WizKids will release Kodachi a historical card game of hand management and push-your-luck daring in May.

Set in 12th Century Japan, players are retired warriors of the Genpei War. Now the ruling families have pressed them into service again to establish their honor with the stealth, strength, and cunning that only those wielding a Kodachi sword possess. Players must use stealth or strength to steal treasure and use it to bribe envoys of powerful clans, to help spread rumors about enemy nobility, or strengthen skills.  After all the clan tokens are gained by playing envoys, the game ends, and the player with the highest score wins.

The box includes 162 cards, 10 tokens, and a rulebook. The game is for 2 – 4 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 45 minutes. MSRP is $19.99.
