It's a card game with a Japanese setting (if not Japanese, something in the Orients). I remember samurais and either shoguns or dojos (yea...). It has been too long since I have played and I have attempted to look it up with no avail. If I can think of anything else to add to this, I will try.

PS. By the way, there is no board to this game. I remember a medium size box with cards.

Please give us more information. What did you do with these cards? How did you play or win the game? Was this a card game only, or was there a board, too? Any bit of information helps.

Could it be this one? Honor of the Samurai

I remember that it was in pretty wide distribution at the time.

lol, was editing when you posted your reply. I'm still trying to remember what the game was about. I'll update the first post in a few minutes.

Oh wow, I think that was the game. I don't remember dice, but my cousins and I may have not been playing with them since we probably lost them at some point. The card work looks familiar. Going to read about it and see if it is the one.

Thanks grandslam, this may actually be the game. I'll have to consult with my cousins.

@Rgordon, I wish we had Ikura, that would have been fun to play at 12-14 years old. XD

Thank you rmanning, but I don't remember us having to open packets. It was just a small box card game. Looking at the five ring game, none of the cards seem familiar.
