Legend of the Five Rings: Emperor Edition-Gempukku Starter Deck Reviews

Legend of the Five Rings- Emperor Edition

Card gamers who enjoy sophisticated and lengthy gaming sessions will find much to admire about “Legend of the Five Rings.”

When it comes to Collectible Card Games (AKA CCG), the ever popular “Magic The Gathering” tends to be the first game to come to mind mainly because it has been around the longest (20 years to be exact). While other CCG games in the 90’s and early 00’s such as “Star Wars CCG” and “Star Trek CCG” had loyal fans, the CCG genre has sadly faded in popularity aside from a few longlasting titles such as the aforementioned MTG and “Pokemon” (which is technically a TCG).

The award-winning game has had countless expansions over the course of the past 18 years, but the latest expansion (that I am reviewing here) is titled “Emperor Edition- Gempukku.”
