In 12th century Japan, the Minamoto and Taira clans vie for power while retired Emperor Go-Shirakawa plays his rivals against one another. One of the three factions will triumph to impose the coming social order. In the shadow of these elite powers, a few ninja scheme to exploit the chaos. Daring raids, skill mastery, and subtle intrigue are essential to establishing one’s honor. When the new era dawns, one ninja will flourish as the Ninjato, the Invisible Sword of the ruling family.
Ninjato is the newest board game from CrossCut Games, makers of Galactic Emperor, and published by Z-Man Games, IELLO, and White Goblin Games.

As it is important (due to the rumour card availability) that ALL first place players choose whether to take the house points or to take a rumour card, BEFORE the second place players choose, I thought it would make sense to create a tracker for this.
First, for each house in that particular round's turn order, work out who is first and second, and give them the chits. Then the first place makes their choice and places the chit on the appropriate square, the second retains their chit.
Repeat for each house.
Then, again in house turn order, as before, the second player places their chit on the remaining square for the house.
This saves having to remember who took what, and for which colour, especially if a player wins two houses and takes different options.
Reference sheet useful for quick referencing and provides a structured summary for teaching the game.

Simple, yet functional black and white tuck boxes for Ninjato cards and tiles in standard sleeves: Guard/Elite Guard/Sensei Skill, Dojo, Rumor/Envoy. Color: No; Paper Size: US Letter; Font: Felix Titling.
Ninjato solo variant.
Basically these rules add a sort of a "bot player" into the game, which tries to simulate the presence of another player while You try to score as much honor as possible.
I deem this as a poor attempt in trying to make a non-soloable game soloable! But it seems to be playable.
