The land of Ninjas and Samurai brings this themed Samurai chess set to you! Although
there are no Ninjas in this set, they figured prominently in the Samurai history
as the 'dark-side' of the Japanese war culture. The Samurai were generally rather
upright in their dealings, even in war, and held to codes of warfare as a general
The Samurai were also renowned fighters, and usually were well-versed in some
form of martial artist skills. The sword was their weapon of choice, and almost
all were skillful with the bow as well. This set brings you an excellent diversity
of these elite warriors of Japan--from the Shogun 'king', to the warlord bishops,
and the mounted horsemen, every piece will evoke a lively interest!
Demonstrating the traditional building style of the Japanese, a pagoda tower
fashions the castle of defense on every flank. Rearing in a smart manner, the
horsemen are ready to dash to the coming conflict, without flinching at the
odds. The rank of 8 Samurai await orders from the command, and the charming
queen in her fashionable dress takes her place beside her finely clad husband.
In well-matched colors, the red vs blue color theme sits very well with both
players. Whether you have the red or the blue, you will be pleased with the
shades and realistic figures at your command!
