Description Edit | History

Box blurb translated from Japanese:

An irregular trick taking game where various individual abilities of persons forming history are tangled together.

Who will use their powers to adequately handle the events of the lands? Who will leave their name behind in The Chronicle?

This is the 2009 release from Kanai Factory.

Recommended suggestions for beginners from the designer Seiji Kanai:

  • Play with 3 or 4 players. 5 or 6 players make the game more difficult to control.
  • Until you are familiar with all the cards effects, remove the following History cards from the game: "Dark age" (have evil cards), "Coronation" (use three next history cards) and "Meeting with a dragon" (use two previous history cards).
  • Use the optional rule "several history cards" and draw 2 history cards per round. Each history card honour rewards is resolved independently.

9 Player Aid for Chronicle v.1.0
3 small player aids - but these fit on one A4 sheet. Print & cut into 3 separate aids, which will fit in the Box (Z-man version). If you want to laminate, suggest you set print scale to 95%. This will allow a small laminate margin and still fit into box. Have fun!
