Clan Supremacy! How to Win in Legend of the Five Rings How to Protect Your Cards

0 Comment(s)

Legend of the Five Rings (L5R) challenges you to navigate the intricate connections between politics, fate, warfare, land and honor to vanquish enemy clans. Protecting your cards with Legends of the Five Rings card sleeves is a must, as the rich detail of the game will make it a favorite.

Suggested Legends of the Five Rings Card Sleeves

Legend of the Five Rings includes 247 cards, each bearing gorgeous artwork that is evocative of the spirit of the game. Keep them looking new with standard-size sleeves like these:

Sleeve Kings Card Game Card Sleeves (SKS-8810)

Standard Card Game Premium Sleeves (SKS-9905)

Perfect Fit Internal(Inner) Card Sleeves (SKS-7711)

All three of the options listed above are made of acid-free polypropylene. The SKS-8810 and SKS-7711 sleeves are 60 microns thick and come in packs of 110 sleeves per pack. For added protection, you may prefer the premium sleeves (SKS-9905). Premium sleeves are more than 50 percent thicker, at 100 microns. However, you will have to buy more sets; the premium sleeves are sold in 55-sleeve packs.

Win with Honor in Legend of the Five Rings

The key to winning Legend of the Five Rings is to be deliberate in how you approach each phase of play. The Dynasty Phase sets the foundation for your clan’s strength by establishing which characters and holdings you will have. It’s wise to spend some Fate tokens to keep a strong character active in multiple rounds. Don’t overlook the additional strengths your Holdings give you. Finally, remember that the first player to pass on taking any more actions in the Dynasty phase gets an extra Fate token. If you feel good about your hand, there’s no need to continue taking more actions just because you can.

The Draw Phase is all about Honor, and your approach to this phase may depend on whether you’re pursuing an aggressive strategy or a more careful one. If your instinct is to try and crush enemy clans in open conflict, you may choose to “spend” a higher amount of your Honor to draw more cards. If you want to keep the Honor path to victory open, you may bid more conservatively. Note how your opponent behaves during this phase; it will be a big clue to how they intend to approach the game.

In the Conflict Phase, success depends on the choices you make when beginning a conflict. Your earlier choices will be more driven by the type of strategy you have planned than by assessing your enemy’s strengths and weaknesses. As the game progresses, you should be able to make more informed decisions. For instance, choosing characters to use in your conflict is tricky until you know the strengths of the province you’re attacking. Being patient and keeping track of both players' strengths will serve you well.

The Fate Phase of each turn is a kind of accounting phase. Assess the amount of Fate and Honor on each character from that round, and deal with them accordingly. One Fate token is also added to each ring that went unclaimed in the Conflict phase, making them more attractive for the next round.

The Regroup Phase is for tidying up and preparing for the next round. Nothing done here affects your chances of winning, but it can be an extra few moments to assess where you are and what you hope to accomplish in the next round.

Once immersed in the world of L5R, you’re destined to return again and again. Find Legend of the Five Rings card sleeves that do justice to the glory of your clan by clicking the link below.
