The Lion Clan’s castle is well-guarded, with two moats and sentries. Patrols walk a regular path around the compound, watching for anything amiss. Of course, the ninja from the Scorpion Clan isn’t easily seen or heard — and what’s more, he has a traitor accomplice on the inside. The ninja and the traitor must carry out their mission and escape the compound before daybreak; meanwhile, the guards must do their duty to protect the castle.
Ninja has two teams: the guards and the intruders (the ninja and the traitor). For a three player game, there are two intruder players and one guard player. For a four-player game, the two guard players each control half of the guards (there are two types of guard figurines) and they each have half as many cards, but the gameplay is pretty similar.
