way to react!

I'll probably end up being Guards more often than not. Especially as we have Minato ready to flatten some pesky ninja!

Definitely Guards. I feel like they will have to be more reactive and tactical and thus prove a greater challenge then then Ninja. Also I love the art/sculpts for the guards.
