I'm in love with this game. From the art to the lore and the actual gameplay, it's 5 stars to me for sure. Legend of the Five Rings immerses you in a mysthical and deeply atmospheric adventure, while at the same time being a challenging strategic and tactical game, with multiple variables that have to be considered and dynamically re-adapted in your plans and asymmetric player factions. The quality of the box is outstanding. Now, yes, you'll need three core boxes if you want all the options for all the clans. But that's how LCGs go, really, and still way better than CCGs. Also, you could share the boxes with friends, if you only really want to focus on a single or on some clans.
