A CLEVER GAME OF BLUFFING AND DEDUCTION! In feudal Japan, powerful samurai clans battle for dominion over the land. But just being the strongest isn't enough. The powerful Kobayakawa clan shifts allegiance like the wind, bringing victory to the weak. Do you have what it takes to outsmart them? Kobayakawa is a simple card game for 3-6 players. Using just 15 cards, bluff and bet your way to victory over seven rounds.

User Ratings & Reviews

  • Much too random to be interesting, especially given that the last round will almost certainly carry the day.
  • Clever, simple, clean design. Most enjoyable at the higher player counts.
  • A very light bidding game, with simple rules and simple choices. It is very interesting that players must choose between drawing a new card and replacing the Kobayakawa. This gives players two very different means of controlling their odds of victory. Generally, if you hold a high or low card its in your best interest to deflate the Kobayakawa, but if you are stuck in the middle its best to draw and hope for the high- or low-card. The strangest part of this game, is that one player folding could prevent another player from winning, which is a bit counterintuitive for a bidding game.
